Mrs Karen Mitchell
Karen started out as a dental nurse in 1972 and she worked in London until she got married and then took time out to raise her family in 1978. She then went back to work in 1995 in Maidstone. Karen started at Shepway Dental Practice in 2004 (the old name for Kent Smile Studio), and has been with us since. She is registered as a Dental Nurse with the General Dental Council but mainly is to be found on the reception desk!
Miss Ashleigh Pearson - Receptionist
Ashleigh joined Kent Smile Studio in March 2017 and started receiving her training to become a qualified dental nurse and is due to qualify in July 2018.
Precious to joining the team at Kent Smile Studio, she had experience working in a variety of health & social care settings and this was mainly due to her health studies at Canterbury Christ Church University. She has worked in hospitals, care homes, hospices and community settings. Dentistry was an area which she had never explored before but had always been interested in.
When she joined the team, she immediately fell in love with her new role and realised she could utilise a lot of the skills that she had acquired previously. What she loves most about her job is being able to interact with patients and put them at ease during dental treatment and supporting them through their journey in achieving the smile they have always wanted!
Once she qualifies she, would like to explore further post-grad courses
In her spare time she likes to spend time with friends and family, Volunteer work, travelling & looking after her two little dogs Lola & Bo.
