At the time of her dental therapy studies, Clare worked as a dental assistant, where she recognised the benefits of preventative dentistry. This led her to return to uni in the early 2000s to study dental hygiene.
After graduating, she worked as a hygienist in Sydney, gaining valuable experience in both orthodontics and general dentistry.
In 2008 Clare moved to Orange to be with family, and started with the Hill Street dental surgery. Clare loves living in Orange with her husband and two young sons.
