Meet Our Dental Team in Bournemouth
Dr Monika Steindl – Principal Dentist, Practice Owner
GDC number 102536
I qualified in 1997 as a dentist having trained for 6 years at Medical Faculty of Masaryk University, Brno – the second largest university in Czech Republic. I started my professional career as an Assistant Teacher of medical undergraduates at the Department of maxillo-facial surgery before progressing onto the Department of Conservative and Child Dentistry at the most prestigious Faculty Hospital Bratislava in the capital city of Slovak Republic. After a short break due to maternity leave in 2004 I opened my successful private dental practice.
In 2006 I relocated to United Kingdom, and I worked as an associate dentist in Southampton, Salisbury and Sturminster Newton and also for Hampshire Emergency Dental Services.
Dentistry is my passion and hobby and from early stage of my carrier I have developed a very deep interest in cosmetic dentistry and later on in facial rejuvenation.
I have taken part in numerous dental courses led by some of the world′s most renowned dentists. In January 2015 I successfully completed a one year course at Tipton Dental Academy Manchester and was awarded with Certificate in Aesthetic Dentistry. I currently continue studying towards diploma in Aesthetic Dentistry at the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry.
I am multilingual, my first language being Hungarian and I also speak English, Slovak, Czech.
My patients have always appreciated my attentive and caring attitude, and I have always been popular with nervous patients due to my relaxed friendly and gentle chair side manner. I have been frequently accused of being a perfectionist at my work. In my free time enjoy keeping fit, reading, traveling and spending lots of time with my son and husband.
Debbie Pickering – Receptionist / Practice Co-ordinator
Since starting my very first job, Reception has always been my passion. I joined Finest Smile in May 2013 after relocating to Bournemouth and was quickly promoted to Practice Co-ordinator. I now manage Reception and all the organisational tasks which ensure the smooth day-to-day running of our practice. I am a very friendly person, with good empathy and listening skills. I enjoy every aspect of my job, especially helping nervous, worried and anxious patients before their appointments. Outside of work I enjoy exploring the New Forest and spending time at the beach with my children.
Dr Octavian Moldovan – Dentist with special interest in Endodontics
GDC number 111549
Octavian is currently enrolled in a 3-5 year MSc Endodontic study program at the University of Warwick in Coventry, working towards Master of Science in Endodontics degree.
He has been working with Dental Operating Microscope since 2012 and is using the latest techniques and procedures and he is striving to deliver consistently high quality endodontic results for all the patients you kindly refer.
Octavian graduated from The University of Dental Medicine in Bucharest in 2001. After successfully running his own private practice in hometown he relocated to England in 2007 where he started working as a general dental practitioner.
His passion was always the restorative part of dentistry but soon he developed a very keen interest in Root Canal treatment procedures and the restoration of broken down teeth. He is inclined to be very explicative in communication, patient oriented, calm and empathetic with patients. Being confident and reassuring with his treatment procedures made him a consistently successful teeth saviour for a number of years.
