Her first job out of dental school was in private practice in Wanganui; where the variety of work needed allowed her to hone her skills in different aspects of dentistry, which include fillings, extractions, root canals, crown and bridgework, dentures and orthodontics.

Michelle is passionate about helping people receive the dental treatment they need, knowing that dental anxiety and phobia are barriers for many people in seeking the treatment they require.

She aims to live a full life and outside of work, Michelle enjoys hiking, reading, painting, and traveling. Michelle and her partner recently backpacked around the world for a year, seeing over 20 countries and enjoyed learning about the world and ourselves.

She is excited to join the wonderful team at Lumino Johnsonville and looks forward to seeing you soon.
