Biography

Hannah joined Park Orthodontics in 2018, bringing a wealth of valuable dental experience with her after working in a peripatetic role in both community and hospital settings around Lanarkshire in the Public Dental Service.

This role involved assisting in treating various patients whose health and social needs required special oral health provisions. She gained experience assisting in caring for vulnerable/anxious children, special needs children and adults and helped to provide essential care in the palliative care department.

Hannah obtained The NHS Education for Scotland Professional Development Award in dental nursing in 2018.

Hannah says that she knew early in her dental career that she wanted to progress in the orthodontic field due to a hospital placement where patients with the most complex orthodontic needs were referred for orthodontic treatment.

Hannah was thrilled to be involved in assisting with orthognathic surgery, and this awakened a strong interest in orthodontics.

Hannah has been part of the Park Orthodontics team since February 2018. Due to her genuine passion for the practice, team, and patients, as well as her desire to continually learn, she has progressed from being a newly qualified dental nurse working alongside all our clinicians to becoming a qualified dental radiographer and an experienced treatment coordinator, to being the Park Orthodontics practice support manager.

Whilst working at Park Orthodontics, Hannah has furthered her dental knowledge and has gained the dental radiography (Operator) qualification for dental care professionals awarded by the Scottish Qualifications Authority.

This qualification means that she can routinely take the required x-rays under the prescription of a dentist for patients before and after their treatment.

Hannah has also completed many hours of continual professional development training, which has helped her to conduct her role as Practice Support Manager confidently.

Hannah is an exceptionally caring and friendly team member who loves to support patients who are incredibly nervous in any way she can!

From hand-holding and reassuring patients before they start treatment to answer any questions they may have about their treatment.

Hannah loves being able to help patients who are worried about meeting treatment costs by finding a suitable and cost-effective package to suit them!

Hannah also supports other team members in the clinic and reception, helping nurses and receptionists complete their day-to-day tasks.

Supporting the team involves helping develop team members’ current skills and ensuring they are happy in their job roles. Hannah says that the most satisfying part of her role is working with such a talented team and says that her colleagues feel as close as family members.

Outside work, Hannah enjoys walking her dog, Jax, her beautiful German shepherd, and she likes supporting and watching her partner play football.
