Dental hygienist and therapist
Hello, I’m Natalie!
I am very happy to join the team here at Clinic95.
Originally from Edinburgh, earlier this year I relocated to Oxford where I work full time.
My role at Clinic95 is both a dental hygienist and dental therapist. A dental therapist is able to carry out the same treatment as a hygienist as well as treatment that your dentist has prescribed, such as fillings, teeth whitening and x-rays as well as carrying out a wide range of children’s dentistry.
I started in this profession 10 years ago as a trainee dental nurse back home in Edinburgh. It was then that I found my passion for patient care and I knew then I wanted to progress further in my career. The most rewarding part of my job is helping patients, especially when it comes to overcome their fears and anxieties.
I get asked a lot about mouthwash and which one patients should be using, and the short answer is, mouthwash is a myth! Unless specifically recommended to you by your dental care professional to target a specific problem, please don't waste your money.
My favourite dental quote is "Be true to your teeth, or they will be false to you."
I'm looking forward to meeting you.
