Karolyn Quintal

Dental Nurse 134609

CDG Start Date: November 1999, I’m the longest serving member of the team!

Secondary School: Grainville.


Dental Nursing: I qualified in 2000

Lived off-island? If so where: No I’m Jersey born and bred.

Partner/children: Yes my husband Darren, we’ve been together 15 years and married for 7. We have a little boy named Theo who is 1 and two cats called Mini and Marvin.

Have you had any dental treatment? If so, what? I had my teeth whitened before my wedding. When I was about 7 or 8 I had orthodontic treatment and so I know how our patients feel wearing their braces.

Favourite thing about working at CDG: All the lovely ladies and getting to know the patients. I’ve worked with Jonathan for over 14 years so he can’t be too bad eh?

Dental goals for the year: After having Theo I’ve been a little slack on my oral hygiene routine so getting back to using my Tepes regularly and electric toothbrush.

Favourite band: Mcfly 100%. Just McFly, definitely not McBusted! Danny’s my fave obviously and I’ve seen them live four times! Darren’s been with me for three of them and pretends he doesn’t like them but I know he does. He’s a secret fan!

Interesting hobby: I really love baking cakes. Wedding and birthday cakes and the like but my kitchen is teeny so I haven’t baked for a while. I also like going swimming with Theo. He loves it and wants to swim off and go it alone now though!

Strictly or The X Factor? The X Factor. I didn’t actually like anyone this year to be honest though! I used to like Nicole Scherzinger and I do like Simon- he talks sense…most of the time!

Perfect job? Probably having my own cattery. A posh holiday home for cats! I’d like a cat to pamper that likes eating posh food, not just biscuits like mine do!

Favourite Parish: St Helier. I live and work there and all the shops are there too.

Desert Island Essential: Darren obviously and chocolate.

Sweet or savoury? Sweet. Cakes, chocolate, ice cream, biscuits…anything! Trying to be good on my diet is tough at the moment.

What’s your bedtime? 10:30, sometimes 11 if there’s something good on TV.

Ever broken a bone? No, I’m far too boring to do anything like that!

Favourite film? ‘Team America: World Police’. I just love it. Makes me laugh every time.

Celebrity crush: Danny from McFly.

Perfect Holiday: Anywhere in Greece. We’ve been there lots. I like going for a nice meal in the evening, drinks and a wander around the shops.

What word would people use to describe you? Quiet, because I am. I like to take things in and listen, then get on with the job instead of talking!

< Back to Meet the Team


  • 'It’s not a case of not affording to go, you just can't afford not to go. They make going to the dentist pleasurable.'

  • 'All of the staff are really kind and friendly and in particular, I must thank Jonathan Wood for all the time and hard work he has put in to my teeth. I am very glad that I came here and would definitely recommend it to others.'

  • 'I've had such a great experience. Everything was explained to me clearly and in a way I would understand. I feel as though I have had much more for my money and time compared to other dentists I have been to.'

  • 'I feel like my teeth are 100% better than they were before. I am very pleased. It’s like a weight off my mind. I didn’t know how conscious I was and so now having had the treatment, it has given me that little bit more confidence to smile freely without thinking of my teeth.'

  • Meeting and being treated by Jonathan Wood changed my life. Jonathan was recommended to me by a friend who told me that she was sure he could help me. Over the years I had investigated having my bite corrected and was told the same thing again and again. My bite was difficult to fix. One dentist told me that teeth would need to be removed and even then, he could not guarantee that the treatment would be successful stating that it was highly probable the teeth and jaw would shift back to their original starting point. There was no jaw surgery or extraction of teeth. Eighteen months later the braces came off and I felt like a new person both physically and emotionally. I'm not sure you can put a price on what I have gained. I will be eternally grateful to Jonathan, his wonderful assistants, and the friendly, warm team at the Cosmetic Dental Group.

  • 'I’d just like to say how much I enjoy knowing I’m coming to the practice because when I come, I’m received right royally really. It’s a case of ‘how are you’ and a smile, the girls take my coat and it’s just so lovely. When you visit everybody is so responsive and wanting you to enjoy your session.'

  • 'The staff there are fabulous and worked hard to accommodate my desire to get my teeth finished before going on holiday. I would definitely recommend this practice, as I now feel confident in my smile! Thank you for being so brilliant, friendly and accommodating.'

  • 'Two words but packed with more gratitude than you will ever know….thank you.'

  • 'I now have a smile that people comment on all the time and am more than happy with all the treatment I received. I would recommend the practice to anyone.'

  • 'The Dental Health Plan at the practice has also been really good for me as it’s a great way of having your regular appointments paid for so you don’t have to think about it. You pay for the plan monthly, which is very reasonable and obviously for that you are getting your two examinations and two hygiene visits.'

  • 'Straight teeth, better pronunciation, and a fuller lip. Jonathan explained everything as we went along, and the before and after photos were gob smacking - what a difference!'

  • 'Having a lovely white smile projects a really healthy, attractive image that creates a positive response from everyone. I am really thrilled with the results and will be more than happy to recommend The Cosmetic Dental Group to my friends and clients. They have a really good reputation so I know they will be in good hands.'

  • 'The Cosmetic Dental Group are an absolute gem! Always friendly and helpful, the surgery is a pleasure to attend.'

  • 'CDG comes highly recommended, the entire team are professional, friendly and know their stuff. Well worth a visit.'

  • 'Katie is always punctual, well turned out, she greets you with an amazing smile and makes you feel so at ease. She is so professional and courteous and clearly is incredibly knowledgeable about all areas of dental hygiene. She is very thorough yet efficient at the same time.'

  • 'I am extremely pleased with the speed and quality of the work I have had from Jonathan Wood- a complete transformation with no pain at all.'

  • 'As my dental appointment approached I was awash with trepidation. I needn’t have worried as the wonderful, welcoming staff and practitioners made my visit a dental delight! My dreaded visit turned out to be positive, painless and palatable! So much so, I’m paying them another visit in 6 months time.'

  • I could not recommend the Cosmetic Dental Group enough! They have been fantastic 👌 I was very nervous at first due to a previous experience, however, Caroline and the team have been fantastic and made this process a lot easier than I ever thought it would be. I don’t think I showed just how happy I was with my teeth when I left each time as in honesty I had never known what good looks like. However the amount others have noticed and said how good they look is a complement to the great job they have done and now I do know what good looks like! It has helped others I know to sign up to sort their teeth and I will continue my treatment with the plan going forward having seen the benefits and taken in the advice I have been given.

  • 'Just a short note of thanks for dealing personally with my problem. I felt so much better within a day and want you to know that I do appreciate the time taken and 'gentle' approach.'

  • 'Having undergone quite major dentistry over the past year, I can highly recommend The Cosmetic Dental Group.'

  • 'All the staff at The Cosmetic Dental Group are very friendly and professional. The dental work I needed has been completed by Dr Willetts, and I am very pleased with the result. The cost was a lot less than I had originally been quoted, and no need for a visiting Consultant as Dr Willetts had the necessary expertise.'

  • 'If I were to sum up the practice I would say patient-focused, outstanding in its’ field and one which just gets it right.'
