Jenny qualified as a dentist in 1999 and worked in three NHS and private family dental practices before opening her own practice.

As a child she was incredibly nervous about visiting the dentist, and even remembers locking herself in the toilet at a practice and refusing to come out!
She knows that many people feel similarly about visiting a dentist, particularly for the first time. Every part of her care will be geared towards making the experience as enjoyable and positive for you as it is possible to be. Her professional care will be gentle, kind and always in your best interests.
