“Visited today for hygienist appointment. Friendly welcome as soon as you open the door by Barbara. Kirsty and Irene put me at ease and were very helpful.
Out of the working week Kirsty is a keen hill walker, reader and enjoys running. She spends her down time walking with her husband and Bernese Mountain Dog, Monty. She has a cat, Binka, who enjoys it when Kirsty cuddles up on the sofa to read.
Another of Kirsty’s hobbies is baking. Please do not be fooled by the career in dentistry, she loves sweet treats. Combined with a love of travelling and exploring, she also enjoys experiencing different cultures and foods.
Kirsty has recently signed up to Pilates classes which helps with her posture for carrying out her job as a dental therapist.
“Wow! I had my first appointment yesterday with Kirsty and Irene, for a scale and polish.
This procedure in the past has been an absolute nightmare for me, I always needed to be numbed for this and still it would be agony because of severe sensitivity all over.
I’m totally shocked that they got round my whole mouth without me jumping out their seat at any point! Not one injection NEEDED for this and NO pain at all!
Thank you Kirsty & Irene, brilliant job”
