ABOUT REFRESH DENTAL SPA
At Refresh Dental Spa ensuring our patients enjoy optimum dental health and feel good about themselves is our highest priority. That’s why, in addition to a comprehensive range of essential and cosmetic dental services, we provide a range of facial cosmetic services as part of a dento-facial treatment plan to enhance the results from your dental treatments. For many people, the reality is that once they stop feeling self-conscious about their smile and other features, what’s within begins to shine through.
If you have been putting off visiting a dentist because you are concerned about the cost or you feel anxious, don’t worry. We have a range of payment options and we are experts at making you feel relaxed and comfortable. The important thing is that you get the treatment that you need, the rest we can work out through open communication and discussing your options.
We also understand that work and family life place huge demands on your time. We have efficient systems to ensure that we run to time consistently without compromising our level of care and attention. We respect your time but we will never make you feel rushed.
Our team has also been thoughtfully put together with each member completely dedicated to their role and applying our core principle of complete care and attention to the individual needs of our clients. In 2018 Refresh Dental Spa was joined by Dr Nick Sheptooha and his team from Nick Sheptooha Dental further increasing the depth of talent and range of services we can provide.

Noreen – Practice Manager
I am currently focussed on reception management and in-house social media coordinating. Also studying a Bachelor of Film and Screen Media, at Griffith University, I have been assisting the team within the practice over a number of years and like to bring a modern flare and warmth to our interactions with our patients and colleagues. I enjoy watching the latest new releases in the film industry, spending time with friends and photography.
I have a certificate IV in dental assisting and have been employed in the industry for 15 years. I’ve been fortunate to have lived abroad, where I qualified in fitness and pilates instruction and taught in both Brunei and Australia. After returning to Australia I returned to dental assisting and continued teaching Pilates until the end of 2018. I enjoy all areas of general dentistry, including assisting in theatre (hospital), specialist dental periodontics, endodontics and reception. Now I’m happily assisting Dr Kristina Cain. We love achieving beautiful smiles together with cosmetic dentistry and facial injectables. Outside of work my passion and biggest joy is ballroom dancing. I also play the saxophone and write poetry. I keep active by walking daily along the beautiful Brisbane river. I have two grown up children and a beautiful rescue greyhound – Toby.
I’ve spent the last few years in Ireland and have a bit of background in cafes, charity shops and hair salons. I studied Multimedia Production where I got to do work experience for a known newspaper. Coming back to Australia, I began my journey into the dental industry only recently and yet I have learnt so much. Entering this industry has educated me on many things. Since I just entered it. I think one of the best things about this job personally is that I can improve my own oral health. Outside of work I try my best to progress with current or new skills. I hope to learn more, such as new languages very soon.
