Caroline is the Dental Hygienist and Therapist here at Levenshulme Dental & Cosmetics. She qualified from The Greater Manchester School for Dental Care Professionals in 2007. (Awarded by The Royal College of Surgeons of England)
You will find Caroline here every Thursday morning and 1 Saturday every month. Her aim is to encourage and educate all patients to have a healthy mouth and beautiful smile. Caroline works closely with the dentist to undertake a prescribed treatment plan and deliver this care to the patient. Together, the dentist and Caroline strive for an excellent standard of care by supporting each other with the patient at the forefront and included in all decisions. Carolines work is the foundation for building on any cosemtic treatments including dental implants and orthodontics.
Carolines role includes all aspects of gum care and maintenance, specialising in periodontal treatment (gum disease) She also is qualified to do fillings, taking of radiographs, fluoride treatments, impressions and fissure sealants.
Previously working as a paramedic in the Royal Air Force, Caroline gained many transferable skills. Her love of patient care led to the path of dentistry, where a more one on one approach and being able to build a trusting long lasting relationship suited her better. Her communication and motivational skills were recognised at university when I was awarded the ‘Oral B prize for patient motivation’
As a dental Therapist she will treat you holistically and not just focus on the oral treatment needed. Her treatment is tailored for you. Your pace, your individual needs met. Caroline excels with nervous patients, and along with the support from my nurse, dental phobic patients feel relaxed and at ease as trustful relationship is built.
In her spare time Caroline enjoys salsa dancing, attending lessons and social dances every week. Caroline is self-taught up to grade 4 on the piano and hopes to take the grade 5 examination in the next 12 months. My most recent hobby is flying a micro light and aim one day to take my pilots license.
