I first emigrated to the UK from Canada in 1999. After Studying at Guy’s Hospital in London I received my diploma in Dental Hygiene in 2001. Since then I have worked in hospital’s and private practices all over London, settling at the Dental Health Centre, where I have worked for the past 12 years. My interest in psychology and holistic development prompted me to study for and achieve a Master’s Degree in Psychotherapy and Healing and then to undertake post graduate studies in CBT and Mindfulness. My years of study and work contribute to my compassionate approach to all patients – especially the nervous ones!
