Originally from the UK, I graduated from the Royal College of Surgeons in the UK, completing a Bachelor of Dental Surgery and obtaining a Diploma of Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery in 1996. I have been working since graduating, in a mix of general practices and hospitals in the UK before moving to Byron Bay in 2004 and joining the team at Star Family Dental. Dentistry has given me the opportunity to provide a service to others, and to be a part of the health industry in Australia. I love working in all areas of general dental practice. I am lucky to be a part of such a supportive team, in such a friendly atmosphere. In my work, I aim to meet the needs of my patients in a friendly yet professional manner. When I am not working, I enjoy camping, running, cycling and family time with my three boys. I also devote time to being a scout leader, and a committee member of the Byron Bay runners.

I graduated from the University of Queensland in 2009 with a Bachelor of Oral Health. Prior to joining National Dental Care in Byron Bay in 2014, I worked as a full time Therapist and Hygienist in private practices throughout Brisbane including Tony Weir Orthodontics, Smile Central, and Mary’s Dental Practice. I have always had a keen interest in health and the human body, and found my passion for dentistry after graduating high school and working as a Dental assistant, and no matter what I do, I have always found myself drawn back to dentistry. I left a full-time position in 2005 as a dental assistant to backpack through Europe for 7 months, and upon returning home began a Bachelor of Nursing at the Australian Catholic University in 2006. In 2007 I decided to switch to studying dental hygiene instead. Working with great mentors and building close bonds with work colleagues and patients inspired me to further my qualifications within the field. I enjoy all aspects of my role, but most importantly love working with people and being able to treat children. Working for NDC in Byron Bay I am very fortunate not only to be surrounded by such lovely staff but also by such amazing surroundings. All the staff at Byron have been so friendly and welcoming. I love being able to unwind after work with a walk around the Byron Bay headland. In my spare time, I like to keep fit and active and maintain a healthy lifestyle. When not working, you will find me enjoying Byron Bay and all it has to offer—the beaches, markets, food, activities. I like spending time with family or friends, and bonding with my two Staffordshire Bull Terriers. My other passions include travel, meeting new people and exploring my new surroundings in the Northern Rivers District.

I graduated from the University of Newcastle (UK) in 1996 with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery. After a year in general practice I undertook 3 years of hospital posts focusing on oral maxillofacial surgery. I pursued further studies, obtaining Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons in England in 1999. I then returned to general practice. I joined the team here in 2004 when I moved to Byron Bay from London, being drawn to the Australian climate and outdoor lifestyle. In 2010 I undertook further studies completing the gIDE Master Clinician Program in Implant Dentistry in Sydney and Los Angeles. I enjoy working in all aspects of dentistry, especially more complex cases involving implants. I have a strong focus on prevention and aim for my patients to keep their teeth for life. My aim is to practice to the highest possible standard but still in a friendly and relaxed way, trying to make my patients feel as comfortable as possible. In my spare time, I enjoy road-cycling, surfing, cricket, and participating in triathlons. I speak Czech and have a rudimentary knowledge of French. I have 3 very active boys aged 10, 8 and 5 who keep me occupied with their various sporting activities.
