Hello, my name is Yana and I would like to welcome you to my personal Dentistry Blog. I’m a fourth-year international dentistry student from Canada, currently living and studying in Australia.
The decision of becoming a dentist did NOT come easy to me. In the hopes of providing a better future for my family, I had to make a lot of sacrifices including leaving behind everything and everyone that is dearest to me. Luckily my family has been very supportive of my decision and modern technology has made it easier through video calls and messages. As you can imagine, leaving the comfort of my home and coming to a new country called Australia all alone was a terrifying decision filled with uncertainty nevertheless, I have managed to settle in, make friends and succeed in my studies. I think overall, this journey has made me into a stronger and more confident woman than when I first started.
WHY I STARTED THIS BLOG
I decided to start this blog in order to make a positive impact on other people’s lives by sharing my knowledge on oral health. I feel like there is a lot of conflicting information on dentistry topics online that can be confusing to a lot of readers, therefore, I am dedicated to providing the most accurate and up to date information for my readers.
SOME OF THE DENTISTRY TOPICS I PLAN ON COVERING:
- how to take care of your and your little one’s oral health
- good dental practices for prevention of disease
- facts on teeth whitening and cosmetic dentistry
- answer any lingering questions
- and MORE!
FOCUS ON PREVENTATIVE DENTISTRY
I know that the aesthetics of teeth can have a great impact on a person’s quality of life. An improvement in a person’s smile can mean the difference between feeling shy and insecure to feeling confident. I also know that going to the dentist can be SCARY and NO FUN and the majority of people will try to avoid visits to the dentist unless it is an emergency. However, the best way to truly minimize visits to the dentist, is by taking care of your teeth from the get-go that is why my blog will mainly focus on preventative dentistry.
Lastly, I would like to create a safe environment on this site for people to share their personal experiences and to feel safe when asking questions. Therefore, any abusive or insulting behavior in comments etc. will not be tolerated.
THANK YOU for visiting and enjoy the rest of your time browsing through my website.
