Brampton Team News
We wanted to let you know of some team news – successes, leavers and joiners:
Liz Muston – Dental Hygienist
Sadly, after many years as one of the hygienist team, Liz Muston has decided it is time to hang up her scaling tool to concentrate on other interests. Liz will leave on 31st July.
“After 35 years working within the Dental profession, the last 20 of which has been with Mark, either here in Brampton or previously in St Neots, I have decided to retire from Dentistry so I can expand my Gardening Business, which I have been lucky enough to run alongside my role as a Dental Hygienist for many years now”.
“I would like to thank all my lovely patients I have seen over the years, along with the whole team at Brampton for making the last 20 years such a huge and enjoyable part of my career”.
We all wish Liz the best for her future and will miss her very much.
Grace Higgins – Dental Nurse
Grace will be leaving us in early September as she has got a place at University to do the Dental Hygienist Course. The course will take a couple of years and, who knows, Grace may well return to the practice at some point in the future as a fully qualified hygienist.
Grace joined us in October 2021 fairly early in her career as a qualified dental nurse. Since being with us she has increased her knowledge and experience within many different areas of dentistry including working with our implant and perio specialist and is at the point of completing her IV sedation portfolio coursework to gain the qualification.
We wish Grace all the best wishes and good luck for her future adventures away from the practice.
Sophie Kitchener – Dental Hygienist
With Liz leaving, we had a real search on our hands to find the right person to come and join our team. Eventually, we found Sophie.
We are looking forward to welcoming Sophie joining the team in mid-September as our new Hygienist working on Monday’s and Tuesday mornings.
When not attending to patients’ teeth, Sophie is a keen musician who enjoys performing at local establishments and events and also a keen foodie who loves trying new foods and finding new restaurants to visit. Any time left after music and food, you’ll find Sophie spending time with family and friends and being sociable.
Beca Young – Dental Nurse
Beca has been part of the team here for just over 8 years and since returning from maternity leave in January has taken back the role of managing the implant and perio cases for our specialist, Fahd Saleh as well as regular dental nursing at the practice.
Prior to returning to work, whilst still on maternity leave, Beca undertook and passed the first part of the course to qualify to become an IV Sedation Nurse. Following the 2-day course, Beca has worked really hard to complete her portfolio of 20 cases of IV sedation required within 12 months to gain the qualification. We are hugely pleased to let everyone know that Beca has passed this second part of the IV Sedation Course and is now fully qualified.
The practice can now offer in-house sedation and if you’re a nervous patient who may benefit from this treatment, please contact our reception team to enquire how this might help you.
