Meet the delightful Arpita Patel – our tooth-loving dental assistant and self-confessed ‘neat-freak’! Arpita works alongside our dentists here at our Joondalup dental clinic. Fortunately for us, Arpita cannot tolerate anything dirty – and loves to keeping things pristine and clean, which, we guess, makes her perfectly suited to her role here at Dentistry Plus…
Hello, my name is… Arpita Patel
My qualification is… Certificate in Dental Nursing
My role is… I’m a dental assistant
What that means is… Essentially, I assist the dentist, and sterilise the equipment.
I was born in… Gujarat, West India
I first developed an interest in dental nursing when… I was 24.
The reason why am so interested in dentistry is because… I like teeth!
My favourite moment at Dentistry Plus was… every Friday when we all order lunch together.
Over the next year I look forward to… learning about assisting the dentist in placing dental implants.
To me, the best thing about working in the dental industry is… you get to learn new things every day.
You’ll always find me… talking about how mouth hygiene is essential.
On a Sunday morning you can find me… sleeping in bed!
My number one vice is… I cannot tolerate dirty things – I am a neat freak!
