Tell us about yourself
I was born in Sydney, but spent my childhood growing up in Mackay, so I consider myself a Queenslander. I am a bit of a nerd, with big interests in movies and games.
When did you decide to become a dentist?
I decided that dentistry would be for me after doing work experience both at my local dentist, and at a hospital clinic in Morogoro, Tanzania. I have always been a creative person, so dentistry was the perfect mix of science and art for me.
What would you say is your dental philosophy?
To help patients regain confidence in their smile and in the health of their teeth. I also like to ensure that the dental visit is comfortable, and that patients leave feeling secure.
How do you keep up to date with techniques, technology and teachings?
Through attending online courses and participating with study groups.
As a dentist, what’s the best part of your day?
The best part of my day is when I can get a patient to smile, whether that’s through fixing up their teeth, getting them out of pain, or just cracking a good joke. It’s that part of the day which shows me that I am truly helping someone.
What is the one thing you want patients to know about your work?
That I take great pride in all my work, and will always ensure that patients are leaving with the best treatment possible.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I am always trying out new types of crafts, and have been mostly sewing my own clothes, as well as crocheting new blankets for myself. Otherwise, I am playing all sorts of video, board or card games, and mine and my partner’s goal is to put together the ultimate gaming room.
What is something people may not know about you?
That I love archery, and have taken an arrow to the knee (I still have the scar!).
What would you do if you weren’t a dentist?
My back-up plan if for some reason I found that dentistry wasn’t for me was to become an astrophysicist, as I love maths, as well as the stars.
