Meet Ruth Boot
Dip. Dental Hygiene (Cardiff) 1988
GDC No. 3479
After graduating from University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, Ruth returned home to West Yorkshire to work part-time in the Community Dental Service (Leeds) working with children and part-time in General Dental Practice in Halifax, working predominantly in the NHS.
After having her daughter, she went on to work part-time in order to combine work with being a mum.
As her daughter was growing up Ruth worked full-time for 17 years in the private sector and recently joined Leeds City Dentalcare June 2022 part-time, giving her chance to enjoy activities outside work and still enjoy being a member of the dental team.
Ruth gets a great sense of achievement when “making a difference” by educating and motivating patients in order to improve their oral hygiene and maintain a healthy mouth.
Outside work she enjoys entertaining friends, spending time with her family (not forgetting her cat, Tilly) as well as good food and drink, winter skiing holidays and countryside walks.
