Lois is dental hygienist and therapist who helps Portmore patients in a range of ways including treating gum disease — the biggest cause of tooth loss — fillings, and paediatric procedures such as extractions.
Her favourite aspect of work at Portmore is the supportive team and she joined us straight after qualifying at the University of Birmingham with a BSc in Dental Hygiene and Therapy, following a BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Material Science.
Lois provides excellent periodontal care and routine restorative work to patients here, ensuring they keep their natural teeth for longer.
She believes in a holistic approach to dentistry, and gently encourages attention to preventative care. Lois is also qualified to provide teeth whitening procedures.
Lois’s professionalism means she is committed to expanding her professional knowledge by maintaining her continued professional development through reading publications and attending courses.
In her spare time, she enjoys keeping fit and trying new recipes in the kitchen.
