Gareth Jones BDS
I graduated from Liverpool University’s School of Dentistry in 2003, where I was awarded the HR Williams prize for oral surgery.
I take pride in providing high-quality dentistry in a relaxed, gentle and unhurried manner and enjoy meeting people and getting to know them as their treatment progresses. It gives me a real sense of satisfaction when I show people the results of their treatment and see their expressions. I also enjoy learning about different techniques and treatments that can benefit my patients.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two boys. I’m a keen athlete and in recent years have completed several triathlons, including an Ironman, and two marathons.
Practice manager and dental nurse
I started working as a dental nurse in 1998 and qualified in 2000. I have mainly worked in a general dental practice, however, I previously worked for three years in a specialist orthodontic practice as an orthodontic nurse, and with a visiting periodontist and implantologist.
I like being challenged on a daily basis and as a friendly, outgoing person I enjoy meeting new people, which means my job is ideal. I enjoy all aspects of dental nursing, especially patient interaction and making sure the patient is happy and comfortable.
Over the last few years, I have taken on more responsibilities, taking on more reception work and am now training to be the practice manager.
My son and my dog keep me on my toes at home! In my free time, I like to read, watch movies, make bobbin lace, walk the dog and nose around antique shops.
I have been working as a dental nurse since 2009. I joined the Monmouth Dental Practice team a few years ago and I feel I have settled in well. I enjoy meeting new people and helping to provide a calming, caring service to the many lovely patients here.
I enjoy all aspects of dental nursing whilst helping to maintain the high standards Gareth and the rest of the team provide for his patients.
I am also a mum of two girls, which takes up a lot of my free time. When not running them about I enjoy other hobbies including massage. I like sports but not quite as much as Gareth! I have an interest in playing badminton and swimming, when I can, and am partial to a long walk on a sunny winter’s day.
I am Gareth’s Mum and I joined the practice in April 2015. Having grown up in Uganda, I returned to this country when I was 14 and we eventually settled in Herefordshire.
After leaving school, I trained for a career in hospitality management, which resulted in working in different sectors of the industry, all of which have brought their own challenges but I loved it.
After many years at a local hotel, it felt like the time had come to cut back on the hours. Working with people has always been the best part of my career so joining the team here as a part time receptionist is ideal for me.
Although I like many crafts, my main hobby is bobbin lacemaking. I enjoy designing patterns and teaching new lacemakers and my youngest recruit is Gareth’s older son, Osian, who is a natural.
With the “kids” having left home I have been able to travel more to some great locations. When time allows, I also enjoy reading and spending time with the family.
