Meet the Team
I grew up in Perth and am proud to be raising my beautiful children, Chase and Stella, in such a wonderful city. As a Specialist Orthodontist, I’ve spent years mastering the intricacies of my profession, studied the latest procedures and perfected the most prudent treatments. And honestly, for most of that time, I thought I was just learning how to straighten teeth. But I’ve discovered something else in the process that is far more rewarding. One of the greatest pleasures of my life is to see a patient come into my office as a shy, self conscious teen, and leave as a confident and happy young adult. I’ve been blessed with the ability to create a smile. But I think even more importantly, I have the remarkable privilege of being able to enhance self confidence. To play a part in changing a young person’s perception of themselves and how they are perceived by those around them. I transform smiles, and along the way I change kids lives. On the weekend, you’ll find me down at Cottesloe Beach spending time with my wife Sally, and running after Chase and Stella – which has become part of my training. I have run both the Boston Marathon and Chicago Marathon in support of the kids at Starlight Children’s Foundation, and am planning to run the Berlin Marathon later this year. They say you can take the boy out of Boston, but you can’t take Boston out of the boy. As such, I’m also an avid supporter of the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots and the Boston Celtics!
Chief Operating Officer
I’m a busy Mum with three young kids. I have 14 years experience working in Corporate Finance with two leading Investment Banks in Sydney, London and Perth. I have completed a Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Commerce at UWA, and a post-graduate qualification with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Australia. I focus on making our practice a fantastic place to be – for both patients and staff alike. Having worked in the corporate world for many years, and it’s been a breath of fresh air to work in a place dedicated to making people feel good about themselves. I am proud to contribute back to the community, and I am the President of the Parents’ and Friends’ Association at St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls. I spend my weekends with my family – my beautiful children Chase, Stella, and Allegra, and my amazing husband.
I’m an energetic Mum of three fun-loving children. I’m also a Hygienist who recently joined the world of orthodontics after 14 years in general dentistry. I’ve completed both an Associate Degree in Dental Hygiene as well as an Advanced Certificate in Dental Assisting. I spend my weekends with my family and we love going on camping holidays to the beach. Most people don’t know this, but I wanted to be an Olympian or elite sportsperson when I grew up!
I am a proud mother of 3 and grandmother of 6 children, with lots of experience dealing with people having grown up in Kalgoorlie with 10 brothers and sisters. I am the bright and friendly face that you will see when you first visit our office. I focus on making our office a warm and friendly environment for our patients to visit. I enjoy coming to work as no two days are ever the same, and it is great to be part of a dynamic team that is always striving for excellence. My weekends are busy spending time with family members, catching up with friends and going to the movies. I’m an avid West Coast Eagles supporter and there’s always some Eagles/Dockers banter at Front Desk during the AFL season!
I’m the small and compact Hygienist you’ll meet in Dr Siva’s clinic – some people joke I’m still waiting for my growth spurt to kick in! I love working in Orthodontics, getting to know my patients and see their smile evolve into something wonderful. Its really great working in such a modern clinic and using the latest technology to achieve amazing results. I play badminton (socially!) on the weekends and love to travel. I’ve started a bucket list and am trying to cross some things off it!
I’m a hardworking and energetic Mum of three very active boys. I’ve worked in the dental industry for more than 28 years and have experience across General Dentistry, Periodontics and now Orthodontics. I enjoy working with a such a friendly and dynamic team focussed on providing the best care for our patients. The continuing education we receive in orthodontics is second to none and ensures we stay up-to-date with the latest developments and technology. I love going away caravanning with my family and friends at any opportunity. I also love dancing and until my mid-20s I competed in and taught ballroom dancing.
Senior Dental Nurse
I’m a devoted wife and mother to a beautiful little girl. I’m a qualified dental assistant with additional qualifications in radiography, and am the most Senior Dental Nurse at our office. I assist Dr. Siva and our wonderful team of oral health clinicians to deliver care to our patients, trying to make the journey as smooth as possible. It’s a wonderful feeling to take a shy, self-conscious patient through their treatment and see the smile on their face when their orthodontic journey is complete. On the weekend I love to spend time with my husband and daughter either out and about or relaxing at home. Family time is very important to me.
I’m the energetic and friendly Dental Nurse you’ll see in the clinic, always wearing a smile from ear to ear. I completed my Certificate III in Dental Assisting and decided to launch my career in the specialist field of orthodontics. It’s fantastic being part of a friendly team who create a vibrant work environment that I love being part of each day. When I was younger I always wanted to be a singer and I’m fortunate enough for this to be possible – on weekends I’m the lead singer for a band performing at birthdays and events. I’m also a ‘closet creative’ and love all things artistic – painting, sketching, crafts – you name it!
I started my career in General Dentistry as a Dental Assistant before receiving a wonderful opportunity to work with this terrific organisation. I find Orthodontics really rewarding and feel I’m part of a life-changing experience for our patients, who receive the very best of orthodontic care with the latest cutting edge technology. The joy on a child’s face when their braces come off is just amazing. I work part-time as I am currently studying at University and looking to pursue full-time tertiary studies in the near future. I enjoy going on regular holidays with my family and friends.
I’m a go-getter who embraces change and new challenges – a Brazilian girl making her dream of living in Australia comes true. I work ‘backstage’ in the laboratory making the trutains that will ‘retain’ the great results achieved by Dr. Siva’s treatment. I love travelling with my husband, especially to places where we can go sightseeing on foot, meet new people, discover new cultures and taste new wines. A budding actress when I was younger, I returned to acting classes when I finished uni as a hobby but found belly dancing more exciting!
I’m a busy working Mum with more than 11 years experience in the dental industry. I focus on enhancing the experience for new patients and enjoy educating people on their orthodontic options and what to expect when they start treatment with us. I’ve been through the orthodontic journey with Dr Siva, so can I can personally attest to the wonderful care and oustanding results that he and our team deliver. I love spending time with my family on the weekend, particularly with my little boy, who has a wild imagination and is a real little character.
I’m an energetic mother of two active girls and handle both accounts receivable and payable. I’ve spent more than 10 years in Dentistry and 12 years running my family business. I really enjoy using my unique skills to work towards a common goal and love being in such a fabulous workplace. I spend my weekends running between kids sports and enjoying the company of my family and friends. I’m a morning person so there’s no sleep-ins for me – it’s a 4.45am start for me every day!
