Emma Poole

CQC Practice Manager

Before becoming a practice manager, I had been a dental nurse for 18 years working in corporate dentistry. I was then promoted and have been within practice management for the past 5 years.

Dentistry has allowed me to gain in depth knowledge on compliance and health & safety. I strive to ensure that any practice I work in is working toward the highest standard of care that we can achieve.

I started at McGrath Dental in 2018, I am currently practice managing two sites being responsible for the smooth running of the practices where patient care is paramount and providing support to my colleagues. I work collaboratively with our Business Development Manager and the wider Portman Dental Care team to ensure smooth practice operations and support colleagues, always keeping patient care at heart.

When I am not working, I enjoy family time with my fiance, our children and grandchildren.

Amanda Cass

Business Development Manager
GDC no. 218764

In 2010 I began my Dental Nursing career whilst studying at Liverpool Dental Hospital. I am always keen to expand on my dental knowledge, I have successfully gained two post qualifications; Oral Health Education and Dental Radiography.

Before joining McGrath Dental, I took a break from the dental world and supported healthcare students across the North West. I found this a very rewarding job, but knew that I would always return to dentistry.

I joined McGrath Dental in 2016 and progressed to a Treatment Coordinator role. I am now looking forward to the new challenges ahead as Business Development Manager; engaging with external stakeholders and helping to develop our referral process alongside supporting and developing our team.

Outside of work, my time is spent with my husband and son on adventurous family days out!

Aimee Le Poidevin

Lead Dental Nurse
GDC no. 154478

I have been a Dental Nurse for over 10 years now (wow that has gone fast!). Most of my career has been spent working within NHS dental practices. However, in 2016 I felt the need for a change and joined McGrath Dental. I am really enjoying my experiences here, particularly in implant surgery! I am currently studying for my post qualification in dental radiography.

In my spare time I enjoy making memories with my husband and three children. I also like going for runs and keeping fit.

Nicola Lennon

Treatment Coordinator / Registered Dental Nurse
GDC NO. 210495

In 2011 I qualified as a level 3 NVQ Dental Nurse at Wirral Metropolitan College. Furthering my dental education is important to me, since qualifying I have studied a post qualification in Dental Radiography and currently I am part qualified in sedation. I am hoping to further my knowledge and gain my full qualification in the near future.

I have specialised in Oral Surgery, working at a local practice for seven years, I find this area of work very interesting!

I joined McGrath Dental in February 2017 as a Treatment Coordinator/ Dental Nurse, I enjoy the challenges the role brings along with getting to know the patients and follow them through their treatment journey.

Outside the practice I enjoy spending time with my husband and little girl. We are all looking forward to welcoming our newest addition to the family in September 2019.

In 2009 I was ready for a career change and a family friend pointed me in the direction of working for Liam. I qualified in 2011 as a level 3 NVQ Dental Nurse at Wirral Metropolitan College, I have also taken on board a keen interest in expanding my role and responsibilities, particularly regarding dental implants.

Currently I am studying my first post qualification in Dental radiography. When not working, I am busy looking after my two children. If possible I like to go to the gym and socialise.

Rebecca McGarry

Dental Nurse
GDC NO. 281322

In 2018 I gained my NVQ level 3 in Dental Nursing at Wirral Metropolitan College. Before starting my dental career I gained a degree in Forensic Anthropology, I found the dental aspect of my degree very interesting which has led me to where I am now. Most recently I have completed additional Dental Implant training and for the future I aspire to become a Dentist!

I enjoy road trips out on my motorbike, and my favourite place to go is Llandudno via the scenic route!

Natasha Davies

Dental Nurse
GDC NO. 115165

I qualified as a dental nurse in 2007 and since then I have worked in both NHS and private practices. I took a break from dentistry for five years and worked within hospitality. I really enjoyed this time but I soon realised being a Dental nurse is my passion. I am hoping to further my dental knowledge and gain further qualifications to support my role in areas such as radiography and dental implants.

When I am not working I am a busy mum of two boys and together we enjoy the outdoor life making memories. Also when possible I enjoy going to the gym and socialising with friends and family.

I qualified as a dental nurse in 1989 and since then have worked in a combination of NHS and private dental practices. I have completed Business and Treatment Coordinating qualifications and I am currently the Lead nurse for the practice in addition to Treatment Coordinator. I am really enjoying the challenges within my role.

During my spare time I like to relax and escape to my caravan in North Wales with my family.

Tyler Calveley

Dental Nurse
GDC No. 281478

I have recently gained my Level 3 Dental Nursing qualification at Wirral Metropolitan College. I joined McGrath Dental in February 2018 and have really enjoyed all learning opportunities. I have already completed additional implant training since qualifying. I have aspired to become a Dental Assistant ever since I was a teenager; I just find all aspects of dentistry very interesting.

I am looking forward to furthering my skills and experiences and then may apply to study Dental Therapy at university.

In my spare time, I like to socialise with friends and family and I also love reading books and sports.

Kate Mitchell

Dental Nurse & Receptionist
GDC No. 124156

Before joining dentistry, I worked in administration. Following this, in 2005 I began my dental nursing career at Liverpool Dental Hospital. Since qualifying I have worked in a very busy private and NHS practice.

Although I am still a registered dental nurse, I have decided to change my career path and focus more on administration again. I have worked hard for my dental nursing qualification, therefore wouldn’t like to give it up completely.

I would have to say that my family (particularly my daughter Scarlett and son Jett) are my most prized possession; including our two dogs Harley and Skyla.

Jacqueline Barron

Receptionist

I have always had an interest in Dentistry, qualifying as a Dental Nurse in 1979.

Over the years I have worked within the Community Dental Service, at NHS practices and for the past 19 years in Private Dentistry.

I have particularly enjoyed my time spent assisting with implant dentistry both surgically and for the restorative phase where crowns and bridges are placed onto the dental implants .

For just over 12 months now I have taken a step back from my nursing duties and I am spending more time doing both Practice administration and reception work.

I am excited to have found a new position at McGrath Dental & Implant Clinic as a receptionist and I am hoping to bring my extensive knowledge to this new post.

When not working, I enjoy spending holidays in sunny climates and I have a large family including 7 grandchildren who keep my busy in my spare time!
