    Liz’s main focus of care is to assist her patients in achieving their best possible oral health and to keep their teeth for life. She is passionate about spreading the message that tooth decay is preventable and that prevention is the key to keeping teeth and gums healthy for life. Liz offers free oral health presentations to all community groups – schools, aged care and nursing mothers to name a few.

    Her warm, caring personality will shine through her treatment of patients as if they were a family member.
