Meet The Team

Hussain Ahmed

Having graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2003, I have gained much experience working as an NHS dentist both in England and Scotland.

Having been at the helm of Kelvin Smile Centre since 2013 I have been continually supported by an amazingly loyal and experienced dental team to provide a friendly, patient-centred experience to all of our patients.

Julie Watkins

Having started out as a dental nurse and subsequently taking up my current position as practice manager, I have now been part of the Kelvin Smile team for 18 years and I like to think of our friendly team at Kelvin as my second family. During my time here I have cultivated a wonderful relationship with our patients and nothing gives me more pleasure than to make our patients feel at home.

Outside of Kelvin, I love spending time with Hamish, my west highland terrier pup and I am a massive fan of formula 1! aqq

Janice Baxter

I am a graduate of Glasgow University and subsequently obtained a Fellowship in Dental Surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. After graduation, I spent a year working as a House Officer in Oral Surgery & Oral Medicine at Glasgow Dental Hospital before moving to a busy A&E department in Brighton as a Senior House Officer in Oral Maxillofacial Surgery.

Following a year in London as the "in-house" dentist to Price Waterhouse Coopers, I moved back to Glasgow to establish this family dental practice in Maryhill. During this time I havetrained in facial aesthetics and am a skilled practitioner in the provision of anti-wrinkle treatments.

In 2013, as mum to a 2 year-old and newborn twins, I handed over the reins of Kelvin Smile Centre into the very capable hands of Dr Hussein Ahmed. I returned to the practice after maternity leave and continue to care for our lovely patients as an associate dentist.

Roger Marsh

After graduating from the University of Glasgow with commendation in 2015, I furthered my training in Fort William and Glencoe for 3 years where I enjoyed all the challenges of providing dentistry in a remote community, and also gained experience in advanced restorative techniques and dental implant treatment.

I then worked in an NHS dental practice in my home region of Dumfries and Galloway where I studied dentistry in the care home setting, before embarking on a 4 month cycle tour in Chile and Argentina. Now that I have moved back to Glasgow, I am thrilled to be part of the Kelvin Smile team.

When I am not working I will be playing my trombone or exploring the mountains by foot or by bike.

Kirsty McLaughlin

I am the newest member of the team. I qualified as a dental nurse in 1994 but stopped dental nursing in 2003 to start my family and came back to the profession in 2015.

I was fortunate enough to win DCP of the year in 2018 through the Scottish Dental Awards.

I love spending time with my family and if I could I would have a houseful of pets.
