Dental Assistant

"I love working at the Smile Team because it is an incredibly supportive environment where we all work together to ensure the best possible experience for our patients"

I began my career as a speech therapist in a children’s hospital in my native Slovakia. After marrying and moving to Australia, while I worked hard to learn English, I sought a different career path.

I decided to train as a dental nurse because I enjoy interacting with people.  I find it incredibly fulfilling to provide support to patients when they are feeling tense or vulnerable, which is usually the case when people visit the dentist.  I want to share my enjoyment in what I do with my patients so that my happiness is passed onto patients.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing various musical instruments, catching up with friends, and my ultimate joy in life is watching my children grow and helping them thrive.
