Clare - Orthodontic AuxiliaryClare

Orthodontic Auxiliary


Clare registered as an Orthodontic Auxiliary in 2004, following receiving her Dental Assistant badge in 1999. She has a passion for orthodontics and loves being able to give her patients the most amazing smile.

Once a week Clare works as an Orthodontic Auxiliary at the Christchurch Hospital Dental service, where they treat cleft lip and palate, and orthognathic (jaw surgery) patients. This work is complex and extremely rewarding.

 Outside of the practice, Clare is quite active outdoors as she enjoys walking the Port Hills, taking part in triathlons, and playing in the Golden Oldies Hockey Festival.
