After graduating with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery, Carmen was selected as 1 of 6 from Australia and New Zealand to continue further work and training under the guidance of specialists in children’s dentistry, root canal treatment, oral surgery and special care at the Sydney Dental Hospital.
Since the completion of the program, Carmen has been working extensively in both the public and private sector, as well as helping future dentists develop their skills as a clinical educator with the University of Sydney.
Carmen takes great pride in her ability to provide high quality dentistry in a gentle manner that has allowed dozens of her patients to fall asleep (snores and all), even through root canal treatments!
Between her love of children and her further training under children’s specialists, Carmen is able to help create a fun and calm dental appointment. For the dentally anxious children, she is able to offer happy gas, painless anaesthetic and other techniques to help your child overcome their dental anxiety – in her experience they often become excited to come back!
With all of her patients, Carmen always aims to balance being proactive with minimalistic dentistry. This helps her patients receive only the least invasive and simplest treatment while preventing even the smallest of problems from getting any worse.
