Michelle Hollywood-Russell

Treatment Clinic Coordinator142216

Staff name: Michelle Hollywood-Russell

Position: Treatment Clinic Coordinator

CDG Start Date: 10 years ago.

Secondary School: Beaulieu Convent

Qualifications:

Nursing in 2007

Child and Family Studies from Leeds University in 2002. The course was wide-ranging and encompassed Psychology, Sociology and History of Childhood. I specifically focussed on ‘Special Needs’ and later worked in that area.

Lived off-island? If so where: When studying at Leeds I lived in Wakefield and Leeds. Then when I went travelling with Andy we travelled around lots of places; Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, The Cook Islands and Hawaii. We really fell in love with Hawaii on our trip and went back there for our honeymoon.

Partner/children: Andy is my husband and we’ve been together 13 years. We have 2 lovely boys, Harley who will be 5 in November and Reegan who will be 2 in October.

Have you had any dental treatment at the practice? If so, what? I have regular 3 monthly hygiene appointments to keep on top of things, with whichever hygienist is free as they are so busy! I also had a couple of my amalgam fillings removed by Caroline who replaced them with nice white fillings- no anaesthetic needed!

Favourite thing about working at CDG: I would have to say the friendly environment, it’s so nice to work here. It’s great to be part of a team who get along well. I like the banter and support we give each other.

Dental goals for the year: To use my tepee brushes every day without fail!

Favourite band: I’m a big lover of music but rock music in particular. Biffy Clyro and The Foo Fighters are up there as my faves. Our household is always full of music, we like it loud and dance a lot! The boys absolutely love dancing around the kitchen to all sorts of music. The Moana soundtrack is their favourite of recent times.

Interesting hobby: I used to play lots of tennis and I represented the island both at junior and senior level. I also took part in the island games a couple of times, but as I got older my interests changed, and I then went off to university.

Tennis aside, I like art and making things which we tend to do a lot with Harley. My idea of peace is good music and a colouring book I have an enchanted garden colouring book which is very intricate.

Do you live with anyone? I am outnumbered and live with 3 boys, Andy, Harley and Reegan

Strictly or the X Factor? I think Strictly. It’s usually pretty entertaining. I haven’t watched the X Factor for a very long time. I’m not really into those types of shows anymore though.

Perfect job? I’d love to create and sell arty things for living- making things is when I’m at my most peaceful and it’s what I enjoy doing most, short of watching live music for a living…

Favourite Parish: Probably St Brelade. It’s a place where Andy and I have spent lots of time. Andy proposed to me on the beach between Ouaisne and St Brelade. It’s the best beach on the island!

Desert Island Essential: sunscreen and water

Sweet or savoury? I’m partial to sweet and savoury. I do have a sweet tooth but it depends on my mood. Sticky toffee pudding, brownies or a good steak.

What’s your bedtime? No later than 10.30, 10 is the ideal.

Ever broken a bone? Nope, not yet and I hope it doesn’t happen.

Favourite film? ‘The Goonies’, it reminds me of childhood and friends, I love it!

Celebrity crush: I’ve always loved Brandon Flowers from the Killers- I’m a sucker for a lead singer who’s a bit quirky and charismatic.

Perfect Holiday: Somewhere in the sun, cocktails and a good pool. I like to relax and to get some shopping in too.

What word would people use to describe you? I had to ask my friends for advice on this one and this one came up.….kind!

PATIENT FEEDBACK

  • '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.'

  • '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 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 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.'

  • '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.'

  • '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.'

  • '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.'

  • '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.'

  • '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.'

  • '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.'

  • '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.'

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

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

  • '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.'

  • 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.

  • '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.'

  • '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.'

  • '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!'

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

  • 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.
