Karolyn QuintalDental 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!
