What is your role at Fullarton Park Dental?
I’m a Dental Hygienist. I’ve been at Fullarton Park Dental just on two years now.
Why did you decide to become a Dental Hygienist?
I had a lot of dental trauma largely as a result of a lack of awareness around dental health growing up. This helped make me very motivated to enter the dental industry and to share and spread awareness of the importance of oral and dental hygiene to others.
What do you most enjoy about your job?
I really enjoy making patients aware of how simple oral care routines can avoid bigger breakdowns and more issues in the future.
What does an ideal Sunday look like for you?
A long session of yoga and meditation, lots of home cooking and beach time with family.
Favourite holiday destination?
I would really like to visit Iceland! My brother lives in Sweden and I also have a cousin in Poland and they’ve shared a lot of pictures and I’d really like to visit and the hot springs and geothermal pools. The other spot I’d love to return to is Cairns. We went there last year on a family holiday and I couldn’t get enough of that place. The waterfalls especially are just so pristine! They are my dream destinations.
What’s a special skill you have that not many people know about?
I can do a headstand!
What’s one thing you’re excited about coming up in 2023.
My trip to India towards the end of 2023. I haven’t been there in five years so I’m looking forward to seeing lots of family and to share the journey with my sons who are too young to have had a connection with India before.
If you could instantly become an expert in something, what would it be?
Scuba diving, the underwater world is so fascinating and mysterious. I would love to be able to be able to scuba dive by myself.
What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?
I can talk a lot about spirituality, mental hygiene and meditation. I feel I connect to a lot of patients here on those topics.
If you had to eat one thing for every meal going forward, what would you eat?
Khichdi – It’s a very basic mix of rice, lentils and vegetables and I could eat that every single meal for a whole year!
If you could win an Olympic medal for any sport, real or fake, what would it be?
Where is your happy place?
My happy place is inside my mind, its a place which gives me joy and fulfilment like no other place.
