After qualifying as a technician in 1991, I went travelling and met my husband in Canada where I stayed until returning to Australia in 1999. Working as a Dental Technician in labs around Perth until opening my own lab in 2005.
In 2009 I went back to studying to complete the Advanced Diploma of Dental Prosthetics.
2012 I joined DB Dental as a Dental Prosthetist. I continue to manufacture my patients dentures in my own lab. This benefits my patients as it offers a much more personalized denture experience.
2017 I completed the “Construct and Insert Implant Retained Overdentures” course with RMIT University in Melbourne. This broadens my scope of practise to include offering patients the option of Implant retained overdentures.
