Hayley Phelan
Hayley Phelan

Practice Manager

GDC NO 262111

Hayley began her career at Cambridge Dental in 2012, as a receptionist. She quickly became intrigued by the medical aspect of dentistry, and so trained to become a Dental Nurse. She revels in any opportunity to expand her knowledge, and gained her qualification with an in-depth understanding of the range of treatments and procedures available.

After a spell as a Dental Nurse, Hayley returned to her passion for working with people. She now oversees the day-to-day running of reception, while acting as a treatment coordinator for patients. Her experience as a Dental Nurse has left her with extensive, detailed knowledge of the treatment options available, which allows her to offer expert advice and guidance to patients. Hayley’s priority is to make every patient feel comfortable, relaxed and understood. She’ll help you to pinpoint your unique dental needs and goals, and will be there to support you throughout your treatment, answering any questions you may have along the way.

In her spare time, Hayley likes to take long walks with her partner and their gorgeous Cockapoo Rudy. She also enjoys running and takes part in charity races throughout the year.
