She enjoys all aspects of general dentistry, offering a full range of treatments including root canal, crowns, bridges, dentures, implants, surgical and cosmetic treatments and sedation. She particularly enjoys treating children, families and nervous patients.
Outside of work Deb enjoys family time with her husband and young son, travelling, good food and sport – until the birth of her son she still played waterpolo in the women’s Midland League. She also enjoys Pilates and is working towards Grade 4 piano after taking it up in recent years.
