Michelle

Michelle

Business Manager

I have worked in the dental industry for 20 years. Prior to this I had a career in finance and banking.

Orthodontics is so different to general dental and I love the relationship that is built over the two to three years of treatment with our patients. You can almost see the confidence that is being built through their journey and of course the reveal at the completion of treatment is truly amazing. I cherish that we celebrate this transformation with them.

The team is simply amazing and Dr Ash is a great boss. It is such a beautiful working environment that I feel blessed to be a part of the team.

My friends probably think I am a gym junkie, but I do really enjoy the gym. I also love to socialise with friends and if I could travel for 365 days a year I would!

Andrea

Andrea

Orthodontic Therapist

I have worked in the dental industry for 6 and a half years after graduating with a Bachelor of Health Sciences in Population Health and then a Bachelor of Science in Oral Health.

I love the versatility of orthodontics as it is mostly painless and can be applied to many age groups - not just teens. I love the lab component of orthodontics and it's amazing that most people who attend their appointments want to be there and are invested in their smile.

Peel Ortho is all about team, and I love learning from highly skilled personnel. The team are welcoming and very hard working and it is a privilege to work here. I believe Peel Ortho has given me a chance at change and to learn new skills. It is a great opportunity that I am most grateful for.

My free time is spent in search of exceptional coffee. I also have numerous family members across Perth to travel and visit with. I am helping my family gather more information on our heritage and ancestry. My hobbies include golf and I am a board game professional.

Kath

Kath

Orthodontic Therapist

I have worked in the industry for 19 years after graduating with an associate Diploma in Dental Therapy from Curtin University.

Aspects of orthodontics that I really enjoy is seeing a patient at their first appointment. They won't smile because they are self conscious, but the day they have their braces off, they just can't stop smiling. It's gorgeous to see and very rewarding.

I enjoy working at Peel Ortho because of the wonderful staff. Everyone is lovely and supportive.

In my free time, I spend time with family and friends, playing with my two gorgeous dogs Milly and Winston as well as catching up with my lovely son Jacob who's 20. I also dolphin and bird watch and bike ride to the estuary.

Some of my hobbies include knitting, gardening, country drives and travelling - when able to.

Tracey

Tracey

Treatment Coordinator Lead

I have worked in the dental industry for 10 years after qualifying with a Certificate IV as a Dental Assistant. Before this I was in Office Management and hold a Certificate IV in Supervisory Management.

I joined the team at Peel Orthodontics in 2012. The team spirit and girls are great fun, and it is a good environment to work in. I enjoy meeting the new patients, putting them at ease and starting them on their way to the smile they have always wanted.

Working with Dr Ash and seeing the positive results our patients achieve through their orthodontic treatment encouraged me to have braces myself to improve my smile. This has given me a greater understanding and appreciation of the process and the experience a patient goes through to reap the lifelong benefits of orthodontic treatment.

In my free time, I read do gardening and take long country walks.

Rebecca

I have worked in the Specialist field of Orthodontics for the past three years after achieving Dux of the class for Certificate 4 in Dental Assisting.

I love Orthodontics as the patients smile transformations are amazing. I enjoy working at Peel Ortho as we have such a friendly environment with both the team and patients.

Jenny

Jenny

Treatment Coordinator

I'm married to John and we are proud parents of three daughters and a son. They have blessed us with five gorgeous grandchildren, who bring us great joy. I love to travel, especially cruising and also enjoy walking, Pilates and I like dabble in photography. 

After many years in office administration I decided in 2002 I wanted a change in career and studied dental nursing. Towards the end of my course in 2003, I was given the opportunity to work in orthodontics. I loved it from the first day and have never looked back. I find it to be very rewarding to see children and adults, from start to finish, walk away with beautiful smiles. 

I was very fortunate to work with Dr Ash a few years ago and now to join him again in his own Practice at Peel Orthodontics. I look forward to meeting you all to help you on your orthodontic journey.

I have worked in the Industry for five years and achieved a Certificate III and IV in Dental Nursing in 2019. I was very proud to receive the Practical Excellence Award in this course in 2019.

I enjoy working at Peel Ortho as it's a family friendly environment and I enjoy meeting new people. I love seeing patient smile transformations and how their confidence grows.

In my free time I go to music concerts with my husband, as well as going to the beach and exercising. I enjoy reading, listening to music and arts and crafts.

Denise

Denise

Dental Assistant

My family moved to Mandurah over 20 years ago as the Peel region has so much to offer.

I have worked in the dental industry for over 30 years having qualified as a dental nurse and progressing through to a Clinic Manager. I decided to make the transition back into nursing in orthodontics and I’m thoroughly enjoying the change.

I love helping people achieve a wonderful new smile and confidence. I also enjoy the great team at Peel Ortho as well as the fabulous patients.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to live bands and out for meals together with travelling. I also delight in the water and everything it conjures - boating, kayaking, and jet-skiing. Reading, playing cards as well as gardening and crabbing are some of my pastimes.

Maria

Maria

Dental Assistant

After 12 years of being a stay at home mum of 3 beautiful young children, I decided I wanted to enter the dental industry and a change of careers.

In July 2020, I enrolled in a Certificate 3 and 4 in Dental Assisting. I have recently qualified and graduated in July 2021!

I started my work placement at Peel Orthodontics after a month into my course. As Orthodontics is specialised, I had to start from the beginning and learn everything on the job.

I was fortunate enough to gain a trainee position with Dr Ash and all the wonderful ladies at Peel Orthodontics. Everyone has been amazing with helping me through my learning and training journey.

I enjoy working at Peel Orthodontics and seeing the fantastic transformation that the patients go through, and how happy they are at the end of their journey. Everyone has welcomed me with open arms. They are a wonderful, caring and awesome bunch to work with.

I enjoy spending my free time with my young active family, keeping fit, baking and spending time in my veggie garden.

Sarah

Sarah

I am new to the team at Peel Ortho. I hold a Diploma of Practice Management, which is one of my proudest achievements, and I am also studying for a Degree in Business Management.

As a newbie, with limited knowledge in the field of Orthodontics, I am hoping to settle in well and gain career knowledge in all things ortho. I am excited to be working with the team.

In my free time, I play cricket for the Halls Head Cricket Club and enjoy spending time with my family and fur baby. My hobbies are of course cricket, Netflix and relaxing by our pool.

Becki

Front Office Coordinator

I have worked in orthodontics for 4 years, I really enjoy working in Ortho because being involved in patients journeys from start to finish is such a rewarding experience. Orthodontics can help improve the confidence in people and being a part of their new found happiness is a wonderful job to have.

Peel Orthodontics has the most amazing team of people, everyone is so lovely and friendly which makes coming to work everyday a pleasure. Gone are the days of dreading Mondays! There’s such a fun upbeat atmosphere here and our patients feel it too.

In my spare time, I enjoy baking, reading and spending time with my partner, Dan, and 2 kids. They are heavily involved in Dance and Karate so I’m often running to and from training sessions most days. I am also very passionate about photography and videography and always seem to have a camera to hand!
