Holding our team together is Eleanor. She gained her BSc in Management with Entrepreneurship and MSc in Digital Marketing from Southampton University and moved straight into business development and marketing. After working in product sales for a time she made the move to dentistry in order to spend more time with ‘customers’. She moved swiftly through the ranks, achieving the position of assistant practice manager of a prestigious implant referral practice in less than 3 years despite having little knowledge of dentistry prior to the position.
Eleanor spent the last few years advancing her knowledge in implant dentistry and dental prosthesis work. Eleanor has attended numerous workshops and seminars on implants; forensic dentistry; dental practice management and marketing; viewing live surgery and even working part-time in a dental laboratory to better understand how the teeth are made!
She has helped to grow an award-winning private dental implant practice, and an award-winning dental laboratory both of which, despite the Covid pandemic are still going strong which is a testament to her leadership skills. She has passed multiple CQC inspections and recently made the decision to step away from the day-to-day running of the practice and laboratory and instead focus on the business development of both.
Eleanor is currently a judge for the prestigious Private Dentistry Awards held by FMC which judges dental practices and their teams across the UK
