Emma Watkinson

Emma Watkinson

Dental Hygienist

GDC No: 6444 

Emma studied Dental Hygiene at the Liverpool University Dental Hospital and qualified in 2004. She started working as a dental hygienist at Rose Lane Dental Practice in the same year (she was a dental nurse here for 4 years prior to going to university).

Emma finds daily enjoyment and reward from being part of the dental health care profession, especially in such a relaxed and friendly practice. From her own experience at the dental practice she also believes that dental hygienists play a very important role in the overall dental health of all patients, particularly when monitoring them regularly and advising on their oral health. Working so closely with her patients gives Emma the opportunity to follow, improve and maintain patients gum health. The additional rewards for Emma are the added improvements in a patients appearance and confidence bought about by having a clean, fresh, and healthy mouth.

In her spare time she enjoys socializing, going to the gym, swimming and taking her dog, a Brussels Griffon, on long walks.
