Hi I’m Nicole!
I started off my dental career part time in Sydney when I was still at school, so naturally when I graduated I had a full time job waiting for me. I immediatly started my Certificate 3 in dental assisting at Tafe. This all helped towards my journey moving slowly up the coast to Coffs Harbour, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, and never being without a job. I started working along side Dr Richard Bell in 1997 which I never have looked back. If I wasn’t for working for Dr Richard Bell I would never had the amazing opportunity in working for Avenue Dental Caloundra.
At the moment I am keeping busy by broadening my skills and studying towards getting my certificate 4 in Dental Radiography and on my days off when I’m not at Ave Dental Caloundra, Ill be working in our home business. There is so much I love about working at Avenue Dental Caloundra but If I had to pick one it would be the diversity of the staff I work with. One of the best moments was ‘The Amazing Race” this was a reward for completing a 90 day goal at work. This is where all the Ave Dental practices came together and were place in groups to compete against each other. The challenge had us driving and running around Kings Beach, Mooloolah Valley, Maleny Dairy and finishing up at Brouhaha Brewery for a lovely lunch and a cool drink.
The Sunshine Coast has so much to offer from the beautiful beaches and national parks, restaurants cafes and markets. In my free time you will find me doing the beautiful coastal walk anywhere from Golden Beach to Moffat Headland and spending quality time with my family and friends.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THE CULTURE OF AVENUE DENTAL?
I love everything here at Ave Dental Caloundra!It all starts as soon as you walk in and meet the friendly staff on the reception and hearing the echos of laughter throughout the practice.I feel we all work together as a team by supporting each other professional and personally. We follow, values and aim to set goals.I believe it all comes from the top from great leadership and management who really look after us and care. If feel we can be open and honest with communication which creates a positive feeling within the work place.I’m always happy to come to work as it feels like being with my second family here at Avenue Dental Caloundra.
