Julie Rothwell

Five Minutes with Julie Rothwell, RDH. Dental Hygienist

 

1. Where did you start your Hygienist Career?

My Dental journey began in 2013 when I moved from my homeplace in Clonegal to Cork City to train as Dental Nurse in Cork University Dental School and Hospital.

In my years in CUDSH I worked in all areas of dentistry including: the Central Sterile Services Department, Orthodontics, Periodontics, Restorative, Paediatrics, Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine and Dental Theatre. I was lucky enough to work there as both a student and staff member.

From my first year as a Dental Nurse I knew that becoming a Dental Hygienist was the next career step I wished to take. I was eager to become more ‘hands on’ in my career as I love interacting and caring for patients. I worked hard to gain a place in the Dental Hygiene course in University College Cork and thankfully, I was successful.

 

2. What do you enjoy most about Dental Hygiene?

My favourite part of being a Hygienist is educating my patients on how to care for their teeth in a way that they can incorporate into their lifestyle. Seeing how little alterations in their oral hygiene regime can really change their smile and oral health is a great pleasure for me.

I love the ‘hands on’ side of this career but my job isn’t just about cleaning teeth. This is just one small part. Being able to make patients feel at ease and working together to accomplish their oral health goals is what I always aim to achieve.

 

3. What have you done to improve your skills and knowledge?

I have completed a Dental Nursing and Dental Radiography course. Attended professional development seminars for Dental Nurses & Dental Hygienists. I have my BLS (basic life support) up to date. Certificates in various dental related courses.

 

4. Can you explain some more about Oral Hygiene information?

Oral hygiene information consists of:

    • Explanations of the causes of dental decay and gum disease and how to prevent these health problems occurring.
    • Toothbrush and interdental aid recommendations.
    • Brushing techniques demonstrations.
    • Toothpaste and mouth rinse advice.

 

5. Why should I use interdental aids?

As most people are aware, dental plaque is the fundamental cause of both dental decay and gum disease. But only 60% of dental plaque is removed from tooth brushing alone! So, to remove the other 40% we need to use interdental aids. Depending on your teeth there is a variety of products you can use to remove plaque from between your teeth. If the plaque is left to accumulate there it will harden into harmful tartar. This can lead to decay, gum inflammation and eventual tooth loss.

 

6. What is your Top Tip for oral health?

My Top Tip!

Keep your interdental aids always somewhere handy and nearby. Doesn’t have to be done in a bathroom! I find keeping flossers in the kitchen handy for cleaning after meals.

 

7. What do you do in your spare time?

Outside of work my hobbies consist of makeup artistry, arts & crafts, gardening and travel. I have even completed an ITEC level certificate in Makeup in 2016 in Cork College of Commerce. Whenever I get the opportunity, I love exploring new places. Whether it’s in Ireland or abroad I’m always adding to my bucket list of places to visit.

Dr. Bishoy Wanis

 

Where did you start your dentistry career, Bishoy?

 

 

I started my dental career in New Zealand as an Oral Health Therapist (Dental Therapist and Dental Hygienist). I worked as a therapist for just over 3 years, and that clinical experience in dentistry is what made me realise that my true passion does lie within this field and made me pursue further studies to become a dentist.

 

 

What do you enjoy most about dentistry and how do you spend your spare time?

 

 

What I love about dentistry is how life changing the best quality dental care can make to my patients lives and confidence, especially if I have provided their care! The biggest reward for me is the smile of a satisfied patient leaving the clinic happy!

When I am not practicing dentistry, I enjoy playing video games, working out at the gym, reading a bit of dental literature, and having some social drinks with friends.

 

 

What is the last thing you have done to improve your skills/knowledge?

 

 

In this field it’s very important to keep up to date with the literature as technology and treatment modalities are constantly changing and updating. I attend online webinars regularly and especially during the Covid-19 pandemic I have had a great opportunity to attend several online webinars and conferences. In 2019, I also attended a course (both theoretical as well as practical) on advanced prosthodontic treatment planning for crowns, bridges, and veneers.

 

 

Why is the routine dental health check so important?

 

 

There is a saying that goes “the oral cavity is the window to a person’s health” which I believe is very true, as several systemic diseases can manifest in the mouth (cancers, Diabetes Mellitus, even heart issues). Good maintenance of overall health and having regular dental health checks can be a turning point for any individual suffering from chronic diseases like Diabetes Mellitus and help them have more control over these health issues. Certain conditions can be diagnosed early during the routine screening that your dentist performs during a dental health check who will refer you to your doctor for further investigating if necessary. So, we don’t just check the health of your teeth and gums, but we also want to make sure you are enjoying a healthy+++ quality of life!

 

 

Why are my gums bleeding?

 

 

Many people suffer from bleeding gums for a very common reason: Gingivitis caused by dental plaque bacteria accumulating on teeth and gums. Almost anyone and everyone suffers from gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) at some stage in their life, and although it does not cause any pain to the point where seeking dental care becomes urgent, it can slowly make the gums weaker and erode the bone holding teeth firm (advanced gum inflammation, aka Periodontitis) and that can affect how long the teeth remain in the mouth as well. This is why it is very important to brush your teeth twice daily and floss at least once daily to remove plaque deposits in order to ensure that we not only maintain good health of our teeth from decay, but also from gum disease!

 

What is your top tip for oral health?

 

Brush and floss your teeth daily! It can make a huge difference in your daily life having a fresh breath, a healthy smile, and definitely need some good back teeth if you enjoy having a good steak every now and then like myself!
