Focus On Louise Hickling – Dental Nurse


The newest member of our nursing team, Louise moved to Cheshire, Warrington, with her fiancé Chris in October last year. Originally from London, Louise moved to Lymm with Chris who was born & raised in the village, as she enjoyed visiting so much- particularly the friendly people, beautiful surroundings and more affordable housing!

Louise has spent most of the past decade in Cambridge and graduated with a degree in Photography from The Cambridge School of Art, and has been a Clinical Photographer and dental nurse ever since. She explains ‘I have developed a real passion for all areas of cosmetic dentistry over the years, and I particularly enjoy helping with patient education and information, and helping to ensure our patients have a great and informative experience here at Dental Solutions, Warrington.


I enjoy my additional duties as well as nursing – particularly the photo shoots and numerous charity events we’ve held over the past year. Her extra qualifications within the field (radiography, impression-taking and photography) mean that Louise also has patients booked in with her, and will also assist our dentists during appointments while they plan their treatments by carrying out dental x-rays, impressions for study models and appliances, and clinical photos. These information-gathering appointments mean that our dentists can plan treatment, have certain appliances made, and make up our essential clinical records kept on file for our patients.

She explains ‘ I have also carried out several post-treatment photo shoots for patients who have undergone treatments with us so they can have a professional printed & framed photo of their new smile, and several photo files from the shoot with our compliments! It’s great to put my degree to even more use, and I love to see the patients through their journey, then photograph them professionally at the end of it’.

Outside of work, Louise is currently busy organising her forthcoming wedding on the 11th of September, and then honeymooning to one of their favourite destinations Disneyland Paris, after being proposed to last year in Disneyland Florida!

Louise is a big animal lover – she has 2 house rabbits called Mister and Mrs Binks, a hamster, and walks a Springador called Bailey for a local family once a week. She enjoys photography outside of work (not just of teeth!), loves her little blue Smart Car, and riding her motorbike with Chris and friends, particularly to The Cat and Fiddle & taking in the beautiful scenery of Matlock. She also listens to many genres of music & loves attending rock concerts with friends when she can. Visiting family and friends who are dotted around the country tend to absorb her time on weekends also!

The best experience. When you step through the door you are met by the friendliest receptionist,Which continues through the practice. If you want the best dental care and treatments across the board this is where you need to go.

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.

I recently needed some urgent treatment and after trying a couple of dentists in the area, dental solutions were the only dentist that agreed to see me, genuinely nobody else showed any interest in helping me. The receptionist I spoke to initially was super compassionate and understanding and did all she could to get me in asap. I saw Lauren for all of my appointments, and I’ve now had: a composite filling, root canal and emax crown and just yesterday had a wisdom tooth extracted. I don't know what Lauren does but I have had zero pain or discomfort with any treatments during and after. I'm extremely happy with the results of her work. She definitely knows her stuff and filled me with the utmost confidence whilst in the chair! I literally cant find any fault with any of the experiences I have had so far. They go the extra mile and do it with a smile. What more can you ask for?! Definitely my dentist for the foreseeable future! Thank you Lauren and everyone!

Had my initial consultation with Lauren, truly professional and extremely friendly. She explained all my options in detail and following discussions opted for veneers and can't wait to see the end result.
