Sarah left a sparkling ACT hockey career behind and undertook her qualification in Dental Therapy. She has been with Dr Hyde for 23 years and the level of her skill is so high that she did all the braces adjustments when Dr Hyde had braces 5 years ago.
Her commitment to patient care and excellence are second to none.

It is now 13 wonderful years that Sarah has been with our practice. Starting life as a patient Sarah joined our team and with her unflagging dedication to detail and an unstoppable work ethic. She is the lynch pin of our clinical team. Every place needs a person with a no-nonsense attitude to getting things done and Sarah is our person. Her laugh freely ringing through the practice is a delight. A keen runner and fitness fanatic Sarah never seems to run out of energy.
Leanne has been working as a dental therapist for 26 years in the Dental Health Program. Her interest in extending her skills and diversifying into another aspect of the dental field is what attracted her to orthodontics.

She is a wonderful valuable and highly respected member of our team and generates happiness and harmony wherever she goes.
Judy is the tour de force of our laboratory services. An experienced business woman in her own right we are genuinely lucky to have Judy as part of our team.

Hailing from Adelaide, Liana is a terrific asset in the clinical area. It is fair to say that she is a very fast leaner and apart from being in the clinic she also works in the laboratory. All of the work she does us at extremely high standard, bordering on excellence in many areas. She is passionate about fashion and can often be caught humming or singing i tune around the clinic. She has a large loving family and benefits from the closeness to her family.

The day she had her retainers fitted we were lucky enough to have her join our practice.
