We had the absolute pleasure in working with Sharna last week. She is by far the best temp we have ever worked with. Extremely professional, friendly, efficient, definitely knows her way around the dental surgery and is an excellent DA. Plus she travelled all the way from the Sunshine Coast to Brisbane with no complaints! We definitely wouldn't hesitate to use her services again should we find ourselves short staffed. Highly recommend Instant Dental Temps! Thanks Sharna, you're the best!

We have been using Instant Dental Temps for a few months now when short on staff. The service provided has been nothing less than fantastic. The Dental Assistants are professional, competent and both myself and my team love having them support our practice! Sharna is amazing in assisting with our needs and I would thoroughly recommend this her and the company to other practices! (I already have within the Bupa network😊) Thank you for your continued support! Kim, Bupa Dental Kawana ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Sharna in 1300 smiles. Over the last 5 years of my dentistry career in private practice, she’s one that I highly recommend. I’ve worked with and trained more than 20 dental assistants, and she is one that definitely stands out. She’s able to seamlessly coordinate, blend in, and assist in four-handed dentistry based on your style dentistry with ease without much guidance. Although I’ve only worked with her about 3 times, it’s almost as though I’ve worked with her for years. I practice almost all disciplines of complex dentistry including implants, indirect restorations - onlays/crowns/veneers/bridges, difficult extractions, etc (except orthodontics). Patients love her too because she has amazing chairside manners, great patient care, attention to details, etc. Highly recommended and looking forward to having Sharna and her team.

We had Sharna come and temp with our team last week at Bongaree Dental and I must say over the years we have had many Temp dental assistants fill in a day. None like Sharna, she was absolutely amazing!!! At ease with all of our team and no guidance was needed, Sharna jumped in as if she had worked with us for years. We are looking forward to having Sharna back working with us again soon. Bongaree Dental
