Speciality – Oral Hygiene and Dental Therapy Qualifications – BOH (La Trobe)

Chatelle Wehi graduated from La Trobe University, Bendigo, in 2011 as Bachelor of Oral Health Sciences.

A member of the Smile Solutions team for many years, Chatelle had worked as a dental nurse alongside our dentists and hygienists before tertiary study.

As a dental hygienist and dental therapist Chatelle now works with general dentists and specialist periodontists to maintain and improve oral health outcomes by not only providing an excellent and caring service in the dental chair but also being passionate about prevention through effective education.

Chatelle understands that not everyone enjoys coming to the dentist and she makes an effort to create a positive, comfortable and enjoyable experience for all of her patients. Chatelle also works alongside specialist orthodontists in the Smile Solutions orthodontic tower to assist with treatment and maintenance of fixed braces and Invisalign orthodontics.

In her dental therapist role Chatelle works with a specialist paedodontist to provide a fun and easy experience for kids in the dental setting. She loves telling stories about her mischievous little dog and engaging with kids through play while completing treatments such as dental exams and X-rays and routine dental treatment such as preventative fissure sealants, fillings for decayed baby teeth and assessment of a child’s dental growth pattern with a view to possible early orthodontic assessment. Chatelle believes it is important to communicate well with kids and their parents to ensure a positive time at the dentist and good ongoing oral health through their formative years and beyond.
