More of the team!
Dental Nurse & HydraFacialist
GDC No. 297637
I qualified as a GDC registered dental nurse in 2021, and joined Orchard House Dental Care wanting to progress in Facial Aesthetics as well as Dental Nursing.
I have recently completed Hydrafacial training and have carried out a number of Treatments. My development plan is to train to offer micro needling also.
In my spare time, I like to detail my car, work at 111 and go to the gym.
Trainee Dental Nurse
Having worked in retail for 10 years I was more than ready for a career change!
I have always enjoyed working with people so I was over the moon to be given the opportunity to join the team here at Orchard House.
I am really enjoying my time here so far and I have learnt so much. I feel like I have been welcomed to the team and every day I am continuing to learn new things.
I am a busy mum of three so at the weekends I spend time with my children and my little sausage dog.
Dr. David. M. Banks
GDC Number 209602
Dentist, Six Month Smiles & Facial Aesthetics Practitioner
David completed his first degree in Engineering and was originally a Power Station Operations & Maintenance Engineer.
He then re-trained for a degree in Dentistry from Liverpool University and has completed clinical training at the Queen Victoria Hospital in Morecambe, and Oral Surgery & Orthodontic placements at Lancaster Royal Infirmary.
At Blackpool and Morecambe Dental Access Centres, for many years he provided Emergency Dental Care sessions, for those who could not access or did not have a regular dentist.
David provides Six Month Smiles short term Adult Braces and Clear Aligners, Composite Bonding, Mini Smile Makeover and Enlighten teeth whitening. He has also completed advanced Facial Aesthetics training to provide Toxin injections, dermal fillers, plasma-filler and iPRF.
Toxin is a very effective treatment for teeth clenching/jaw pain/TMJD and 'Gummy' Smiles. Dermal/plasma fillers can be used effectively to support the peri-oral area and reshape lips/ lip lines without them looking un-natural.
David’s hobbies include Gardening & Sport. He has recently 'caught' the fishing bug and goes whenever he can, although at the moment is still a fair weather fisherman!
GDC No. 297164
Orchard House is the first Dental Practice I have worked at and it is where I became qualified as a Dental Nurse.
OHDC is an amazing environment to learn and grow as a nurse. As a result, it has further fuelled my passion to progress in the dental industry. While working part time here, I am now studying to become a dental hygienist at University. I am loving my Degree Course and everyday I learn something new that can further help me in my role as a Dental Nurse.
Between lectures and nursing there is very little free time for hobbies. However when I can I love to spend time in the gym and looking after my animals on the farm.
