Hi Sandy, thanks for speaking with us! Why don't you tell everyone a little about…
Great to meet you Lauren, why don’t you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Lauren, I’m originally from Melbourne but have spent the majority of my life in Ayrshire, Scotland, which explains my accent. I love to travel and plan trips and have spent 3 months travelling South East Asia before arriving back in Melbourne.
You previously worked as a dentist, tell us about your dental background and experience
I graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2014 and worked as a general dentist up until a few months ago. I’ve worked in high street practices for the NHS and privately in the UK and worked at the Royal Dental Hospital Melbourne when I first arrived in Melbourne.
What made you want to try something new?
With my love of travelling and exploring new places in general, being the Brand Representative in Victoria is ideal. It gives me a chance to get to know the area more while keeping in contact with friends and colleagues in the dental field. I can also use my first-hand experience in dental practices to better meet customer needs.
Having never worked with disposable dental instruments before, what do you think of the Single Use Dental Instrument range and concept?
I think like most of my friends and dental colleagues I was surprised by the extensive range and quality of the products. Having learned more about them I can see there many potential applications and when I would personally use them. They would certainly have helped with my time keeping on those busy days where nothing is going quite to plan!
A concern when I told most of my friends about my new job was the environmental factors of the instruments being disposable. However, knowing this is a project Single Use Dental are actively working on and are creating solutions to really got me on board with the concept.
How would you describe your new role with Single Use Dental?
In my new role, I will spend a lot of time developing relationships with the dental practices in Victoria, allowing me to spread awareness of our instruments. This will involve meeting with people to discuss our latest projects and product developments and to give them a feel of our instruments. I know having worked as a dentist how important it can be to see the instruments for yourself.
What are you most looking forward to in this new role?
I am looking forward to showing people our instruments and teaching them about a potentially new way of working that they might not have had much knowledge of before. It will be rewarding to try and bring the dental field into the future.
What are you most excited for on a Friday arvo?
I’m always excited to get out and enjoy the good Aussie weather, something I didn’t get much of in Scotland. I’m usually out walking or cycling, now all I need to do is convince my boyfriend to get a dog.
How can our Victorian customers and interested clinics get in touch with you?
They can contact me any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
