Dr. Ian Scholes
Dentist | BDSc (Qld)
I was educated at the University of Queensland and graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Science in 1983. I worked in a private London practice for 20 years before returning to Australia in 2005 to join National Dental Care in Tweed. I am enjoying working at my current practice, and work hard to ensure the overall health and wellbeing of my patients is maintained at the clinic and at home. I have known and loved the Tweed area for an amazing 45 years, and spend as much time as I can fishing, fossicking, and gardening in the area.
Dr. Taleah North Wiedeman
Dentist | BaOH (DS) Grad Dip (Griffith)
I was born and raised in Tweed Heads, and have a strong connection to the area. I have studied at multiple education facilities, completing a Bachelor of Medical Radiation Science (Diagnostic Radiography) at the University of Newcastle in 2001, a Graduate Diploma in MRS Ct Applications, Medical radiation science, CT at Charles Sturt University In 2005, and a Bachelor of Oral Health (Dental Science) and Graduate Diploma in Dental Science at Griffith University in 2010.
I spent 15 years as a radiographer before practicing dentistry. During this time my workplaces included NSW Health and Tweed Hospital. I love the health industry, and enjoy working with people and their teeth. I like all aspects of dentistry, but particularly preventative dentistry, oral surgery, and cosmetic dentistry. I love working in a great family practice with a heavy belief in prevention and realistic treatment planning. I work hard to present a gentle and understanding manner, striving to be a good listener and having faith in my patients.
In my spare time, I enjoy surfing, scuba diving, and just going to the beach with my two boys.
Oral Health Therapist | BaOHT (Griffith)
I was born and raised in the Tweed Heads area, and consider myself quite the local! I have been in the dental industry for more than a decade, working as a dental assistant before completing a Bachelor degree in Oral Health Therapy at Griffith University in 2008. I have been on the National Dental Care team at the Tweed practice since 2009.
Keeping gums healthy is my forte! I love to see the transition of my patient’s oral health, especially children. I love trying to make children have a fun time at the dentist. In my spare time, I enjoy keeping fit and captaining the Pottsville women’s soccer team.
