The best thing about my job is the combination of science, medicine, dentistry, art and caring. These all combine to change people and enhance their quality of life forever. To see that daily and to be involved in that change is a privilege and fun.

If I wasn’t an orthodontist we can all dream but to be a rock star or even a brilliant pianist would be amazing.

When I’m not straightening teeth I love sailing and skiing but time is always short. My main joy is simply being with my family.

The best thing about my job is sending people off with a smile they can show off and be proud of for a very long time.

If I wasn’t a specialist orthodontist I would be a chef or bake cakes.

When I’m not straightening teeth I am busy going for a run or running around after my two little boys!

The best thing about my job is getting to know my patients and seeing their confidence grow as their teeth get straighter.

If I wasn’t a specialist orthodontist I would be Aston Villa’s top goal scorer (no jokes on how it wouldn’t take much!).

When I’m not straightening teeth I can be found in the garage building an AC Cobra replica!

The best thing about my job is working with a great team, meeting new people and creating smiles for my patients.

If I wasn’t an orthodontic therapist I would love to be a snowboard instructor somewhere in Austria.

Trainee Orthodontic Therapist

The best thing about my job is getting to know my patients along their orthodontic journey and seeing how happy they are with their end results.

If I wasn’t an orthodontic therapist I would be baking and decorating cakes, or I do fancy myself as a forensic scientist!

When I’m not straightening teeth I am baking and spending time with family and friends. I have four nieces to keep me on my ‘princess’ toes!
