Ruth graduated from the Aberdeen dental school (BDS) in 2015 after first completing a degree in Forensic science in 2010 from the university of Kent (BSc Hons).
Although originally from Essex she has worked and lived in many different areas across the UK.
After qualifying from dental school, she worked in general practice just outside Nottingham and then went on to work at the Royal London dental and teaching hospital in London, as an DCT ( Dental core training) gaining experience in a range of dental disciplines including special care dentistry, paediatrics, restorative, oral surgery and oral medicine.
Ruth continued to work within special care part time as a dental officer – treating patients with learning difficulties, anxious adults and children alongside working as an associate in a private practice in Essex.
Due to her own experiences in dental school and her desire to help dental students, Ruth was also a clinical lecturer for just over a year overseeing the dental emergency clinic at the Royal London dental hospital and teaching dental students on the clinic in how to manage dental emergencies.
Since qualifying Ruth has been intentional about gaining as much as experience as possible and enjoys all aspect of general dentistry with a particular interest in composite bonding and removal prosthodontics. Her patients interests are always at the core of what she does. Ruth regularly attends courses to keep up to date with the changes in dentistry.
Ruth has been a finalist in the best young dentist category at the prestigious dentistry awards in 2019 and 2020.
In her spare time Ruth can be found travelling and socialising with friends over great food and drink.
Although Ruth enjoys dentistry, she hopes to one day write a best-selling book!
