Dentistry podcast – Christina Chatfield on 12 months of COVID-19


Christina Chatfield opens up about her own journey over the last 12 months and what this has meant for her and her business.

Last April, Christina Chatfield was doing all she could to save her Brighton-based practice, Dental Health Spa.

We recorded a podcast at the time where she spoke about the fight for the survival of her business: ‘I think it’s hard to describe except it’s emotionally there all the time.’

Now, we chat to her one year on to see how she’s handled the last 12 months.

‘It’s really hard to put into words how I feel because I’ve got very mixed emotions,’ she said.

‘I have mixed emotions as a professional, mixed emotions as a person, mixed emotions as a mum and mixed emotions as a caring person. To look at fellow colleagues and friends who have businesses, patients who are still not working, other colleagues who are still not working.

‘As a realist, I believe we are going to be living with COVID for a very long time. For me, as a business, I really thought I was going to lose it all.’
