Paula Lindsey

Paula Lindsay RDH - Hygienist

GDC No. 4601

Paula has been a member of the team at Lightwood since qualifying from Liverpool Dental Hospital in 1994. Paula embraces all aspects of the new technology we have introduced to the practice and is an active contributor to an on-line hygienist forum. As with all of our hygiene team, she maintains her professional expertise with regular training and courses.

As well as a busy mum of two and due to family pressure, a (reluctant) Manchester City fan!

Kerri Rust

Kerri Rust Andrews BSc RDH – Hygienist

GDC No. 178734

Kerri originally trained as a speech therapist with a degree in linguistics before embarking on a long-standing desire to become a dental hygienist. Qualifying from Sheffield, Kerri is the newest addition to our hygiene team and has fitted in really well with her passion for the subject and attention to detail.

Originally from Norfolk, she now lives with her partner in Cheshire and enjoys running, walking and playing the piano and Irish whistle (but not at the same time!).
