Hello, I’m Sarah and I’m the Clinical Coordinator at Bella Dental Penrith. I have been working here since 2017 and I can truly say that I love my job and my work family!
When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my husband and our two daughters on bushwalks and picnics. I also love to travel and spent a month on safari in Africa where I got to see the big 5 (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo) and trekked with the gorillas.
Growing up, like a lot of people, I never liked visiting the dentist. Every visit usually meant a needle and fillings and hours of that numb feeling. The dentist was a place I avoided. My perspective has changed since I started working in the dental industry. I now understand how important it is to attend regular dental check-ups and I’m happy I can pass on good dental hygiene habits to my family. I’ve had my wisdom teeth extracted under IV sedation in my early 20’s when they started causing me some grief. Dr Geoff recently straightened my teeth with traditional braces and I now love my new straight smile!
I love getting to know our patients and building long term relationships with them but the highlight of my job is definitely smile makeovers. Having someone come in so unhappy with their smile and seeing the transformation to a happy, confident and best of all, unable to stop smiling patient, gives me all the feels!
