Sian Smith Dip. Orth. Ther. (RCS Edin.)
Orthodontic Therapist and Treatment Co-ordinator
GDC Number: 172766
Work days: Monday – Thursday
Sian joined Face Dental in 2006 working as a dental nurse for Dr Osman and gained her dental nursing qualification in 2008. She then also began working with Dr Kelly during his orthodontic treatment planning sessions.
Sian then developed an interest in orthodontics and completed her certificate in orthodontic nursing and dental impression taking in 2009 and then her qualification in dental radiography in 2010. This led her to a role in orthodontic treatment co-ordination where she had her own sessions discussing available treatment options with patients and planning with them their orthodontic journey.
The practice strives to give patients a better service and experience and also to develop its team member’s skills, so Sian started studying at the University of Central Lancashire in 2013 and graduated from the Royal College of Surgeons as an Orthodontic Therapist.
She now works alongside Dr Osman and Dr Kelly assisting with and carrying out the orthodontic treatments and is our team member responsible for orthodontic quality assurance.
Sian is our first point of contact to orthodontic patients and advises patients on treatment options, appointments and costs and she also manages our NHS orthodontic waiting lists.
Apart from orthodontic treatment, Sian also assists in the training of our other members of staff and has an interest in the use of I.T in dentistry. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with family and friends and has an interest in travel, dining and personal development.
