Congratulations Linda!

We are very proud to celebrate our senior dental nurse, Linda Hanmer, who has recently past the milestone of 30 years working at Ryton Dental!

As well as running her surgery, assisting the dentist and sterilising instruments, Linda is in charge of our central sterilisation room. She ensures all our sterilisation and emergency equipment is functioning properly.

 Rita (retired Practice Manager)

“Linda & I started working together 27 years ago when we shared the late evening & Saturday morning shifts. We always got on & worked well together. Assisting many young dentists whilst taking turns to supply them with breakfast, & often relationship advice!  Years later, when I became practice manger, Linda was an invaluable member of the team. A very experienced, competent Nurse who I could always rely on. Well done Linda on reaching your 30 year anniversary.”

“A familiar face, with a cool, calm head”

Over the years Linda has cared for almost all the patients in the practice. Her nature is that of calm, reassurance which echoes throughout the practice and has helped ease many patient anxieties over the years. Patient’s now actively seek out Linda on their visit, making sure she’s still around as she is a sign of the caring nature of the practice

She has seen the practice transform over the past 4 years and has risen to the challenges of new changes brought in. We would all like to sincerely say Thank you to Linda for everything she has done over the years!

Here’s to 30 more!
