I am really excited to join Forge House Dental and be part of this welcoming, dedicated and patient centred team who have a strong emphasis on excellent care and commitment to high standards. Having always lived and worked in Kent, I feel this is the perfect opportunity to provide additional dental care due to the demand and expansion of the practice.

Joanne

Joanne

Joanne joined Forge House Dental in January 2016 as a part time receptionist.

After a long career as a Commercial Insurance Underwriter and then a seven year stint as a stay at home Mum looking after my two children, I was very lucky to be offered the opportunity of a part time career that would fit in with school hours. I very much enjoy reception work as I enjoy interacting with the patients and the admin side of the role appeals to my sense of organisation.

In my spare time I enjoy looking after my family, socialising with family and friends, eating out and going on spa days.
