David Paterson - Calm & Caring Dental Nurse
Hi, I’m David Paterson and I’ve been working at Cavendish Dental Practice since November 2008. When I first started working here I had no experience of Dentistry; now I help to integrate the Foundation Dentists and train the new nurses. As well as my Dental qualification, I have a qualification in Dental Radiography which means I can take and analyse radiographs. This proves that with hard work and application, anyone can do anything they want to!
Outside of work I spend my time watching television programmes and playing video games. I’m pretty easy-going but I prefer action films, sci-fi series and most sports, in particular football and NFL. I also really enjoy my food and can spend all day thinking about it, whether it be cooking for myself or visiting restaurants to try all different types of cuisine. This comes in handy as I am using my holidays from work to travel the world.
