About Kilnlane Dental

St Helens hygienist Jo Rayka

Jo Rayka EDH (L’pool). GDC reg no 6292

Jo qualified with a Diploma in Dental Hygiene at Liverpool Dental University in 2003.

Following several dental hygiene posts, in both NHS and private practice, she rejoined Kiln Lane in 2005 after previously working here as a nurse.

Jo sees her role as not only treating gum disease but helping to prevent it by giving patients the tips, tools and techniques they need to achieve and maintain a healthy smile. She has a great feeling of satisfaction when she sees patients who attend for maintenance appointments smiling, and confident in doing so, especially when they first attended with advanced periodontal conditions. This means that the treatment she has provided for them coupled with the adoption of a good oral hygiene routine at home has stabilised the disease.

By working alongside general practitioners, implantologists and periodontists, she has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in the treatment of periodontal disease. Following qualification Jo has worked hard to develop her skills so that she keeps abreast of new advances and techniques as they arise. Amongst other things, she has had training and has gained experience in the use of Photodynamic Therapy (P.D.T.) with the Periowave laser along with other adjuctive therapies.

When she is not working she loves to spend time with her husband and their three young children. Weekends are normally spent day-tripping with their Staffies in tow whilst holidays are regularly taken in Romania - her husband's home country.
