Mary-anne, Dental Assistant


My favourite aspect of my job is getting to know our patients, and making them feel welcome and relaxed while visiting us.

A highlight of Mary-anne’s day is when children come in and ask, “Can I come back tomorrow?” That is a compliment that she hears often! She also finds it fulfilling to work with the professional and diligent team at Cambridge Dental.


Mary-anne possesses a Bachelor of Applied Science (Nursing) and a Certificate III in Dental Assisting. She became interested in dentistry as she loves the hands-on approach and always had a keen interest in oral health.

Family and Hobbies

When she’s not at the practice, Mary-anne enjoys embracing family and friends with her master chef skills, ticking off adventurous travel destinations from her bucket list, and keeping fit and healthy. She also loves spending time with her husband and daughter and her sweet little dog Lucky.
