Clemmie Mellor - National Dental Care

Dr. Clemmie Mellor

Dentist  |  BDS (ADEL).

I was born and raised in the Adelaide Hills, and graduated from the University of Adelaide in 2011 with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery. Since then, I have furthered my studies by taking various Continuing Professional Development Courses, including training in Invisalign. For the first 18 months of my career I worked at Mount Barker Dental Care and moved to South Terrace Dental Care after this, where I have been ever since. I have wanted to be a dentist since I was seven. I was interested in working with my hands, with people and in a constantly challenging and developing industry which allowed flexibility throughout life.
I enjoy both the artistic and scientific/medical aspects of dentistry and have always been excited by the opportunity to travel with work and to use my skills for volunteer work. I enjoy working in Endodontics, doing root canals—it is satisfying to be able to relieve people of large amounts of pain. I also find my work with Invisalign very enjoyable, and like to work with kids. I enjoy the people I work with and the respect and support I have always received here. We are lucky to have a whole lot of lovely patients as well. I work hard to minimise pain and maximise perfection wherever possible. The patient’s goals and comfort are my chief concern.

In my spare time, I like to travel, to keep active and to spend time with my wonderful family and friends. I speak some French and was fluent in Auslan (Australian sign language)—although both of these skills are now in need of further attention! I work with the Royal Flying Doctor Service at least once a year to provide dental care to remote South Australian locations with some students from the University of Adelaide BDS program. I am also a mentor for an indigenous medical/dental students group (FAIMM). I am a member of the Recent Graduates Committee for the Australian Dental Association, South Australian branch and am also an ADA mentor for other students in the BDS program here in Adelaide.
