Jenny Otoo

After leaving school Jenny trained and worked as a Dental Nurse.  She loved the preventative side of dentistry and began to realise that giving the right advice to a patient can make a huge difference to their oral health.  This interest motivated her to embark upon the Dental Hygiene course at Essex University.

Jenny has a gentle approach to treating patients which fits perfectly with the caring ethos of MK Dental Spa.  She prefers to get to know her patients and says that she “treats the patient as a whole person, not just a mouth”.

“I know I will receive the help I require not only to get through the door but
to get into the chair for treatment. I wish I had found them years ago”
