Janice Dawes - Manager at the Hockley Dental PracticeJanis Dawes (Manager)

I have been in dentistry for almost 50 years, the last 46 with Hockley Dental Surgery. I became Practice Manageress in 1992 when John took over from his retiring father. Part of my various duties include maintaining a high standard of clinical excellence among the staff. Ensuring they maintain the highest standard of cross-infection and health and safety for all out patients, who are our first priority. I have seen the practice grow over the many years I have worked here, and am proud to still be a team member.

Lois Everitt - Reception team at Hockley Dental PracticeLois Everitt - National Diploma in Dental Nursing 2016

I began my career in dentistry 5 years ago working as a dental receptionist. I then went on to train and became a fully qualified Dental Nurse in April 2016. I have been lucky enough to assist in various aspects of dentistry and have developed a special interest in implant and sedation dentistry, for which I have received further SAAD training. My time at Hockley Dental Surgery is divided between the reception desk and nursing in the surgery. I really enjoy my job, especially helping nervous patients overcome their fears. In my spare time I can be found decorating or attempting to get fit at the gym!
