Mandi Beesley, Practice Manager

mandiMandi Beesley is the Practice Manager at Sale Dental Spa.

“I have come from a background of Dental Nursing and have been in the profession for the past 13 years, working in NHS, Private and Orthodontic practices in Manchester and Cheshire. I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of my work and given my varied history in the profession, I have been lucky enough to see a few different sides of the Dental world. The patient journey to me, is the most important part of dentistry, from the initial consultation, where a plan is formulated for treatment, to the final day of treatment when the smile is perfected, every step is as important to me as the day when a patient gets the smile they have been waiting for. My role at Sale Dental is to ensure that all of our patients have a professional and positive end to end experience. I strive to meet patient’s objectives and deliver the highest possible standards of care with the help of my team.

In my spare time outside of work, I’m an avid reader, personal favourite authors would include – John Connolly, Martina Cole and Leslie Pearce. I enjoy travel and the outdoors, spending time with family and friends, finally, taking the two Jack Russell’s I have out for long walks – weather permitting!”
