I am passionate about dentistry for many reasons. Laying on my front lawn as a child I wondered what I wanted to do when I grew up. I concluded I wanted to improve the world by fixing things and making it better. Dentistry allows me to use my hands to craft new teeth. Dentistry allows me to use my mind to solve problems case by case. Dentistry brings me together one on one with individuals to allow me to bring my dental services to them. I love learning about science regarding health, microbiology, materials physics, and psychology. My degree in visual arts has brought me a new appreciation in viewing the world from alternative perspectives. These websites that I have built, although a bit clunky, still contain many gems of information on all things dental. The cases displayed at both Bytes Dental Ballina and Bytes Dental Lismore are mostly examples of dental work done by myself.
As a mother of 3, I have had the privilege/burden of having time out of the workforce to reflect upon my chosen career path. I can honestly say that I love being a dentist. I love taking all my geeky readings of dental articles and then implementing this knowledge into the the best service I can give to others. As the owner of Bytes Dental I am passionate about sharing this enthusiasm with all our team. We are all striving for the common goal of ultimate patient satisfaction.
I see myself working as a dentist until retirement, over 20 years away. I stand by my work and am proud to have Bytes Dental as an accredited dental practice. I look forward to servicing my patients’ dental needs for decades to come.

In my spare time I like reading about cosmology, and like to ponder on what the universe is made up of, and how gravity influences space time, and what the ultimate shape of the universe is, why our nearest star is just so far away from us, and whether we are able to astral travel in our dreams to make contact with other life forms.
