“I love that my job gives me the ability to change someone’s life – whether it be giving a child a very enjoyable first dental visit, setting them up for a very positive dental journey, or giving someone the confidence to smile widely, proudly and without pain! Having known some of my patients for over a decade, it’s been a privilege to have them entrust me with their dental care and I’ve seen the difference good dental health and a beautiful smile has made in their lives. I really enjoy the human side of my work, getting to know the individuals and families I look after, and tailoring my approach to suit them.”
Dr Rachel graduated from Melbourne University with Honours, and has since committed herself to further her knowledge and skills, particularly in the area of Orthodontics (Braces & Invisalign.) She worked for many years in private practice in Ballarat and metropolitan Melbourne, before founding Gisborne Family Dental with her husband Jacob. With three young children of her own, she has a particular interest in treating children where her petite hands, patience and gentle (but firm!) demeanour come in very handy.
When not at work, Rachel is more or less a professional taxi driver, mediator and snack provider to her kids- thus is the life of a mum! Born in Wollongong, NSW, but raised in Melbourne, she loves her coffee and would list her ultimate treat as a skim latte and being able to drink it while it’s still hot 🙂
