Oral Health Therapist (Dental Therapist/ Dental Hygienist)
BSc (UTS) BOH (USyd) Clinical Instructor Univ of Sydney
After completing her Bachelor of Oral Health degree from the University of Sydney, Vano went on to work in the public hospital, private clinic and in paediatric specialist practice.
As a dental therapist, Vano is qualified to provide general dental treatment on patients up to the age of 18 years. This includes checkups, hygiene maintenance, preventative sealants, fillings, extractions and nerve treatments. She believes it is necessary to introduce children to the dental clinic at an early age for prevention and early intervention of any oral and general health issues.
As a dental hygienist, she treats patients of all ages promoting preventative oral care which includes oral hygiene instructions, dietary advice, cleans (with or without local anaesthetics), fluoride treatment and preventative sealants. She strives to create a positive and relaxing environment for her patients. Her friendly and gentle approach makes it a pleasurable experience, especially for those who are nervous or anxious.
Vano also enjoys teaching and is currently involved as a clinical educator and instructor at the University of Sydney, where she supervises and provides support for the final year Bachelor of Oral Health students with their patient care.
Vano is registered with the AHPRA Dental Board and is also a member of the Australian Dental Therapist Association. She believes in evidence based practice and keeps herself updated by attending various courses and conferences.
Outside of dentistry, Vano's special interests include event decorating, cake making and travelling. She is currently learning Spanish.
