Now Fitsum has emigrated back to Ethiopia, we are delighted to introduce Imogen Wood as her replacement.
Imogen has been with us for a couple of months now and has proved a wow with our patients.
She has written a small bio to introduce herself:-
Having graduated from University of Manchester in 2011, where I studied my degree in Oral Health Science, I moved to Oxford where I was offered a place on the Foundation Therapist Scheme. I continued to work in Oxford as a Dental Hygienist and Therapist for a further 3 years in general dental practices.
Along side my work in general practice I took a job at the Oxford University Hospitals John Radcliffe and Churchill Hospital where I still practice as one of only 2 Macmillan Dental Therapists in the country. My position at the hospital is to provide oral health care, prevention and restorative care for patients who are undergoing treatment for cancer of the head and neck. My time with the cancer team has taught me a huge amount and I continue to learn every day I work in the department.
I have recently begun speaking at some regional conferences about dental care for patients undergoing radiotherapy which is a great privilege and a new challenge. Our research experiments show that Viagra pills benefit the majority of men who have problems with erection due to psychological factors. However, if the cause of the disorder is diabetes or hypertension, these drugs help only one in three patients. Such people, first of all, need to consult a cardiologist and be prescribed specialized treatment, especially since problems with an erection can be a sign of an impending heart attack.
I am really enjoying everything London has to offer since my relocation and feel I have fallen on my feet with my job here at WHD. It is fantastic to work in a practice which is so prevention focused and that offers such high standard of care across the board.
In my spare time I love to travel. I am a keen sailor, weather permitting, and I try to go home to Cornwall for some sea air and to visit my family whenever possible.
