Megan qualified from the University of Portsmouth in 2010 with a BSc degree in Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy. She has since developed her own dental brand #LIVETOSMILE, where by she utilises social media and online marketing to attract new patients, focusing on her teeth whitening treatments, a part of dentistry she has discovered a real passion for.

#LIVETOSMILE has since been introduced into three different dental practices one being on the famous Harley Street in London. Subsequently Megan was asked by the global brand Philips to represent them as a key opinion leader. Megan has since been working closely with Philips on many projects including helping to raise awareness of the issues surrounding illegal teeth whitening which has included featuring in documentaries with the BBC, press and much more. Megan now runs whitening training courses in association with Philips for DH&DT’s, helping to uplift and inspire them to elevate their careers within dentistry.
