‘A dream does not become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work’. Colin PowelI
A mindset which I implement as the basis of all of my endeavours, consequently creating a confident and conscientious individual with a professional and hard working attitude. I believe this to be a vital trait in any career, especially dentistry.
‘A patient and caring dentist with an eye for detail and flare for making people feel comfortable’.
One of many views held by my patients and colleagues. Development of these skills, in the past 5 years, has honed my ability to effectively plan, manage and present choices to all my patients. As a good communicator I am able to positively influence and motivate colleagues and patients alike, resulting in positive outcomes for all.
I have found dentistry motivates a desire to learn and therefore inspires growth of the profession and the individual. It stimulates the need to gain knowledge and skills, to provide greater options to patients and improve my own skills base. To date my desire and motivation have been geared to furthering my knowledge of implantology, periodontology, orthodontics and restorative dentistry. I am keen to develop these skills, as well as others, in the future.
