Jenny qualified as a dentist in 1999 and has since worked in three NHS and private family dental practices. If you ask any of her patients, she believes they will say that she is passionate about patient care. 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.
She is also a skilled cosmetic practitioner and loves helping patients achieve the smile and confidence they desire.
