I’m passionate about getting kids to actually enjoy coming to the dentist. You’re setting them up with good habits for the future – from simply learning how to brush teeth properly, to the difference that good dietary choices can make.
I studied dentistry at Glasgow University but it was when I was working in Manchester that I found what was really rewarding for me as a dentist – helping children feel more positive about dental treatment. It feels like a real achievement when you help a nervous kid to feel happy about visiting the dentist more regularly. Here in Jersey, we’ve been able to introduce open day initiatives to help more parents bring their children to experience the relaxed, family-friendly environment here. Kids are great fun to deal with, they’ll always tell you the truth!
