Meet The Team

Smile Advisors

A Smile Advisor plays an essential role in a dental team by facilitating the smooth running of the practice, providing a link between patients and dentists, and providing the information patients need to make informed decisions.

It is their duty to understand each patient's unique journey and to consider the individual needs of the dental team. A Smile Advisor will meet with patients to discuss treatment options and generally make sure that they are able to make informed decisions. Often, patients will have questions about the cost of treatment, how long treatment will take and what the process involves. It the role of the Smile Advisor is to answer such questions and address concerns.

Cassie Standen – Reception Manager

Cassie Standen

I have had many years in management throughout my career and have a real passion for customer service. I love chatting to patients about their families, job or event they’re having treatment for. Especially if it is something like their wedding! Knowing I have been part of giving them their dream smile is such an amazing feeling. I have shed many happy tears with patients over the years. My reception team and I are at the heart of the practice and will always go above and beyond to help patients in any way we can.

I am a full time dental nurse at Dental Studio Waterlooville and have been since 2016. My favourite part of my job is seeing the transformation of patients once we have given them their dream smile.

Showing them their before and after photos is something patients and I both love and being able to see your hard work physically pay off is priceless.
