Meet the Moss Vale Dental Team – Melanie
We want all our patients to feel comfortable and welcomed when they visit and we thought it was high time we introduced you to our valued team.
What is your role at the office? What will we find you doing at the office?
Dental Assistant with lots of ambition. We could meet in the treatment room as I assist with procedures or at reception when I make your next appointment. I really enjoy doing the domestics and hanging out in the steri bay.
How long have you been in the dental industry?
Eighteen months: I came pretty much fresh from high school.
How/why did you start working in the industry?
It seemed a much better idea than working at Macca’s… and guess what! It is.
What is your favourite part of your job?
It’s really amazing to see the transformation of a patient’s teeth from painful or unappealing to healthy and beautiful. I also like blood and bone fragments.
Do you have a special piece of equipment/ tool/ new toy that you use at work that you would like to tell us about?
The curing light is pretty cool.
What is your secret superpower?
Sleeping in really late but still making it to work on time. It’s a miracle.
What do you get up to when you’re not at work?
My super cute bitzer called Charlie keeps me company when the pastry chef is busy working on the strawberry tarts. I took myself to South Korea last year which gave me a deep appreciation of Soju a delicious beverage. My ukulele career was short lived.
What’s your best tip on keeping a healthy mouth?
I think brushing daily and coming to your hygiene appointments should do it.
