Miss Nicole Crommer
Dental Hygienist. Diploma in Dental Hygiene RDH
Nicole Cromner started out in dentistry as a Dental Nurse from school but wanted to be more involved in the patient journey and had a keen interest in oral hygiene. Nicole trained as a hygienist at The Eastman Dental Hospital in London where she qualified in 2010. She now works at Dental Care Partnership providing excellent oral hygiene to our patients.
Nicole gains great job satisfaction from providing patients with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to maintain their teeth and implants. She has a particular interest in periodontal treatment and whitening.
In September Nicole took some time out to complete some charity work where she went to Northern Morocco with the dental charity ‘Dental Mavericks’ to treat children in a remote village who have little or no access to a dentist. Nicole said “The trip was so rewarding but also humbling. These children were in pain, and have to live with it on a daily basis as there is no dental care. After treating them, they went back to school and played with their friends as if nothing had happened. Incredibly brave children”
In her spare time, Nicole loves being at home with her family. Being part of an enthusiastic team of professionals is for Nicole one of the most enjoyable parts of working at Dental Care Partnership.
