My name is Tanya. I studied at the University of Liverpool and qualified in 2014. After qualifying, I moved to Dorset and then I moved back home to the West Midlands where I have been working since!

I like all aspects of dentistry, and what I particularly enjoy about working in general dental practice is seeing the patient progress through their journey. I believe in having a holistic attitude towards oral health and strive to achieve this by working with my patients to educate and motivate them to achieve their oral health goals.

It gives me great pleasure learning about dentistry and participating in postgraduate course so I can continue to offer more to my patients.

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, reading and going for long country walks with my dog.
