Dental Hygienist


Our hygienist is Carmen. Carmen initially worked for the school dental service as a dental nurse before attending the University of Melbourne to complete her full time two year diploma in Oral Health. Her many years with the school dental service gave her much experience in managing children and teenagers who are anxious about dental treatment.

Carmen carefully checks every patient to ensure the gums are healthy prior to treatment. She also provides feedback as to whether the toothbrushing and overall cleanliness of the teeth are of a high enough standard to allow the braces to work effectively. All our patients will see Carmen at various stages to have photos and models of the teeth taken. Carmen also performs tasks such as placing separator rubbers prior to braces being fitted. The actual treatment visits where the braces are placed and adjusted are with the orthodontist.


Specialist orthodontics involves careful consideration of long term success. Our patients now bring their own children to see us. That is the highest compliment we can get and we love that we are part of their family, their community.
