Over the years, working both in South Africa and the U.K., I have gained experience in a wide area of the dental field. From assisting in the surgery, reception, theatre, orthodontics, dental rep. to being a practice manager. I am now very happy and soley focused  in the Reception chair at Hythe Dental Care.

Part time nurse/receptionist

My name is Andrea Taylor and I have worked as a Dental Nurse for 11 years. I come from the small market town of Clitheroe in Lancashire. I have traveled extensively around the world, gaining citizenship in Australia and my first dental nursing experience was in Hong Kong. After getting married, my husband and I moved to picturesque Hythe, where we enjoy the beach, Military canal and countryside all on our doorstep.
