Ashely Webster

ORAL HEALTH THERAPIST

Ashley joined the Channon Lawrence team as an Oral Health Therapist in early 2016.

Graduating from La Trobe University with a Bachelor of Oral Health Science, Ashley has since split her time between private practice and volunteer placements.

Within private practice, Ashley broadened her knowledge in the areas that hold particular interest to her – orthodontics, aged care and special needs dentistry. For her volunteer placement, Ashley partook in the ‘Filling the Gap’ outreach program. She was placed in an Aboriginal Co-operation just outside of Darwin where she practiced Oral Health Therapy along with educational roles under the guidance of an experienced dentist.

Ashley is a perfect fit for Channon Lawrence Dental with her sweet, calming and gentle nature. Not only will she have you relaxed for your individual preventative care visits, but she also enthusiastically partners with you for your ongoing health maintenance program.

 

Outside of work you will find Ashley travelling or staying fit with her love of Cross fit, touch football and netball.
