Natasha graduated her three-year orthodontic speciality training at The University of Queensland and has been with Greater Springfield Orthodontics since February 2018. Her friendly, dynamic and motivated personality is a great addition to the GSO team, as is her high standards of patient care.
Natasha grew up in South Wales and moved to England after school to study biomedicine in Lancaster and then dentistry in Exeter and Plymouth, graduating in 2012. The following year she fulfilled a childhood dream and emigrated to Australia, working in Maryborough and Hervey Bay for three years as a general dentist with her fiancé Charles (who’s also a dentist).
“I’m so excited to have joined Greater Springfield Orthodontics: Dr Southall has such a wealth of knowledge and is up to date with the most recent technology, always striving for the best possible treatment outcomes for our patients. Here at GSO we are proud to have a patient centred approach to orthodontics, with the whole team involved in delivering exceptional treatment. Dr Southall and the team at GSO have an excellent reputation and are highly regarded within the profession. I feel very privileged to work alongside the team at GSO. The view of the mountains from the surgery is fantastic too!” – Dr Natasha Clare
“I’ve wanted to be a dentist since I was 7 years old, when my tooth came out in an ice cream and I wondered how it happened. I had the most wonderful and kind dentist as a child who continued to encourage my fascination. After a school work experience at 15 he started to train me up as his dental assistant. I would spend free lessons and after school in the clinic learning as much about teeth as possible.”
Outside of orthodontics, Natasha is a big fan of nature and can generally be found exploring the beautiful south west of Queensland.
