BA Hons, PGCE  

Practice Manager

Laura is our Practice Manager. In 2002 she qualified with a BA Hons in Graphic Design. After several years working in the fashion industry she went on to work as a dental receptionist where her responsibilities included arranging appointments and handling patient enquiries. Working in this busy environment developed her knowledge and understanding of dental treatments and also how to multi-task – a vital skill in a busy practice.

She then obtained her Post Graduate Certificate of Education and worked as a primary school teacher teaching children from age five through to eight. Although she loved the job, and it was very rewarding, Laura decided after a few years that it was time to try something new so she took her Certificate in Principles of Business & Administration and then joined us at The Implant Experts. She came to us because, as she says ‘I love learning and I was excited by the prospect of learning about oral surgery and dental implants. It is a fascinating procedure, which clearly provides such positive results for patients.’

In her spare time, Laura enjoys baking, exercising, reading tear-jerkers and spending time with friends and family.
