The Educational Supervisors:
Soula: I qualified from the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa in 1992 and came to the UK in 1994. I worked as an associate for a few years and set up Broxbourne Dental Care with my partner in 1997. I am an associate in this practice now, and the practice has been a foundation training practice since 2010. I also obtained a Diploma in Medical education in 2015. I have 2 children, a dog and in my free time I enjoy walking, cooking and jewelery making.
Shivani: I graduated in 2011 from Manchester Dental School and moved back to London to complete my dental foundation at Broxbourne Dental Care. I have been working as a full time associate at the practice since I completed my training. Post graduation, I always aim to build on my qualifications and have my MJDF and PgCert in Restorative Dental Practice from the Eastman. Particularly I enjoy combining short term orthodontic treatment with cosmetic restorative dentistry and thrive on achieving aesthetic results for my patients. I have a keen interest in academia and teaching. I regularly attend courses to keep my practise current and evidence based and absolutely love discussing and teaching my learnings to others. I am very much looking forward to mentoring and supporting a dental graduate. Outside of dentistry, I love travelling and cooking classes in all corners of the world (even as a veggie).
The Practice: Together Dental Broxbourne is a modern 6 surgery dental practice with 7 dentists and 2 hygienists. All surgeries are fully equipped, air-conditioned, have digital radiography and the latest SoE software. The practice has a purpose built decontamination room and CBCT scanner. It is a mixed NHS and private practice, offering all aspects of dentistry. One of our associates has a Diploma in Implant Dentistry and an opportunity to see these been placed would be offered. As part of the larger Together Dental group of practices, there are additional opportunities for training and working with a broader clinical team. The busy practice is conveniently located on the high street in Broxbourne. A six minute walk from the train station, it offers a car park and a shop front location on the ground floor, with disabled access. There is a small kitchenette used as a staff room.
It’s a great place to work, with an experienced and friendly team.
The Area: Broxbourne is situated 3.5 miles north of the M25 junction 25 and is on the Cambridge to London Liverpool Street line. The village setting has expanded in the last few years to merge with the pleasant town of Hoddesdon which has all the amenities such as a post office, banks and supermarkets. Broxbourne is predominantly a middle class area, treating families, thereby allowing for all aspects of dentistry. It is close to Brookfield Centre allowing for shopping as it has good selection of shops. The area is green enough to appear as though it is in the country and yet really close to London. It has shopping, gyms, and the popular town of Hertford is only 15 minutes away by car for a night out.
Other Points of Interest: The other dentists in the practice all have an interest in teaching, with the other practice owner placing implants and teaching as well, whilst some of the other practitioners have attained their MsC in restorative and teach as well.
