Members of staff at Bute Dental Surgery have a clutch of new qualifications to show for their efforts over recent months.

Practice manager Liz Officer graduated in September with a Personal Development Award (PDA) in dental practice management, while Nicola Wilson graduated with a National Diploma in Dental Nursing in June, and is now a qualified dental nurse.

The practice has also been joined in recent months by Kelly Mackay, who will begin her dental nurse training next month, and by dentist Kirsty MacLarty, for whom Bute is her first job as a fully-fledged dentist after she qualified from Glasgow University last year.

The practice also has a dedicated Child Smile nurse, Nicole McGregor, whose work includes giving oral health information in areas such as weaning, tooth brushing, diet and nutrition in addition to regular check-ups for children, and offers domiciliary visits for those who are elderly, housebound or otherwise find it hard to attend the surgery in person.
