She Holds The General Surgical FRCS (Fellow Of The Royal College Of Surgeons), The Specialty FRCS Exam For Oral And Maxillofacial Surgery FRCS (OMFS) And Has The Qualification Of Fellow Of Dental Surgery (FDS RCS). At The Heart Of Her Belief Is That Facial Appearance Matters. “Whether We Like It Or Not Most Of Us Make Initial Judgments About People Within The First Few Seconds Of Meeting Them Based On Their Appearance. A Person May Be Born With A Facial Deformity Or May Acquire One Either Through Trauma Or Cancer. Perceived Negative Changes May Occur Simply Through The Normal Aging Process. A Person May Have A Face That Is Not One That Represents The Person They Are Inside. Improvement And Change In A Facial Appearance Can Have A Profound Effect On A Person’s Life.” Helen Undertakes Aesthetic/Cosmetic Surgery To Rejuvenate The Face. She Is Also Happy To Undertake Oral Surgery Procedures At Parkside Hospital Including Removal Of Impacted Teeth And Exposing And Bonding Of Impacted Teeth.
