We love to
see you smile.

Deakin Dental is a small but strong team that loves everything dental.

Get your teeth into what I like doing outside of touching your chompers.

・I am quite funny, that’s what my husband Bobby and three daughters say anyway. Laughing at my own jokes happens a lot!

・I have been told my hair is a barometer.

・I am a mama to beautiful humans and a crazy labradoodle called Ziggy.

・I have been told I run like Forrest Gump and  I complete marathons in my spare time.

・In addition to looking after your teeth I am into whole patient care  and am a functional dental practitioner. I definitely may try and get you into daily yoga and meditation to look after your mind, body and soul.
