Kate S

Oral Health Therapist

Bachelor of Oral Health

Kate has been working as an Oral Health Therapist (OHT) for 5 years, and she’s been with Hills Dental Group for almost a year. 

Kate’s interest in the dental industry was sparked during her “gap year” after high school. Unsure of what direction to take, she worked as a dental assistant and completed a traineeship. Inspired and encouraged by her colleagues to pursue further studies, Kate then went on to complete her qualifications. 

She started out in her OHT career in a graduate program in the public health system before moving into a private practice setting. With a passion to help people and a keen interest in health and education, Kate enjoys supporting patients of all ages to make positive changes to their oral health. 

Outside of work, Kate enjoys travelling, exploring and learning about new places, people and experiences, and she is a keen music, wine and board game enthusiast.
