During this time Rachael also carried out a Masters in Dental Science at the University of Liverpool, looking at ways of preventing marks on the teeth (enamel demineralisation) during brace treatment.

She has a particular interest in working with nervous patients and helping them achieve a smile they are proud to show off. Rachael can offer treatment with fixed and removable appliances, and aesthetic and invisible braces including Invisalign, meaning there really is a treatment option to suit everyone!Rachael is a keen member of the Local Dental Committee and enjoys working closely with her colleagues in the local hospital orthodontic departments on more complex or multidisciplinary cases.
