Welcome to our third meet the team and this time’s team member is Lynn Sloss. Lynn is married to Donald, last time’s “Meet the Team” and as our Business Manager is usually to be found in our upstairs office although she does appear at the front desk on occasion.
“What do I love about my job? That’s easy , the team I work with, who are a fantastic bunch of people, and the fact that through them we can give patients, particularly the young and the fearful, a fantastic dental experience and the smile they deserve. Growing up I had some fairly painful and not overly sympathetic visits to the dentist. I really didn’t like my smile and was very self conscious of it and so to work with a team who believe in doing the best for the patient in the most caring and professional manner is amazing. Donald has been my dentist since he was a dental student- I do feel sorry for him sometimes but not enough to change dentist- and is responsible for changing my opinion of dentists and for giving me my smile back.
Away from work I love spending time with family and our dogs, am a keen photographer and enjoy all sorts of crafts. ”
Cats or dogs: Definitely dogs- apologies to all cat lovers out there. It’s probably more of a size thing than anything, I’m not very coordinated and tend to stand on or fall over smaller animals, probably explains our 2 Newfoundlands and the Pyrenean/Leonberger cross that we have.
What would your superhero power be? Not sure it’s superhero but I’d quite like to be like Samantha in Bewitched who could do the housework by wiggling her nose.
If I had an extra hour a day I’d spend it: doing something fun- definitely not doing the housework!
