Quote from Kathryn

Kathryn said, “I am so pleased to have been awarded this Honorary Fellowship from the College of General Dentistry. It really should be shared with all the dental teams I have worked with in the past 40 years, as it is they who have, and continue to have, such an influence on my journey as a dental professional.”

Kathryn continued, “My work at HEIW is enabling me to persist in shaping and supporting the dental workforce so they may meet the healthcare needs of the population of Wales whist enjoying a fulfilling career in dentistry.
