So many articles have been written about dental nurses, their career journeys, their further education and their professional achievements. They are all very inspiring and we do need that.
I left school at eighteen, not knowing which career path to take. All I knew was that I wanted to go into a field that involved working with people. I took a receptionist job at a local dental practice, and it was then that I realised I wanted to pursue a career in dentistry. I enjoyed the patient interaction and seeing how dentistry can have a huge impact on people’s lives. After a couple of years of working on reception, I was given the opportunity to begin a dental nursing course and take a more hands-on approach.
