Lama Zein qualified from the University of Central Lancashire in 2015 and joined Rodericks Dental as a Regional Dentist in September 2016.

I absolutely love my role as a Regional Dentist. It entails working in different practices and covering for dentists when they are sick or on annual leave. This provides great experience working with different people and a different dynamic of patients each time. It also helps you to identify what you like most and what you find most challenging, developing you as a practitioner and giving you the confidence to work in many different circumstances.

I have been very lucky in the sense that I have been able to remain with one practice for a longer period of time as well, helping me settle into the profession.

Rodericks has been even more supportive than I could have hoped for. When I had to relocate, they were very understanding and accommodating, and enabled me to continue my role in the new area.

As a young dentist is it crucial to have a goal in mind, because it makes you work harder and gives your career direction. An employer that is supportive, provides training courses and a network of more experienced dentists makes your journey more exciting and achievable. Rodericks certainly does this.

Based on my own experience, I think it’s really important for newly qualified dentists to work on communication skills! It’s also beneficial to develop as many new skills as possible and to not be afraid to ask for help. If you do not face your fears and challenge your weaknesses, you will not progress.

As an undergraduate, the word ‘corporate’ can be a concern. However, I believe that because Rodericks is actually run by dentists, they can relate to the difficulties and challenges that you face in practice. Now I understand why it is the ‘corporate with a difference’.
