One of Dr Andrea’s most memorable experiences involved a patient at the Portsea Army Camp for refugees from Kosovo. Dr Andrea was the dentist in charge for the camp located at the Portsea Army Barracks, Victoria, Australia. A patient Dr Andrea treated had lost his front teeth while avoiding a grenade and would walk with his head down, ashamed to show his missing teeth. After Dr Andrea rebuilt his smile, he walked with his head high again. The entire camp was elated with the change in the boy’s demeanour and to see him smile again. This is one of Dr Andrea’s proudest moments in her career.

Outside of the Practice

In her spare time, Dr Andrea likes to balance her work and home life by spending valuable time with her daughter and family, going for walks, being out in nature and sharing good meals with her loved ones. Dr Andrea loves to keep fit with gym work, yoga and her beloved pilates sessions.
