Lorraine joined the practice in August 2010 after moving back from Spain where she worked in a small dental practice as a Translator.  This work led Lorraine to wanting to train to be a dental nurse in the UK.   Lorraine completed her training with Penryn Dental Practice and qualified in 2013 (NVQ Level 3), also qualifying in Oral Health Education, she can plaque disclose and is able to apply Topical Fluoride under prescription.  Lorraine married in 2015, with motherhood following in 2016.  Lorraine briefly moved to York but found the pull of Cornwall to much.  We are so happy that she has returned to Cornwall and is has rejoined us at Penryn Dental Practice.  Lorraine enjoys running, cycling, and is in the process of joining a running club as she would like to run a half marathon in the future (hopefully).

Although we moved to Somerset 7 years ago, we keep coming back for dental treatment. Not always convenient, but well worth the trip.

Claire has my complete confidence and trust as a Dental Practitioner.  I wish to stress what an excellent Dental Surgeon Claire is. She is the best Dentist I have had treatment from. She is caring, kind and a cheerful person  too.  All the staff are excellent at the practice.

A very professional team. I feel well looked after from when I enter the practice to when I leave. Quite possibly the best dental practice in Cornwall!!

I have been very impressed by the service given by the practice. Sean took great care to contact the cardiology team at Treliske for advice when I had to have a tooth removed following heart valve replacement. He goes to great pains to explain the options available and to give one time to make decisions.


I’m a very nervous dental patient but Donal O’Halloran really put me at ease, so much so that I was not at all anxious when it came to him actually examining my teeth.
