"Since graduating in dentistry from 'Barts and the London' University in 2013, I have moved from London to Lincoln and in 2015 achieved my RCSEd. As a healthcare professional I aim to prevent, diagnose and treat oral diseases and problems that affect the mouth and teeth.

Since moving to Lincoln I have started horse-riding weekly embracing the new and exciting opportunity to develop and enjoy different experiences. I thoroughly enjoy swimming and go regularly to the pool and have in recent years competed and won numerous medals and certificates. I take pleasure in my work and have a keen interest in cosmetic treatments including: white fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges and teeth whitening. I have also completed the first stage of Toxins (Botox) and Dermal Fillers training.
