Admin & Reception

Ruth Johnson

Practice Manager

My main role is to ensure that the practice delivers the highest standard of care to every patient, to maintain the efficient running of the practice and to develop and sustain a proficient team.

I ensure that all non-clinical aspects of the practice are managed, so that the clinicians are free to concentrate on their patients.

  • BTEC Level 4 Diploma in Dental Practice Management
  • Oral Health Education Certificate
  • Dental Surgery Assistant National Certificate
  • GDC 147879

I began dental nursing in Stirling in 1989, qualifying from Edinburgh’s Telford College in 1991.

Having worked in NHS Practice, Private Practice and with the East Berkshire Community Dental Service, I have had the opportunity to work with some inspiring and wonderful colleagues and patients, who have taught me a lot over the years.

Practice Management has been my professional area for the last seven years.

I was delighted to join City Bridge Dental as Practice Manager in August 2016. It is pleasure working alongside such highly skilled dedicated professionals, and where patient care is paramount.

Outside City Bridge I enjoy spending time with my partner, three children, golden retriever, family and friends.

In my spare time, I run a ladies online accessory store with a good friend, we have a lot of fun!  I also like to kayak and paddle board when I get the chance.  I love live music too.

Rebecca Cox

Receptionist

I am one of two receptionists at City Bridge.

I assist in booking out the diaries and seeing to our patients.

I enjoy meeting new patients and building relationships with all new and present patients. I love being able to provide a good start and end to the appointment with a friendly smile.

Since being at City Bridge, I have done an NVQ in business administration, and with the help from my colleagues, I have become much more confident when talking to new people.

In my spare time, I love music and attending the theatre. I also volunteer throughout the year for various charities, from collecting money to bungee jumping and skydiving.
