Something to smile about
Cornerhouse Dental has more than 20 years’ experience in making people look and feel great. They don’t just deliver beautiful dentistry, they change lives one smile at a time. Here we meet the latest member of the team, Dr German Dorgan Ziraldo.
My sister and I both followed in the footsteps of our grandfather, father and mother by becoming dentists. It was never forced upon us, but for me personally it was the only thing I could imagine doing!
Seeing people smile is genuinely one of my favourite things. My dad always advised me that: “You’ll never have a second chance to give a good first impression.” My time as a dentist really has shown me how much a smile can impact people in their day-to-day life. I would like my patients to feel like they can always smile with confidence knowing that they have a healthy and beautiful smile. I love that with dentistry, I can care for each patient individually; there are so many different restorative treatments available to people now, that it really depends on what the patient needs. After qualifying at the European University of Madrid, I worked in my parents’ practice for a couple of years before choosing to come to England. All professional dental exams have to be written in English, so it was an exciting opportunity to experience the country and improve my communication.
I came to Norwich for a month and quickly fell in love with this “fine city”. I applied for a job and the initial idea was to stay for a year, but before I knew it, six years had passed and I am still here!
I’ve worked in the same practice since coming to Norwich, and have gained valuable experience in both NHS and private work. In addition, I have worked hard to extend my skills and knowledge further by taking courses relating to endodontic and restorative dentistry.
When the opportunity to work at CHD arose, I immediately liked the atmosphere and people. All the dentists at CHD are passionate about Dentistry, as am I. As a team working together, we get to serve patients, to the best of our abilities.
