I’m Janice, the Hygienist here at the Tooth Doctor. I graduated from Glasgow Dental Hospital with a Diploma in Dental Hygiene in 1996 and have over 30 years’ experience in dentistry, first establishing my career as a dental nurse in the Royal Air Force.
I have worked as a hygienist in general practice since I qualified, and I have been with the Tooth Doctor for 25 years. I absolutely love my job here as we have an amazing team and we are proud to welcome our lovely patients into a friendly and relaxed environment where they can enjoy first class dentistry in relaxing surroundings.
My passion is helping patients overcome their fear of dental treatment and to treat and prevent gum disease in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere so they can regain their confidence and keep their teeth and gums healthy for life.
“This place is unreal!!! I’ve just moved back from 7 years in New Zealand and I’m so glad I stumbled across this wee gem. I met with Janice and Lisa for my hygienist appointment and I couldn’t fault them at all. Such a pleasant experience and my teeth are absolutely glowing. Lin on reception is also a ray of sunshine and super approachable. Great wee afternoon to the dentist lol!”
I have been married to John for 25 years and we have a busy home life with our two teenage sons, Robbie and Sam who play a lot of football which thankfully I love.
I enjoy long country walks with our beautiful golden retriever Archie and to relax I love meditation and yoga. I love holiday retreats here in the countryside and visiting my niece who stays in the beautiful Greek island of Corfu.
“Just great all round really from reception staff being really friendly and welcoming my hygienist Janice, she makes me feel really comfortable and positive and is fab at her job, I feel encouraged by her and I’ve only met my actual dentist twice now and I feel really comfortable with him and confident. I’m so glad I plucked up the courage to finally do something about my teeth back in October after years and years of neglect and being embarrassed by them – I could go to a dentist closer to home – but as I’m so happy with the service in Carluke I’m more than happy to travel that wee bit further it’s a great practise and great team and I highly recommend. What a difference to my teeth, I would not even consider going anywhere else. I used to hate the dentist but not anymore.”
