Dental Assistant in the CLINICA DENTAL BOTANICO / Dental Clinic Carlsson – Tenerife (since 2007)
At the end of 2007 we realised our wish to set up our own small Dental Clinic on Tenerife. My husband and I continue to work here hand in hand. From assisting in the treatment room to practice management. In short: “Here I do everything except drilling” 😉
Dental Assistant in Dental Clinic Thorsten Carlsson – Hamburg (1996-2007)
Looking for a small harmonious Dental Clinic in Hamburg … The description of a job advertisement particularly caught my eye. “That’s where I start.” And that’s how I ended up in this small Dental Clinic of my now husband, as we have more in common than just pure dentistry 😉 .
From 1996 to 2000 I worked for him as a chair assistant. The cooperation, working hand in hand, brought and still brings me a lot of fun. It is the calm, concentrated, fast work without having to lose many words / questions. The independent work also brought a lot of familiarity between us.
Dental assistant as first-aider in Group Dental Clinic – Hamburg Bramfeld (1995-1996)
After successfully completing my dental assistant training, I worked in a group dental clinic in Hamburg, which was staffed by three dentists and two dental hygienists. I enjoyed working with my dentist, the oral surgeon Dr. Atzeroth. With him, I gained a lot of experience in dentistry, which I did not have during my training.
I was quickly appointed as his first-aider and was thus responsible for the entire management of his treatment, especially in oral surgery. Furthermore, I supported the reception area in the group practice as needed. In this way, I also gained my first insights and experiences in the Dental Clinic administration and organisational processes.
Although I enjoyed working with my dentist, I soon realised that a group practice with five practitioners working in shifts was not for me in the long run. So we parted ways with a heavy heart, as I feel more comfortable in a small Dental Clinic.
Training as a dental assistant – Mecklenburg-Vorpommern / Germany (1992-1995)
I trained as a dental assistant in a 3-year dual system with Dental Clinic and vocational school to learn the basics of dentistry for chair assistance and administration. In 1995 I successfully completed my training as a dental assistant (ZFA). Then it was off to Hamburg.
