Dentist Sandie Earl
To follow my dreams in the world of dentistry, both as a practitioner and educator in a holistic way. To provide the best care and current knowledge to my family and patients that I can, so they feel safe and trusting., whilst being fair, honest and sharing my knowledge. To give back to the word, being mindful and grateful; to help make it a better place for us all.
I am the owner and principal dentist of the practice. I graduated in 1977 in NZ, and have in Australia since 1979. I have a BA and am currently studying with the International Academy of Orthodists to become an instructor.
My practice is heavily involved in early interceptive orthodontics; TMD; Sleep Dentistry and Myofunctional Therapy.
I first started my practice in High Street, which I sold; attempting retirement some 8 years ago now; and relocating to my now premises on Richardson Road 5 years ago.
My philosophy is to have a well educated team around you to assist in all aspects of patient care and education. If a team is educated, they will know what is going on as well. Without a good team, one cannot lead them to higher skills.
My role is to assist Sandie with the TMD and Myofunctional Therapy Programs which we run in our Richardson Road practice. I have worked with Sandie for some time now during which I have completed several courses including Certificate IV in Dental Assisting and mouth X-Rays and the Orofacial Myology Foundation Course with the Coulsen Institute.
Prior to joining the team at Richardson Road I worked within the industry in the local community. I would have to say the things that I enjoy most about what I do is helping people get back on track with their health and the problem solving that is an integral part of our therapy programmes.
Dana – Oral Health Therapist
As an Oral Health Therapist (OHT) I am trained in dental hygiene and dental therapy for people of all ages. My main focus is preventative dental care for my patients and help them achieve and maintain optimal oral health, as well as provide general dental treatment for children. I enjoy working with patients to provide a positive dental experience and achieve excellent oral hygiene habits.
In 2013 I began working at Sandie Earl Dental as a Dental Assistant. After completing my Certificate III in Dental Assisting and working with such a great team of women at Sandie’s I decided to further my studies and apply for the Oral Health program at CQU. After 3yrs of study in December of 2017 I graduated with a Bachelor of Oral Health.
Rachel – Receptionist / Dental Assistant
I joined the practice several years ago in the role of Receptionist and with the support of our team, I recently completed my Certificate III in Dental Assisting. I am now looking forward to spending more time in both roles and expanding on my skills that I have developed whilst studying.
