Dental Hygienist & Trainee Dental Therapist
Monika started her career in dentistry in 2016 as a dental nurse at this very practice! However, she wanted more involvement in patient care and had an interest in learning about the science behind dentistry so she went on to study Dental Hygiene at the University of Essex and qualified with Distinction.
Monika is very passionate about helping patients improve their oral health and ultimately to secure general wellbeing through her holistic approach and patient education – working with patients as a team to ensure they can keep their teeth for as long as possible. Monika helps patients manage gum disease with a caring and supportive approach. She also enjoys teaching children how to take care of their teeth so they can develop healthy dental habits that will set them up for life.
Monika is a member of the British Society of Periodontology, and is always keen to learn so she can implement the most up to date-evidence based treatments for patients. She would like to continue growing in her career, after qualifying as a Dental Hygienist she has decided to continue her studies at university and is now studying Dental Therapy which involves a more restorative aspect- including placing fillings.
After she finishes her studies Monika would like to do some volunteer work to provide dental treatment for those who are vulnerable and find it difficult to access dental care.
