Jenny B
Trainee Dental Nurse / Receptionist

I joined the team in 2016 as a trainee dental nurse. Although I have had previous dental nursing experience, I have spent many years working as a Healthcare Assistant in a medical practice.  Although I thoroughly enjoyed my previous role, I was ready to get back into dentistry. I am currently working towards my dental nursing diploma, and I hope to be fully qualified in 2018.

Trainee Dental Nurse / Receptionist

I joined the Priory Dental Care team in 2017. Having previously worked in administration roles, I felt I needed a new challenge. Dental Nursing has always interested me so I was delighted to be offered a trainee position at the practice.  I am thoroughly enjoying my new role and I hope to become a fully qualified dental nurse in 2019.

Lead Receptionist

I came to work at the practice in 1993 as a trainee dental nurse.  In my second year here, I started working towards the NEBDN National Certificate for Dental Surgery Assistants, and became a qualified dental nurse in 1996.  I have worked mainly as a receptionist since 2000, but I still nursed occasionally up until 2011.


Marie Giles, Cert. DPM
Practice Manager

I joined the practice in 1994 as a trainee dental nurse and receptionist, and became qualified in 1997 after passing the NEBDN National Certificate in Dental Nursing. I left the surgery in 2001 to become an accounts administrator. However, I was delighted to rejoin the team in 2008 as Practice Manager, and in 2010, I gained a Professional Diploma in Dental Practice Management. I am also the ‘Denplan Champion’ for the practice, which means I am the first point of call for anyone with a query about Denplan payment plans.
