Suzanne joined our team early in 2013 with 13 years experience in dental nursing. She has quickly become an invaluable member of the team and is enjoying the hustle and bustle of our busy practice. She's a very fast learner and up for new challenges both at work and leisure- we've seen the videos of her bungee jump and sky dives to prove it !
In her spare time Suzanne enjoys socialising with friends and is a keen traveller. Her other favourite role is that of doting aunty. With her fun-loving upbeat nature, she's the perfect 'co-pilot' for Laura!

Our first encounter with Kate was on a work placement with us while she trained as a dental nurse. On qualifying she worked in a private dental practice in Belfast and in a specialist orthodontic practice. As well as her dental nursing Kate is also qualified in dental radiography and recently undertook further training to enable her to take dental impressions and undertake an "extended scope of practice" role within our team . Kate is a very busy bee,spending much of her time assisting Karen and Ed chairside but she also can man the desk and is never idle.
Having grown up in Scotland, Kate now lives locally . In her spare time she's a shopper and a proper cat lover in contrast to all the dog lovers we have on the premises.

Lynne is also a qualified dental nurse who works with us on a part time basis. She is usually found working alongside our hygienists, but can step into a reception role as the need arises making her a very versatile team member. Her attention to detail in everything she does is legendary.
In her days off she spends time with her husband Neil and young daughter Naomi.

Rachel joined the practice in June 2014 as a newly wed. She has six years experience as a dental nurse and in the first six months since joining our team she’s been busy! As well as working alongside Laura day to day, Rachel has taken course in dental photography and impression taking and in December she qualified in dental radiography which is pretty good going! All these skills are put to good use here as we embrace the modern ethos of team dentistry.
Hardworking and fun-loving Rachel is enjoying the diversity she has in her job and the craic as well as the serious side of our work. Rachel is from Broughshane but now lives in Ballymena sharing her home with husband Scott and her collection of over seventy stuffed elephants.

Esther joined the practice in September ’14 and took no time in settling in. She is from a farming family in Lurgan and with a houseful of siblings so it's no surprise that she is so chatty and personable. Esther has over five years experience in dental nursing and we were delighted to have a position to offer her when she moved to the Ballymena district following her marriage to David last summer.
Since joining the team she has had experience working alongside most of the clinical team and a more obliging sunny natured assistant would be hard to find. Esther also fulfils a key role in operating our decontamination room where all our instruments are sterlised to the highest standard for our patient safety.
