What attracted you to want to work in the UK?
Glaucia: Once I had finished my studies in Brazil, I decided to go to Europe to learn English. The intention was to travel as much as possible before I started my career as a dentist. I was welcomed into the UK and had a lot of support from Smile Wisdom Academy of Dentistry and Dental Nursing so l and was able to start working as a student dental nurse in the UK. This was the first step towards my career as dentist in the UK.
Erica: In 2013, I got a scholarship to study in Leicester for a year during my under graduation as a dentist in Brazil. It was a wonderful and remarkable experience. After that, I decided I would like to live abroad again once I had qualified as a dentist in Brazil. I chose the UK, as I already knew the process to be a dentist. I knew the language, I had friends I met while at Leicester University and, because I’m half Italian, I didn’t need a work visa.
