Dr Ruth Mansell was born and raised in Northern Ireland. She moved to the UK to study dentistry and she graduated from Cardiff University, Wales in 2010. She completed her Dental Foundation Training in Exeter, Co Devon. Her passion for oral surgery and working with anxious patients took her to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. Ruth spent a year there working with the Oral and Maxillofacial team, increasing her skills in difficult extractions, biopsies, intravenous sedation, general anaesthetics, minor and major facial trauma and oncology cases. During this year she completed her Diploma with the Joint Dental Faculties, Royal College of Surgeons England.
Ruth and her husband decided to make the move out to Australia and have never looked back. Ruth adores the climate here, the beautiful coastlines and nearby cities. She loves to surf and kayak in her spare time and has recently completed her Open Water Dive Course.
