Cara whitehouse

Cara started her career in dentistry in 2011 as a trainee dental nurse. During this time Cara realised she had a passion for orthodontics. In light of this, Cara decided to further her education in orthodontic therapy which would allow her to treat patients under the supervision of an orthodontist. Cara underwent her orthodontic therapy training at Bristol dental school, graduating with a diploma in orthodontic therapy from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Cara also achieved additional Dental Radiography and Oral Health Education qualifications. Cara currently works at the Brighton branch of Portman Smile Clinic.

In her free time, Cara also enjoys wholesome activities such as playing her ukulele, playing board games with friends and travelling in her campervan.
