Congratulations to our dental nurses Claire Morrison, Inga Pietrzak and Rochelle Law

March 11, 2018
Congratulations to our dental nurses Claire Morrison, Inga Pietrzak and Rochelle Law who all recently successfully completed courses from the Scottish Qualifications Authority in Dental Nursing.
Claire and Inga both gained 2 Higher National Units: "Local Decontamination of Reusable Dental Instruments" and also in "Dental Impressions for Working or Study Models".
Rochelle completed the unit in "Dental Impressions for Working or Study Models".
Well done! They've all worked very hard indeed and we're very proud of their achievements!
Today, it was the Presentation Ceremony at the Suttie Centre, University of Aberdeen.
Claire was there to accept her Awards at the ceremony (Inga and Rochelle were unable to make it) with Dr Lisa Currie coming to support.
Around 120 people were present at the event, including the nurse graduates, their friends and family (and 1 employer!).
Here is Claire at the presentation with Caroline Taylor (Lead Dental Care Professional Tutor) and Graham Orr (Director of Postgraduate Dental Education).
Brilliant to see our nurses further their knowledge with continuing courses - it's great for our clinic and the dental profession to have that dedication in their careers.
We are highly supportive of them and always encourage them to pursue further training.
As patients of our clinic, you may have your dental impressions carried out by one of our nurses and you can be assured that they have had excellent training in this field and now have a Scottish qualification certificate to be proud of.

Children 1st Charity

November 24, 2017
We feel it’s very important to give back to our local community and so we looked around for local charities to see what we could get involved in. We came across the charity Children 1st and read about the amazing work they do for vulnerable and abused children in Scotland.
Their vision for the future is a happy, healthy, safe and secure for every child and young person in Scotland. At The Orthodontic Clinic, we see and treat so many children and it really struck a chord with us. After learning more about them and seeing some of the work they do, we felt very inspired and wanted to make a contribution to this very worthwhile cause.
We were honoured to have been invited by the charity to the annual Children 1st charity ball. Our directors attended this wonderful evening on 17th November and met some truly great people who work for and contribute to the charity.
The charity celebrated 30 years this year, so it was an even more special occasion. A evening really highlighted the very important work that they do and ways in which everyone and anyone can help.
(Please Twitter) #GiveTheGift or www.givethegift.org.uk
Please do share this and by doing so, we hope more people can help the Children 1st charity. Thank you.
