Leonie Turra - Dental Therapist/Hygienist
Leonie Turra is a Dental Therapist and a Hygienist. She graduated as a dental therapist in 1993 and spent her early years working for Sunshine Coast Regional Health services in QLD. She later recognised the need for quality dental care for children in remote indigenous communities and then spent 5 years travelling in a mobile dental unit throughout the Kimberley region. It was during this time that she developed an interest in Periodontics and Orthodontics.
In 2004, Leonie completed a Diploma of Dental Hygiene in Perth and relocate to Darwin to work at the Darwin Orthodontic Centre as a hygienist. Leonie then joined us here at the Laser Dentistry in 2007.
