Combined Diploma in Dental Therapy & Hygiene University of Liverpool 2009

I started my career in 2000 as a dental nurse, I thoroughly enjoyed the job and quickly realised I wanted to progress within the dental team. I spent the next few years gaining qualifications to enable me to apply for dental hygiene and therapy. In 2007 I was offered a place at Liverpool dental school and qualified in 2009, I have been part of Belmore Dental Team since.
A big part of my job satisfaction is working with my patient's, getting to know them and making their trip to Belmore dental as enjoyable as possible. I aim to achieve the best quality of care for our patients. Many of my patient I see on a regular basis and have developed a strong relationship with them.
As a dental hygienist and therapist, I carry out a variety of treatments, including: general cleaning, periodontal treatment, tooth whitening, oral hygiene instruction, diet advice, dental fillings, children's extractions and many other treatments. A big part of my job is motivating patients and teaching techniques on good oral hygiene. At Belmore dental we carry out complex treatments including dental implants, advanced bridge work, veneers and crowns. Good after care of any restorative work is essential, I aim teach patient's how to clean and maintain their teeth to the best possible standard. Over the last few years I have been on various courses to keep me up to date and keep my clinical skills at a high standard. These include an aesthetic white filling course, to achieve optimum aesthetics for patients having white filling on front and back teeth. My most recent achievements have been more focused on facial aesthetics including Botox, fillers, PRGF- this is a cutting-edge technique used to re boost the skin turn over and chemical peels. I am also involved in promoting good oral hygiene and diet in children, I often visit local schools to teach children good oral hygiene and diet habits. I held an open day for primary school children here at Belmore dental where local schools brought the children to visit. This was very successful in introducing children to the dental environment and making the visit educational and fun.
I am married to Joe McEnhill and sister in law to Sinead McEnhill. With their being so many dentists in the family you would think we talk shop a lot out of work! However, with two young children keeping Joe and I busy, we spend our weekends enjoying family life. We have a daughter Emilia who is 5 years and Noah who is 3 years, both are full of energy and keeping us on our toes.
Thank fully we all work very well together and support each other. Working alongside Joe and Sinead has helped me progress in my career and learn new techniques. I feel privileged to be working within such an amazing dental practice and be part of the team.
Belmore dental team all work together to offer our patients the best quality of care. We work hard as a team to make our patents feel welcome and as relaxed as possible. Many patients are nervous and anxious about visiting the dentist, we hope our welcoming and friendly practice helps to ease those nerves and make your visit enjoyable.
