After graduating from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Dental Science (Honours) in 1988, I travelled overseas, living, studying and working in the UK and Germany. I have been the team dentist of many of Australiaâ€™s premier sporting teams, including the Australian Rugby Union Wallabies, the Queensland Reds Rugby Union team, Brisbane Broncos Rugby League team and the Queensland Reds Rugby Union College. I have also cared for players from the Australian Cricket team, Queensland Bulls Cricket team and touring International Rugby teams. I am currently a member of the Australian Dental Association, the Federation of Dentistry International, the Prosthodontic Society of Australia, the Aesthetic Dental Society, the Implant Society, the Cadmus Study Group and am a Fellow of the Academy of Sports Dentistry. I am dually registered with the Dental Board of Australia and the General Dental Council of the United Kingdom. On top of this, I am the founder of Algester Dental and our primary dentist. I am married and have three children, who keep me very busy on my days off!
I obtained a Bachelor in Dental Science in 2004 from one of the most renowned universities in Brazil the Universidad Federal de Santa Maria. I gained six yearsâ€™ experience in a private practice in Brazil, before moving to Bendigo in Victoria in 2010 with my husband. I practiced at the Bendigo Health Hospital until 2013, and I joined the Algester Dental team in 2014. I am currently a member of the Australian Dental Association and attend Continuing Professional courses.
I graduated from the University of Queensland in 2012 with a Bachelor of Oral Health. Since then, I have gained valuable experience working as an oral health therapist in a busy rural dental practice at Ayr, in North Queensland. This enabled me to attend to the needs of a large variety of patients focusing on preventative care and treatment/management of gum disease. I enjoy exercise and going to the gym whilst also becoming more accomplished in playing modern piano and guitar.
Joshua studied dentistry at the University of Queensland. As a part of his training, he spent time in Rockhampton and Toowoomba treating public patients under solid mentorship before graduating in 2016 with honours. He then moved to Tamworth to work at a reputable private practice and has gained valuable experience, further honing his skills in general dentistry before returning to his hometown Brisbane and happily joining the NDC Algester team. Joshua continues to expand his knowledge by regularly attending professional education courses and provides care tailored to your needs. He takes great pride in his gentle approach and will do his best to put nervous patients at ease. He enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and is a member of the Australian Dental Association and Australian Society of Endodontology.
| BAppSc (Oral Health)
I have been involved in the dental industry for many years before graduating from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Applied Health Science in Oral Health. I pride myself in providing friendly and comfortable treatment for my patients. I believe that the preventive side of dentistry is so important and my main focus is to take time with each patient to help them improve and maintain their teeth for life. In my spare time I enjoy boating, yoga and spending time with family and friends.
