Meet The Team

Dr Jill Stevenson BDS (Glasgow) 2006, DipFMS

GDC No: 103173

“Nothing is more rewarding than transforming not only a person’s smile, but their whole outlook on life.  Sometimes the smallest changes produce the greatest results.”

“I am delighted and privileged to lead a hardworking and dedicated team.  Our number one priority has always been to value each and every one of our patients in a friendly environment. A graduate of Glasgow University in 2006 with Commendation, I’ve spent 10 years building my experience in NHS and Private practice. That includes completing several postgraduate courses in cosmetic dentistry, short term orthodontics for adults and implant placement. 

I believe that not only should a person have a healthy smile but also a beautiful smile, so I have a keen interest in restorative and cosmetic treatments. With advances in dentistry, this is evermore achievable. On-going education and keeping up to date with the latest developments ensures that I can continue to deliver the highest standard of dentistry to all my patients. It’s also extremely important to me personally and maintains my passion for the job. I love to travel and try to indulge as often as I can. I also enjoy keeping fit and have ran several marathons.”

Dr Ossie Bruce BDS (QUB) 1983

GDC No: 57800

“I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry especially preventative care.” 

“I graduated from Queens University in 1983 and started my dental career as a Resident House Officer in the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast. I then moved to general practice in Bangor, Co. Down before taking over as the principal Dentist here in 1989. After 27 years at the helm, I sold the practice to Jill and now continue to work as an associate 3 days a week. I am married with two children and am a keen photographer. Many of my images can be seen around the Practice.” 

Orla McAnulty Dip Dental Hygiene (2006)

GDC No: 103633

“It’s so satisfying and rewarding to transform people’s smiles and help them to maintain healthy teeth.”

“I qualified as a dental nurse in 1998 and after working in practice, I went back to train as a Hygienist.  I love helping to transform peoples’ smiles and get great satisfaction in helping all my patients achieve a high standard of oral health. In my spare time I enjoy swimming and spending time with my friends and family."

Alison Franc Dip Dental Hygiene & Therapy 2014

GDC No: 138116

"I love helping people achieve healthy mouths whilst overcoming their dental anxieties"

 

"I have worked in Dentistry since 2003, firstly as a nurse and then retraining as a Hygienist/Therapist qualifying in 2014.  The best part of my role is in helping people to overcome their worries and anxieties in the dental setting and helping them to achieve a high standard of oral health.  In my spare time I enjoy singing, going to the theatre and spending time with friends and family".

Lorraine Minnis Senior Receptionist

GDC No: 163889

“It’s a great feeling knowing that we provide a service that is appreciated by all our patients.”

“The longest serving member of the nursing team, I joined Dental Care Dundonald in 1990 as a trainee dental nurse. Now I love being part of the reception team and seeing our patients grow more confident with each visit. Seeing them leave happy and satisfied is the best part of my job. When I’m not at work, I’m either on the side lines of a football pitch cheering my son on, spending quality time with my daughter or walking my dogs.”

Nicky Patterson Dental Nurse

GDC No: 257135

“I enjoy helping patients – particularly the most nervous ones – and I’m good at putting them at ease.” 

“I’ve been a dental nurse for 3 years and I love the fact that no two days are the same.  I enjoy the interaction I have with all the patients - especially the very nervous ones. Plus, I’m continually learning new skills, which makes my job more interesting. Right now, I’m looking forward to undertaking an implant nursing course. I’m a Game of Thrones fan and when I get the chance, I love going to concerts and festivals (weather permitting!).”

Lynn McIntyre Receptionist

GDC No:

“Working with people is always something I’ve enjoyed and been passionate about.”

“Before joining our reception team in 2000, I worked in a local hotel as a welcome host. Working with people, helping them and answering their questions are things I’ve always enjoyed and been passionate about.  Having worked in the practice for so many years now, my favourite thing is seeing our patients’ progress from children to adults. We’re setting them up for life with happy, healthy smiles. There’s a really strong team ethos here – it’s so enjoyable to work alongside them all, knowing that we’re giving our patients the best possible care. In my spare time, I love baking with my children but I don’t think Mary Berry has anything to worry about just yet!”  

Lauren Humphries Receptionist

GDC No:

“I love making patients feel at ease with a friendly smile and kind words.”

“I joined the practice in 2007 after having worked in retail. Meeting and interacting with people is something that I’ve always loved to do, which means I also love my job.  I love the variety that each day brings and, as the first point of contact for many patients, I know that a friendly smile and a kind word is sometimes all that’s needed to get them past their initial nerves. Outside of work, I have a passion for interior design and enjoy spending time with my young family.”

Hannah Carinduff Trainee Dental Nurse

GDC No:

“I’ve always had an interest in dental nursing and love seeing how people’s smiles can be transformed by the simplest treatments.”

“I started dental nursing in 2016 and I am currently working towards my National Diploma in Dental Nursing.  I'm amazed how dental treatment, no matter how simple, can improve a person's confidence and outlook on life.  Its great to be involved in that transformation.  In my spare time I enjoy glamping, shopping and binge watching Netflix shows! ”
