"I enjoy helping patients conquer their fear and aversion to dental treatments"
Dr Hylton Jenkins Principal Dentist, BSc. BChD. (Pret)
I arrived in Guernsey in 2012, and have quite simply fallen in love with the island the people and the lifestyle. I am delighted to have taken over the Bridge Dental Clinic.
Since graduating from Pretoria University in 1984, I have practiced family oriented general dentistry with special interest in treating nervous and phobic patients, aesthetic dentistry, orthodontics and oral surgery. I have completed extensive post - graduate training and have been a Member of the Clinical Foundation of Orthodontics and Orthopaedics since 1987.
I spent 13 years working with nervous and phobic patients in a referral clinic in Berkshire and enjoy helping patients overcome their fear and aversion to dental procedures. I have been a member of The Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry since 2000.
I enjoy working with children and find it very rewarding to give them a pleasant start a positive attitude to dentistry.
Prior to studying Dentistry, I gained my Bachelor of Science Degree, majoring in Zoology, Botany and Genetics. I have maintained a lifelong interest in wildlife and the natural sciences. I also represented my university at rugby at under 20 level, water polo and athletics.
My interests outside dentistry are nature, fishing, kayaking, water sports, clay pigeon shooting, music, skiing and following world cricket, rugby and athletics.

"I aim to ensure that you are completely satisfied from the moment you make contact with us till the moment you leave"
Anne Jenkins (Richardson) Practice Manager
Since moving here in 2012 I have rekindled a love for this island. As a child I was part of the bucket and spade brigade who came here for summer holidays during the peak of tourism in the 70’s and 80’s. Since arriving, I have thrown myself into island life, working for the Chamber of Commerce. I am delighted that my partner Hylton Jenkins and I have bought the Bridge Dental Clinic and are staying on the island….
With my experience in small business management I have taken on the role as Practice Manager with the enthusiasm that I put into everything that I do. My aim is to ensure that you are completely satisfied from the moment you click on our website or ring the clinic to make an appointment, right through to you leaving with a smile.
Prior to moving to Guernsey I was a development officer for British Rowing, working with over 500 rowing clubs across England to help them grow the sport of rowing. During which time I rowed competitively and wrote the National Learn to Row handbook. My career has mostly been in small business management working with schools, a national bereavement charity and estate agents.
My qualifications include a Ba Hons in Business Studies, PGCE in Sports Management and I am a qualified rowing coach and coach educator.
When not working, I enjoy outdoor sports including kayaking, running and cycling and have recently rediscovered my love for sewing.

Kathryn Le Flock Receptionist & Dental Nurse
I have been at the Bridge Dental Clinic for 10 years having previously worked as nurse at another dental practice on the island. I mainly do reception work, which I really enjoy. I like welcoming patients and ensuring that the clinic runs smoothly. As a qualified nurse I act as a dental nurse when required.
When not at work, I am busy with my two young children. With them both at school, I thought I would have a bit more free time. However I spend so much time ferrying them to and from all their various activities. As a family our favourite holiday is going with friends to Disneyland Paris.
When we moved to Castel, the children got their much wanted golden retriever puppy, which now adds to all the chaos in the Butt household.

Jamy Petit Dental Nurse
I am from Holland and have recently arrived on the Island after living in Austria for the past 6 years.
I've been looking to start a new career and have been very lucky to have the opportunity to join the Bridge Dental Clinic team.
As a trainee dental nurse I hope to develop the skills needed and, in time, qualify to become a dental nurse.
My little daughter is keeping me busy when I am not at work. If I do have some spare time I like to crochet winter beanies and make bracelets. My passion for the mountains will make my holiday destinations easy. Either in winter for skiing or summer for a nice beautiful climb.
