Dental Hygienist (UK)
Umm Suqeim Dental Clinic, Dubai
Jasmin Kavakeb graduated from Queen Mary University of London in 2003 with a BSc in Pharmaceutical Chemistry. Shortly after, she decided to pursue her true passion for Dental Hygiene and graduated from King’s College University in London with a Diploma in Dental Hygiene and Therapy during the year 2009.
Straight after graduation she ran her own pediatric clinic at King’s College Hospital at Denmark Hill, looking after children as well as adults under the NHS and the private sector in Belgravia and Harley Street clinics. She also worked directly with the head of periodontal health at Kings and has a keen interest in prevention over cure.
Jasmin went straight into teaching at King’s College University Hospital after graduation, where she gained her King’s Fellowship and completed her GCAP teachers training, having taught fellow Dental hygiene therapists for over 5 years before moving to Dubai. In 2016, Jasmin was asked to become an AEEDC dental conference speaker, discussing the control of teeth sensitivity and whitening.
Having moved to Dubai in 2014, Jasmin settled quickly and takes pride in her holistic and gentle approach. Her caring nature ensures her patients’ well-being, as well as creating a lovely environment for them to feel safe and happy.
Up, Close & Personal
What do you like most about your job?
I love being able to gain the patients trust and to enable them to take charge over their dental health and to ultimately see a positive outcome in their oral health.
How do you see the future of dentistry?
An amalgamation of prevention and regenerative dentistry; whereby research shows that stem cells can possibly be used to self-heal teeth in the near future.
What are your hobbies? What do you like to do outside of work?
As a devoted vegan, I love all animals and spend my time involving myself in all things animal related around town, including charity work. I also love working out as the weather in Dubai is perfect motivation!
What is the best advice you can give to your patients?
Trust me; I truly care, and I promise to never push you past your limits. I care about your experience and will make sure you get the best possible results and a feeling that you were happy you came.
