Oral Health Therapists
Hi! My name is Ali.
I started my Dental journey in 2016 as a Dental Nurse in Western Australia. During this time I found my passion for good dental health. I went on to study and Advanced Diploma of Oral Health (Dental Hygienist) in South Australia and worked in Tasmania for a year before settling in Sydney late 2020.
I am passionate about educating patients on importance of good oral hygiene regime while undergoing their orthodontic journey!
In my free time I like to catch up with family and friends and explore Sydney.
Hi, I’m Julie, an orthodontic hygienist at Orthodontics at Tamworth. I’m based in Sydney but I fly up to Tamworth every second week with Dr Dinesh and our other hygienists. This is my fourth year working with Dr Dinesh and now with Dr Leigh too and I absolutely love getting to see our friendly Tamworth patients! I graduated from the University of Sydney in 2015 and have really enjoyed being able to work in both general dentistry and orthodontics. I’ll never be able to get over the excitement of taking someone’s braces off and showing them their new smile for the first time!
My name is Alyssa and I’m one of the Oral Health Therapists here at Orthodontics at Tamworth. I studied a Bachelor of Oral Health at the University of Sydney and graduated in 2015. I’m a Sydney girl and I absolutely love my ‘tree change’ when working at Tamworth! It really does feel like my home away from home.
You’ll usually see me around the clinic placing braces, changing wires or giving advice on the best elastic colour combinations!
Outside the clinic you’ll usually find me at a fitness class or catching up with family and friends over brunch.
Working at Orthodontics at Tamworth is extremely rewarding as I get to know our patients on a personal level, watching their perfect smiles transform!
Hi there – my name is Mandy and I’m an orthodontic hygienist here in my home town at Orthodontics at Tamworth. I graduated from the University of Newcastle in 2009 with a Bachelor of Oral Health and have worked in general dentistry ever since.
Since I was about 7 years of age I was always fascinated with braces and as hard as I tried, I could never convince my parents and my dentist that I needed them. That was until Dr Dinesh, Dr Leigh and Dr Alex listened to my concerns, and finally as an adult I have my braces! Not only did I get braces but I also started working at Orthodontics at Tamworth in 2019 and I love it – life is good!
I love being part of the journey with our patients and their families, the rewards are countless but one that stands out for me is seeing the pride that shines through from parents and carers who have been able to make it all possible.
My name is Kristie and I have the privilege of being part of the amazing team that is Orthodontics at Tamworth. Being part of this team is a very rewarding role for me as I get to communicate and form relationships with not only our patients but their families as well. I also get to see patients progress through treatment and see not only how much their teeth change, but also much more confident they are to smile. It such an amazing feeling seeing the reactions of the patients when their braces are taken off.
My role at the practice involves being in charge of the day-day operations, managing the front office and also on occasions, dental assisting.
I really enjoy what I do, and the environment we have created at Orthodontic at Tamworth is friendly, professional and relaxed, a place that is not only fun for us but also our patient’s.
Hey! I’m Caitlin, I’m a Clinical Assistant here at Orthodontics at Tamworth and I’ve been working for Dr Dinesh since 2017. You’ll see me taking photographs, assisting our hygienists, Dr Leigh and Dr Dinesh and explaining how to look after you’re braces. I came straight from finishing my HSC into the job, and absolutely fell in love! The best part of my job would have to be seeing the brand new smiles on patient’s faces when they finish treatment with us, it’s truly rewarding!
In my spare time I enjoy playing netball, hanging out with friends and increasing my skills as a dental nurse in a general practice when I’m not working at Orthodontics at Tamworth.
Front Office Coordinator
My name is Caitlin and I am the beaming ray of sunshine at the front desk greeting you as you enter the clinic. My role as a Front Office Coordinator is to assist our patients with all their needs from appointments to financials to aftercare instructions.
I believe that going above and beyond for our patients is essential and that is why I take pride in every aspect of my work. When I’m not in the clinic, you can find me outdoors playing catch with my two cavoodles; Millie and Coco.
