Karla graduated from Newcastle University in 2003. She is currently our longest standing dentist since joining the team at Wallsend in 2007.
Not only does the practice and patients benefit from her years of experience, she also shares her vast knowledge with other dentists. Karla has mentored 2 overseas dentists by becoming a Northern Deanery and mydentist approved trainer and for 2 years she was the Clinical Support Manager for mydentist. This involved supporting over 40 dentists across the North East within the mydentist group.
Karla enjoys practice life and finds treating anxious patients and restoring people’s confidence in their smiles the most rewarding part of her job. This is what made her become qualified in providing short term orthodontics. She can straighten teeth with both the ‘quick straight teeth’ and ‘Invisalign’ system.
