After completing her VCE, Catherine became our first team member when she join the newly opened Greenvale Dental Group in 2011. The practice has most certainly changed since then, and Catherine’s experience within the practice has played a vital role in new staff transitions and orientation.
Catherine enjoys the clinical aspect of her role and as a dental nurse takes great pride in assisting patients with their oral hygiene requirements. With her feet firmly in dental ground, Catherine completed her Certificate III in Dental Assisting in 2013.
Outside of the surgery, you will find Catherine on a netball court when she isn’t attending to the care of her two lovely daughters.
General dentistry (often referred to as family dentistry), encompasses a variety of treatments aimed at the patient’s overall oral care.
Dental Implants are the closest restoration you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They are posts made of titanium, surgically positioned into the bone beneath the gum. A porcelain crown is then inserted onto the post to create your new, natural looking tooth.
A smile makeover has many benefits which aren’t necessarily only related to the patient’s oral health. Aside from the oral benefits, a smile makeover can be an aid to the patients overall health. Many patients seeking cosmetic work report they live with anxiety or embarrassment due to their oral “quirks of nature” or the effects aging or lifestyle choices has had on their teeth. This can lead to self-esteem issues, lack of confidence and general withdrawal or depression in the patient’s day to day activities.
Greenvale Dental Group understand that sometimes life can throw a curve ball and you or someone in your family may need to receive urgent dental repair or care. Our philosophy is to provide immediate relief from pain and discomfort or attend to damaged teeth. Our practice reserves same day emergency appointments so you can be assured we will attend to your urgent needs promptly and efficiently.
