Melanie has been an integral part of Finsbury Dental Care since May 1995 when she joined the team shortly after the practice opened. She qualified from Sheffield University in 1989 and her special interests are conservation and minor oral surgery. Melanie enjoys all aspects of general practice, putting a strong emphasis on prevention. When dental work is needed, she employs minimally-invasive techniques wherever possible. According to Melanie, “There is a real social element to the practice where, over the years, patients come to feel like friends. With regular visits and sharing dental knowledge, we can together keep their mouths healthy for the future”. Melanie has spent several years working in hospitals, developing her skills in minor oral surgery and continues to specialise part-time in this field. She would be your first port of call should you need an extraction or the removal of wisdom teeth, where you will be in safe hands.
