Kelli Nash is the friendly and highly skilled practice manager at Maven Dental Cairns City. Kelli joined the Cairns practice in May 1986 and has been an integral part of the practice since. She began her dental career as a dental assistant, completing her Certificate III in Dental Assisting in 1991. Over the years she has furthered her professional development and gained experience across a number of roles, including: assisting chairside, reception, infection control, sterilisation, stock control, book keeping, and practice management.
Working alongside an enthusiastic team, Kelli strives to ensure that patient comfort and communication are of the highest priority. In her role as practice manager, she strives to support this by helping patients feel welcomed and relax throughout their dental appointment. Kelli also goes above and beyond to discuss future treatments with patients, ensuring they understand and feel comfortable with the care being provided.
Kelli, while fascinated by all facets of dentistry, holds particular interests in surgical procedures, implant placement, and crown/bridge work. Although equipped with a wealth of knowledge, she looks forward to being able to further her skills and knowledge in the near future. In the meantime, she enjoys being able to share her current knowledge of private practice operation with the dental students at the local James Cook University.
Away from the practice, Kelli enjoys spending time with her family, catching up with friends over dinner and drinks, and travelling around Australia (usually every 2 years, exploring somewhere new). She also has interests in camping, water skiing and fishing.
