    Mihret Gray

    Mihret Gay


    I have recently graduated from Uni. Having studied psychology and philosophy, dentistry is entirely different to what I know. However, it’s a welcomed challenge as I have a love for learning and within my job every day is a school day! There’s always something new to discover, whether it’s learning about implants, dentures or what type of filling can be used. Outside of work my favourite things to do are jamming out to ABBA, being in the sea or surrounded by dogs!

    I've been nursing since 2012 when I trained with the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses and I joined Fresh in early 2017. Since then, I have developed my passion for learning and expanding my knowledge. I later qualified in Oral health education, radiography, and implantology nursing. My real passion is educating others, so since joining fresh I have been well known in the local community for my school and nursery visits. I enjoy spending my spare time with my family, friends and love nothing more than going on adventures with my beautiful cockapoo.
