Dr Maheer has always been technically driven. He enjoyed challenging hands-on pursuits whilst growing up. When it became time to decide what to study, he consulted family, friends and dental professionals he was under the care of as to the career to pursue.

It became clear that dentistry was a field suited to my strengths and interests. It also provided day-to-day challenges that will help me grow and develop as a person and clinician.

Dr Kristyna

Dr Kristyna Englova, Dentist

Kristyna was inspired to embark on a career in dentistry due to the influence of her great-grandfather.

He was a dentist during World War II, and a great person who was admired by the community in his small town.

What Kristyna finds most fulfilling about being a dentist is doing high-quality work and seeing smiles on the faces of her patients.

Jennifer Long, Oral Health Therapist

Jen joins the Diamond Smiles Dental team with a passion for helping patients, and we couldn’t be happier to have her. She began her journey into the dental industry initially seeking a career that would challenge her technical ability as well as her creative talent—the best of both worlds came together in oral health therapy.

What Jen loves most about her profession is that it requires scientific skill alongside inventive thinking. She considers herself lucky to be able to help so many patients each and every day, restoring confidence and smiles.

Jen obtained her Bachelors of Oral Health Therapy from Curtin University in 2013. Every since, she’s enjoyed developing custom care plans for her patients and helping them to understand the importance of oral health prevention.

Aime Nice, Dental Hygienist

Aime Nice, Dental Hygienist

From a young age, Aime was fascinated with teeth. “My mum was a dental nurse and I loved hearing her stories about what she had seen throughout the day.” Aime learned that every day could be different and you would always be learning something interesting.

Aime became a dental nurse at 16 but knew she wanted to learn more. At 18, she left the Island of Orkney, where she lived for 14 years, and moved to mainland Scotland to pursue her dreams. In 2012, Aime graduated with distinction from the University of Highlands and Islands with a BSc in Oral Health Science. The school was brand new, and she was in the second intake of students. Aime also seeks opportunities to take continuing education courses.

In her spare time, Aime enjoys spending time with her husband and Blue Staffy, Harley. They can often be found outside enjoying the beautiful Australian sunshine, whether that be down the local beach or one of our fine WA wineries. She also loves to spend time with her friends.

Aime is also an avid reader and podcast listener. Anything about personal growth development will have her hooked. She also loves paint pouring and experimenting with new recipes.
