Getting to know you – Demi

We love creating staff profiles on our blog for our patients to get to know some of the faces they may (or may not) be seeing during their visits to the clinic.

We have 15 staff members within the building who all play different roles within the practice to keep it running smoothly and providing you with high quality treatment. Today’s post is all about Dental Nurse, Demi.

How long have you worked in Dentistry?

I’ve been a Dental nurse for nearly 4 years and studied locally at Sandwell College. I have been at North Street for nearly 2 years and originally started as maternity cover but am now a permanent fixture at the practice as a Dental Nurse.

What is the favourite part of your job?

I really like when people have a transformation from being low in their self esteem to having a big increase in confidence after having their treatment done. The treatment received can life changing for many people. That’s what inspires us all in this job.

I enjoy getting to know the patients and seeing them throughout their treatment from start to finish. It’s always lovely to see them come back for their checkups and maintenance appointments, seeing how well they are getting on with their treatment. I also enjoy being in the surgery and keeping everything organised. I’m always looking for new ways to keep my surgery neat and tidy.

What do you enjoy doing in your time off from work? Do you have any hobbies?

I like to just chill with my family and friends when I’m not at work. I enjoy shopping and love looking at makeup and skincare things. I also enjoy going to the cinema and watching films, I like most genres really. You wouldn’t know but I am actually a big fan of horror and thriller films!

What is your favourite holiday destination?

Devon in the UK, Cyprus for abroad.

What is your favourite food?

I really like a Nandos! I like the hot sauces too so that would be my favourite meal I think. Chicken all the way!

And what would be the best dental advice that you would give to someone?

To see your dentist and hygienist every 6 months to help prevent against need for treatment. Also to be brushing every morning and evening and cleaning between the teeth daily too.

Demi started at North Street as maternity cover as part of the reception team and doing part time nursing with our clinicians. Since then, Demi has become a permanent member of the team and is now working as Principal Steve’s nurse as part of the Denture Clinic.

Demi is a much loved member of the team who is a favourite amongst patients. Working as part of reception for over a year, Demi has got to know many of our patients well and her friendly and welcoming personality puts many patients at ease.

She is hard-working, kind-hearted, loves keeping organised and keeps many of the staff’s spirits up with her humorous nature. We love having Demi as part of our team here.
