We're not just another dentist, and you're not just another client. You're part of the family.
Receptionist Emma fell in love with Australia during a trip from Newcastle, UK, and in 2015 made Melbourne her home. We’re biased of course, but we think the city is a better place with her in it. A counselling and social policy graduate, Emma’s friendly approach leaves everyone at ease and clients departing with a smile. When not ensuring our busy practice is running smoothly, Emma enjoys trying new restaurants, home DIY, keeping fit at the gym and generally exploring all Melbourne has to offer.
Having graduated from The University of Melbourne with both a Bachelor of Biomedicine and a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, Kathy is thrilled to be a part of The Dental Room’s team. Since she is not the biggest fan of her own dental visits, she is passionate about making others feel at ease during their trips to the dentist. She is devoted to helping others achieve their oral health goals by providing high quality, tailored treatments that suit each individual client and their needs. Kathy enjoys all aspects of general dentistry with the strong belief that a happy and healthy smile goes beyond just beautiful teeth. When she isn’t attending to her patients’ pearly whites, you’ll find her watching too many tv series at once, enjoying the great outdoors, attempting to succeed at Pilates with the correct form or feeding home-grown celery to her rabbit.
