The exact moment that I decided I wanted to become a dentist…
I can’t say there was an exact moment that I realised I wanted to become a dentist, although I knew it was always going to be something in the health field. Like many seventeen-year-olds, fresh out of high school I’d made several applications to different health-related Bachelor degree programs around Australia. I believe there were several offers in different fields however for some very happy co-incidence I chose the Dental program at Griffith University on the Gold Coast. Little did I release that this career path would suit me to perfection! A blend of health science, one on one connection with the individuals I treat, and the hands-on artistry that is dentistry!
What I love most about my job…
The part of my job I love the most is the feeling of satisfaction when I have made a positive impact on someone, when I know I’ve applied my skills and knowledge in such a way that has brought about the best outcome possible for my patient. I strive to bring my patients through the process of understanding their condition to delivering them to a stable healthy oral health state.
My favourite type of dental treatment…
That is a good question. I think in this day and age of dentistry, no treatment is necessarily undertaken or planned in isolation. I regularly use a combination of treatments to bring my patients the result they deserve across the full complement of available procedures. For me, it’s key to treatment plan comprehensively, allowing me to bring in a wide range of treatment options to my patients and then we can plan together for what option suits them in the short to medium and long term.
If I wasn’t a dentist…
I’d like to think I would own a Luxury Day Spa providing the highest quality skin rejuvenation treatments in a way that delivers the ultimate relaxation experience to clients – actually, that may not be successful as I’d want to be the client all the time!
My favourite thing to do on the Gold Coast in my spare time…
Anything that allows me to appreciate the beautiful location we are so lucky to call home. So many activities locally involve the Broadwater and beaches. I love stand up paddleboarding as a great way to explore, whilst relaxing and getting a good core workout! I couldn’t see myself living anywhere else!
