Dani especially enjoys the technical side of orthodontics and loves being involved in our patients journey from start to finish. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge with patients to help them maintain good oral health and prevent dental issues developing. Striving for excellence, is why Dani is driven and committed to continually learning and increasing her knowledge in order to provide care of the utmost quality for her patients and we are so proud of her recent achievement in completing her Graduate Certificate in Dental Therapy “Adult Scope” and looks forward to the next academic adventure.
Dani is a vital team member in training and mentoring new clinical staff.
Although Dani joined us as a clinician in 2014, she has been a patient at LARA dental since 1991. Dani lives locally with her beautiful two daughters (and yes they are patients as well and so the next dental generation may be on its way!!)
“I have a passion for getting to know my patients not only on a professional but also connect on a personal level to help them maintain a healthy smile and the best overall health. The care I provide is gentle yet thorough, always done with kindness and my aim is to exceed my patient’s expectations. I take great pleasure in working cooperatively as a team with our dentists because of their immense knowledge and experience so I can provide excellent care for our patients. I look forward to being a long term team member and I get great satisfaction in seeing my patients grow and their life experiences whatever they may encounter”
