Natasha is in the final year of her three-year orthodontic specialty training at UQ and she will be spending time at GSO this year working under the supervision of Dr Peter Southall. We are delighted to have Natasha; she is a friendly, dynamic, motivated individual with 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 migrated to Australia, and worked in Maryborough and Harvey Bay for three years as a general dentist with her fiancé Charles (who’s also a dentist, now practising in Samford). Natasha started her specialist programme at UQ in 2016.
