Team Spotlight: Kelly Mcgeechan

Here at Dental Solutions, we believe that one of the most standout elements of any visit through our doors is the staff. And we know that you agree! For this reason, we have decided to shine the light on a number of our fabulous team members. This week we get to know Kelly McGeechan, our latest receptionist, a little bit better…

A Little About Kelly

Kelly has joined our Reception team, having most recently lived abroad for 6 years in Dubai working in the Oil and Gas industry. She has lived a very colourful life, living in many countries due to her father being in the military when she was growing up. Kelly also attended boarding school in North Wales – Penrhos College.

Icebreaker question: name three of your favourite things. No wrong answers here!

My dog Millie, who is a wirehaired dachshund. Also, I love cheese and the British countryside. After living in the Middle East for 7 years, it has made me appreciate England so much more.

Okay, so you’re new to Dental Solutions. What drew you to working here?

It’s a very new industry for me, in fact, I used to have a fear of dentists. But, watching the procedures and understanding the treatments has been interesting, I have taken a real interest.

You’ve never worked in dentistry before, why the change?

Since leaving Oil and Gas, which is a tough industry, when I left the Middle East, I started work in a thread veins clinic as a coordinator and from there decided that I wanted to work in a medical field. Mainly as I wanted to work in an environment where I could help patients overcome cosmetic fears, etc. Seeing a patient who had so much fear beforehand come out of an appointment smiling is always so heartwarming.

What’s the best part of your day at Dental Solutions?

Meeting and greeting Patients, learning and seeing something new each day, and the team I work with.

Any surprises since joining? It must be a big change from the oil and gas industry.

I have surprised myself how interested I have become in Teeth, considering I hated the dentist and hated needles. I’ve had the opportunity to watch an implant procedure, which is fascinating.

What would you like to be famous for? Realistically, what would you actually be famous/infamous for?

A travel expert, just call me Judith Charmers #2.

The title of your autobiography is…

Life, Love and a dash of Sass

You to like to travel, all over the world, are there any truly memorable moments or places that stand out to you?

Hawaii is stunning, the locals are so chilled out, the islands themselves are so lush and green.

Alaska for its amazing wildlife, and Panama for the rainforests and all the cute sloths I saw.

What was the last thing you read/watched/listened to?

Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra which reminds me of my old clubbing days. I last watched the Connor McGregor “Notorious” documentary and it was brilliant, he comes across as such a nice guy. I also like boxing.

The last book that I read was the Gordon Ramsey Autobiography, I love his blunt wit and personality.

And finally, what do you do to wind down after work every day?

I literally just change my shoes to trainers and walk my dog down the country lanes where I live, weather permitting, sausage dogs hate the rain. Then, I love pouring a good glass of merlot and putting the candles on.

And there you have it, everything you need to know about Kelly! Have any more questions for her? Well, simply book an appointment and you can see her in reception for yourself. Or simply call the reception on 01925 756565 – she’s always happy to help answer your questions and help find an appointment that’s right for you.

Initially I was quite apprehensive about having 2 implants, but upon my consultation with Gavin ., i felt encouraged by his knowledge and advice . The whole experience in a very relaxed atmosphere could not have been any better. I am well impressed by their professionalism and expertise in this Practice and would most certainly give them a Top Class recommendation .

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.
