Laura took over the practice from her father Nick in 2008 having worked here since 2004. She qualified from Newcastle University in 2000 being one of only a handful to be awarded Honours – the highest possible grade. Laura was then selected for higher postgraduate training at Newcastle Dental Hospital leading to her achieving membership of the Royal College of Surgeons in 2003, thus joining a highly distinguished group of the profession.
Following this Laura worked in a specialist clinic for anxious and phobic patients and, in recognition of her skills and knowledge was awarded the Diploma in Sedation along with valuable skills in helping nervous patients overcome their fears.
Laura continues her commitment to professional development and achieved the Certificate in Restorative Dentistry from the prestigious Eastman Dental Institute. She has recently completed a year long course taught by Dr Michael Wise in London and continues to keep up to date with a quarterly study group.
Out of work Laura’s three sons, Liam, Dominic and Rowan, keep her very busy. She is also a keen amateur musician and plays the violin in orchestras and chamber groups. Laura lives in Boston Spa with her husband Michael and their sons.
