Tayside practices announce Scotland’s first digital scanning graduate training scheme
Having recently invested in £250,000-worth of 3D intra-oral digital scanning technology to revolutionise a range for dental treatments for patients, First Alba Healthcare has announced that it will be recruiting and training two recent dental graduates in the technology. The graduates will be based at First Alba Healthcare’s Forfar practice.
Introducing the state of the art Medit i700 and i500 scanners across its business has made First Alba Healthcare one of the most digitised dental practice in Scotland.
Commenting on the graduate training scheme, clinical director of First Alba, Dr Rami Sarraf said: “We’re delighted to be able to give something back to our industry at this time. The introduction of our specialist graduate training scheme in intra-oral scanning will give two graduates full time positions in our business.”
Dr Sarraf explained that he was utilising the talents of his associate, Dr Qais Toma who would deliver the graduate training.
“Dr Toma is a leading authority in the field and we are very fortunate to have him on board with this,” said Dr Sarraf. “We know that, over the pandemic, dental graduates have missed out on the crucial direct patient experience they gain within practices.”
Dr Rami Sarraf, together with his wife and fellow clinical director, Dr Ewa Plewa Sarraf, have been at the helm of First Alba Healthcare since 2009. Beginning with 1,600 registered patients, they now have around 40,000, a mix of NHS and private, and employ a team of forty five staff and associates.
