Dentist Gov Malhi chose to work at Smile Together because working in a service that does so much for patients both in and outside the surgery environment was the perfect place for him to develop his clinical and non-clinical skills, and he “loved every minute of being here, feeling a really strong sense of family almost as soon as I started”.
As an early-career dentist working in our urgent and emergency service Gov was treated those patients most in need and being able to perform minor oral surgery with the assistance of other experienced colleagues really helped his confidence grow.
He also represented Smile Together at national dentistry shows, supporting clinical recruitment and helping the company grow as much as possible in order to help local people in Cornwall who so often struggle to access dentistry, and in Gov’s view “what Smile Together is doing is really helping to improve that”.
One of his favourite things about Smile Together is that we are employee-owned so all colleagues have a say. According to Gov: “I’ve been able to voice my ideas and opinions knowing that someone is going to listen and take them on board”.
