Hi, I’m Alex! I’m an Oral Health Therapist and I recently joined the Kawana Dental team in January 2024. I completed my studies at La Trobe University in Victoria, with dual qualifications in Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy with adult scope.
I’ve been working in the Queensland Health School Dental Service for the past 3 years up in Townsville before making my way down to the Sunshine Coast. I’ve been lucky enough to work on Magnetic Island and make trips to rural communities to provide dental care. I have a lot of experience working with Indigenous and Refugee communities.
I’m passionate about preventative care and ensuring everyone has an enjoyable experience at each visit. Even for tricker appointments like extractions which can be a little nerve wracking – I’m there with you every step of the way! I aim to calm nerves, keep treatment light hearted and fun and take my time with explaining treatments to both kids and parents.
In my spare time I love to create and sew. You’ll spot me wearing my homemade scrub tops around the practice!
Looking forward to meeting all of your lovely smiles over the coming months!
