I am a busy Mum of two lovely daughters age 12 and 5. You may see me Morris Dancing with Jenny Pipes Morris side in the summer months. I love to spend my spare time baking delicious cakes and chutnies.
At Beacon DentalCare I love to look after people who are less than keen on visiting the dentist. I have a particular interest in whitening teeth, and have won a prize from Bristol University for Periodontology (work with gum disease).
My main dental interest is helping people to keep their smiles for life!
I enjoy putting people at their ease and the sound of laughter often eminates from my room as we enjoy comedy DVDs during peoples treatment.
- Dr Thomas Norlin
- DDS Odont Lic
- GDC registration number: 74192
Dr Thomas Norlin D.D.S., Odont. Lic. was appointed Clinical Director of the Dental Spa in 2009. Born in Sweden he completed his training as a dentist in Stockholm in 1998 and qualified as an Implantologist in 2001.
His work includes surgical grafting procedures such as block grafts, sinus lifting and apicectomies, as well as implantology, has gained him considerable respect from other professionals in the area for whom he carries out specialist referral work. His philosophy on dentistry is to ensure that patients receive the best possible treatment outcome, excellent customer service and a well informed and thorough dental experience.
In his leisure time, when he is not being persuaded by his sons to swim, play football or go trampolining, Thomas enjoys art, music and travelling for relaxation and scuba diving, skiing and kayaking for fun...
- Mrs Lisa Gibbs
I qualified from the Royal Air Force Institute of Dental Health and Training in 1989. Since then I have worked in several fields, clinically in both private and NHS practice, as a tutor and on a course design team updating the diploma in dental hygiene syllabus.
I am happily married and mum to three small children, one boy and two girls. I am often found on the trampoline or playing football or frisbee. I also play hockey in the Severn Division ? we win some, lose some and draw some! I also enjoy skiing and the very occasional round of golf. I love my garden and cooking (and of course the eating!) ? but find there is never enough time to do it all.
- Lee- Anne Smith

Lee-Anne qualified at Birmingham dental hospital, and works in various dental practices in the area.
She has a particular interest in looking after people who are 'scared of the dentist' and spends some of her time outside work 'tweeting' with other dental hygeinists online.

I have lived in Malvern as a qualified Dental Nurse for 30 years. In that time I have also become qualified as an Oral Health Educator and Practice Manager. For the last five years I have been a fully qualified NVQ Assessor, helping new nurses achieve the legal requirements of the profession.
I will continue to be involved in providing high quality in-house training for nurses at Beacon DentalCare to ensure our patients get the best quality treatment and service at all levels.
I enjoy walking on the hills and meeting new people, and will be doing my bit to reduce the carbon footprint of the practice by walking to work!
