Throughout her career, Kathryn has worked in hospitals across the Yorkshire and North West region, where she has played a significant role in organizing and developing undergraduate education in areas such as medical emergencies management, sedation, and oral surgery. Her surgical expertise encompasses the treatment of various disorders of the teeth, mouth, and jaws, including surgical removal of wisdom teeth and buried or impacted teeth. Additionally, she is experienced in pre-prosthetic/implant surgery and managing abnormalities of the soft tissues of the mouth, lips, and facial skin. Kathryn also provides assistance to other specialists and dentists who require sedation for patients with specific anxieties related to treatment.
