Dr Lynda Heath


After qualification, I completed a year as a Vocational Trainee and following this worked as a locum dentist in the Community Dental Service for a short while. I then took on an associate position that included a part-time clinical assistant role in Oral Surgery. My career has mainly been in general practice, including 22 years of joint practice ownership with my husband. We sold our practice in January 2020 and I stayed on as an associate there until January 2022. I began my current role as Clinical Teaching Fellow at Leeds Dental Institute in June 2021.
