Our latest Dental Nurse Hero is….

Daniella started at Poole as a receptionist, coming from a background in care work. After three months in the position, she enrolled as a Student Dental Nurse, going on to qualify as a Dental Nurse. She’s thoroughly enjoyed working alongside dentist, Dr Kunal, and spending time building strong relationships with their patients.

Daniella took the opportunity to become the practice first aider, welcoming the additional responsibility. Since qualifying, Daniella has taken advantage of the additional vocational courses offered at the practice and has now taken the additional duty of maternity cover for Head Nurse.

Daniella’s Practice Manager said “She really is a great example of how far you can take your career with nursing in {my}dentist”.

Daniella was recently nominated as a Dental Nurse Hero thanks to her brilliant response to provide first aid to a patient who had a suspected anaphylactic shock. Her nomination states, “Daniella stayed calm and professional throughout and followed procedure. We are very impressed with Daniella’s work ethic, working under pressure.”

Daniella reacted quickly to offer the patient immediate care, contacted the emergency services and prepared the medical history for the paramedics when they arrived.

Daniella said, “When I was alerted, I just went into auto pilot mode and my first aid training took over, I don’t think I’ve ever moved so fast”.

Daniella called the patient the next day to check up on them demonstrating her outstanding level of care and commitment.

All nurses nominated will receive a letter from CEO, Tom Riall and a badge of recognition. Our Dental Nurse Heroes campaign was introduced in 2019 to recognise those who have gone the extra mile to look after their patients or colleagues and ensure the smooth running of their practices. We are so proud of all of our dental nurses and the important role they play in our practices.
