Dental Therapist

Dip DHT (Ncl)

GDC Number: 184083

Jen has spent 10+ years working in the dental field, having started as a dental nurse in 2007 in Gosforth. She graduated as a dental therapist at Newcastle University with a diploma in dental hygiene and therapy and gained SAAD qualification in inhalation sedation in 2012. Before joining Queensway in 2013, Jen spent two years working at Teesside University as a clinical supervisor.

Where would a patient usually find you in the practice?

In main building in surgery 9 alongside my nurses Paula and Kelly

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Managing to treat extremely anxious patients (both adults and children) effectively, when a patient thanks me for helping them, smiles after treatment and feels confident coming to see me or when children skip into the surgery and their parents tell us they love coming to see us.

What do you enjoy doing out of work?

Spending time with family (sometimes this is limited due to the hour commute to/from work each way) and I also love travelling when I take annual leave - I love visiting new places but a favourite would be Santorini.

What makes you smile?

My family - I have a big family and love spending quality time with them, my friends - particularly my fellow dental therapists at QDC as I am guaranteed to laugh every day and a close third would be peanut butter!
