Mrs Dawn Walsh
I joined the University of Portsmouth in 2004 as a Dental Nurse Tutor. My current role within UPDA is Principal Lecturer (Quality). I am also course leader for the BSc (Hons) Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy Programme. Prior to joining the University I have been fortunate to work within a variety of roles in NHS, private and corporate dentistry as a Dental Nurse, Treatment Coordinator, Oral Health Educator and Dental Practice Manager. My background and interest in team based dentistry has been developed from the experience gained within a number of large multi-disciplinary teams taking a collaborative approach to patient care. I qualified as a Dental Nurse in 1990 and began my teaching career as a Lecturer in 1993 within Further Education.
