Reception / Dental Nurse
Mary joined Greenvale Dental Group in 2013 as receptionist / dental nurse. Mary initially considered a career in general nursing, but soon found her passion was in dental field when she took on a trainee role whilst waiting for a university placement. Mary completed her Certificate III in Dental Assisting and 22 years later, she is continues to work in an area she loves.
Patient care is of utmost importance to Mary and she believes patient education and oral instruction is a vital component of her role. Mary is proud to be part of the Greenvale Dental Group team and gets great satisfaction from being part of an environment that promotes exceptional dental care.
“Our warm, caring environment, experienced staff and the moral and ethical approach to our work is something I can be proud of, and it is where I recommend and bring my extended family and friends to, for their dental treatment.”
As a mother of two daughters, Mary’s spare time is limited but she does enjoy the occasional dinner out and most of all spending time with loved ones.
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.
We understand not everyone loves dentistry like we do. Although dentistry has changed over the years, some patients are plagued with fear and anxiety and will often forgo necessary dental treatment which can ultimately affect their overall health.
