Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist (OMT)
Dental Hygienist

Katie is a Dental Hygienist and Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist with over 25 years of experience in the industry. She is a member of the Australian Association of Orofacial Myology. Katie found a love for Myofunctional Therapy after seeking out answers to her own jaw pain and functional habits. After studying with the Australian Association of Orofacial Myology in 2012 her passion for this niche area of practice was ignited. Katie is passionate about having a holistic approach to health and well-being and enjoys working collaboratively with the TMJ Physiotherapists and TMJ / Sleep Medicine Dentist on our team. She shares our Core Value of helping our patients achieve Rapid Relief & Lasting Results so that they can return to doing the things they love, pain-free.

‘I believe the key to patient care is understanding that each patient is an individual and has individual needs. Facial pain is multi factorial and requires a team approach to achieve optimal patient outcomes. Once pain is addressed, restoring function and balance to muscles and breathing is vital for long term results. As a TMD patient herself, I can sympathise with patients. I’m very lucky to be able to use my experience, knowledge and personal experience to help patients find answers and achieve long term results’.

When not taking about teeth, jaws and faces, Katie likes spending time with family and friends, camping, water skiing, playing netball and being outdoors. She also rather enjoys cooking and eating good food.
