MFDS RCS Ed.
Dr Rachel Goggins BDS
Rachel was a past pupil of The Sacred Heart school here in Westport and completing her work experience in this very practice. She graduated from The University of Manchester with a BDS qualification in 2007. She then went on to obtain The Diploma of The Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (MFDS RCS Ed.) in 2011. In 2012 she obtained a Diploma in Facilitated Learning in Dental Practice with The University College of Lancaster (UCLAN). This was further supplemented by a Dental Foundation Trainee Trainer’s Programme with the Health Education North East (HENE) in 2014. This allowed Rachel to train and educate newly qualified dentists in practice bridging the gap from university into general practice. She enjoyed working in general practice in Cheshire and the Lake District for the last 10 years but was delighted to have the opportunity to move back to Westport and join Westport Dental Centre in the summer of 2017.
