About Yasmin Allen:
After training as a dentist at Liverpool University in 2010, Yasmin was inspired to find out more about public health and the workings of the NHS. She has worked in general practice, secondary care, community services and public health, and in organisations including PHE, HEE, Local Authority, CCG, IUC and within an STP.
Her most recent projects include working with the North Central London STP, within urgent dental care, being part of a project team reviewing Mental Health LTP plans, developing factsheets for pharmacists on common dental problems, and on Mouth Care Matters – an initiative to improve oral health in care homes and hospitals.
In her spare time Yasmin enjoys drumming, snowboarding and anything outdoors. She has recently developed a travelogue video channel and is using her newly developed filming, editing and presenting skills to produce videos to illustrate the benefits of digital dentistry.
