Meet the Team
Hi, I’m Sharyn, I am a senior hygienist here at Greater Springfield Orthodontics. I am registered with AHPRA as a dental hygienist and dental therapist. I Graduated with the “Excellence in Oral Hygiene” award and the “Oral B award for Oral Health Promotion”. I love working here at Greater Springfield orthodontics. I really enjoy seeing our patients getting excited about their new smiles. My gentle kind approach ensures I have happy patients.
Oral Health Therapist
Hi. My name is Marissa and you will meet me in my role as Oral Health Therapist and Treatment Co-ordinator at Greater Springfield Orthodontics. I studied a Bachelor of Oral Health and graduated with a High Distinction from the University of Queensland in 2009. I love my role at GSO and I look forward to meeting you and helping you to achieve the best outcome from your treatment with us (and maybe have a bit of fun along the way).
Oral Health Therapist
Hi, I’m Allana. I graduated with distinction from CQU as an Oral Health Therapist. When you start your treatment, I work with Dr. Southall and Dr. Clare to adjust your braces and guide you through your treatment. I’ve been through orthodontic treatment myself and appreciate how much it can improve your life. My favourite appointments are finishing treatment and seeing how it boosts our patients confidence.
Being a golden retriever Doug is a beautiful natured dog who loves nothing more than to cuddle up next to our patients (and parents!). He’s here to help with anxious patients but will gladly receive attention from anyone who’s around. Doug is often found having a nap either in the office or in the clinic. After work Doug goes home with Dr Clare. He has a busy social life, which you can follow on his very own Instagram account @dogtordouglas. Our dogtor enjoys chicken treats, the beach and playing with his friends. Much to Dr Clare’s dismay, Doug does not like the car and insists on being picked up to get in and out of the boot.
Hi, I’m Amy, a receptionist at Greater Springfield Orthodontics. When you arrive, I will be one of the first people to welcome you to our clinic. I studied a Bachelor of Commerce, graduating with distinction in 2016 and joined the team in early 2021. I am the third member of my family to have treatment at GSO and understand how rewarding it is to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. I can’t wait to assist you throughout your journey and look forward to getting to know you along the way.

Senior Dental Assistant / Tech Coordinator
Hi, my name is Kim and I am the senior dental assistant/tech coordinator. I have been with the clinic since 2011 and I now hold my Cert III and IV in Dental Assisting. You may see me assisting Dr Southall and Dr Clare in the clinic but I also work behind the scenes as I am the SureSmile Coordinator. My role has also enabled me to take on the responsibility of our state of the art 3D printing machine. I’m really excited that GSO can offer these amazing technologies to our patients. I look forward to meeting you all and help achieve amazing smiles.
Hi, my name is Nina and I am the Dental Assistant at Greater Springfield Orthodontics. You will usually find me in the clinic assisting Dr Southall, Dr Clare and our Hygienists. I am so proud to be a part of the fun, knowledgeable and friendly team.

Howdy!!! I joined the team at Greater Springfield Orthodontics in early 2021, after completing the placement hours for my Certificate III in Dental Assisting here. I am continuing my studies and have started my Certificate IV in Dental Radiography. I was born and bred here in the western suburbs of Brisbane but had a short college period in South Carolina on a soccer scholarship, before returning to Australia. I care about your smile and making sure our patients are number one is my priority.
