What is your position at Meltham Dental Care?

I am a qualified dental nurse here at Meltham Dental Care, I started out as a trainee in 2010 and went on to complete my NVQ level 3 in dental nursing at Wakefield college. I qualified in 2011 and have been working for Practice principal Dr Bal Dhesi ever since.

You will usually find me in surgery 2 working alongside Dr Jessica Abiagom. As well as carrying out my day to day dental nurse duties I also have my own extra responsibilities, some of these include: Stock controller, Deputy Decontamination Lead , Surgery Inspector and to ensure that the COSHH file is correct and up to date. To carry out these extra duties I have to attend regular courses, this is to ensure my knowledge is to the highest standard.

What aspects of your job do you find the most enjoyable?

I enjoy seeing how dental treatment can improve patients confidence in themselves. Particularly cosmetic treatment, some of the transformations are amazing. Orthodontic cases I find most interesting, seeing a patients treatment from start to finish is very rewarding.

I have worked at Meltham Dental Care for 4 years now. Previous to this I worked in a busy town salon as a colour technician for 4 years.

I love going out with friends and family when I can, shopping, boogieing and having a good gossip. I love spending time with my boyfriend Tom, and taking our miniature sausage dog slinky.
