I enjoy helping patients with their own journey in improving their own oral hygiene and seeing the results of their hard work.

After qualifying at the dental hospital, I worked in a few practices in Lanarkshire to help hone my skills to provide a better service for patients. I’ve worked in practices with a diverse amount of patients with different wants and needs which as both been rewarding and challenging

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends

Hi everyone,As with most things I hadn’t been to the dentist for almost 2 years…. My own decision because I was... isolating. During that time I broke 1 tooth and a crown came off.I’m very happy to say that although I needed to get both teeth out…a month apart….I was amazed that although I was advised to take painkillers after a couple of hours when the injection would be waring off , I forgot and, was pain free 100% .So, thanks very much Claire, my dentist and all the other professionals that work there….Take care and stay safe and well, COVID-19 is still out there… more

Extremely poor dental work. I paid £134 for a filling replacement, my tooth was cracked in the process and the work... done was substandard, leaving me an open gap at the bottom of my tooth. I contacted the practice to allow an opportunity to rectify the situation and asked for a senior dentist to have a look at it and this was met with extremely poor customer service and dis-interest. My overall experience was traumatic, I am left to find another dentist to assess and rectify these issues as the practice manager refused me another appointment with a senior dentist to have the issue more
