Claire Lillico-Thompson

Claire has worked in the dental industry for over 8 years and has a way with children. Her main focus is to make your child’s visit to our practice a positive and fun filled experience.

Clair has a calm, friendly and bubbly personality. Don’t be surprised if you find that your child does not want to go home at the end of the dental appointment because they are in the middle of a story with Claire.

As patient educator she will go through oral hygiene instructions, brushing technicians and dental tips with you and your children.

Outside of work Claire loves to hang out with family and friends and her pet Chester!
