Patricia was born in Colombia. She finished school and headed off to qualify as a dentist at El Bosque University in Bogota in 2001. But she wanted to travel so, in 2007, Patricia was in Brisbane perfecting her English and studying to become a dental technician.
Patricia worked as a dental lab technician and as a dental assistant in Brisbane for a few years before returning to Colombia and continued practicing general dentistry there.
But the travel bug bit again and, by 2019, she was in Christchurch, working as a dental assistant.
Too cold there! So Patricia drove to Auckland and joined our office where she assists our dentists, especially with orthodontic, head pain, and snoring treatments.
In her spare time, she jogs, plays squash, and explores with her husband in their motorhome. We hope the travel bug won’t bite again, because Patricia is a valuable member of our team.
