Hi, I’m Tamara and I have been a part of Kawana Dental since 2001 after graduating from the University of Queensland. A couple of years teaching at Sydney University from 2009 was enough to highlight all the wonderful things the Sunshine Coast has to offer, and I am now settled here for the long-term with my husband Murray (also a dentist in the practice) and two children, Piper and Harry.
I enjoy most aspects of general dentistry and especially love developing a relationship and looking after people who have a fear of the dentist, or those who have not been to see a dentist for a long time. There is nothing more rewarding than hearing someone say they are not even nervous to come to see us anymore. I also enjoy implant and cosmetic dentistry and love helping people achieve their best smiles.
I am very proud to stand alongside my partners Mark and Georgia, and our talented practice manager, Kellie, to help create a practice and team who provides exceptional service and treats people like they are part of our family. Ensuring people have a positive experience at the dentist is something I am passionate about and fostering a culture of constant improvement helps us to achieve this.
Outside of work I try to keep fit with running, yoga, and pilates, and I love reading and spending time with family outdoors, camping or at the beach.
Dr Tamara and her amazing assistant Nina
