Meet The Team


Emma Fletcher – Hygienist – GDC: 6379


I qualified in 2003 from Newcastle Dental Hospital and have worked at Dental Studio since 2014.

My ethos is to treat patients how I would like to be treated.

I have a special interest in treating periodontal (gum) disease and educating patients in their home care, with a non-judgemental approach. I use the latest non-invasive treatments and also aid in the maintenance of dental implants.

I also like to bring the sparkle and offer Zoom in-house whitening.

A career-high in 2022 was to be a finalist in both the prestigious Private Dentistry Awards and Dentistry Awards

Laura Calafate - Dental Hygienist – GDC: 291900

I am a Portuguese Dental Hygienist, qualified since 2015 in Portugal, and fully registered with the GDC since April 2022.

I am always seeking the best version of myself to provide the best treatment possible to my patients. Passionate about education, I believe we are always learning every day and never too late to change habits toward health.

I am outgoing and love spending time with family & friends but also addicted to movies and TV series.

My genes dictated I should have myopia so you'll probably find me squint 90% of the time. Also, I enjoy lifting weights and forks as well, balance is key, right?

Josie Cotton – Dental Hygienist/Therapist – GDC: 134026

I started my career in the Dental field as a Dental Nurse, qualifying in 2006. I soon realised dentistry was also a passion and wanted to progress further in this.

In 2011, I attended the University of Portsmouth and went on to achieve a BSc Honours Degree in Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy, qualifying in 2014.

Since then, I have been dedicated to my profession working in different dental settings to expand my knowledge and skills.

Aside from dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my husband, family, and friends, and socialising. I also like to keep fit and healthy with exercise.

I joined the Dental Studio in 2020. It’s great to be part of such a fantastic and caring dental team.

Dental Hygiene is the aspect I feel most passionate about, with a preventative approach. Providing treatment with a caring nature. Understanding a patient’s individual needs and motivations enables us to achieve their oral health goals and provide a gentle and comfortable experience.

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.

Annette Batchford – Dental Nurse/Front of House Team - GDC: 140098

I have been a qualified Dental Nurse since 2004. I started at Dental Studio in 2002, and ever since dental studio has been the other half of my life, I have a family of three beautiful girls and a fiancée (hence the other half).

I love working for Dental Studio as “they are the best“ and when I say the best, I mean it. We are supported with course after course, training after training. Why so many courses you may ask? Because our patients need to be given the best service and quality around in our care.

There’s a reason we provide not 5 but 7 ⭐️ service to our patients. As we care about everyone who becomes part of Dental Studio.

Other than my love and desire for my job I also enjoy spending time with my family on my days off which includes fun activities like bowling or swimming and then a nice meal after. Our family love just all being together when we can.
