Madeleine Gilkes - National Dental Care

Madeleine Gilkes

Oral Health Therapist  |  BOH (Adel)

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.
