Sara Couch B.D.S [Syd]

Background

I graduated from Sydney University in 1983. I have always loved dentistry and feel extremely fortunate that my chosen career has provided me with such a satisfying working life. Immediately following graduation I was employed as a dental officer at the, then very new, Westmead Dental Hospital. This two year period was invaluable in cementing the knowledge I had gained as a student and allowing me to further develop my skills in a wonderfully supportive environment.

Always embracing Continuing Education

Over the years, I have seen tremendous changes in dentistry which have been most exciting. New technologies such as CEREC enable me to provide services for patients that I could not have imagined when I graduated. I have always embraced Continuing Education as a means of enriching my enjoyment of dentistry and ensuring that I can offer my patients the best treatment options.

Personal interests

Outside of dentistry Scuba Diving has been a special interest which has led me to enjoy many wonderful holidays in some out-of-the-way locations. I have also pursued an interest in photography and many other “crafty” type hobbies.

This exposure to dental assisting has helped Julie Anne’s gentle touch and friendly chair side manner that helps patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during their treatment.

Angel’s working career started as a McDonald’s crew manager which she knew wasn’t for her.

Angel’s passion in life was in the dental field where she became a dental nurse 5 years ago.

As a child and having been a regular patient herself at the dentist she was always so enthusiastic about learning what was happening around her.

As a senior Dental Assistant, Angel loves getting to know all our patients and they appreciate her gentle touch.

In Angel’s spare time she loves bush camping and 4W Driving with her partner.

 

Kate Ruiz (Oral Health Therapist)Kate Ruiz

As an oral health therapist, Kate provides detailed hygiene treatments and personalised oral hygiene advice to all of our patients, including children’s dental exams and treatments. She prides herself on being gentle and caring, with a key focus on prevention.

Kate completed her Bachelor of Oral Health at The University of Sydney and later returned to complete a Masters of Public Health. This led her to research and teaching roles at the University of Sydney, whilst continuing her clinical work. She now splits her week between seeing the lovely patients at Beyond Infinity Dental, and teaching current Bachelor of Oral Health students as a Clinical Educator.

Kate has always been a local to the hills, having gone to school in area. She loves spending time with her dogs, going for bike rides and bushwalks, and enjoying a good coffee with friends.
