Jacinta began her dental career as a dental assistant in 2013, working in both the public and private sector. Wanting to achieve more within the industry, Jacinta furthered her studies to become a dental hygienist. During her time as a student, she was selected to travel to Nepal with La Trobe University and take part in a volunteer program providing dental care to underprivileged communities, a trip which she describes as once in a lifetime.
Graduating from the Advanced Diploma of Oral Health in 2019, Jacinta was awarded the Oral B Excellence in Preventative Oral Care. This is a reflection of her strong beliefs around the importance of prevention and education in oral health. She is an enthusiastic and hard worker, committed to excellence with patient management and care. Jacinta enjoys working alongside other dental practitioners to provide the best possible outcome for patients, with her main focus on empowering patients to improve their own oral health and well-being.
Jacinta is beyond excited to take up a permanent position within Lakeside Dental Care and bring her passion of preventative dental to the wider community.
