We have an approachable, friendly and professional team at Cambria who always make patients feel at ease. We are extremely proud of our practice and the services we provide.
The team is led by Rhian Jones and Jeff Hinton who studied together at Cardiff University, School of Dentistry. After several years working and enhancing their skills in practices and hospitals throughout England and Wales, Rhian and Jeff returned to their home town of Swansea to develop Cambria.
We are also supported by a team of highly qualified and experienced oral surgeons who bring specialist skills and knowledge to the practice. This enables Cambria to offer a wide range of treatments and services for our patients.
Our team of nurses have been with us for several years and all of them have, or are working towards, a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ). All of our nurses are focused on providing excellent patient care.
Many of our nurses have completed further tranining and qualifications to allow them to complete additional duties, such as taking X-rays or assisting with patient sedation.
