Our Administration Team
Ruth is our Practice Manager, and heart and soul of NMP. She has been a Practice Manager for 2 very busy Medical Clinics at Chullora and West Ryde, so she is used to dealing with deadlines and stress!! If you have any problems, Ruth is the person to deal with, as she often says ‘ the buck stops with me’!
Samantha is our head receptionist. She has been with us since 2013, after a 12 month hiatus from being a Practice Manager at a busy inner west Dental Practice. Samantha has a great rapport with our patients and her sunny disposition always makes our reception area a pleasant place to be!!
Helen recently joined our team, with extensive medical reception experience, she has slotted in nicely to the sometimes chaotic front reception area. A very proud grandmother, she delights in all the small children ( and big children) that come into our clinic.
