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.

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.
