Dental Nurse/ Reception
I came from Hungary 11 years ago. I have been a qualified dental nurse since 2020. I continue to develop my dental nursing skills by attending different courses. Currently I am doing a sedation course which enables me to provide comprehensive care for our anxious patients. Having worked in two different dental practices the last 4 years I have managed to work alongside a variety of dentists which has been good for me to see how they all work in their different ways. Out of working hours I enjoy travelling when I get the chance and spending time with my partner. Also I am a big cat lover and I have two at home!
