Our hygienist/therapist

Claire Edwards

Dip Dental Hygiene and Therapy

GDC Reg 152187

What started out for Claire as a temporary job as a dental nurse during her gap year turned into a commitment to train as a dental hygienist/therapist. She graduated from the University of Sheffield with a Diploma in Dental Hygiene and Therapy in 2008.

As a hygienist/therapist, alongside skills in preventive dental health and treating gum disease, Claire is trained in aspects of restorative dentistry, providing composite fillings and restoring broken teeth. Further interests include dental aesthetics and tooth whitening. She is also experienced in working with dental phobic patients and patients with special care needs.

"I am delighted that the patients at Cottingham Dental Practice have welcomed me; everyone I’ve met has been very friendly. The team here is more like a work family, constantly supporting each other. I appreciate having longer appointment times in a private practice. This allows us to listen to patient needs and deliver a bespoke care plan without the worry of time pressure or meeting targets."

Claire enjoys learning to paint and she also spends time with her lovely cat Buttons. She has volunteered her time to become a vaccinator for the covid vaccination programme in Hull.
