Karen Rawles

Hygienist

GDC Reg. no 6476

I attended Birmingham Dental School and achieved a Diploma in Dental Hygiene in 2004 after being a qualified Dental nurse since 1984.

I am married with two sons and we have lived in Stafford for 18 years. I enjoy an active life, regularly attending Zumba classes, horse riding and country walks. I also love artistic pursuits such as painting and sculpture.

I regularly attend courses to keep regularly informed of new advances in Dentistry, including the most up to date training of administering local anaesthetics, taking radiographs and impression taking.

I received training to provide the latest Advance whitening treatment at the practice.

As a promoter of health through dental care, I get satisfaction in educating and building relationships with patients, and providing a bespoke service to suit different needs.

June 05 2020 Update – Reopening Soon!

We are excited to be preparing for our return to the practice as soon as possible after the 8th June.  We know it is important to keep our patients as informed as possible and we wanted to let you know there will be some slight changes in your visits during the next few months.

Shifnal Dental Care has always adhered to the rigorous cross infection procedures set out by the governing bodies and all of our team members are highly trained in all aspects of cross infection control.  However, there are some additional Covid-19 procedures to follow and one of these is the social distancing rules that we have all become used to over the last couple of months.

You will receive information  before your appointment, this may be via email or via the post or a telephone conversation this will include some details you will need to complete before attending.  This will help us to continue to keep our patients and teams safe.

Things to know about your next appointment:

  • Before leaving home please remember to brush your teeth, use the toilet and wash your hands for 20 seconds before leaving.
  • Please bring the minimal number of belongings with you.
  • Please phone us once you have arrived in the carpark.
  • Please wait in your car or by the door and we will call you in as soon as possible.
  • Please attend unaccompanied unless you require a carer or parent.
  • On entry into the practice – we will have a welcome point and a member of our team will take your temperature, ask you to sanitise your hands.
  • In the surgery , we will be wearing full PPE- please do not be worried it is still us!
  • Before you leave the surgery we will ask you to sanitise your hands.
  • When you leave the surgery we will begin the disinfection and sterilisation process of the surgery.
  • Payments and future bookings will be organised at reception keeping within the social distancing rules.

We hope you understand that this is for everyone’s safety and we would appreciate your patience and cooperation as we negotiate these difficult times.
