Lydia - Practice Manager
Lydia is our Practice Manager and has been with us since summer 2014. She is a very enthusiastic person who will always welcome you with a smile! She previously was our Receptionist and Treatment Coordinator which was a role she took on very naturally. Lydia has a true passion for amazing customer service and likes to keep the practice upbeat and provides a friendly environment for all who come through the door.
Lydia says “I love working at Greyholme, it’s like we have our own little family. The support we provide each other is second to none. Within my time here I have truly grown as a person (maybe not in height haha) I have challenged myself in ways I never thought possible from completing a 10k mud run to a 7 hour spin bike challenge. I have achieved so much in my time at Greyholme and hope to continue to do so in the future too.”
Lydia lives at home with her Husband Mike and 2 dogs Ronnie and Reggie. In her spare time Lydia likes to go on long walks. She also likes to spend time sampling local restaurants as she has a keen eye for good food and even better wine. She spends lots of time with her close family and friends.

I maintain my knowledge and skills as a dental hygienist by attending regular courses, conferences, webinars, reading journals , research papers.
When I’m not working I spent most of my time looking after the 3 boys in my life – Warren my husband and our 2 active boys Lucas and Ethan.
When I do have time to myself I enjoy swimming, walking, going to spas and enjoying going to pubs to sample the wonderful cuisine out there.
