Having not worked in this type of role before, Kirsty uses her natural instincts to make our clients feel at ease, relaxed and nerve-free. In Kirsty’s free time she likes to put herself through her paces, if she’s not twisting those feet in ballroom or Latin dancing, she’s using them to chuck herself down hills on an electric push bike. Kirsty is starting her own journey with Invisalign which has been a great way to get to know our products and have an awesome smile whilst going through this journey with our clients.
