About us


Hi everyone. I’m an UQ Graduate in my second year out, working in private practice in Brisbane.

I found the dental Head Start Podcast an amazing resource for me in my first year out. I really wanted to help and give back to a resource I found so helpful so volunteered to help Dave with the podcast.

Outside of work I really enjoy hiking and camping and spending time in the outdoors, pilates, reading and cooking for friends and family.

Hi, I’m a recent Sydney Graduate who spent over 10 years dental assisting before graduation. I fell that this and the experiences since have given me a head start and I want to help share those lessons with students and graduates everywhere. 

If you listen to the Podcast you’ll know it’s not all dentistry for me, I cherish time with beautiful wife, toddler and two dachshunds and ride mountain bikes to keep sane.

Hi everyone. I’m an international student from Canada currently in my third year in the Doctor of Dental Medicine program at University of Sydney. Before starting the program, I completed my undergraduate degree in Health Sciences at University of Ottawa.

Some of my interests involve soccer, rock climbing, and hiking or camping with friends.
