Hi, my name is Alina.
I joined the Cliftonville Dental team as a Dental Hygienist in September 2022.
My journey into the dental world began in 2006. I graduated in 2011 from the University Of Medicine and Pharmacy N. Testemitanu in the Republic of Moldova. I continued my education at the same university with 3 years of postgraduate studies in dentistry and qualified as a general dentist.
After moving to the UK with my family I achieved my Dental Nursing Diploma. Working in the past as a dental nurse in the UK gave me a great understanding of its dental system.
Since I became part of this amazing and dedicated team, I have always had the feeling of coming home, where a very welcoming and familiar atmosphere awaits. I always enjoy being here, working with a highly motivated and very professional team.
I am extremely enthusiastic and delighted to empower my patients with knowledge regarding their oral hygiene at home along with their general wellbeing. My primary focus is on preventive oral hygiene advice and dental implants maintenance at home. I strongly believe this is the key to long term oral health.
My priority is to comfort the nervous patient and make them feel at ease, as well as alleviating their fears of attending a Dental Hygienist appointment.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, baking and socialising with my friends.
