NEBDN Certificate in Dental Nursing, NEBDN Certificate in Conscious Sedation, NEBDN Certificate in Radiography

Leanne qualified as a dental nurse in 1997 and joined Queensway Dental Clinic in 1998. Since then, she has gained qualifications in Dental Nurse Sedation and Dental Radiography and has worked in a number of different areas within Queensway Dental Clinic gaining lots of experience and knowledge of the services we provide.

Leanne’s role as Clinical Patient Coordinator involves being the first point of call for patients wishing to discuss treatment options available, before seeing a dentist or orthodontist. Another important part of the role is guiding patients through treatment plans and organising finance options. She works closely with the dentist and orthodontist to give patients the best dental experience from the outset to completion of treatment. Outside of work, Leanne enjoys cooking, running and going to ‘Boot Camp’ classes as well as spending time with her children, Declan and Megan and husband Paul.

If you are unsure of which dental treatment would be best for you and would like a free, no-obligation chat about options before you see the dentist or orthodontist, please call Leanne on 01642 554667 to make an appointment.
