Rebecca Lovel

Rebecca Lovel

Head Nurse

In 2015 I began nursing in orthodontics and I discovered I had a genuine interest for the subject. Orthodontics sparks my interest despite enjoying all aspects of dentistry; my study in orthodontics was the most enjoyable. I have studied oral and perioral musculature, growth and development of jaws, primary and secondary dentitions, aetiology of malocclusion, the iatrogenic effects of orthodontic treatment and much more. For my orthodontic nursing course, I chose to do my case studies on an interdisciplinary case of ectopic canines as well as a case study of the barriers encountered by a severely sight impaired patient undergoing orthodontic treatment which gives me a good foundation of knowledge to build upon. I have gained certificates in Impression Taking, Clinical Photography and Dental Radiography. Orthodontics sparks my interest because I’m motivated by problem solving and working towards a solution.

I joined Invisibrace in January 2020 and I enjoy being a friendly face around the practice, assisting in surgery as well as seeing patients for their scans and x-rays. My future goals and aspirations are to further my studies in the coming years and gain my Diploma in Orthodontic Therapy.

In my free time I enjoy visiting new places and trying new cuisines. I am at my happiest curled up with a good book and a warm drink.
