Some­thing to smile about

EDP Norfolk - - PROMOTION -

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.
