Meg has worked in dentistry for over 15 years, qualifying 6 years ago in Dental Hygiene and Therapy from King's College London. Previous to working as a hygienist and therapist, she was a specialist dental nurse and assistant practice manager.
Her priority has always been her patient's comfort and well-being and in treating patients holistically; with a preventative, gentle and minimally-invasive approach to dentistry. She has a particular interest in the systemic effects of periodontal disease as research has shown that oral hygiene is vital for general health.
Meg is a calm and empathic clinician with an ability to treat dental phobic patients, some of whom may not have attended a dental surgery in many years. She is a parent to a young (and very silly!) daughter and is confident working with children and helping them feel at ease in the dental environment.
As a hygienist, as most of you will know, she looks after patient's oral health from a gum care perspective. This ranges from a simple scale and polish appointments, airflow polishing and non-surgical periodontal therapy to treat gum disease. Treatment includes prevention advice, oral hygiene instruction, nutritional guidance, smoking cessation and oral malignancy screening. Being averse to a one-size-fits-all philosophy when it comes to advice she understands that every patient has a different lifestyle and preferences when it comes to a home care regime and will assist you in finding which dental products and methods work best for you.
In her spare time Meg is also a self-taught furniture restorer, amateur chef, lover of nature and camper van explorer.
She looks forward to looking after you at Abbey Road Dental.
