Getting to know the Treetops Team
What is your job?
How long have you been a Dental nurse?
What was your very first job?
Treetops Dental Surgery Wolverhampton
What did you want to do when you were at school?
I have always wanted to work as a Nurse, I’ve always seen myself in this kind of environment, caring for others, then an opportunity came up from my careers day at school and I put myself forward for an dental nurse apprenticeship with Treetops, I got it and I’ve been here ever since!
What made you want to become a dental nurse?
When I saw the opportunity to start an apprenticeship at Treetops, I looked back and realised that my own experience of having braces as a child was a really positive one, I was looked after and felt really cared for, I wanted to make others feel the same way I did.
What did you do to become a dental nurse?
I attended college straight from school as well as an apprenticeship with Treetops
What is a typical day like?
Every day is different as the treatments are so varied, which is great because I’m still always learning or seeing something new, but the caring environment and the lovely patients make it feel very homely.
What’s the best thing about your job?
The fact no two days are the same, and its nice to catch up with patients I haven’t seen for a while, plus the Treetops team are like a family to me, we are all very close.
What is the most challenging thing about your job?
Sometimes being on my feet all day can be tiring but its worth i love what I do.
What advice do you have for people who want to do what you do?
Be prepared to work hard, study hard, be on your feet and be busy.
Thank you Emma!!!!
