I have lived on the Central Coast in NSW most of my life and after completing my Higher School Certificate in 2006 I decided to travel around Australia for one year. I then started my first job as a Dental Assistant. I have since worked in various practices on both the Central Coast and in Sydney as a Dental Assistant, Receptionist and Office Manager.
I have approximately 10 years’ experience in the dental profession and thoroughly enjoy all of the different aspects of working as a Dental Assistant including Implants, Orthodontics and Oral surgery.
I have completed my certificates as a Dental Assistant Certificate 3 and Business Administration Certificate 3. I am currently completing a Certificate 5 in Mental Health as I would I would like to give my time to help those struggling with mental health issues and to be able to help to reduce social isolation in the community.
I have been lucky to be able to travel to countries such as Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Loas and Malaysia whilst working as a Dental Assistant.
My current role is working as the Dental Clinic and Patient Coordinator for Filling the Gap. I feel very privileged to be a part of a program such as this which helps less fortunate people in Australia get access to charity dental care.
