Meet Our Oral Health Therapists and Hygienists


Emily Davies

Emily Davies is a dual qualified Oral Health Therapist / Hygienist, educated at University of Melbourne.

She is specifically trained to deal with dental issues for babies, children and youth up to age 25, and connects well with all children. It’s about talking to our younger patients on a level that they can relate to and understand. This way we help to get the best dental outcomes for the kids and their families.

When seeing adult patients, Emily supports our dentists by undertaking the preparatory work such as charting and xrays, measuring the gum health, as well as taking time for a thorough clean. She gets outstanding feedback from patients with periodontal conditions, who have to have deep cleaning (scaling and root planing – SRP).
