Former Shetland dental nurse Melanie Inkster struck off over charges

A former Shetland dental nurse who overcharged patients and pocketed the extra money has been struck off.

Melanie Inkster worked at the St Olaf Street practice in Lerwick.

A General Dental Council hearing found she overcharged patients for their treatment, falsely recorded lower payments and took the sum overcharged for her own use between August 2010 and August 2011.

She has until the start of December to appeal the decision.
