While my generalist training ensures I am skilled across a wide range of dental conditions, my core focus is reconstructive and aesthetic dentistry. Using minimally invasive techniques, I collaborate with my clients to ensure their mouth functions well, looks good and has a positive, enduring impact on their quality of life.
The term “occlusion” refers to the alignment of your teeth.
A malocclusion is a deviation or misalignment from a normal occlusion. Overbites, crossbites, underbites and open bites are all types of malocclusions.
Overbites, are present when the upper teeth stick out too far beyond the lower teeth. Malocclusions can fall into one of three categories.
Class one is when a normal bite is accompanied by a slight overlap of the upper teeth. This is the most common malocclusion.
Class two is diagnosed when the overbite is severe, often known as retrognathic. Class three, on the other hand, is a severe underbite – when the lower teeth overlap the upper teeth. It’s referred to as prognathic.
We know the importance of straight teeth when it comes to confidence, appearance, functionality and better oral hygiene. What happens when your bite is off though? There are many health advantages that come with bite correction such as improved appearance, improved speech, and better functionality for chewing, biting and using the jaw.

Looking at me now you’d never guess that I initially pursued a career in finance. After completing a commerce degree at The University of New South Wales, I realised a life of spreadsheets just wasn’t for me. I wanted a career where I could use my hands. I wanted to push the boundaries of innovation and creativity. I wanted to help people achieve a better quality of life. A career in reconstructive dentistry has allowed me to do all that, and so much more.
Since 2008, I have taken immense pride in designing progressive dental solutions tailored to my clients’ individual needs. My meticulously executed designs focus on elevating people’s confidence, self-expression and long term health.
I consider it a privilege to develop ongoing relationships with my clients and bear witness to their transformations over time. I’ve seen people go from awkwardly holding their hands over their mouths when they smile to counting down the days to a big social event. Watching someone’s self-worth flourish, and knowing I’ve played a role in it, is more rewarding than I could’ve ever imagined.
Never one to rest on my laurels, I am continuously investigating global innovations in reconstructive dentistry to ensure my services are minimally invasive while achieving maximum impact.
