Meet Dr. Kate
Kate qualified as a Dentist from Liverpool University with Honours and Distinction in 2005. Her first job was in a large General Dental practice in Southport. In 2006, Kate returned to the Liverpool Dental hospital in Liverpool and gained her Membership to the Faculty of Dental Surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh in 2008. She has worked in the Dental Hospital ever since, teaching Dental students and helping to treat complex cases. She gained her Postgraduate Certificate in learning and teaching in Higher Education in 2009. Kate gained a Masters Degree with distinction in Endodontics in 2011 and works part time in private practice, taking referrals for complex treatment from colleagues all over the North-West. Kate has also delivered courses to Dentists on tooth whitening, which is one of her special interests. Kate is qualified by the BSCAH (British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis) and IHMDP (Institute of Hypnotherapy for Medical and Dental Practice), she uses hypnosis to help patients with dental injections and non surgical injectables too!
Dr Kate completed her training in facial aesthetics early in 2014, alongside the opening of a hair and beauty business she was heavily involved in. She undergoes training on a regular basis to further enhance her knowledge and skills. She has always been interested in minimal intervention procedures like tooth whitening, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to learn how to work with wrinkle relaxing treatments and fillers. She loves seeing the subtle, rejuvenating and confidence building results that can be gained by using these techniques.
Because Kate is a Dentist, she is very familiar with the facial anatomy, dental students spend a great deal of time studying it in detail, whereas other healthcare professionals tend to gain more of an overview during their study of the entire body.
Anti wrinkle treatments are excellent for treating mild to moderate lines in the face and botulinum toxin can also be used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) very effectively.
Alongside the non surgical treatment, Kate is a great believer in looking after the skin first and foremost as part of a holistic treatment plan and she is able to offer prescription skincare treatments from Obagi for acne, sun damage and fine lines. Kate has also developed her own range of skincare products under the “ReNEW” brand which are made in the UK, not tested on animals and do not contain any parabens or animal products.
