Holly Began her dentistry career in 2010 and qualified as a dental nurse in 2012.
Since then, Holly has continued her training in many fields and has qualifications in oral health education, sedation nursing and many more.
She is very excited to be a part of an exceptional practice and work with such a talented team.
Holly has worked in many roles within dentistry, being senior nurse for over 6 years and now lending her skills to her new role as Deputy manager. Alongside being deputy manager holly still works full time as a dental nurse and runs her own oral health education clinic. Holly feels very passionate about Oral health and feels this should be the foundation of any dental treatment plan. Working alongside the clinicians and Hygienist means the patient gets exceptional service from each team member using their knowledge and skills.
“It’s so important for this service to be available for all patients, meaning they receive the highest of standards and care throughout their journey at the practice”.
Holly Loves to educate and from her many years of experience she has mentored over 10 nurses throughout her career, who have gone on to start careers in hygiene therapy and orthodontic therapy.
“Mentoring and training takes a lot of hard work, time and patience but the reward of watching new team members grow within the profession is reward enough”.
Other areas within dentistry Holly enjoys is oral surgery and sedation.
Holly is very caring and empathetic, making patients feel calm and relaxed comes naturally. This works hand in hand with sedation, the key is to make the patient feel at ease even before they are sedated.
Holly has introduced some processes within the practice that help towards Smiles by Gurms becoming more sustainable and eco-friendlier. It’s only the start and she has many more ideas that she hopes to bring in soon
Alongside dentistry, Holly has organised a charity skydive, tough Mudder event, bake sales (Sugar free!) and oral health education stalls within the community.
