Highly experienced dental hygienist, Wendy Steadman-Jones, was welcomed to the Maven Dental Lismore in October 2017. Since obtaining her Diploma in Dental Hygiene in 1982 from the Institue of Dental Health and Training at the Royal Air Force Halton (UK), Wendy has gone on to gain over 35 years' experience.
Through the course of her career, Wendy has worked in both public and private practice in Australia and internationally, including postnatal clinics, mental health units, physically disadvantaged units, aged care facilities, schools and military rehabilitation centres. She has also furthered her studies completing her Diploma in Dental Health Education.
As a dental hygienist, Wendy is passionate about providing gentle, therapeutic dental hygiene care to her patients and empowering each individual to achieve an improved oral environment. She is highly compassionate and takes the time to listen to her patients' needs and concerns, and embodies an holistic approach to help establish and maintain optimal oral health.
Wendy is presently interested in the oral-systemic health link - a relatively new research into the oral microbiome and it's connection to general wellbeing. She is also a member of AHPRA, DHAA and DPL.
Away from the practice, Wendy is often found spending time with her husband and participating in various outrigger and cycling events. She also loves socialising with friends, visiting family overseas and travelling.
