Melissa Ford - DB Dental

Melissa Ford

Dental Hygienist

I graduated from the Gilles Plains College of TAFE in 1986 with a Diploma of Dental Hygiene. Since then, I have worked with many different dentists including Dr Durgood in Renmark, Dr Stanbeuicius, Dr Vagrona, and locum work with Dr Hobby and Dr Thomas. As a school student I always had an interest in science and health, and this led to an interest in dentistry in later years. I practice general dentistry and spend the majority of my time in a clinical setting. I am pleased to be part of a dental practice which maintains a high standard of dental care, and keeps up to date with the latest technology for our patients to benefit from. I work hard to be gentle yet thorough, and enjoy chatting with patients to make them feel comfortable. In my spare time, I keep fit through walking and paddle boarding, and enjoy dining out at Adelaide’s many wonderful restaurants. I also have an interest in growing fruit and vegetables, although not with a high degree of skill! I devote time to surf life saving with the Henley Community Garden.
