Pawel Wiglusz

Dental Technician Apprentice

I started working here at Smiles Better in December 2022. I’ve always knew that I had an interest in dentistry. So when I saw this job opportunity, I knew it was time to make the jump from my previous experience in Dental Nursing to Dental Technology.

I have been loving being a part of the Smiles Better team ever since I had started.

I enjoy working in the dental laboratory and seeing the variety of different denture treatments available. Working in the laboratory with two dental technicians is really helping me with my continued learning.

I’m looking forward to continuing my journey in Dentistry and exploring the opportunities that I could go onto after qualifying as a Dental Technician.

Out of work, my favourite things to do are spending time with my family and doing fun activities.
