Nicola Massey, Dental Nurse and Beauty Therapist
(GDC No. 171186)
I have been a Dental Nurse since the year 2007. I studied for my NVQ Level 3 in Oral Health Care before continuing on to gain my NVQ Level 4 in Dental Radiography. However, I’m different to other dental nurses. I really liked the idea of helping people to look and feel great, so after studying for two years I qualified as a Beauty Therapist, gaining a National Diploma in Beauty Therapy Sciences in June 2013, achieving a double distinction.
I’m equally as comfortable providing advice on the latest facial treatments as I am interacting with patients who are undergoing cosmetic dental treatments. My nursing duties also include making sure the surgery is in immaculate condition for each patient, upholding optimal levels of cross-infection. I am also available to chat to patients about all the different facial and dental procedures that Changing Faces® have to offer.
Since gaining my beauty qualification I have taken a particular interest in skincare and have expanded my knowledge on different skincare systems, particularly the brands used within our clinic. I have trained in the OBAGI® skin systems and in the Blue Peel Radiance as well as soon bringing the SKINCEUTICALS product range to our clinic. As well as gaining make-up application experience on my beauty therapy course, I am fully trained in our Youngblood make-up range for correct application as well as colour matching the products to your skin tone and needs.
I am a people-person, which means I love to chat and try my hardest to ease patients’ minds– especially those who are nervous about their treatment.
