Rebecca Campbell, Hygienist
Rebecca started on her journey down the dental path over fifteen years ago, having been bitten by the dental bug during transition year. She then completed a pre-dental nursing course and subsequently a dental nursing course in Trinity college Dublin.
‘Beckie’ worked as a dental nurse in a vast array of dental settings including general practice and specialist practices. She is dedicated to continuously studying and developing my skills and knowledge. So a natural progression for her was to train as a dental hygienist. She studied in Trinity and qualified with a distinction.
She loves how her role can equip people with the skills and knowledge to improve the overall oral health which in turn improves their overall wellbeing.
Outside of the surgery Beckie can be found pounding the canal walk ways with my dog ‘Lottie’. She is also passionate about horse riding but her next plan is to get some paddle boarding lessons!
