After gaining a national diploma in child care, I decided that working with children and the public was the career for me. I Joined the Oradi Dental Group in 2005 as both a dental nurse and receptionist. I became a fully qualified dental nurse in March 2008 after gaining my NVQ level 3 in oral health. I have a special interest in cosmetic dentistry and have attended a course in London which has given me great confidence in assisting complex ‘smile makeover’ treatments. I am also an orthodontic nurse at the practice which gives me the opportunity to work more with children. My nursing skills have extended to being able to take radiographs and impressions.
