We’ve got another new face around the practice.
We’d like to introduce you to our new dental therapist Cass!
A dental therapist is a member of the dental team who provides preventative and restorative dental care, including hygiene appointments.
Cass graduated from the University of Birm in 2012 with a Bsc degree in Dental Therapy. Following this, she completed an additional vocational training year to cement her skills in general dental practice. Cass has worked across the midlands in various healthcare settings.
Cass uses a combination of skills gained thus far to manage and treat anxious patients in an empathetic manner.
Some of the duties performed by Cassandra include:
oral health assessments, dental xrays, administration of local anaesthesia, gum treatments and cleaning of tooth surfaces, preparation and restoration of decayed or broken teeth, pulpal therapies, extraction of baby teeth and preventive therapies such as fissure sealants and fluoride application. Dental health education and promotion also play a large part of her role.
Outside of work Cass loves spending time with friends and family in Birmingham and Liverpool, escaping the city when possible, and the occasional gin fizz !
She looks forward to welcoming you! And a big welcome to her too!
