Annabelle Hampton   |   Practice Co-ordinator

 

My position here at Duxton Dental entails meeting and greeting all our clients and anyone else visiting the practice either in person or on the telephone. It is my responsibility to ensure the practices day to day running goes smoothly to benefit all involved.

 

Career History

 

After leaving school I spent many years in different areas of the cut flower industry. This took me on many adventures, one of these being a trip to Holland to visit the expansive auction markets and tulip fields. After 14 years with one company I decided to look for a new challenge in my life. In 2002 I found it! I am still thoroughly enjoying my role here at Duxton Dental.

 

Qualifications

  • Diploma in Horticulture - Lincoln University
  • Correspondence papers in Horticulture - Wellington Correspondence Institute
  • Grades 1-7 Certificates in Music Theory

 

Duxton Dental have sent me on many courses over the years to increase my knowledge and skills in this roll.

 

Interests

 

I have a great love of animals. Living on a ten acre block with a large garden, cats, dogs, cattle and chickens fills in a lot of my spare time. I have a keen interest in the outdoors, tramping and gardening.

Nell

Sally Nell   |   Practice Manager

 

I am a country girl who went nursing then married a farmer, Graham. This led to chasing sheep, feeding hay, driving tractors, living in an implement shed, buying Mt Algidus Station, teaching our four children, cooking for lots of men, and going grocery shopping once every three months. We then bought a Christchurch factory where I ran the office.


After 12 years as a Duxton Dental patient, I progressed to working here behind the scenes, looking after the general running of the practice, handling the financial side and most importantly staff welfare.

 

Interests

 

I find time for bike riding with Sue Smith-one of our wonderful Dental Assistants, as well as reading, walking, gardening, sewing and keeping track of what my children and grandchildren are up to.

Sonia Perry   |   Patient Co-ordinator / Receptionist

 

I joined the Duxton Dental team in 2000 as a part-time clinical assistant. My hours increased over the years along with a variety of roles within the practice including front office and then patient co-ordinator in 2011. I get so much enjoyment out of my role as patient co-ordinator, meeting with new patients, putting them at ease, listening to their concerns and supporting their decisions. I get to spend time with each patient explaining in detail their personalised treatment options and answering their questions.


We receive such good feedback about this and they have a better understanding and control over their oral health. I feel fortunate to have met some lovely patients over the years and always look forward to seeing them at their routine check-ups. Everybody within the practice plays such an important role in providing the best possible care for our patients, it is such a privilege to be part of such an awesome team!


Career History

 

My dental career started in 1992 working for three and half years as a clinical assistant/receptionist in a small practice in Oamaru. A move to Christchurch in 1996 brought about a world of opportunities from assisting the school dental therapists to moving onto the Oral Health Centre assisting the house surgeons and gaining experience in oral surgery.

 

Over the years I have been fortunate to have had experience within some specialist practices- Oral & Maxillofacial, Endodontist, Prosthodontist and Orthodontic.

 

Qualifications

  • 1997 NZDA Dental Assistant Course - Top Marks in Canterbury
  • 1997 - 2009 First Aid & CPR Training on a regular basis
  • 2007 Nobel Biocare Surgical Assistant Workshop
  • 2000 - Current CPR

 

Interests

 

Life feels crazy busy at times with a husband and two teenagers to keep tabs on. Im a keen walker and am out on a daily basis with my boxerdoodle ‘Hudson’. Having taken art classes has brought about a bit of an arty side to me which I am still exploring and really enjoying playing around with. I love a good book, great wine and socialising with family and friends.

Katherine English   |   Receptionist / Clinical Support

 

The majority of my time is spent on reception, where I help take care of our patients, making appointments and scheduling diaries for dentists and hygienists. At times I support our hygienist and help with sterilization for all the surgeries. I enjoy getting to know our patients and helping them, the variety in my roles and particularly the lovely people I work with here.


I thoroughly enjoy being given the opportunity to learn about dentistry there is barely a day that goes by that does not bring a new experience and understanding.

 

Career History

 

I am relatively new to working with dentistry, starting here in 2011, prior to this I came from a background of library, administration and reception work. It’s great to have the opportunity to expand my work experience into a new area. I am loving learning about dentistry, while being able to utilize my other skills.

 

Interests

 

I am a lifelong collector of antiques, I started at age 12!

 

My wardrobe over flows with my vintage clothing collection, with most dating between 1920-1960. I love cooking beautiful meals, enjoying and learning about wines, practicing yoga and attending dance lessons... I also happen to have the cutest dog - “Pearl the Pug”.
