Paula is from Auckland, New Zealand and graduated in 1993 with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery from Otago University. Paula has since had the opportunity to work in Queensland (Australia), Auckland (New Zealand) and Surrey (England). After meeting and marrying farmer husband (Troy), she now enjoys the country life and lives on a farm near Colac with 3 children. The family has a beloved Silky Terrier Cross, Rufus, along with all the other pets her children have collected over the years.
Paula last worked for Barwon Health Dental Service and then took a short break from dentistry before deciding to join Purely Dental. She enjoys trying to make everyone’s dental experience as relaxed and comfortable as can be. Paula is particularly empathetic and understanding with nervous patients and children.
In her spare time, Paula runs after her three children, and takes Rufus for long walks on the farm. Otherwise, she can be found swimming laps at the pool.
