Ylenia (Leni) first qualified as a Dental Hygienist with Distinction from Cardiff University in 2019. After working for some time in Wales, she moved to England where she graduated with full marks as a Dental Therapist from the University of Essex.
Leni has an interest in understanding how socioeconomic and demographic factors impact on oral and dental health, for which she spends considerable time working as a Locum dental professional in different clinics and areas, both in and outside of London.
She firmly believes in her role as an active promoter of oral health and behavioural change, in order to prevent pathologies from arising in the first place. As a result, she believes a holistic approach should be applied when it comes to treating patients.
Awarded a Prize for Clinical Excellence from Cardiff University for her skills in Clinical Dentistry, Leni's friendly and reassuring demeanour have also proved effective in treating anxious and young patients successfully. In fact, having treated several nervous patients , Leni has decided to take a step forward in her education and qualify as an Inhalation Sedationist to provide maximum comfort to her patients.
As a Dental Therapist, she has an interest in dental prophylaxis, restorative and paediatric dentistry. She also carries out some procedures in relation to Invisalign treatments. Morally and ethically driven, Leni keeps unnecessary treatments to the minimum, strongly supporting the concept of conservative and preventative dentistry and working towards the establishment of a robust patient-clinician rapport.
Away from dentistry, Leni works as an Italian- English Interpreter of General Medicine. She also has a passion for ballet, travel and squirrels!
