Say hello to Ellie, our dental nurse extraordinaire! Five years ago, Ellie wouldn't have imagined that she'd become a qualified implant and dental nurse. But life is full of surprises, and Ellie joined our team at the start of 2018, eager for a fresh new challenge. Before venturing into the world of dentistry, Ellie worked in childcare at a local nursery. But when a position opened up on our reception front desk, Ellie thought, "Why not?" She quickly learned the ropes and everything there was to know about the front desk. But the practical hands-on side of working at Thorpe Lea intrigued her, and within less than a year, Ellie wanted to find out what it was like working in the dental surgery. With half of her working week spent in surgery and the other half on reception, Ellie discovered her true passion lay in the clinical environment.
In early 2020, she passed her dental nurse exam with flying colours, and she has become a pro at balancing clinical, hands-on work with her patient-facing role. You'll often see Ellie on the phone, explaining treatment options to our patients, scheduling appointments, and managing the appointment diary. Having gained a wealth of dental knowledge from working in the dental surgery, Ellie is now super-equipped to help support our patients with decisions about their dental care. She loves a challenge and thrives on those busy days where she's rarely at her desk. Instead, you might catch her in the surgery, assisting the dentist, or helping out on reception. She's always willing to go the extra mile and is never one to shy away from a challenge.
He explains everything to me and checks at every stage of the dental surgery that I 'm ok. I feel relaxed with him and I know that it’s worth every penny.
