Shelley ChadwickAfter starting her career in 1997 as a dental assistant, Shelley realised she loved the close relationships that dentistry provided. “I felt a real desire to further my career with dental hygiene so I could continue helping patients gain and maintain overall oral health.”

Finding Fulfillment Helping Patients

The most rewarding aspect of being a dental hygienist is providing patients with confidence in a safe and supportive environment and empowering them to take control of their oral health.”

Shelley also finds it fulfilling to help patients gain and then maintain a disease-free mouth and help them understand how this goes hand in hand with their overall health and wellbeing. She feels it is important to make small gradual changes over long-term relationships.
