Dentist and practice owner
It seems like just yesterday that I was setting up Belhaven Dental Surgery as a one woman show in 2005! I am extremely proud of where we are now, what we have achieved and how we have grown since then.
We continually aim to grow as a team, to provide a happy, friendly, relaxed atmosphere for our patients and to provide the best possible care and treatment. Our aim as a practice is to make everyone feel welcome and make dental treatment a pleasant experience.
I am very fortunate to have a highly trained group of staff who share my vision to provide high quality care whilst treating patients with respect at all times. We also like to have fun at our practice and many patients comment that they feel very relaxed at our practice.
Now that we have become well established in Port Glasgow, one aspect of my job that gives me great satisfaction is seeing familiar faces and getting to know and be part of families lives.
One of my areas of particular interest is the Short Term Cosmetic Teeth Straightening. This uses systems like Invisalign (clear aligners) or Quick Straight Teeth (fixed tooth coloured braces) to straighten front teeth in a short period of time for adults. We have had amazing success with this and many adults who thought they could never have straight teeth are now delighted with their smile. It is definitely one of my favourite treatments as I love seeing how happy people become with their smile in a short period of time (usually around 6 months wearing braces).
We have an active commitment to charity and have an annual commitment to help provide financial assistance to Port Glasgow Juniors Football club to provide football strips for the children and have also recently decided to support the Riverside Youth Band.
