Dental & Orthodontics Receptionist
Julie is the newest member of the team, but she has always been a part of general dentistry. She began her career in the industry in 2003 through a MediTrain Medical Receptionist course. Then, Julie worked for DB Dental in various locations, namely Craigie, Joondalup, and Innaloo from 2005. She remained with the company for about seven years.
Then she later worked at Smiles in Currambine as a front office coordinator. Her job did not involve anything related to nursing from 2014. She just left recently to work with Oasis Orthodontics.

How Does Working in Orthodontics Differ from Dentistry?
It is a completely different world, according to Julie. General dentistry involves working with all kinds of dental issues and services. Meanwhile, orthodontics is more of a specialist job, such as braces and teeth alignment.
Out of all the various career paths to take, she picked dentistry and orthodontics for a few reasons. She is up for the challenge and wants to learn about teeth. She was searching for a specialised area, and orthodontics was a good opportunity for her.
Working at Oasis Orthodontics
She may be new in the company, but she enjoys what she does. Her job allows her to meet new people, which is exciting. There is always something unique to deal with every day, from speaking to new and existing clients to various issues.
The front desk is a busy part of the business. And Julie is always ready to multitask. But what she is most excited about is seeing the transition of the patients. Even the smallest changes can have a huge impact on a person’s life. She cannot wait to witness these changes from having problematic teeth alignment to better, more confident smiles.
When Julie is not working, she goes to the gym and exercises. She also walks alone or with her dog to the beach. Of course, she spends time with her family, especially her three teens that always keep her busy.
