Izzy qualified in 2016 from the University of Birmingham gaining both Honours and Clinical Distinction with her Degree. As our dental therapist here at Styvechale Dental Care, she is a valuable member of our team.
As well as doing all the work that a dental hygienist does, Izzy's role as a dental therapist means that she can also carry out some dental procedures that patients are more used to a dentist doing. She can do fillings, extract 'baby teeth', place pre-formed crowns on baby teeth and do treatments using all the materials a dentist would use. Like a dental hygienist, Izzy can also take dental x-rays (these are used to diagnose problems and decide on the possible treatment). She can also place fissue sealants, apply flouride varnishes and give fluoride treatments.
Izzy can also carry out tooth whitening under a prescription from your dentist.
Izzy works in our practice on a Tuesday, alternate Thursdays and a Friday. She particularly enjoys treating children and young adults. Both her and Sarah (one of our dental nurses) have been out to local nurseries and schools to educate the pupils on the importance of oral health.
In her spare time Izzy enjoys playing hockey, keeping fit and socialising with her friends and family.
