Adele Holland

My career in dentistry started in 2007, and I quickly developed a passion for the industry.

I have spent many years being lucky enough to work alongside some of the best clinicians in the UK, training and gaining knowledge in all areas and aspects of dentistry. Over the years I have developed my skill set and taken on the roles of treatment coordinator, head nurse, compliance manager and implant co ordinator, expanding specifically in implantology and surgical procedures. Later in my career I began leading courses for clinicians and nurses in implantology, specifically in asepsis, full arch and immediate loading and I now enjoy lecturing and training other nurses in all areas of implant and surgical dentistry.

I have gained post qualifications in radiography, intravenous sedation and dental implant nursing.
