We sat down with Principal Dentist Dr Tarini Singh to talk all things teeth! 🦷 She looks after our Child and Adolescent Oral Health Services and is passionate about young gums.

"I love working with children, they have a natural curiosity and enthusiasm to learn - it's a privilege to be involved in this part of their development," she said.

"It's wonderful knowing I can be the first person to mould positive dental experiences, we all know most adults hate going to the dentist!

"When children smile more often it can improve their confidence in different aspects of their life and can help to shape their future. I love being able to make their smile as big and as beautiful as can be." 😁

Today we put a spotlight on one of our new doctors! 👋 28-year-old Matthew started studying Veterinary Sciences and shared with us how he ended up as one of RBWH's 2021 interns.

“I was in my final year of studying Veterinary Sciences when I had an allergic reaction to a cat which landed me in hospital. It was here that I witnessed how great our health system is in Australia and how well supported our hospitals are. As soon as I got the idea of studying medicine in my head, my mind was made up," he said.

“I can’t wait to make the transition from student to intern so I can take on some responsibilities and learn from medical industry leaders.

“After my intern year, I’d love to specialise in general surgery or trauma. I like the pragmatic nature of surgery and the fact that you can be active and use your hands.”

Join us in welcoming Matthew to the team! 👏🏥

Have you spotted Barb at RBWH? 😊 After working in hospital laundries since 1980 Barb scored her dream job in 2004 as one of our amazing gardeners!

She's had a passion for gardening ever since she was a child, inspired by her grandma who she keeps in her thoughts as she plants Australian natives around campus.

"It's important to me to make sure the front of the hospital is warm and welcoming, I like making the garden beautiful for our patients to enjoy," she said.

"I get a lot of feedback from patients! Some good, some bad, I always take on what they say because this is here for them and I want to make it special."

Barb is one of the many staff at Metro North who impact patient experiences every day without ever entering a ward. #ShoutoutSatuday 👏🌳🐝
