Atheemah Albertus DipOH (UWC)
Atheemah received her Oral Hygiene training at University of the Western Cape and graduated in 2010. She then went on to work at dental practices in the Southern Suburbs and CBD and joined the Kromboom Dental team in 2014.
Atheemah works full-time at Kromboom Dental Centre and works closely with the Dental Team, carrying out individual programmes of prevention of periodontal disease (gum disease), caries (tooth decay) and orthodontic maintenance. She also assists with orthodontic procedures.
She enjoys her profession as a hygienist, educating her patients on how to take care of their teeth as well as the chance to get to know patients and their families on a more personal level. She especially enjoys the chance to see kids and help ensure they have a good dental experience so that they enjoy coming to the dentist and take pride in taking care of their smiles.
In 2018, in addition to her Oral Hygiene duties , Atheemah took on the role of Office Manager. She has grown with the practice. She started as an oral hygienist but proved to be an invaluable help to all in the office. Her experience as an Oral Hygienist makes her a great resource when explaining the necessary procedures and managing dental staff. Through all these experiences, Atheemah grew in her expertise and became our office manager.
Atheemah knows the “ins and outs” of the dental office and helps to keep systems in place so that the high standards are upheld at KDC and the day runs smoothly and on time. She wears many hats to ensure the upkeep of our busy dental practice.
She manages personnel by hiring, training, scheduling and ensures the practice is well-stocked with essential inventory. Her other important duties include evaluating staff performance, answering to patient complaints, checking cleanliness, and more. She enjoys working with her long-term team members who feel like family.
“As Office Manager, all my training and experience come into play! Working with such an amazing and dedicated team makes my job easy. Working closely with the dentists, oral hygienists, specialists, nurses, admin and practice management team helps me understand what it takes to be an even better dental practice!”
