Dawn Smith

After leaving school in Germany in 1973, Dawn applied for a post as a Dental Nurse in Oxford and decided this was the profession she wanted to be a part of. She moved to Perth in 1976 and gained her qualification as a Dental Nurse whilst working in the Community Dental Department. She then got married and left the profession for a while in 1978 to have her children.

The family moved to Peterhead in Aberdeenshire and in 1983 went to work in the local dental practice. The practice had 5 dentists and an orthodontist. She then gained some skills and knowledge in orthodontics and when she moved to Perth in 1989 went to work in an orthodontic practice where she gained her qualification in Dental Practice Management in 1998.

She was fortunate to join the Cherrybank team in 2006 where she has been able to use her management skills to oversee all departments and be part of the successful growth of Cherrybank Dental Spa.
