Andrea graduated from Griffith University in 2004 with a Biomedical Science degree and then continued on to complete her Dentistry degree in 2012.
She has worked in a variety of settings, including Queensland Health and private practice. Prior to graduating as a dental practitioner, Andrea worked as both a dental assistant and receptionist and so she has seen all aspects of the dental experience.
Andrea has a special interest in dental emergencies and treating children as well as preventive dentistry. She is warm and caring and takes time to listen to every patient’s concerns and works with them to find a treatment plan that they are comfortable with. She prides herself on taking time to explain procedures and answer any questions that may arise so patients fully understand their treatment.
When she is not working or attending courses, Andrea is busy raising her young family with her husband Ben. She has two small boys who keep her on her toes, but in her free time enjoys attending concerts and the cinema as well as spending time at the beach and gym. She is also a regular attender at rugby league games.
The practice is complimented by highly trained dental assistants. Their sole focus is to make each and every patient feel relaxed and comfortable in our dental office.
