We are looking to build up long-term commercial relationships with Dental Practices that will benefit both parties. 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 DBS checks and training courses! At Cavity we believe that working in the dental surgery is about a professional career choice not just a job.

While I was a Practice Manager, there were several occasions when the pressure was on due to staff illness, holiday entitlement, and maternity leave. The issue probably sounds very familiar? So this brings us to the question; how can you run an efficient practice, keep clients happy and of course, the bank manager?
With my background, I aimed to redress this issue and so set up an agency specifically geared up for the dental industry. I have built up a loyal workforce of Dental Nurses and Dental Receptionists to fill the gap. Combine that with my personal experience as a Practice Manager, and you may find your staffing pains go away!
Cavity was delighted to be awarded the prestigious Investors in People Award – Bronze in April 2010, demonstrating our commitment to our continuous effort to provide a top quality service to our clients.
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 Sharon’s Personal Assistant, so my main responsibility is to look after the boss!
Outside of work I am a mum to two, I have a little boy who is now not so little at 15 years old and a 3 year old who keeps me on my toes. Most of my time is spent taking my son to and from his football commitments, which I love as I am a huge football fan anyway. And running my daughter to and from ballet classes. I also like to keep fit myself and enjoy running and boxing.

'I have worked along side Sharon for many years and have seen the company flourish from a small start up company to a well established and successful business.' Janine
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’.

My career in the dental industry started in 2006 as a receptionist. I then decided to complete my dental nurse training and progressed from senior nurse to Practice Manager of a busy NHS practice in Cheshire within a few years.
I joined Cavity in 2015 as a locum nurse in Cheshire and flourished. The role provided me with the challenge and rewards I desired on a daily basis. Becoming Area Manager for the North West has been amazing and rewarding, showing that hard work and determination pays off.
I have recently become the On Call Manager and I am looking forward to my new challenge.
I have a young family so life is never quiet! But when I do get some “me time” I like to go to the gym, meet up with friends and bake cakes (I make a great lemon drizzle cake).

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.
I have been with Cavity for over 13 years now, joining the company in 2006 after gaining my nursing qualification in 2003! I started as a locum nurse and have worked my way up to Area Manager for the Oxford, Bucks, & Northants areas.
I love my job but I also enjoy my down time too! I enjoy eating out with friends and generally just relaxing.

'I started out with Cavity as a locum dental nurse 12 years ago. I have since progressed to become part of the management team.' Nicola
I’ve worked in the dental industry since 1993 as a receptionist, dental nurse and Practice Manager whilst following my husband around in his military career. We are now free from military life and settled in the Wiltshire area. I’ve been with Cavity Dental Staff since 2012 as an Area Manager and have built up a successful area with the help of the Head Office team and my fabulous nursing team.
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.
In my spare time (not that I get enough) I enjoy gardening and I enjoy whenever possible going camping weather permitting.

'The favourite part of my job is being able to help out practices in need of staffing cover and hearing their excellent feedback on how easy it was to have one of our Cavity locums.' Sara
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’m pretty easy going (a trait of being a true Devonian) and up for most things. I love to spend time with my family and friends. In my spare time I ride horses and have represented GB twice and England once. If I am not doing any of the above then you will find me behind the wheel of a 32 tonne vehicle, I took my HGV when I was 19 and love driving the lorry, I always get a cheeky grin off the truckers when I pull up in a truck stop as I am only 5’2ft and look pretty young.
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 joined Cavity in 2017 as a Bookings Coordinator temporarily while I had been looking for a marketing role. I loved Cavity sooooo much I decided to stay and soon, my role expanded as the opportunity to assist with the management of and content creation for our social media arose. I have since completed a certificate in Digital Marketing and continue to develop my skills every day. I have a strong passion for creating content that is brand focused, sharing trending and relevant content and ensuring that our staff, our clients and anyone interested in Cavity are always in mind.
When I’m not wearing my marketing hat, I’m painting, crafting, DIY’ing or gardening.

I joined Cavity as a Locum Dental Nurse in 2017. Prior to joining Cavity, I worked as a Dental Nurse for 13 years for both Private and Corporate companies. I trained as an Implant Nurse however would of much preferred Orthodontic Nursing.
Whilst working for Cavity, I have had the time to study for a Degree in Counselling Theory & Practice and a CIPD Diploma in Human Resource Practice, two areas which I have always been extremely interested in studying.
I have been delighted to accept the Head of Health & Wellbeing role within the Cavity team and work towards creating an open and transparent culture around Health & Wellbeing within the company.
When I am not working, I am usually trying to find a quiet space to rest my mind – once I have done that, I love to spend time with friends and family, go swimming and make future holiday plans with my husband Chris.
Carla started working with us in 2014 as our only bookings coordinator and we have since then expanded the team to include: Carla, Seb, Rochelle, Lauren, Holly, Fran, Natalie, Sarah, Christine, Carey, Kellie & Kate.
Our bookings team have experience in the dental industry; nurses, hygienist and receptionists, so fully understand the pressures that practices are under when regular staff go off leaving teams short staffed!

'I love the hustle and bustle of the Cavity office, it's full of laughter, big personalities and friendly faces.' Carla
Megan: I have been working for Cavity since 2011, I joined not long after I had finished my A-Levels; I joined Cavity as an Admin Assistant and have gradually been given more and more responsibility. I am now the Office Manager overseeing the day to day running of the office and managing the whole office team which is always expanding!
In my spare time I enjoy socialising with friends and family, eating out and shopping. I was a synchronised swimmer for 10 years but stopped to focus on my A-levels, I now enjoy long walks instead, in particular down by the coast.
The Admin team consists of: Megan, Shelley & Vicki
Janet: I have been with Cavity since 2015, as Accounts Manager, overseeing everything accounts related. Having spent 12 years as Lettings Account Manager in Caversham, chasing tenants for rent, paying landlords etc, I felt I needed a change. In my younger years I was a qualified Dental Nurse and thought I could match up both my previous roles to find my ideal job.
I enjoy spending my days off with my Grandson, who is my pride and joy, walking or running (when I feel energetic) with my big black lab and putting my feet up with a great book, Sophie Kinsella being one of my favourite authors.
Our accounts team consist of Claire, Lucy, Janet, Ros, James & Emily.
