Our dental nurses

Elaine Martland

Senior Dental Nurse
GDC Number 123341

My position here at Antley Villa is Senior Dental Nurse, with Postgraduate qualifications in Dental Sedation and Dental Radiography.

I am a Registered Dental Care Professional with the GDC (The General Dental Council), and the BADN (British association of Dental Nurses). I also qualified in General Nursing in 1989 with nursing experience at Newcastle and Burnley General Hospitals.

I have over 30 years of experience of care in all sections of the community and thoroughly enjoy my dental career. I believe in creating a caring, relaxing environment within the dental surgery and aim to provide the highest standard of nursing achievable.

Having been part of the team at Antley Villa for almost 14 years I have worked alongside all of the Dentists and presently work with Dr Thompson who assures me that we make a great team!

Dentistry has been a big part of my adult life, having married Mark, a dentist who also has worked at Antley Villa in the past. We have a daughter who is currently working in Australia and a son who is an Officer in the RAF.

I am a keen walker and novice climber and a member of Burnley Mountaineering club. I also enjoy keeping fit by practicing yoga.

Debra Schofield

I have been a Dental Nurse since 2006 and attained the qualification in Dental Nursing in 2008. I also hold a Postgraduate qualification in assisting the dentist with Conscious Sedation.

I work with Dr Philip Baron the Principal Dental Surgeon in surgery 1.

I really enjoy all aspects of dental nursing especially taking time to care for patients.

Louise Taylor

Dental Nurse
GDC Number 239500

I recently re-joined the team at Antley Villa in September 2015 and work alongside Dr Whitham, although I started my career as a Dental Nurse in March 2010.

I particularly enjoy the challenges of working in surgery and interacting with patients and caring for their needs and requirements. I have completed my NVQ Level 3 in Dental Nursing.

Although spare time is limited, due to family/children commitments, when I do get time to myself I enjoy cooking and shopping.

Emma Stokes

Dental Nurse
GDC Number 231645

My position at Antley villa is nurse to Dr Safdar, an Inman Aligner dentist. I also regularly nurse for Oral Surgeon and Implantologist Dr Kennair.

I am registered with the General Dental Council and the British Association of Dental Nurses. I am currently working towards a post graduate qualification in conscious sedation which will enable me to continue working with our nervous patients at the next level.

I am constantly striving to ensure my skills and knowledge are up to date by attending and completing continuing professional development courses.

I enjoy working with the team at Antley Villa and providing the best care and treatment for our patients.
