She is passionate about the treatment and management of periodontal (gum) disease and has completed training with the prestigious Dr Ian Dunn and Dr Phil Ower. This gave her the skills and knowledge to take ownership of managing periodontal conditions and maintaining dental implants.
Her original training as a therapist also enables her to provide dental fillings. For all her career she has been working alongside dentists to deliver high-quality hand-carved aesthetic restorations and loves doing this at SD&A. She is also trained in the removal of baby teeth. Her other love is aesthetic treatments and, like Malcolm, she is fully trained in providing anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal filler procedures. She is also trained in micro-needling and chemical facial peels. She has a general interest in facial cosmetics and has a keen eye for detail. Katie works alongside Malcolm in providing tooth whitening, by being trained to undertake in-surgery whitening to get the whitest results possible. She can also take the impressions to aid the process of making the trays for at-home whitening.
In 2013, Katie was honoured to be chosen as a finalist for ‘Hygienist of the Year’. This award, hosted by The Dentistry Awards, is a prestigious event involving many of the industry’s leading lights.
Previous to Katie’s training as a Hygiene Therapist, she was trained as a general Medical Nurse. Here, she worked in a hospital, looking after patients often with complex medical conditions. She’s always loved caring for people and loves to do the same at SD&A.
Since starting a family with Malcolm in 2020, Katie is in surgery less than before but is still at the heart of the practice providing facial aesthetics and working alongside our Practice Manager, Katrina, to continue the growth and development of SD&A.
