TAYLA – Dental Assistant

What made you interested in dentistry?

I first became interested in dentistry as I have always thought it would be interesting to work in a health profession. Coming from a hospitality background I enjoy working with people and I like working in a team atmosphere.

What is your current role and what do you enjoy most about your job?

My current role at Ocean View Dental is a dental assistant. The thing I enjoy most about my job is helping our patients. We often have patients coming in who are very self conscious of their teeth/smile and it is fulfilling being apart of the reason they regain the confidence to smile again. I also do some front desk work and enjoy catching up with our patients before and after their appointments.

Why do you like working at Ocean View Dental?

I enjoy working at Ocean View Dental as we have a small team and all get along really well.  Everyone is so supportive and always willing to help when needed, which creates a happy working environment.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, hanging out with my friends and walking my dogs. I also have two beautiful nieces who I love to spend time with and spoil!

 

LAUREN – Dental Assistant

What made you interested in dentistry?

I originally started my study in a Bachelor of Nursing at UniSA but when it wasn’t for me, I decided to pursue a career in the dental field instead. I always had a good experience and enjoyed going to the dentist when I was younger and thought the dental assistants played such a vital role in the patient journey. I completed my Certificate III of Dental Assisting in 2016 and have been working in the role for 4 years. I am still expanding my knowledge and learning more as I go!

What is your current role and what do you enjoy most about your job?

I am currently a dental assistant and I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, ranging from preventative care to cosmetic treatment. It is always rewarding seeing patients make progress in their dental care –knowing that I can assist them in feeling relaxed and comfortable during their visit is very fulfilling!

Why do you like working at Ocean View Dental?

Ocean View Dental places a huge importance on working as a team. Every staff member that works here knows their individual role which ultimately comes back to the way we provide care for all of our patients. We are always trying to improve and with the support of an amazing team we all help each other succeed in our roles. I have also been exposed to more cases of cosmetic dentistry and I love seeing our patients finally become happy with their smile and walk out feeling confident!

What do you like to do outside of work?

I have always been very family orientated and outside of work I love to spend time with my family and friends. I love going out for food and drinks and trying new places around Adelaide. I also enjoy keeping fit and find time wherever possible to go to the gym.

 

ANNIE – Dental Assistant (Trainee)

What made you interested in dentistry?

Throughout school I was always interested in healthcare but wasn’t sure exactly what part of it I wanted to get into. I came across dentistry by chance and decided to give it a go as I had always been conscientious of my teeth and actually enjoyed going to the dentist when I was younger! My first ever dental job was at a small practice a couple years ago and ever since then I’ve been hooked and never looked back once!

What is your current role and what do you enjoy most about your job?

I am currently a Dental Assistant. My job has many perks but one of the aspects I enjoy most is meeting all our lovely patients and getting to know more about themselves – not just their teeth! Many of our patients come to Ocean View hoping to improve their smile, and I love getting to watch their confidence grow and how happy they become after they receive their treatment. There is also a lot of cleaning and sterilising involved with dental assisting which I actually find quite relaxing and therapeutic.

Why do you like working at Ocean View Dental?

I love working at Ocean View Dental because of the emphasis on working as a team here. All of the girls are so wonderful and talented, and it is incredibly motivating to work beside them. Communication is key at Ocean View and we all work together to achieve the best work place possible and to see our patients smile.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work I love to go out for coffee or a bite to eat. My goal is to try as many places possible around Adelaide and find the best coffee. You can also find me enjoying the outdoors and going for walks – I love to make the most of the daylight so any chance I can get I will be enjoying the sunshine.

 

GABBY – Dental Assistant (Trainee)

What made you interested in dentistry?

Growing up I wanted to get a job that was centred around helping people. The medical field is also something that has always been an interest of mine. Going to the dentist regularly, I got to see what the dental assistants got to do and from there I knew that I wanted to pursue dental assisting.

What is your current role and what do you enjoy most about your job?

My current role is a Dental Assistant and I love it. My favourite part of the job is learning new things as different cases arise. I also love chairside assisting/nursing as I love helping people and find it really fascinating.

Why do you like working at Ocean View Dental?

The team here at Ocean View Dental are so lovely, supportive and caring and that makes working here so much better. The environment at Ocean View Dental is like one I’ve never experienced before. Their dedication to providing their patients with the best oral care and support is what makes this practice unlike the rest and it’s a privilege to be able to work in such an amazing practice.

What do you like to do outside of work?

In my spare time I love to spend time with family and friends. I love baking, especially when it has to do with chocolate. I enjoy relaxing by watching movies or a TV show and I enjoy going out and exploring new places.
