  • Extensive tooth decay, with a strong emphasis on preventive dentistry

  • Dental developmental defects eg. fused teeth, hypomineralised (insufficient mineral) enamel, hypoplastic teeth (lack of thickness of enamel), amelogenesis imperfecta and dentinogenesis imperfecta
  • Missing teeth (hypodontia)
  • Anxiety/nervousness using good behavioural management techniques, nitrous oxide inhalation sedation or general anaesthesia
  • Learning difficulties such as Global Development Delay, ADHD and autism
  • Medical conditions which require special consideration for their dental care
She enjoys all aspects of Paediatric Dentistry but in particular, managing dental trauma on children, which forms nearly half of all her referred cases.
