Hayley Smith, ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development

Hayley has been involved in a number of ADA NSW Red Cross Clinics as well as the ADHF Dental Rescue Day held at St Leonards. Her role is to help with the overall proceedings of the day, ensuring the volunteer dental team is providing the best possible care to patients. Responsibilities include re-processing of instruments and processing x-rays. “It is often a completely new working environment for the volunteer dentists and dental assistant, so I help them locate particular instruments or materials to keep the day running as efficiently as possible,” Hayley said. “It’s a tremendously rewarding experience working on a charity day. I love seeing how happy the patients are when leaving the clinic. I absolutely encourage anyone considering volunteering to get involved, the other volunteers you will meet on the day makes it worthwhile in itself!”
