Hi I’m Kira, I started at Treetops dental surgery Wolverhampton in 2017, I initially started Treetops as a trainee nurse, I am now a qualified dental nurse as of June this year, which means the world to me and all that hard work paid off, you’ll also see me working on reception helping the reception team from time to time, which is nice as I get to see all the patients and see some not so familiar faces that I wouldn’t see otherwise.
Why did I want to be a dental nurse – I always wanted to become a dental nurse due to an experience that changed my mind about visiting the dentists back in 2015, I used to be a very nervous patient and when I went to have Orthodontics at a different practice, the dentist there made me feel so relaxed and comfortable, it didn’t feel like I was attending dental appointments. So I thought if he can change my mind being so nervous, it would be nice if I could do the same for other people too, and this is what I now do at Treetops!
Further aspirations – As I have only recently qualified I would like to expand my qualifications further by taking courses for impression and radiography, as this is an area of dentistry that really interests me. Currently my favourite treatment is crown and bridge preparations, I enjoy seeing how a broken down tooth can be made to look brand new and unnoticeable, then at the end of the treatments I love to see the patients reactions to the comparison of the before and after affects, there aren’t many jobs where you can really improve the quality of someone’s life in this way, I feel if a patient is conscious of their smile then we are literally helping them smile again and that makes it all worthwhile to me.
A bit about me, I recently got engaged and I am now starting all of the wedding preparations which are keeping me very busy, I am a keen crafts person, so I really enjoy crochet and knitting, I find it`s a great way to relax and free my mind of any daily stresses, as well as being involved in charity work, sometimes I get to combine both passions. I also enjoy shopping mostly buying shoes; I have built up quite a collection! And of course eating out and spending time with family and friends.
