Born and raised in Melbourne, I completed a Bachelors in Biomedicine at Melbourne University before studying dentistry at Melbourne University with a Doctor in Dental Surgery degree. Since graduation, I spent several years working in private and public clinics in East Gippsland before settling here at Drouin Dental.
I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of dentistry but have a particular interest in restorative dentistry, oral surgery and preventative care. I love spending the time to listen, connect and educate my patients about how to best look after their teeth. I find it very important to be able to work collaboratively with my patients to find a personalised treatment plan tailored to them. There is nothing more rewarding than bringing back the confidence for my patients to smile again.
Outside of dentistry, I am a lover of travel and food! I also enjoy reading whilst snuggling up with my cat, Emmy.
