"I joined Denplan in 2021 following a successful career in advertising & marketing with some of Northern Ireland’s leading Publishing & Exhibition Houses and most recently with a leading Manufacturing Company. Joining Denplan has been a real learning curve for me and Dental itself is such an evolving landscape. I am thoroughly enjoying the consistent education with Denplan which is truly helping me to further my knowledge in dentistry. I have a true passion for developing and growing business relationships and love to work closely with members as we move forward together to achieve their ambitions for their practice. In my spare time I love to spend quality time with my gorgeous son and husband, outside of that I’m a regular at the gym and love a good glass of wine or a few cocktails. I really look forward to supporting you and your Practice with Denplan."
