Cherie Garside

Practice Manager and Senior Clinical Coordinator

Hi, my name is Cherie. I am the Practice Manager and Senior Clinical Coordinator at Gentle Dental having joined the team in Autumn 2019.

I have worked in private practice for 10 years in the U.K., Australia, Ireland and South Africa. My broad experience of different practices, specialist procedures and healthcare regimes has provided me with an opportunity to absorb “best in class” practices and adopt them to improve client experience and clinical excellence.

During my work, I have completed training in radiography, digital scanning and assisting in implant planning as well as.

I am constantly seeking to improve the client service, efficient running and growth of dental practices. I am driven to improve clinical standards and service delivery. Continuously updating my knowledge about legislation and best practice standards as well as training our team are very important to me. I also have a passion for clinical work and the results that I have assisted in providing patients. Aside from general dentistry, I enjoy surgical and prosthodontic procedures.

Outside of work, my passions include dodging exercise, cooking different cuisines and travelling off the beaten track.
