Your Team - National Dental Care

Dr. Dale Le Poidevin

Dentist  |  BDS (Adel)

I graduated BDS (Adel) in 1979 and owned my Practice in Port Augusta for 35 years. I practice all facets of General Dentistry with a keen interest in building up the worn dentition.

Dr. Lily Furniss

Dentist  |  BDS (Qld)

I earned my undergraduate degree in dentistry from the Griffith University, School of Dentistry. I  practice all facets of dentistry and thoroughly enjoy wisdom tooth removal and aesthetic restoration of teeth with modern techniques. I particularly enjoy working in our high-end surgery that allows me to get to know my patients, helping them relax and have a positive experience. Away from the demands of dentistry I enjoy spending time with friends and family, hiking, horse riding and am trying my hand at golf.

Dr Clare McCusker

Dentist  |  BDS (Gla)

I graduated from the University of Glasgow with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 2013 and have worked in both community and general practice since.

Since graduating I have worked to develop my dental skills and knowledge, participating in continuing professional development courses and I passed the MFDS exam to join the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow in 2015.

Dentistry is a profession that I enjoy. I like the actual dentistry itself, particularly restorative dentistry and endodontics, and I appreciate the opportunities it has for career long learning. One of the aspects of dentistry I enjoy most is getting to know my patients, working with them to help them achieve the beautiful and healthy smile they desire in an environment which I hope they find friendly and as comfortable as possible!

I first had the opportunity to visit Australia when I carried out a placement with the RFDS as part of my degree and it is a country I hope to explore more of while living here. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling and exploring my surroundings.

I graduated from the University of Adelaide in 2011. Since then I’ve been working in private practices. I offer all aspects of general dentistry and enjoy cosmetic work, and am very good at calming nervous patients. The things that excite me in dentistry are that I get to know my patients, to do delicate hands-on work that will make a difference to their oral health and general happiness, and there are plenty of opportunities to continually advance my skills.

When I’m not at the dental practice, I work as a dental tutor, translator, and coach.


Kym Nguyen

Oral Health Therapist  |  BOH (Adel)

I graduated from the University of Adelaide with a Bachelor of Oral Health degree. My degree allows me to provide thorough hygiene treatment for all ages and also dental treatment for children up to the age of 18 years old. I especially love to see patients as young as 18 months old to give them a wonderful and positive first dental experience. My goal is to show patients, young and old, that dental visits can be enjoyable, or less daunting than you expect. One of the most rewards aspects in dentistry for me is to assist patients with dental anxiety/phobias help overcome their fears. I am passionate about motivating patients to maintain their oral health and to understand the importance of dental hygiene, while developing a friendly relationship.

I also have a special interest in tooth whitening and have been trained in multiple types of tooth whitening to deliver safe and comfortable treatment for every patient. When I am not working at the clinic, I like to bake and spend time with my dogs.

Dr Rachael McCusker


Graduated from University of Glasgow in 2014.

Recently completed post-grad examinations and achieved my MFDS qualification, I enjoy learning and developing my skills so I am able to provide my patients with the best care possible.

I have experience working in general dental practice treating a wide range of patients with varying dental needs. I have a particular interest in restorative dentistry providing the optimum restorative solution to the patient’s requirements and expectations. I also enjoy endodontics and oral surgery, I find this work very rewarding as it often allows me to relieve my patients of painful toothache.

Outside of dentistry I am a keen amateur baker but not so great cook. I also enjoy the outdoors and my hobbies include skiing, windsurfing and hiking.
