About Cavity Dental Staff

Filling your staffing gaps!

It is unlikely that you have an immediate requirement, but with a bit of planning now you will benefit when the time comes. Not only do we supply staff cover, but we also provide in-house and online DBS checks and Qualitative Fit Testing! At Cavity we believe that working in the dental surgery is about a professional career choice not just a job.

I have built up over the last 15 years a loyal workforce to ‘fill the gap’. Couple that with my personal experience as a Practice Manager and we aim at Cavity Dental Staff to make practices staffing pains go away.

We look to build up long-term commercial relationships with Dental Practices. To help them benefit when the time comes that they are short on staff cover, we also provide other services such as our jobs board, DBS checks, fit testing and supplying of FFP3 masks, we aim to be the ‘One Stop Shop‘ for all our clients needs.

Managing Director

I have been with Cavity since 2007.  I initially joined as a part time locum nurse… My role has completely transformed since then and I am now the Managing Director.  My main job is to support the boss and everyone else in Cavity!

Outside of work I am a mum to two, I have a son who is now 15 years old and a little 3 year old daughter, both of which keep me on my toes in their own ways!  Much of my spare time is spent playing taxi for my children! If it’s not football training or matches, it’s racing off to ballet classes!  I do really enjoy the football though being a big fan myself ! I like to keep fit too myself and enjoy cycling, walking and Pilates.

I have worked for many years as an accountant in recruitment until joining the Cavity team in 2016. I started in the accounts team, looking after one of our largest clients. I then progressed to Business Strategy Manager at the end of 2017 and I now look after all our departments working on new strategies to best optimise the business and to continue to provide our clients and locum staff with the best service possible. On top of this, I overlook our participation in shows & events such as ‘ The Dentistry Show’.

Sarah Mortimer

Area Manager

Sarah Mortimer

Area Manager

I started nursing in 1985 and have gained a vast amount of experience over those years; I spent time working with adults and children with special needs. During this time I did a post graduate qualification with the handicapped society which was very rewarding. As senior nurse for the trust I also managed day theatre at Ashford Hospital once a month where we were called the mental dental (not allowed now I dare say)! I then came into specialist recruitment and have been with Cavity since 2009 and have helped develop the role of Area Manager that we have today. I cover a wide area which includes Surrey, Sussex and Kent with the help of my wonderful and highly skilled team of dental nurses.

Area Manager

Area Manager

I cover all of the central Midland areas. Since taking on this role in January 2013 I have built strong client relations and built a well-established team across this wide area. Cavity is a fantastic company to work with, unlike ‘other agencies’ I feel our personal approach pays dividends and our staff feel well supported in their role as locum staff.

I have many years’ experience in dentistry spanning some 16 years now and have been with Cavity just short of 5 years. I gained my National Certificate in 2004, closely followed by my post qualification in Oral Health Education in 2006 and Radiography in 2007. I have also trained to do Fluoride Application under prescription which works well with the OHI qualification. I still nurse on some occasions and really enjoy the varied role that Cavity offers.

Area Manager

I started with Cavity in February 2014, after gaining my qualification in 2011. I worked as a full time locum dental nurse for Cavity and loved it. In the November, I was lucky enough to get the Area Managers job in the West Country so I got to go back home to Devon. It was a huge opportunity for me and totally unexpected as I always thought I wanted to be a hygienist!

I joined the Cavity management team in September 2015 based in the stunning North of England where we have hills, lakes, moors, beaches and lots of castles……oh and a Wall named after an Emperor.

I qualified as a Dental Nurse in 1989 from Newcastle Upon Tyne Dental Hospital and have been lucky enough to have worked in various dental environments from the Army, Hospital, Community to both private and NHS practices. Now I am looking forward to this exciting time of bringing Cavity to the North.

I started in the dentistry straight from school and progressed from Trainee Dental Nurse to Assistant Practice Manager. In my time at this practice I gained my fluoride application certificate and my disclosing and measuring plaque indices certificate.

I joined Cavity in 2013 as a Cavity fairy to which I have gained many experiences in NHS, Private, Ortho Specialists, Community, Hospital and Prisons (some may say I have my black belt!). While being with Cavity I’ve also gained my impression taking certificate.

In 2020 I’ve been lucky to have been given the opportunity to progress to Float Manager. In my new role, I help in looking after the amazing nurses, dentists and hygienists in my area. I am also a fit tester for Cavity.

We Love Our Customers

“The nurses and all the office team are always helpful.”

Dear team, thank you so much for your lovely feedback of both dental staff and head office team. We are always happy to help!

“We had Mazine with us and she was great, any gap she got I saw her helping the only receptionist, she printed out my medical histories for me in the morning AND afternoon and brought them to my surgery. She helped out in decon and I even saw her sorting out all the paperwork for the nurse that was in surgery today. She literally didn’t stop all day and on top of that she always had a smile on her face and was just an all round lovely girl. Thank you Cavity.”

Dear Charlotte, you are very welcome! We are so please to hear Maxine impressed and showed initiative in helping out with all sorts and going above and beyond. She’s amazing!

“I would highly recommend being a locum Dental Nurse. I enjoy the challenge of working with different team members and seeing how each practice runs their day to day clinics. No practice is the same and that’s what makes being a locum Dental Nurse interesting . I’ve been a member of the Cavity team for just over a year and I’m loving every minute of it; from the standby days that keep me guessing if I’m going to be called to travelling on the motorway or being stuck on a country road behind a tractor!! It’s the thank yous at the end of the day from both the dental practices and Cavity team that make look forward to my next place of work. So if your thinking of being a locum then do it and do it with the best team – Cavity.”

Dear Rachel, thank you so much for your recommendation and singing our praises and that you feel valued and appreciated not only from Cavity but from the practices you visit as well. Go Team Cavity!
