Stephanie graduated from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa in 1990 as an Oral Hygienist. She worked in South Africa from 1991, for the House of Assembly Department of Health Services as a dental hygienist, in state dental clinics and provided dental education in primary schools and kindergartens.

      After eighteen months she switched over to private practice. She moved to NZ in 1994, where she took a break from dentistry and started back in private practice in New Plymouth from 2001-2011, when she moved to Australia and joined the team at Design Dental Group.

      Stephanie believes that healthy teeth require healthy gums, and that is what our well established oral hygiene programs offers. Our focus is to provide our patients with extensive information about their oral health coupled with excellence in oral hygiene care.
