Sarie Liebenberg

 

I’ve received my dental hygiene qualification from the University of the Witwatersrand (WITS) in South Africa. I’ve been working in the dental industry for more than 30 yrs. I’ve recently emigratedย to Ireland which is now my new home.ย I love people and I love dentistry. Being a dental hygienist, I get toย have the bestย of both worlds. I get to make a difference in peopleโ€™s lives andย be part of their journey through life. I am so fortunate to be appreciated for myย roleย in dentistry and society. Apart from my clinical work, I am super blessed to regularly get opportunities to lecture overseas and share my knowledge and experience in dentistry. I love teaching and value everyone who shows interest in gaining knowledge. One otherย highlightย ofย myย career is being the dentalย expert for a very successful online parenting company, called BabyYumYum.ย Iโ€™m a strong believer that we all get multiple opportunities in life. Some of us take these opportunities and others let it pass them by. I never say no to an opportunity to learn and grow. This often brings the thought in myย head: โ€œOh my word, how on earth am I going to do this!!!!!!!!โ€ But then it is too late to turn around and somehow; we always manage what we once thought was impossible! I’m looking forward to meeting all new patients and beingย part of their teeth journey. Making sure you have a beautiful smile, healthy teeth and gums and a fresh breath to give you the confidence you need.
