Amber Belgrave

GDC no.241162 University of Liverpool 2017
Combined Diploma in Dental Therapy & Hygiene


I qualified in 2017 at the University of Liverpool. I have worked as a dental nurse for 7 years at a variety of different practices. Since qualifying, my perception on dentistry and especially how we care for our patients at Wood Dental has changed. It's not just about fixing things, it's about the individual who wants to feel good and look good. As a hygienist I see many people who don't like to come to the dentist, but here at Wood Dental, thanks to the amazing team, I can really help patients overcome their fears. My role is not just to clean, but also to educate and motivate, empowering patients to want the best and have the best. Wood Dental is so forward thinking and so many new things are happening, I feel honoured to be a part of the team.
When I am not at work, I surround myself with all my family and friends. I love going to the cinema unless it's a horror film. I enjoy going swimming and even more a spa break. I have a dog called Lulu and me and my boyfriend love to go for walks with her, especially in the snow.
