I enjoy being a Practice Manager, as I find it very challenging and rewarding. It has given me the opportunity to further myself in my career but most importantly, it has given me the ability to do what I love best and that is, taking on responsibility for my every day-to-day managerial role and being able to contribute to ideas, show my organization skills and put structure into my work.
One of the greatest rewards working at WeLCOMe is knowing that patients are confident to approach me should they have any concerns in regards to orthodontic treatment and I am always so happy to see how excited they are when they finally reach their ‘perfect smile’. Unfortunately for me, it is always so sad to see them go when they have completed their orthodontic treatment, because I feel like I have formed a close and personal friendship with them.
In the past year, my responsibilities have also included visiting primary schools in the local area of Hammersmith to educate young children on oral hygiene. To help further my career, I am studying to obtain ILM Level 5 Diploma in Management which will recognize my qualifications in management as a Dental Practice Manager.
My name is Ivana and I’ve been working as a qualified dental nurse for 9 years and have carried out further training and have gained my qualification in Dental Radiography. I joined WeLCOMe Orthodontics in January 2009 and is a pleasure being a member of the WeLCOME Orthodontics team. I get great satisfaction from my role as an orthodontic dental nurse, which allows me to interact with patients on a one-to-one basis and develop a trustworthy relationship with them.
It is important for me to know patient’s can trust me as I genuinely care for the treatment they are going to undertake. I really enjoy being part of the team. Both Dr Kyi and Nicolina have helped me to achieve to become more confident, knowledgeable and develop opportunities in further training.
