#IWD2021: Dr Rachel Garraway

#IWD2021: Dr Rachel Garraway

International Women’s Day 2021 is all about forging a gender equal world. Maven Dental #ChooseToChallenge by celebrating some of the amazing Maven women who contribute to our organisation.

In celebration of #IWD2021, we spoke to Dr Rachel Garraway exploring her career as one of the principal periodontists at Brisbane Implant Dentistry and Perio Care, member of the Maven Clinical Advisory Board and also wife and mum to three teenagers.

After graduating in 1992 with a Bachelor of Dental Science from the University of Queensland, Rachel started her career in private practice in Toowoomba before deciding she wanted to specialise in periodontics. She returned to the University of Queensland to complete her specialist degree and then gained a position in the Department of Periodontology at the Royal London Hospital before returning to practice in Brisbane, where she has been for over 20 years! Rachel is also a Senior Lecturer at the University of Queensland Dental School and a valued member of Maven Dental’s Clinical Advisory Board.

So how does someone balance a highly successful career, with family life plus still find time for themselves? “I have lots of lists to keep me organised, but finding the balance is always a juggle. Some days you are the rooster, some days you are the feather duster! I feel very privileged to have a career that I enjoy immensely and find very rewarding.  In addition, I have a wonderful husband and three teenage children. In any spare time, I love trail running and I belong to two book clubs.”

Dr Rachel Garraway is just one of many inspirational women in the Maven Dental network. Keep an eye out for more profiles of amazing Maven women as we celebrate #IWD2021.
