Meet the Moss Vale Dental Team – Mary O’Neill
We want all our patients to feel comfortable and welcomed when they visit and we thought it was high time we introduced you to our valued team.
Meet Mary O’Neill
What is your role at the office? What will we find you doing at the office?
Top Gun Dental Assistant: you will find me assisting Patrick as well as Dr Cho and Magdalena Cree in the treatment rooms, helping out at reception, doing useful things in our dental lab.
How long have you been in the dental industry?
Six and a half years.
How/why did you start working in the industry?
Patrick was advertising and after a long and busy career in retail I thought I would give it a go so here I am!
What is your favourite part of your job?
I really enjoy seeing a patient’s progress and how happy/ confident they feel at the end of their treatment.
Do you have a special piece of equipment/ tool/ new toy that you use at work that you would like to tell us about?
We have a new autoclave: Melag 2 (which of course means twice the sterilising power!)
What is your secret superpower?
I can run 20kms up and down hills really fast. I am also a formidable arm-wrestling opponent.
What do you get up to when you’re not at work?
My fur baby Lola, the stick obsessed Kelpie, is my bushwalking partner. I’m a qualified massage therapist (you can find me @balancedbody). I love running, training and men in uniform.
What’s your best tip on keeping a healthy mouth?
Brush twice a day and ease up on the red frogs (note to self).
