Excellent care requires excellent people

Every person in our Practice is essential to your care so we endeavour to recruit, train and retain the best people. Everyone who joins us understands our expectations and receives regular training and personal development to ensure we all share the same ethos of putting our patients at the heart of everything we do.

By providing a caring environment for everyone, we engender loyalty. As the saying goes – we don’t expect loyalty, we earn it. Our practice is part of Rodericks Dental, a company with over 65 practices across the country. We are different because our company is run by dentists – for patients.

Although I do miss nursing and being able to ‘shut off’ when I go home, I have a fantastic team who make it all worthwhile. I work full time at the practice and juggle my work with being a mother to a cheeky 2 year old Phoebe who keeps me on my toes! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and shopping!
