10 May Meet Natalie Our New Dental Hygienist
You may have seen a new face at The Dental Spa. We would like to introduce you to the newest member of our team. Natalie recently joined our team as our Hygiene and Whitening Specialist and we are very lucky to have her.
We asked Natalie a few questions to get to know her a little better.
Where are you originally from?
Although both my parents are originally Egyptian, I was born and raised in Canada. Toronto is where I call home since I spent most of my time there, however I did move to Vancouver and continued some of my education at UBC, where coincidentally, Dr Amer studied as well!
What brought you to Dubai?
I came out to Dubai for the sunshine and adventure. I love to challenge myself, so coming here and starting a new life with such a diverse demographic of people was very exciting. Plus, being in an Arabic country helps me rediscover my Middle Eastern culture and roots.
What do you like to do when you are not taking care of people’s teeth?
I love to go to the beach and hang out with my friends anywhere outdoors when the weather is good. Sometimes I like to volunteer walking the dogs in the shelter, and also with service in the community.
What do you enjoy most about being a dental hygienist?
Answering questions about Dental issues when I’m out and about and informing people about their oral health is very rewarding part of being a Dental Hygienist. But mostly, I love my patients! My favorite thing about being a Dental Hygienist, is when my patients walk out happy with their beautiful white smiles! Whether it is after a whitening sessions, or just their general cleaning, where their coffee/ smoking stains are removed, nothing is better than seeing them happy… not to mention when they tell me the experience was pain free and enjoyable! I love that we offer complimentary hand or foot massages while sitting in my Dental chair and getting the work done. Most people haven’t had that experience before, so it is great to offer it to them as a surprise.
