Receptionists and Dental Surgery Assistants

Some of our staff are full time and some are part time. Normally there will be two receptionists plus a dental surgery assistant for each dentist, at least one other carrying out other duties. Although we have employed hygienists in the past, our current dentists feel that we should do this work ourselves.


Ms Tracey Goodman is our receptionist and has been with the practice since 2004 - We currently have only one dedicated receptionist who works on a part time basis. Our nurses work in a rotation to also work on the reception.
