Dental Hygienist Rebecca Turner

Hygienist Rebecca Turner

I have worked in dentistry since 2006 first as a dental nurse before deciding to take my career further to become a dental hygienist & therapist. I qualified from Kings College Hospital in 2012, joining David and his team the same year. I have a real passion for my job and love to educate patients on how to improve their oral health and I feel a sense of achievement when I see the patients put these changes in place.

I’m also a trained manual micro-pigmentation therapist (microblading) and enjoy the confidence I give my clients from such treatments.

In my free time I am very into my fitness and spend a lot of time in the gym. I am also a keen horse rider.

I’m an enthusiastic, caring and friendly individual who wants to provide patients with better oral health care and give them useful advice to improve their oral health further.
