CK Dental TeamSheryl Krause

Business Director & Practice Manager

Sheryl was Hospital Director at the Nuffield Hospital in Bristol before she left to start her family and joined Cornelius in running CK Dental.

Sheryl’s focus is on patient experience which, surprisingly given that she is married to a dentist, stems from her own nervousness of the dentist. With over 20 years management and team leadership experience within the Health & Wellbeing sector, she knows the importance of putting patients at the heart of what they do. This is why the husband-and-wife team have deliberately created a calm and welcoming reception for families at their new dental clinic.
