Kreena Patel opens up about her love for endodontics, maintaining a work-life balance and why buying two pet kittens was the best decision she’s ever made.
In our latest podcast episode, we chat to Kreena Patel, a specialist in endodontics based in south London and Reading.
Coming from a family of dentists, she describes what it was like nursing for her father when she was a teenager and how this encouraged her to follow his footsteps.
From mentors to shadowing, she gives her top tips to young dentists looking to specialise in endodontics.
And with an Instagram page attracting more than 17k followers, she also talks us through why social media is a great tool to showcase and educate.
‘I think I’ve had mentors the whole way through,’ she says.
‘I can’t name one person who’s been my mentor the whole journey. I’ve been really lucky…all the way along I’ve had mentors. I also think it’s really important to have that and have someone you can talk to and who can push you to do better.’
