Andrea is an author, speaker, trainer and dental consultant who specialises in practice lifestyle and organisation.
She has four decades of experience in various roles across more than 200 dental practices and has worked with more than 1800 personnel in both the public and private sectors.
Andrea is committed to addressing what she calls the daily irony experienced by most dental personnel – "they go to work each day with the aim of improving the health of others but actually end up compromising their own".
Dental personnel deal with stress, injury and illness everyday and the consequences can have a devastating effect not only on the individual but on the team as a whole and ultimately on the business. And the fallout is not left at the door when personnel leave work. The negative effects of an unhealthy workplace can have serious impacts in their private lives too. There are no winners in this scenario, just losers and often many more than we realise.
Andrea is dedicated to inspiring a cultural shift in the way dentists and their teams work with the ultimate aim being to create healthier and happier dental personnel, patients and practices.
dental & me is a new concept in caring for dental professionals everywhere.
Andrea, through dental & me, works to raise awareness of the significant challenges facing dental professionals in their everyday lives and to dismantle the accepted belief that a career in dentistry will involve stress, injury, illness and burnout.
More and more we are coming to understand that our wellness is at the very heart of living a fulfilling life and dental & me is ushering in much needed change by actively supporting and promoting the wellbeing of dental professionals both inside and outside the practice.
Andrea is the founder of Organised Dental, a company committed to helping dentists work smarter so they can live better.
Andrea has successfully combined her love of dentistry and research, her passion for organising and wellbeing and her four decades of experience in the dental sector to create what she calls the Five Foundations:
The Patient Experience
It is through these Five Foundations that Andrea helps dentists and their teams create better practices because for any business to grow it must have strong foundations to build upon and dental practices are no exception.
