Raquel is always looking for new ways to motivate her patients to help them look after their oral health when at home. She finds it really gratifying to give care to her patients in a calm, caring and supportive environment, and helping nervous patients feel comfortable in the dental chair.
Raquel started as a trainee Dental Nurse in 2005 and completed her nurse training. Then in 2009, she went off to Eastman Dental Hospital in London to study Dental Hygiene and Therapy and returned in her current role in 2012.
Being South African born, Raquel loves the outdoors and the sunshine, but she also likes the changing seasons we have here in England. She enjoys treating herself to some pampering and shopping when she has time. Her and her husband enjoy spoiling their young daughter and she’s a very proud mum. They also have three chickens and enjoy growing fruit and vegetables, a bit of ‘The Good Life!’
