Bryony completed her Certificate IV in Dental Nursing in the Western Australian Institute of Further Studies (WAIFS) before securing a job at a General Practice.
Later on, Bryony moved to Brighton Beach Dental, where she worked for about three years. Before joining Oasis Orthodontics, she worked at another dental office where she took on the role of working with a General Dentist.
Bryony has since progressed into orthodontics and has also worked alongside an oral surgeon and a periodontist.
Bryony also worked with three specialists and has experience around placing implants. Her role was dental nursing and treatment coordinating, but it is mainly the latter now with Dr Hopkins. She enjoys showing patients what their treatment will be like. She is also responsible for showing insurance options and quotes, along with the available payment plans.
Working at Kingsley Orthodontics
Bryony is a familiar figure that calmly explains what will happen during the treatment. She wants all patients to look forward to the procedure.
Working at both Kingsley and Oasis Orthodontics allows her to strengthen her relationship with the patients. She also admires everyone on the team. More importantly, professionals who are hired are those that will fit well with the rest of the staff.
Bryony’s Best Qualities
Bryony is known for her patience, especially with those requiring treatment. She makes sure they are calm and stress-free before they sit for the procedure. It is important for her to make sure they are less nervous and just trust the process.
She also loves being a part of an efficient arrangement and routine. When something has to be set up, cleaned, or restocked, she wants it to be in order before any procedure. Being organised is not only for the company but also for the patients. It sends a positive message to them because shuffling around is often eliminated. At the same time, team frustration is also reduced. This way, the main focus is on the needs of the patients.
Bryony is someone who likes to get everything started and prepared at the beginning of the day. Organisation is essential because it is the key to running things smoother with everyone knowing what their jobs entail.

Bryony has seen a lot of improvements. The prevailing concern now is to make sure that all patients are more comfortable. Some technological advancements, such as 3D scanning, are geared towards such a goal.
For instance, in the case of scanners, they are less complicated than moulds, which take a lot of time. Plus, patients often complain about the discomfort associated with these sticky moulds. With 3D scanning, all those unpleasantness can be eliminated. Everything is much easier with the use of digital products.
Invisalign and Spark are other options for clear aligners, too. Instead of wires and metal, these aligners can change a person’s smile without being too obvious. When given to the right candidate, they can provide incredible results.
