In Surgery Ruth graduated from Liverpool Dental School in 2007. She completed her Vocational Training in Wrexham, and then went on to complete a 12 month General Professional Training post with North Wales Community Dental Service (NWCDS).
Experience was gained in treating children, patients with complex medical and social histories, sedation and general anaesthesia cases as well as cases within the hospital oral surgery department. On completion of this training post she remained working for NWCDS providing general dental treatment for NHS patients at the Health Centre in Bethesda. Simultaneously she spent 2 years working for the North Wales emergency dental services.
In 2014 she completed a 12 month restorative dentistry training course following which she started studying for an MSc in endodontics. In 2017 she undertook a clinical attachment with the former Restorative Consultant and specialist in endodontics who proceeded to refer cases to her. It was at this time she started working with a microscope and began treating more complex cases.
As well as completing a masters in endodontics, she has undertaken several short courses in endodontics including shadowing specialist endodontists Dr Mark Hunter, past president of the British Endodontic society and Dr Sanjeev Bhanderi, president of the British endodontic society. She has decided to limit her practice to endodontics so that she can strengthen her career in this speciality area of dentistry which she finds both stimulating and rewarding. She works part time for North Wales Community Dental Service as a Senior Dental Officer taking endodontic referrals, mainly for paediatric trauma and oncology patients. As part of E N D O M ô N she takes private referrals from dentists and self referring patients across all of North Wales managing a wide range of endodontic problems.
Out of surgery, Ruth loves running and is a member of the local fell running club, Eryri Harriers. She also enjoys skiing, yoga, and practices meditation which nicely balances out the hectic side of her life, being a mum to three children, two house bunnies and two noisy dogs!
