Elizabeth Hughes

Bachelor of Oral Health (Newcastle)

Graduating from the University of Newcastle in 2007 with a Bachelor of Oral Health, Elizabeth has been a part of the team of Newcastle dentists at Complete Dental since March 2010.

Never has the saying “prevention is better than cure” been more appropriate than in the dental context. As a practice we place great importance not only on preventing dental and oral disease, but in looking after restorations so that they last as long as possible. Elizabeth is at the forefront of this philosophy as the practice’s dental hygienist.

In addition to her university studies, Elizabeth stays up to date with current research and oral hygiene products by undertaking several professional development courses throughout the year. As dental implants are one of the many services we provide at Complete Dental, Elizabeth has attended courses specifically on implant maintenance. Elizabeth is also qualified to perform dental bleaching procedures within the dental surgery, eliminating the need for a 2 week course of at-home bleaching.

Outside of work, Elizabeth enjoys spending time with friends and family, playing netball and golf. Elizabeth embraces the holiday friendly attitude at Complete Dental and has recently returned from a trip to the USA.
