Hi my name is Aleisha. I currently work at Avenue Dental Bli Bli as a dental assistant.
I started at Avenue dental in 2017 at the Caloundra practice and worked there about six months when I was asked to join the Bli Bli team when Avenue dental decided to expand and open the Bli Bli practice. I got into dental about 4 years ago when I decided that I needed a change in career and went off and studied my certificate 3 in hope to get a job within the industry. I discovered that I loved the industry and variety that each day brings. It’s a challenging and intense job some days but it is also very rewarding when you get to see the change and the confidence that a new smile can bring to a patient.
Avenue Dental has provided me with the opportunity to grow and challenge myself having taken on the role of clinical coordinator since moving to the Bli Bli practice and soon to be taking on more study expanding my knowledge and skills by studying my certificate 4 in dental assisting and radiography. Avenue Dental has many values that they try to incorporate into the practices but the one that speaks to me the most is team work. At our Bli Bli practice we have a small team but everyone gets on so well and really helps each other out to make the practice flow so well.
Avenue Dental is the first place that I have ever worked that you hear laughter constantly throughout the day and if you ask most staff they will tell you that they consider some of their workmates among their closest friends. On the weekends you generally find me with one or two of my workmates spending the day catching up for a coffee, riding a bike, spending time at the beach or even travelling. I grew up on the Sunshine Coast and you’ll generally find me in hometown of Mooloolaba on the weekends but my passion in life is travel. I’m always planning my next trip away and I love to hear suggestions and tips of places that I should visit. I thoroughly enjoy my job at Avenue Dental and I’m proud to say that I’m part of such a great team where the Dentists not only take pride in their work but also genuinely care about our patients and their dental experience.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THE CULTURE OF AVENUE DENTAL?
What I love most about avenue dental is the culture. This is a company that hire based on personality which allows for the most amazing team of people, where work colleges become people that you not only want to work with but spend your weekends with too. A place where you are happy and proud to recommend people come to as patient but also you want to recruit friends to join the team. There is not many other workplaces that you get to give back to your patients on a regular basis by not only providing a great caring service but by also showing a little appreciating by wowing patients with acts of service and gifts.At Avenue dental days are filled with laughter and fun and an environment that people flourish in both personally and professionally. I feel lucky to be part of a team where I can genuinely say consist of some of my best friends.
