It is important to have patients understand the importance of their own oral health as it can impact on their mental, physical and overall health.
Education and Experience Kathleen completed her Bachelor of Oral Health degree at the University of Queensland in 2013. She has had some experience working in the public sector but has predominantly been working in private surgeries in which she enjoys seeing patients of all ages.
Her role at Ipswich Dental Care As an Oral Health Therapist, Kathleen works with the dentists at Ipswich Dental Care to identify any factors in patient’s lifestyle and habits that can have a negative contribution to their own oral health which can put them at risk of dental caries and gum disease. She will give advice and instructions on how to prevent these oral diseases from occurring.
Understanding patients and their needs Kathleen aims to make sure patients leave her surgery looking forward to their next visit with her. She takes the time to connect with patients and makes sure they are comfortable during the treatment.
She has treated very nervous children and adults and over time have seen them change their dental perception to a positive one.
She likes to make the children’s visits interactive, fun and interesting for a positive dental attitude to resonate through adulthood.
Kathleen's personal interest Kathleen enjoys spending her weekends with her young family out and about and baking delicious treats.
