I am in charge of the day-to-day operations of the orthodontic surgeries in our practice. I also manage staff training and development, front office and staff scheduling, and patient communications. I really enjoy the environment we have created at Lane Orthodontics. It is bright and fresh, a place that is not only fun for us but also our patients. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family!
You will find me assisting Dr Lane with routine adjustments. I make sure our treatments are continuing as planned and that your oral hygiene is on the right path. I'm also the first person to see your beautiful new smile as I remove all your braces- lucky me! Lane Orthodontics is a friendly but professional working environment. I believe the patients feel the same level of respect and professionalism whilst being completely comfortable. I am a busy working Mum who enjoys roller blading, netball, baking and reading. My fun fact is that I played the bag pipes for 5 years in high school!
I help Dr Lane with routine adjustments and am there to remove your braces when the time comes. I am also here to ensure that your treatment continues as planned and that you stay on track with your oral hygiene. I love working at Lane Orthodontics as it is a caring & fun environment. In my spare time I like going to the gym & exploring the beautiful tropics of Cairns with my family! My fun fact is that I was previously a dentist in Peru, so can now speak Spanish, Portuguese & Italian – Hola!
As the receptionist at Lane Orthodontics, I am one of the smiling faces you will see when you walk through our doors. I contribute to the smooth and timely running of our office. I help patients and their families with all their enquiries over the phone and in person. I assist with making appointments for our new and existing patients and assist with any financial queries that they may have. I love to see a patient's smiling faces on our appointment log on touch screen and the excitement kids have when I tell them "we have iPad's"! Outside of here I like to go fishing, camping, baking or volunteering my time with the Australian Coastguard in Cairns.

Dental Imaging Coordinator
I share my time between our x-ray clinic and reception. I have recently completed my Certificate IV in Dental Assisting so my main role is to co-ordinate all your dental imaging and SureSmile requirements as prescribed by Dr Lane. I ensure that patients’ 3D scans are readily available to the orthodontist as these scans provide extremely useful information throughout our patients’ orthodontic journey. I have been a huge fan of our practice since Dr Lane gave me my smile back in 2008. I love how well our team shares ideas and works together. We make sure all our patients receive a positive experience and service throughout their entire treatment. I split my free time between, family, pets, visiting the beach and playing futsal.
I am right in the thick of all treatments. You’ll find me assisting with all chairside procedures, doing infection control, and also in the lab. As a coordinator, I also share this information with patients and parents and help them schedule treatments that are appropriately and efficiently timed. Our practice is about more than braces. We bring you smiling and friendly faces with every visit. That’s a guarantee. I love to spend time with my husband and three sons whether camping, boating, or hosting a neighbourhood barbecue.
My job is to make your experience unforgettable for its comfort and quality. I take time to get to know our patients and families. I believe that good treatment shouldn’t demand important sacrifices of your life outside our office. I work to arrange appointments that optimise both patient and staff schedules. Watching patient reactions after their braces are removed is one of the most rewarding parts of this job. The daughter of an Ingham cane farmer, I am happily married with three sons and two dogs. I enjoy spending time with my family. I also like running, reading, and keeping fit at the gym.
As a Treatment Coordinator I assist with all chairside procedures and am here to ensure that all patients receive the best possible treatment at every appointment. I am a very bubbly and happy person and love making patients feel comfortable during their treatment. I love working at Lane Orthodontics because all the staff are always happy and smiling and we all work great as a team. Outside of work I enjoy camping or going to the river or park with my husband and two lovely children. I also enjoy being creative and making invitations and stationary for weddings and other special occasions.
I assist with all chairside procedures and labratory work. In November 2016 I completed my Cretificate III in Dental Assisting and am trained in all areas of the practice. I love making people smile and having fun at work. My fun fact is that I can sing the alphabet backwards!
Trainee Dental Assistant
I spend most of my time cleaning and sterilising instruments. I also help the other nurses by assisting them with photographs and completing the end of day procedures. In my free time I like racing Go Carts!
