A bit of background on where you grew up?
I grew up in Cardiff, South Wales. I studied at University of the Cardiff where I obtained my Diploma in Dental Hygiene. I decided to stay local to live with my family. I studied Diploma in Dental Hygiene. I attended courses for teeth whitening and also, I am trained in facial aesthetics. Prior to dental hygiene I studied dental nursing and I have been nursing up until now.
Passion in dentistry?
My passion for dentistry is to create healthy beautiful smiles. Also helping patients to overcome their fear of dentists by putting them at ease with reassurance as I would like them to come back again by offering them a painless experience. Education is a powerful preventative tool which I believe is essential for patients to understand importance of optimal oral health.
What is your favourite spot in Dubai?
My favourite spot in Dubai is Madinat Jumeriah, the beautiful blue sea and white sand at Jumeirah beach and the buggy/abra rides throughout the resort is incredible. I am a big lover of desserts and in Dubai there are plenty to choose from!
Favourite movie – Home alone it’s a holiday classic!
Favourite hobby – beach swimming to enjoy the sound of the waves and reflect on myself.
Healthy habit – optimal oral hygiene is a must! This is what I recommended to my patients.
Brushing twice daily with a powered toothbrush for a minimum of 2minutes. The toothbrush should have a pressure sensor and 2-minute timer to support you with your cleaning.
Interdental cleaning with either floss tape and or interdental brushes at least once a day. Using an alcohol-free mouthwash, a different time to brushing. ‘Spit don’t rinse’ to allow the toothpaste to do its magic!
I was a baker, during the coronavirus pandemic. I started an online business called sweetlittlethings. NYC cookies was my absolute favourite, big and chunky yet soft and gooey in the inside!
