Carla qualified in Newcastle in 1991. She has worked in Saffron Walden since 1997 and started Courtyard Dental Practice in 2007.
She is interested in all aspects of dentistry but particularly in preventive and minimally invasive dentistry. If aesthetic improvements to teeth are desired, most healthy, beautiful smiles can be created using a combination of straightening, whitening and edge bonding, leaving teeth looking their best whilst preserving tooth tissue.
We need our teeth to last for life and communicating the importance of prevention of dental disease - tooth decay, gum disease and also tooth wear and tear - is a key part of Carla's work with her patients.
Carla also provides Invisalign and facial rejuvenation techniques.
