Before trading in pipettes, Petri dishes and microscopes for a mouth mirror and probe, I was an avid biomedical researcher, spending countless hours in the lab and completing my Master’s in Biomedical Science at the University of Auckland (NZ). As face-to-face communication and real-time problem solving grew on me through diverse work experiences and parenthood, I ultimately found my passion in dentistry, where I can help patients throughout their dental journey to relieve pain, eat/speak effectively, maintain a healthy mouth and smile with confidence.
When I’m not with patients, I like to keep up to date with the latest in dentistry through regular professional development courses and participating in the dental community as a member of the Australian Dental Association of Western Australia. I have also had the opportunity to volunteer at organisations such as the Tzu Chi International Medical Association (Perth Branch), helping disadvantaged patients at their monthly weekend community dental clinics.
The privilege of being awarded numerous awards throughout my degree and both the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons (top final year clinical performance) and Wynn Needham (1st overall final year grade) prizes drives me to be at the forefront of quality dentistry and to provide the best experience possible for my patients.
