Kate joined the ethos team in 2010 bringing her special brand of quality orthodontic care to both adults and children. She loves getting to know her patients and is dedicated to creating the best possible smile for them.
After graduating from UQ with first class honours, Kate spent six years in general dentistry, while also lecturing to dental undergraduates at the University of Queensland.
Her interest in orthodontic techniques developed during a three-year period as a hospital dentist in England. Working with emergency injuries and treating conditions like oral cancer, motivated Kate to develop her skills to make even more of a difference in her patients’ lives.
Kate is committed to making the most of professional development opportunities, and regularly attends orthodontic conferences in order to study emerging techniques.
Like most of the ethos team, Kate also has a passion for sport, including surfing, wind-surfing, touch football and bikram yoga. This year she plans to compete in the American windsurfing tour, as well as being an active competitor in the local Queensland and Australian wavesailing competitions.
