Upon graduating from Dental School with Honours in 2000, Anna was awarded the British Dental Association prize for best performance in final exams. She enjoyed practicing in a family orientated dental surgery and thrived on building rapport with her patients and colleagues. Anna then progressed to work in special care dentistry and was also involved in teaching paediatric dentistry. She went on to complete her membership exams for the Royal College of Surgeons England and started a position as an assistant in a specialist orthodontic practice in 2002. This spurred her desire to specialise in orthodontics and triggered the move to Melbourne for specialist orthodontic training.
Anna is certified to provide Invisalign clear aligner therapy, Incognito lingual braces (fitted to the inside of the teeth), as well as tooth-coloured and conventional fixed-on and removable braces. Specialist training has allowed her to develop extensive knowledge of growth and development, customising treatments to optimise timing and outcomes to help reduce time in braces. Anna is a strong believer in the positive outcomes of orthodontic treatment, with a great smile creating confidence in children, teenagers and adult patients alike.
Anna loves living in Melbourne and enjoys exploring with her husband and daughters at the weekend and venturing out of the city on camping trips when time allows. Anna is passionate about giving back, and has provided charity care to children in rural Romania and helped with setting up a school in Nepal. She is really excited to be joining the team and Love Your Smile Orthodontics.
