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.

Kristina is available to see patients Monday – Friday.

From left to right; Matthew, Bless, Angela, Angelique, Linda, Kristina, Noreen and Nick.

Noreen – Practice Manager

Noreen is our exceptional Practice Manager. With many and varied years of experience in the dental industry, Noreen is a true professional in every sense of the word. She believes in delivering excellent customer service, supporting her team and keeping up to date with both professional and personal development. Her interests include spending quality time with her family and friends, health and fitness and supporting her favourite NRL team, the Brisbane Broncos.

Matt

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.

Angela

Angela has been in the practice for many years ensuring the highest quality of sterilisation according to accreditation standards whilst also servicing our clients on reception. Having also worked in the banking industry, Ange is very particular and is a delight to have on the team! She has two teenage boys and the best ideas for Gluten and dairy-free recipes!

 

 

Simone

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.

Amy

While I was is yr 12 at school a friend of mine went to PNG on a YWAM boat where they travelled into the highlands with Dentists to help the villagers with their dental hygiene. I loved hearing about it and thought that was amazing hence why I applied for a dental assistant job. I’ve now been in the industry for five years and absolutely love it. Its a great job as I have had the privilege of working with some amazing dentists and the work they provide helps so many people, its wonderful to see. Outside of work, I like to spend time with family and friends, have quiet time being creative, exploring the countryside and finding beautiful swimming water holes.

Harmony

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.
