Joanne Thornton trained at the Salford School for Dental Care Professionals. Joanne obtained a qualification in Dental Hygiene and a qualification in Dental Therapy from the Royal College of Surgeons in March 2013. After qualifying she worked in many sectors of dentistry including oral health promotions within schools and prisons aiming at improving the oral health of mothers and their children. Joanna found this work very rewarding. During her academic training Joanna was part of a research team for a Colgate clinical trial. She also helped promoted the dental charity “Heart your Smile” for the BSDHT. All this has further increased the enjoyment I have of my dental hygienist and therapist role within dentistry.
Seven years of working dental experience in various medical settings.
