Amanda Cass, Practice Manager

Amanda Cass

Practice 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 then became Business Development Manager; engaging with external stakeholders and helping to develop our referral process alongside supporting and developing our team. I am now looking forward to the new challenges ahead as Practice Manager.

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

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.

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.

Dental Nurse

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 have experienced so much in the last 11 months working here at McGrath and cannot wait to see what the future holds.

Outside of work I enjoy being busy with my two children Daisy & Freddie and also socialising with my family and friends.

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 have recently progressed to a treatment coordinator role and I find this job very rewarding.

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