The importance of gender equality in dentistry

The importance of gender equality in dentistry

What has your career journey been like??

As an undergraduate student, I knew I wanted to follow a hospital career pathway. After my vocational training year, I carried out several hospital posts as a Senior House Officer/ DCT in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Radiology, Paediatric Dentistry, Oral Surgery and Oral Medicine. Following this, I applied for specialty training in Orthodontics in Leeds, which led to the Membership in Orthodontics (MOrth) qualification in 2016.

As a specialty trainee, I researched auto transplantation of teeth for my MSc project.??

When I finished my specialty training, I spent two years as an Associate Specialist in Kettering hospital alongside working in a Specialist Orthodontic practice. I decided to do further training to be a Consultant in Birmingham, leading to the ISFE which I completed in 2021. Since then, I have been working part-time as a consultant and part-time in Specialist Orthodontic practice.
