I started my career in dental nursing back in 1994, in a practice in my home town of Brentford. Since then I have worked in a number of NHS and private practices in Isleworth and Twickenham and through experience gained registration as a dental care professional.

It was also in 1994 when I met my partner, who worked in the shop next door to the dental practice. After years of savings and thanks to the recession we were finally able to get onto the property ladder, and are now finally settled.

I started working at the Whitehouse Dental Clinic back in March 2007 with Dr Jason Burns’s associate Dr Kostas Karras. Later In 2009 I began working alongside Dr Jason Burns and continue to do so. He has trained me in Implant Dentistry as well as all aspects of Smile Design and Rapid Adult orthodontics at our Richmond Clinic. I have learnt more in the last 3 years than the previous 14 put together! Its great to be part of such a well established dental clinic and I love working with someone who is as much as a perfectionist as me!

In my spare time I enjoy socialising with friends and family, going on lots of holidays and generally just enjoying life!

I started my career as a trainee dental nurse in December 2008, in a busy, mixed NHS /private practice. I qualified and was registered and rewarded a National Certificate in Dental Nursing in December 2011. I continued to gain experience from alongside a variety of dental practitioners.

In November 2014 I joined the team at Whitehouse Dental Clinic. I am enjoying being part of a team, that ensures our patients are provided with a high standard of care and the attention they deserve.
My favourite part of the job is when patients, who have previously been anxious about their treatment become relaxed about their visit and no longer have to worry. It is rewarding for me to see a patient leaving happy, having found a new confidence and the ability to smile again.

Both Dr Jason Burns and Dr. Karagiannopoulous are highly skilled dentists and passionate about their work. I recently extended my qualification in June, when I was awarded a Certificate in Dental Radiography, and it was under their supervision that I was able to take radiographs and finish my portfolio.

I have one daughter, Evelyn, and in my free time I like to travel and read.
