The new appointments at a recently-opened dental practice in Ponteland are looking forward to getting stuck into their roles.
The Osborne Dental Group has recruited six experienced team members for its third dental care and well-being practice – Ponteland Dental.
Principal dentist Dr Onkar Dhanoya is celebrating 30 years since graduating from Newcastle Dental School at Newcastle University. He was recently awarded a Fellowship by The Royal College of Surgeons (London), which is the pinnacle of membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
Joining him are the six new starters with the business – associate dentists Dr Chris Hanford and Dr Katie Lawrence, therapist Jane Roddam, receptionists Vicki Cook and Deile Turnbull and nurse Sophie Elliott.
They are based at a fully refurbished 19th Century property at Bell Villas, where they will meet the dental needs of the Ponteland and Darras Hall-based patients who have previously travelled to Osborne Dental in Jesmond.
Dr Dhanoya said: “We’ve invested in the recruitment of a highly experienced and skilled dental team at Ponteland Dental and we know they’ll be an asset to our newest practice, which boasts the latest technology within a beautifully refurbished building.
“We’re delighted to have a permanent base for existing and new patients in the heart of Ponteland, with room for expansion. There has long been a significant demand for us to open a practice here and we’re gearing all efforts towards making our services easily accessible – from late opening to on-site parking.”
