Dr Annabelle Dodo - Dentistby Jabir Kazi
A big welcome to @annabelle.dodo a dentist from Australia!
"Hello dental community! I graduated from dentistry at Sydney Uni in 2016 and have just wrapped up a very rewarding year of work at Westmead Hospital. Even though I've moved on to private practice, public dentistry will always resonate with me and I hope to be part of both worlds in the future.
Dentistry is enjoyable in so many ways, from those satisfying cleans to restoring a patient's self confidence. The relationships we build with our patients and colleagues last far beyond completion of treatment or end of a contract. However, things are not always smooth sailing as we all know, so my advice to my younger self would be:
1) It is futile to seek universal popularity (words of Albus Dumbledore)
2) Don't let anyone compromise your integrity and stand your ground when you know it's the right thing to do
3) Move forward with a fine balance between knowing your limits and pushing beyond your comfort zone
4) The family member test i.e. "if this patient was my mother, which option would I choose for her?" comes in handy especially as a new graduate faced with chronic indecision
Outside of dentistry I might be working out. I might be travelling if I'm lucky. I might be playing the piano, or reading a book for the best book club ever. I love to eat and will annoyingly photograph every plate of food. I have a cat whom I treat like a small child. I try and spend as much time with my family and friends as my busy schedule will accommodate, because as much as I'm into dentistry, it is ultimately an enjoyable means to allow me to spend my life having fun with those I love."
