Debbie originally trained as a physiotherapist at Guy’s Hospital, where she and Alun met. When they started T2, she became more closely involved in the running of the business, finally giving up physiotherapy altogether.
She qualified as a dental nurse in 2004 and undertook the dental nurse training for the Bicon Implant System in Boston in 2008. Always keen to keep learning she has gained additional qualifications, including the BDA Certificate in Dental Radiography and is also qualified to take dental impressions. Debbie has a great enthusiasm for promoting her second profession and in 2012 became an examiner for the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses. In 2013 she gained her teaching qualification and has gone on to set up and teach the City & Guilds Dental Nurse Apprenticeship course at City College Plymouth.
Debbie also serves as a Chairperson of "Fitness to Practice" panels for the Nursing and Midwifery Council and the General Dental Council where she is also an Education Associate.
