Dentist | MD BDS, FRACDS
I am a dual trained dentist with both a medical and dental degree. I obtained my Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Adelaide in 2009, and went on to obtain Fellowship at the Royal Australian College of Dental Surgeons in 2013 and a Doctor of Medicine from Flinders University in 2017.I worked as a Doctor at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and Royal Melbourne Hospital, and have held a teaching position at the University of Melbourne Dental School. I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry with a special interest in oral surgery, dental implants, cosmetic dentistry and treating patients with dental anxiety. In addition, I am also an accredited Invisalign provider. Outside of medicine and dentistry, I enjoy volunteer work, having undertaken volunteer work in Ghana, Northern Territory and Cambodia where I provided education, dental care and health awareness to under privileged members of the community. I am also the author/co-author of several research papers surrounding Advanced Oral Surgery.
Hygienist | Assoc Dip DH
I complete an Associate Diploma in Dental Hygiene at Adelaide TAFE in 1979, and have been working at West Lakes Dental ever since. I have continued to further my education in this time, regularly attending association meetings, seminars, and taking Continuing Professional Development courses. I knew I wanted to be a dental assistant since I was 16 years old, and an interest in dental hygiene developed from there. I enjoy my current practice, thanks to a friendly team who get along well with one another. I love the long-standing regular patients we receive, and feel I have really gotten to know them and their families over the years. Our surgery also has a fantastic view! In my spare time I like to keep fit, spend time at my ‘shack’, travel, read, and be with family and friends.
Oral Health Therapist | BOH
I graduated from the University of Adelaide in 2012, with a Bachelor of Oral Health. Since then, I have regularly attended professional development lectures and courses to add to my education. I have been in practice working full time since graduating. During this time, I have worked at West Lakes Dental, Walkerville Dental and Victoria Park Dental Specialists providing orthodontic care. I enjoy children’s dentistry as I believe the first few years of a childs dental life are incredibly important and I like being a part of a positive experience. West Lakes Dental is a friendly, warm practice that has an incredibly passionate team in which I am proud to be part of. I am passionate about my job and provide high quality dental care in a calm, friendly dental setting. I care about my patients—not just their mouths. I am a member of the Australian and New Zealand Pediatric Dental Society, and make time to participate in the National Dental Foundations Dental Rescue Days—a charitable organisation that facilitates the provision of pro bono dental treatment to those in our society who cannot access timely dental care. I was lucky enough to be selected to fly with the RFDS to Marlee to provide dental care to locals who could not access dental care in 2012. My family have a history of working in dentistry; my father is a dentist, and instilled in me a similar enthusiasm. My interests outside of dentistry include travel, cooking and music - I have had a passion for the piano since I was 5.
Hygienist | BOH
I graduated from the Gilles Plains College of TAFE in 1986 with a Diploma of Dental Hygiene. Since then, I have worked with many different dentists including Dr Durgood in Renmark, Dr Stanbeuicius, Dr Vagrona, and locum work with Dr Hobby and Dr Thomas. As a school student I always had an interest in science and health, and this led to an interest in dentistry in later years. I practice general dentistry and spend the majority of my time in a clinical setting. I am pleased to be part of a dental practice which maintains a high standard of dental care, and keeps up to date with the latest technology for our patients to benefit from. I work hard to be gentle yet thorough, and enjoy chatting with patients to make them feel comfortable. In my spare time, I keep fit through walking and paddle boarding, and enjoy dining out at Adelaide’s many wonderful restaurants. I also have an interest in growing fruit and vegetables, although not with a high degree of skill! I devote time to surf life saving with the Henley Community Garden.
