BBioMed (Hons) DDS (Mleb)
I completed an Honorary Degree in Biomedicine from Melbourne University, followed by a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Melbourne University. Before joining the team at Drouin Dental, I have had years of experience in public and private clinics across Victoria.
I love the artistry that comes with dentistry. Every patient presents with a different set of needs and circumstances, which in turn demands a series of agile responses from me. Adopting the right method to work with each patient keeps me continually passionate about my work – and my patients.
I have become known as a bit of an all-rounder at Drouin Dental. From root canals to fillings to crowns, my skills are applied across all fields of general dentistry – and across patients of all ages. I like to approach my work with a sense of togetherness with my patients, which I find will calm the most nervous of patients during treatment.
I play soccer and tennis to keep myself active, and I really enjoy travelling. In 2017, I volunteered my dental skills to a small rural farming community in Cambodia, where I mostly fixed a lot of nasty toothaches for children and adults who had no ready access to a dentist. This experience was very rewarding for me, and made me feel very proud to be a dentist.
