The majority of her working career since 2007 has been spent by the sea in South Shields where she has been privileged to care for a varied list of patients, many of whom she now counts as friends.
Sarah has always loved braces and gets excited about straightening teeth. She has completed training with Six Month Smiles, Quick Straight Teeth, Invisalign and IAS academy.

Many of us have teeth which are crooked or worn, and alongside offering options to straighten teeth, she can also provide composite bonding, which can improve the shape of your teeth.

Sarah loves going on dental courses to broaden her skills and continue her professional development. Do ask her what she has lined up in her diary and she will very enthusiastically tell you all about it!
When she isn’t being a dentist, Sarah is busy caring for her family. She and her husband Ben have 3 kids; Joshua, Charis and Andrew who are all at school. She loves all crafts, gardening, Classical music, and cooking, and subjects the kids to most of these activities!
She looks forward to helping you care for your teeth!
