Meet our Treatment consultants
Samara, Treatment Consultant
Since starting with Smile Team Orthodontics, Samara has shown how much of a fast learner she is, taking on several roles simultaneously and quickly becoming well versed in even the most complex procedures. Officially she is one of our Treatment Consultants, and an extremely good one at that. Her wide ranging orthodontic knowledge and warm, friendly approach means patients always feel at ease and comfortable during their treatment journey.
Samara understands how much of a big step orthodontic work is, and goes out of her way to address each concern, ensuring no question is left unanswered. Working closely with the Orthodontists on treatment plans means she is always aware of what’s going on, and in the know should a patient need more information. Needless to say, she is something of an expert on every single one of our treatment options, and could pretty much recite the procedures in her sleep!
It’s safe to say Smile Team wouldn’t be the same without Samara’s eccentric, bubbly energy, and when she’s not here she’s out in nature here or overseas satisfying her adventurous streak. Speaking of eccentricity, next time you see her ask her about her dreams of opening a luxury cat hotel.
Ariana, Treatment Consultant
Starting with Smile Team initially as a clinic nurse, Ari has continued to go from strength to strength and in 2016, progressed to the role of Treatment Consultant. Prior to this, she’s completed the Certificate III & IV in Dental Assisting and attended numerous Orthodontic and Invisalign conferences locally and interstate to keep the ball rolling on her education.
Due to her wide ranging skill set, she is a huge asset to the team and helps out in many different areas. She loves working as a Treatment Consultant, where she can tailor treatment plans to suit each client personally. Getting to stay with them throughout their journey means she can see the huge impact orthodontic work can have on every aspect of someone’s life. As an avid traveller, she’s used to getting to know a diverse range of people, and is extremely talented at putting a smile on people’s faces. Their smiles make her smile.
Despite being a longstanding member of the Smile Time, Ari hasn’t lost her adventurous streak, and she loves being outdoors trying new things. If she isn’t gardening, you’ll find her doing yoga, travelling overseas or eating out. In fact, she enjoys the restaurants in Wollongong so much, if she wasn’t working with Smile Team, she thinks she may have been a food critic. Luckily for us, and our patients, she chose orthodontics and we’re lucky enough to work with her everyday.
