Hygienists

Michelle McElhinney – GDC Reg. 6570

Dental Hygienist

Michelle qualified with distinction in 2004 from Newcastle University and subsequently won the General Dental Council prize for professionalism.

Michelle enjoys providing a first class service to patients by facilitating and instilling good oral hygiene practices, allowing for prevention of both long and short term gum problems. She’s a bit of a perfectionist (which drives her husband mad) and takes great satisfaction when seeing the benefits of the dental hygiene maintenance programme; namely progressive and continuing improvement in both dental and general health.

When not at work Michelle is occupied by two adventurous and energetic young boys and her eldest son (along with his friends). When Michelle gets a rare escape from the hustle and bustle of both home and work life, she enjoys walking along the river Nidd, with a pit-stop in Marigolds café (of course!)

Kate Wright (Roylance) – GDC Reg. 4697

Dental Hygienist

Kate works for Linden House as a Dental Hygienist and shares her time with another surgery.

She has recently returned to us after having her first child a hiatus which must surely have increased her love of the intricate crochet and embroidery work she is often found beavering away during quieter moments in surgery.
