A message from Katelyn;
I have been away from Bundaberg for a few years, however, some of you may remember me as a Dental Assistant at Harris Dental Boutique. In 2016 after three intensive years of study, I graduated university with a Distinction in Oral Health Therapy. I am often asked what an Oral Health Therapist actually is? An Oral Health Therapist is qualified in dental hygiene and dental therapy who provides a wide range of dental care in a variety of settings to children, adolescence and adults. I am able to perform comprehensive examinations, fillings and dental hygiene procedures on all ages as well as complete all dental procedures for children including tooth removal, nerve treatments, and fillings.
Helping people has always been something that I have been very passionate about and something I yearn for each and every day. After completing work experience at Harris Dental Boutique during my last year of high school, I discovered my passion for dentistry. I accepted a full-time position as a trainee Dental Assistant when I completed year 12 and this sparked an even greater passion for oral health. From that moment, I knew that I wanted to be an Oral Health Therapist.
In June 2016, I was lucky enough to be chosen to volunteer in Vanuatu to provide dental treatment to those most in need. This was truly one of the most rewarding things I have ever done! Read about my adventure in Vanuatu here.
I have a strong passion for oral health promotion with the aim to educate and prevent the progression and rate of dental diseases. I enjoy treating patients of all ages, however, I have a strong desire to help children have a healthy smile. I love working with kids and making their dental experience a positive and happy one.
I am extremely excited to take on my new role at Harris Dental Boutique in Bargara and feel incredibly privileged and honoured to be working alongside Dr Linc, Dr Michelle and the team.
