Our team comprises of Asha Kashyap the lead dentist well supported by practice manager and senior dental nurse Angela Lawrie, dental nurses Marta Kaminska and Michal Olszewski. Our hygienist therapist Kathleen Broughton helps patients to look after their gums and teeth by providing dental hygiene and therapy services.
Our regular staff are all fully registered with General Dental Council and we strictly adhere to the GDC Standards for Dental Professionals.
I qualified in 2000 with distinction and honors from Mangalore University, India and worked for few years in general practice. I completed the Statutory Examination ORE by General Dental Council UK in 2008 and attained post graduate qualifications Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery(MFDS) of Royal College Glasgow in 2010 and Membership of General Dental Practitioners (MFGDP) of Royal College England in 2011.
I worked as an associate in various practices during which period I gained wealth of experience in general dental practice dealing with patients of all ages and different treatment needs.
I realised my dream of owning my practice in 2012 when I bought well established dental practice on 63 Causeyside Street, Paisley and renamed it as Finesse Dental Care. I enjoy my role as owner of the practice as this has given me a wonderful opportunity not just to broaden my clinical skills but to develop the administration and business skills of dentistry. My aim is to provide excellent dental care to our patients and I and my team are dedicated to providing highest degree of patient comfort. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry but have to admit my special interests are minimally invasive dentistry, endodontics and cosmetic dentistry. I regularly attend post graduate courses to keep up with the constantly evolving techniques and materials in dentistry. I have recently completed Advanced Restorative Course where I learnt smile design, occlusion, dental photography amongst other topics in great detail and very eager to apply the newly acquired skills into practice. I have even completed the Longitudinal Endodontics Course which has given me more confidence in dealing with complex root canal treatment cases.
I strongly believe and advocate preventive dentistry as it is the cornerstone for good oral health.
Outwith dentistry, I like cooking for my family and friends, travelling abroad and visiting exotic places with my husband and our two daughters.
B Sc Oral Health Science Glasgow Caledonian University
My name is Kathleen and I am the dental hygienist/therapist at Finesse Dental Care. I graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2015 with a BSc degree in Oral Health Sciences. Before that I worked as a Dental Technician for 4 years in a dental laboratory.
My role at Finesse Dental Care is to help patients achieve and maintain a good standard of oral hygiene which in turn can help to prevent conditions such as gum disease and dental decay. Primarily, I will carry out treatments such as scaling and polishing to clean your teeth and gums although I am also trained in providing other types of treatment such as protective sealants, fillings and children’s extractions.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, hillwalking with my golden retriever called Clyde and holidaying with my husband.
