Who on earth would want to be a dentist?

Mooroolbark Dentist 10

I hear this question a lot. The answer for me is that I actually became a dentist a little by accident. Born in 1972 in the western suburbs of Sydney, I began my career as a dental assistant in the early 1990’s. I quickly found that I became completely engaged with helping and caring for others. In 1993 I graduated as a dental therapist, laying my initial groundwork as a practitioner in Community Health services.

In 1995 I became the first member of my family to enroll in university. In 1998 I graduated from Sydney University with a Masters Degree in Health Science Education. In 1999 I went on to enroll in the Bachelor of Dentistry and graduated with Honours in 2003. I feel humbled to have the opportunity to play a part in the health of the local community.

The question for me now is…

Why do I continue being a dentist?’ The answer to this is easy. I care about people and every day I am grateful to have developed skills that allow me to engage with others and make a positive contribution to their health and well being. I am committed to ongoing study and developing my skills as a practitioner, to ensure my patients continue to receive personalized, high-quality care.

I go to the dentist every day, but let’s face it – going to the dentist is not at the top of everyone’s to-do list. It saddens me to think that most of us (me included) have at some stage had a less than ideal dental experience – I know this has had an impact on our confidence at the dentist. This of course comes at a price, when we avoid care that can at times leave us in pain or feeling embarrassed.

I am passionate about good quality, gentle dental care with a focus on the prevention through education and support.

It is possible to experience fewer dental problems and look forward to a future where unpleasant visits to the dentist are a thing of the past.
