Ruth has been part of the practice since its inception in late October 1983, initially as a Trainee Dental Nurse. Since then she has watched the practice grow from strength to strength into what it is today and is now the Practice Manager.
In that time, she gained her National Certificate for Dental Nurses Qualification in 1986, her Certificate in Oral Health Education in March 2000 and most recently her Certificate in Dental Radiography in 2007. Over the years Ruth has seen many changes both with personnel and ownership but has maintained the high level of service and endeavours to ensure the Practice continually provides the highest quality of service possible. Ruth also ensures that the practice remains compliant at all times.
In her spare time, she loves to play the flute, go walking with her Kerry Blue’s, Esme & Dylan as well as spending time with her extended family
