Hygienist

Karen was born and raised in Gloucester and started her career as a dental nurse in Cheltenham. She went on to study Dental Hygiene at The University of Bristol and gained her Diploma in Dental Hygiene in 2003. After qualification, she joined St.James Dental and has remained an integral member of the team ever since.

Karen is passionate about her work and brings a wealth of experience to the care that she provides. She particularly enjoys the challenge of encouraging and treating patients with advanced gum disease, dry mouth syndrome and sensitive teeth. She also has a keen interest in dental implant hygienist care and maintenance.

She has a lot of success in helping phobic patients overcome their fears during treatment, and her patients always leave the surgery with a smile on their face!

She is a keen member of the Gloucestershire Independent Hygienist and Therapist group, which provides postgraduate courses in Gloucestershire, and she was active in the initial committee that started the group.

Karen lives locally with her partner Richard and enjoys cycling and holidays in their caravan.
