Dr Roxanna Smith
B.D.S (Bristol), M.A Law (Cantab), L.L.M (UCL).
I studied dentistry at Bristol University and graduated with a merit in Oral Surgery and Restorative Dentistry. I completed my training in Swansea and since then I have worked in Bristol and, mostly, in my home town of Plymouth. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry; especially cosmetic work, prosthodontics (dentures), root canal treatment and oral surgery. Although it sounds like a cliche, for the most part, I genuinely enjoy caring for my patients and (dare I say it) from seeing them smile.
I grew up in Yealmpton and attended the local primary school and Devonport High School for Girls. I originally read Law at Cambridge University and trained to become a barrister in London. I undertook a Master’s in Environmental Law at University College London and was proud to graduate with distinction. Although I enjoyed pursuing my interests working for human rights and environmental organisations in London, ultimately I wanted to settle back home, so I followed in my father’s footsteps and retrained as a dentist.
Manager – C.Eng M.Eng M.A (Cantab)
I studied Engineering at Cambridge University and previously worked as a Chartered Engineer for Dyson for 9 years – working on everything from hairdryers to electric cars. I have now moved to the area to settle down with my partner and work on our dream of providing a service that gives back to the local community – whilst taking on the new and exciting challenge of helping to run a dental practice.
Dental Nurse – Level 3 Diploma in Dental Nursing QCF City & Guilds
I moved to the area from Pembrokeshire, Wales last year, having worked there as a qualified Dental Nurse for 3 years. I initially took a role in Plymouth as a Dental Nurse at the Naval Base and have now moved to the Plymstock area, joining elburton dental in February 2021. I am enjoying getting to know all of the patients here and look forward to meeting more of you!
