Oral Health Therapist | BOH (Melb)
I graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Oral Health, and have worked in General Dental and Orthodontic practice.
I am also an Orofacial Myologist, trained to look beyond the teeth at things like airways, tongue & lip ties and speech issues. I treat a range of Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders such as thumb sucking, tongue thrusts and other harmful oral habits.
As an Oral Health Therapist, I am dual qualified as a Dental Therapist and Hygienist. I complement the general dental team with refined skills in the area of gum health and children’s dentistry, and perform our popular in-chair Zoom whitening procedure.
I am passionate about building confidence in the dental setting from a young age and working with the muscles of the face and mouth to encourage ideal growth and development. My goal is to improve oral health through prevention, health promotion, and education to help my patients and their families develop the skills to maintain healthy mouths for life.
