Karen is a lovely, warm and helpful team member who is an asset to the Smile Essential family. Karen's enthusiasm makes her very popular with the patients. This has helped her to develop a good rapport with them and helps them to feel calm and at ease during their visit. She uses this as a motivation, by seeing the difference we make in people's lives following treatment.
Karen's aim as an Oral Health Educator is not only to educate patients on how to keep their mouths healthy but also advising on how to keep them that way.
Outside work Karen loves spending time with her family and her pet dog. They often go away together in their caravans, where they enjoy sitting outside, having a beer and a barbeque. She also enjoys going to the gym and socialising with friends.
