SUCCESSFUL DENTAL NURSES

SmileWisdom Alumni celebrates Zita

Meet Zita who took her NEBDN diploma with SmileWisdom and is now working as a dental nurse in Battersea

I started being interested in dentistry when was 15 and I got prescribed an orthodontic treatment. As a child, I was very scared of dentists and it took me a while to gain the courage to commit to a long treatment like fixed braces.

My doctor was a very kind and comforting lady and on each appointment, I was amazed at the way she worked with her team and students. I was visiting her practice for four years each month and it became my second home. I never thought that I was going to miss the practice once my treatment was finished; apart from my new smile, I was lucky enough to meet a wonderful dental team which completely changed the way I perceived dentistry.

I finished university in Hungary where I gained a degree in human resources but healthcare was always at the back of my mind. I was attempting to start college after my moving to London and finally decided to do something new and step into the dental field during the lockdown.

I joined my fantastic college SmileWisdom where I was given huge support from the beginning. I really enjoy the way our tutor Dr Liz Moran teaches us; her classes are fun, she combines humour with theory and practical knowledge in order to make us understand more difficult topics. I am looking forward to getting my NEBDN diploma which is essential in fulfilling my long term goals.

“Dental nursing as a profession is not easy, it takes a lot of multitasking and it can be very demanding. But everything pays off when you see the patient smiling at the end of the treatment.”

I am working as a trainee dental nurse in a dental clinic called London Dental Implant in Battersea, mainly working with Dr Andrea Kadar who is a general dentist and my mentor.

Dr Andrea is one of my biggest pillars of support and along her side, I have gained practical knowledge in different fields of dentistry. Working with her is a pleasure as well as with the other great dentists in the practice I am eager to learn from. I believe that the core of great service is a good team which we definitely have in London Dental Implant.

Besides dentistry, I have one more passion- Latin and Ballroom dancing. I was a competitive dancer for years, but since I have stepped into the world of dental nursing I have realised that dentistry is a career I would like to stay in long term.

It is a field that allows you to expand your career both vertically and horizontally and constantly grow. My favourite thing in dentistry is that you are involved in helping others, particularly when I am able to calm and ease a patients anxiety.

This gives me even more self-gratification. Dental nursing as a profession is not easy, it takes a lot of multitasking and it can be very demanding. But everything pays off when you see the patient smiling at the end of the treatment.
