Dental Assistant

I was born in Bulgaria and after I completed study in Biotechnology and Industrial Chemistry my partner and I decided to travel and explore the world!!
Finally we found our destination, beautiful New Zealand which we call home now.

In 2013 I started my dental career as a trainee dental assistant and receptionist where I completed the NZDA dental assistant certificate and Resuscitation level 4. I have continued my professional development working alongside with some very skilled and leading dentists.

My passion is oral surgery, implantology and cosmetic dentistry.

I love working and helping people and I am also a member of the Canterbury Charity Dental Hospital.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my partner, son, and dog. I love dancing, painting, running, hiking and being outdoors with family and friends.
