Each member of the team has a specific role to play in making you feel welcome and at home. Our nurses are present in the surgery to look after you and will be happy to provide advice on looking after your braces. Our receptionists will answer your questions and sort out your appointments. In fact, we are all happy to assist you with any questions that you may have.

Estelle has a Diploma in Business Management from Sydney Business School. She has worked in hospitality for much of her career, most recently as Head Waiter in a London restaurant. During the pandemic, she worked in the Test and Trace team and realised that she enjoyed healthcare so much she wanted to change career. We are fortunate that Estelle, whose first language is French, was recommended to us at just the time we were looking for a receptionist.
Keeping our patients and colleagues up to date on all things orthodontic is part of our mission as well as sharing news from the clinic and recipes that work for people in braces. Check out our blog for the latest news.
