Oral Health Therapist
Joining the team at Maven Dental Maroochydore in early 2019, Hollie Bendotti is an ambitious, fun and friendly Oral Health Therapist. Hollie grew up on a farm in rural Western Australia and now enjoys travelling around with her career and networking with new people along the way.
After graduating from Curtin University with a Bachelor of Science (Oral Health Therapy) in 2014 Hollie completed the Oral Health Therapist Graduate Year Program (OHTGYP). During this program she travelled across four rural Aboriginal communities in the northern NSW Central Tablelands providing mobile oral health services. Following this, she returned to WA to work in mobile and fixed clinics across rural areas of south-west WA and low-socioeconomic areas of Perth for the public School Dental Service and adult dental service.
Hollie has a keen interest in research that has allowed her to be involved in projects across children’s oral health and dental education. Chasing this interest, it was a job opportunity in Rockhampton that brought her back to Queensland last year and now to our practice here on the Sunshine Coast. As well as working as an OHT at Maven Dental Maroochydore, Hollie is currently working part-time for the UQ School of Dentistry as a Research Assistant and hopes to complete a PhD in the future.
She loves getting to know her patients and tailoring treatment and oral health education to suit their needs. Hollie always endeavours to try and provide children and adults with a comfortable, fun and stress-free appointment so that they are always happy to return and are motivated to maintain good oral health. Her clinical interests lie in the treatment of periodontal disease and she enjoys working with patients to both improve and maintain their periodontal health. As an OHT she is also passionate about children’s oral health and educating them on healthy dental habits to prevent future dental problems.
Away from Maven Dental Maroochydore Hollie enjoys listening to music, cooking and walking her dog. She also loves camping and 4WDing with her partner and visiting family and friends.
