My name is Iza and I am one of the Oral Health Therapist here at Smiles & Faces Orthodontics. In this podcast. I will talk about a bit of myself and what I do in the practice . To become an Oral Health Therapist I studied a 3 year Bachelor’s Degree in Oral Health at the University of Sydney and graduated in 2012. So this is now my 4th year in the industry. Before this I also completed a 3 yr Bachelor’s Degree in Medical Science at Sydney University and was working as a dental assistant. I absolutely love the dental industry knowing that we can make a difference to our patient’s smiles.
As an Oral health therapist, I am trained to work along side an orthodontist, so I work with Dr Chang and do a variety of procedures from taking impressions, preparing for putting on braces and taking them off, helping out with braces or plates adjustments, Invisalign procedures as well as giving oral health and dietary instructions to mention a few.
As an Oral Health Therapist,I am also a dual qualified dental hygienist and therapist, specialising in treating gum conditions and oral health education as well seeing kids under the age of 18 for dental treatment. Being a mum myself to a 12 month old, I am passionate about working with kids and helping them to feel at ease and enjoy their dental visits.
I attend ongoing dental courses to keep up-to-date and to ensure that we carry out the best practices for our patients.
For our future patients, I look forward to seeing you and for those we have been seeing, it’s a great pleasure to share your orthodontic journey with you and we kindly thank you for your referrals.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call our practice or email Dr. Andrew Chang, firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for listening.
