Dental Therapists

Nicola Domonique BSc

Dental Therapist GCD no: 142073

I was a dental nurse for 12 years before taking the decision to train as a Hygiene Therapist.
I studied at Manchester Dental school and gained my degree in 2012. Since then, I’ve worked in and around Leeds in both Private and NHS practice. For many years I worked alongside a paediatric specialist so have gained great experience working with anxious and complex patients. I pride myself on making nervous patients feel at ease and relaxed during treatments. I enjoy educating and improving patients oral hygiene and I find it very rewarding seeing the improvements patients can make at home with simple adjustments to their oral health routine.
In my spare time I enjoy to spend time with my family. I have a son that keeps me busy most of the time!.. I love to cook, enjoy long walks and sunny holidays.
