Dr Kathryn Joe

BDS (NZ). Principal Dentist

Kathy qualified with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Otago, New Zealand in 1984. After working in private practice in both Auckland, and then London between 1985 – 1990, she arrived in Perth and purchased an established practice, Mandurah Terrace Dental Clinic, in 1991. After 15 years on ‘The Terrace’, the practice was expanded and relocated to Silver Sands,  to become Silver Sands Family Dental Care, as it is known today.

Kathy is passionate about dentistry. Having had extensive dental treatment as a child, and numerous visits as a patient herself, Kathy has realised that dental care delivered with compassion, and a high standard of excellence can have a profound effect on not only the dental outcome but more importantly on a Patient’s life.   Her passion and special interests are in Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry whilst operating a general family dental practice. She is dedicated to improving oral health and general wellbeing of her patients by providing a high level of dental care in a friendly, relaxed and safe environment.

Kathy regularly attends seminars and continuing education courses to ensure she stays up to date, looking to refine her skills, and keep up with the ever- changing technology in Modern Dentistry. She has been a long-standing member of the Australian Dental Association.

While having lived and practised in Mandurah for now over 28 years, Kathy enjoys the great Mandurah lifestyle with her husband Phil, their 2 children, and 2 Ragdoll Fur Babies. She is a keen skier, gardener (bonsai) & cook.
