St. Annes Dental Clinic team

Lucy Smith – Administrative Lead

After leaving sixth form in 2013 I was not sure what I wanted to do as a career. My friend Jaime worked at the practice at the time and informed me there was a job going so I thought id go for it and see where it takes me… 10 years later I am here as admin lead!

I started as a trainee dental nurse and once qualified, I realised I enjoyed the admin side so went down that career path gaining qualifications in; Business administration, higher dental reception lead skills and advanced dental practice manager. I am always looking to learn new things therefore have recently enrolled in an HR course. St Annes Dental Clinic has opened a lot of opportunities for me, and I am extremely grateful.

I would not be where I am if it were not for St Annes Dental Clinic and the support of Gary. I am incredibly happy in my job role and working with a great team.

Natasha Street – Implant Team Lead

I have been doing Dental Nursing since 2012 and qualified in 2015. I started my career working in community dental services, so I got to experience so much in my training! I loved the sedation and surgical side of it all. I then went on to work at a private practice, which was amazing but just not for me. I messaged Lucy who works at St Anne’s Dental Clinic every year asking if there was a job available but there never was! Finally, in 2019 there was so I applied straight away and came in for the interview. I had to wait about a week to find out if I was successful or not and it felt like forever!

When I started here, I had no extra qualifications, but I had worked doing implants and sedation before so had an interest! I was in general surgery for a few months then I started being trained to work with our boss Gary, I loved it! Within months I was put onto the radiography course and qualified in October 2021 then I got put on the sedation course within weeks and qualified for that in 2022.

I work in surgery and doing implants. I love it so much, where I am now in my career is where I have always wanted to be, and it is all thanks to Gary believing in me and giving me the opportunity to do my post qualifications! I am sure there will be more courses for me in the near future as all you can do here is progress more and more!

Leigha Kelly – Clinical Lead

I started at St Anne’s Dental Clinic in 2014 as a trainee dental nurse as I wanted a new challenge and a career, in which I could progress in. I thoroughly enjoyed the training I received and after qualifying as a dental nurse I was eager to do more so went onto the dental radiography course, the opportunities that are given working at St Anne’s Dental Clinic are amazing and they have always supported me through courses throughout my career.
I now have qualifications in orthodontic nursing and impression-taking. I am now working towards completing a treatment coordinator course. From starting as a trainee dental nurse 9 years ago to now being the practice clinical lead, I could not think of a better place to work.

Manesh – Dentist

I did my Vocational Training under the Supervision of Mr Hills in 2009. The experience that I gained at St Anne’s Dental Clinic has helped me to improve my clinical skills and knowledge of dentistry.

The surgery has state-of-the-art modern equipment and materials necessary to advance the basic skills gained at Dental School.

I would thoroughly recommend St Annes Dental Clinic to any newly qualified dentist wishing to complete Vocational training and further their practising career.
