Eurodental Turns 20

Dentist Agnieszka Sicińska, medical director of the Eurodental Dentistry Center, talks to Bożenna Osucha.

You have been head of Eurodental for 20 years, working simultaneously as a dentist and a manager. How do you manage to reconcile the two jobs?
They are complementary functions. In business I have to have both feet on the ground, to analyze and calculate. It's the same in my work with patients. Every patient expects honest and well performed treatment. At the same time, when I see patients, often stressed and in pain, I use such qualities as a cheerful disposition, a sense of humor and an open nature. Mutual trust between a doctor and their patient is essential in the case of lengthy and complicated treatments.

Is it hard to maintain such a high position on the dentistry market?
The doctor's profession requires constant studying and expanding one's knowledge. Changes in dentistry occur all the time, the materials we work with are improved, the equipment is more and more advanced and we simply cannot afford not to keep up. That's why we work according to the ISO 9001:200 quality management standard. The number of patients is proof of our stable position; many of them have been with us from the start of our business.

We could see the effects of your work recently in the Polish version of the program Make Me Beautiful on TV. What kind of challenge was this and how did it affect the clinic's work?
I'm very proud that Eurodental was chosen as one of the program's partners. It was really hard work, performed under great pressure. The entire treatment was observed by cameras. It was a huge test for our team. All the treatment was carried out within a short space of time, in unusual conditions, and the final result had to be of the highest standard.

How do you combine you your responsibilities as a manager with the role of a wife and mother of two sons?
When I review those 20 years, my greatest thanks should really go to my now 22-year-old son. He's almost the same age as Eurodental. Today I know that if I had had problems raising my son, I would have given up my career. I was lucky, though, and Ja¶ was no problem at all. Today he's a student in the United States. My younger son was born in the United States and is seven years old. Thanks to Marek, I remain mentally young. Conversations with a smart seven-year-old can be quite challenging. I always try to find as much time as possible for my family. My husband Michał is a great help, assisting me in many professional matters and around the home. I can say honestly that despite the ups and downs of everyday life, I am a person with a happy family.

What should we wish you for Eurodental's upcoming 20th birthday?
My first wish, always the top wish, is good health. My second wish is continued development for the company, so that we can celebrate successive jubilees with satisfaction. My third wish, probably one I share with every manager, is for the day to be at least four hours longer.
