Sophie Loakes

Dental Nurse

Hello! I’m Sophie, one of the dental nurses here at The Gallery. I started my dental nurse training in 2013, began working at The Gallery in late 2014, and passed my final exams (first time!) in Spring 2016. I’ve been fascinated with dentistry since childhood, as I started coming here to see Julie when I was 3! I spend most of my time at the practice assisting Robin, which I really enjoy, as he does a lot of complex work, and is great at treating very nervous patients. It’s so wonderful, being able to work with the very people who inspired me as a child. All the staff members here are lovely, so friendly and welcoming, I felt like part of the family on my very first day!

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, including my little poodle/bichon frise cross, Ted. I’m a big reader, in fact, I’ve donated a lot of books to the practice library! I also enjoy binge watching TV series’, eating out, and city breaks. I’ve been lucky enough to visit both New York city and Paris in the past year, and I’m hoping to visit other European cities such as Amsterdam, Venice, and Prague in the near future!
