Stacey Summers

Dip Orth RCSEd
Lead Dental Nurse and Treatment Coordinator
GDC: 139039

Stacey joined our GGO family in 2015 and has over 15 years of experience in dentistry. In 2010 Stacey travelled to Australia as a dental nurse where she found her passion in orthodontics, running her own chair and seeing her own patients. After training in a number of different fields within dentistry, including community care, general anaesthetics, implants and cosmetic dentistry, Stacey developed a keen interest in orthodontics and joined our team as our lead nurse and treatment coordinator where her passion accelerated. Within a year of being with us, her ambition and passion led her to university where she then trained and qualified as an Orthodontic Therapist through the Royal College Of Surgeons Edinburgh.

“Every day I get to be a part of something so special. I love seeing everyone’s individual journeys from the moment they first come in, too embarrassed to smile, to debond day (braces off) where they can’t stop admiring their smile in the mirror. To know you have played even the smallest part in that, is such a precious thing. Even if I was to win the lottery tomorrow, I genuinely wouldn’t change where I am or what I am doing. I am so lucky to have found a job that I care so much about”
