BDS (Otago), DClinDent, FRACDS

 Sarah completed her dental training at the University of Otago in 2006 and began her dental career in paediatric care at Princess Margaret Hospital for Children in Western Australia. She had the privilege of working with a team dedicated to providing the highest standards of care for children with cleft malformation and significant medical issues. This training and her own experience of having braces as a teenager to improve her 'gappy' smile has inspired her to further her expertise in orthodontics.

She completed a clinical doctorate in orthodontics in Australia at the University of Queensland and was awarded a fellowship with the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons. She currently serves as the NZ student advisor for the college.


In 2016 , Sarah received the prestigious 'Young Lecturer Award' from the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons. She has also received lecturing award from the Australasian Begg Society of Orthodontists and University of Queensland. These prizes reflect Sarah's ability to distil the latest scientific research findings and communicate these effectively.


In her free time, she enjoys hiking, urban cycling and being involved in community work with the Rotary Club of Mount Victoria.
