Kathleen
KathleenOral Health Therapist
WM Dental is very pleased to welcome Kathleen as our second hygienist/oral health therapist. You will recall her friendly and caring nature makes her a great fit for our team.
Anyone who hasn’t had their teeth professionally cleaned in a while will no doubt have some tartar and staining built up. As your hygienist, Kathleen will gently clean around your teeth and gums. Cleaning all the areas your toothbrush may not reach – under your gums and in-between your teeth.
Kathleen will also be providing dental treatment to children. This centres around preventing decay and orthodontics. Remember, kids at high school can be seen for free under the School Dental Service.
Ask Kathleen anything, especially about life living on the shore. As a born and bred local, on weekends you can find Kathleen working as a surf life saver or competing in surf boat rowing. Saving teeth, and saving people at the beach too!
