Principle Dentist and Co owner of Maylands Dental Centre
Dr. Gemma is originally from the UK and completed her Bachelor of Dentistry at the University of Bristol in 2002. She later returned to complete her Post Graduate Diploma in General Dental Studies focusing on Periodontology, Oral Surgery, Dental Anxiety and Sedation. Dr. Gemma has extensive dental experience in both the private and public sector and previously owned her own dental clinic in Dublin before deciding to relocate to Australia in 2012 for a fresh start. Dr. Gemma continued to work in a principle role in general practice before acquiring Maylands Dental Centre with her husband, Dr. Scott Mennell early last year.
At Maylands Dental Centre, Dr. Gemma continues to enjoy all aspects of general dentistry but has a ‘special interest’ in preventative, patient education and children’s dentistry. She has had much success treating many of our anxious/dental phobia patients or patients that have not seen the dentist for many years with her non judgmental and understanding manner. Dr. Gemma prides herself in providing a professional yet gentle, caring approach to treatment and is happy to see patients of any age. In her time away from work, she looks after their young daughter Sia and enjoys keeping fit, reading, travelling and relaxing weekends with her family.
Dr. Gemma is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
