Meet Jadine who turned her life around by training to become a dental nurse.
Out of all the wonderful SmileWisdom Success Stories, Jadine’s has to be one of our favourites. Read on to find out how Jadine went from finding herself homeless to becoming a successful and inspiring dental nurse.
After starting her training with SmileWisdom, Jadine found a trainee dental job straight away in February 2020 but unfortunately due to the pandemic her job there ended the following month. Happily, Jadine found another position in September of the same year and she’s been with London Road Dental Centre ever since, becoming a fully qualified dental nurse in November 2021.
Her journey with SmileWisdom is one she remembers fondly, “They were so helpful from beginning to end. If I needed any support one of the staff members would reply back instantly with a solution. Liz in particular was fantastic, she 100% believes in you and convinces you that you’re good at what you do, she’s so motivating and funny!”
For Jadine, becoming a dental nurse has changed so many aspects of her life – from helping her to gain trust in people and making lovely friends on the course to building her confidence through training and working in practice.
Jadine is so passionate about her dental journey that there’s no stopping her now. One day she would love to progress into a hygienist or dentist role. We look forward to chatting to her again when she reaches her next goal!
“I’ve never stuck to anything before in my life and I’m so consistent with this. I’m like a new person, I’m so proud of myself!”
