Melany Pollock is a local Mackay girl. In 2008, she graduated from University of Queensland, Brisbane with a Bachelor of Oral health (Dental Hygiene/Dental Therapy). For 2 years, she traveled all over the world with her husband and returned to Mackay late 2012 and started working here at Plaza Dental.
She has 7 years’ local experience and worked in London as a hygienist in private practice whilst she was living over there in 2011/12. Her focus as a Hygienist at Plaza Dental is primarily on the preventive and management aspect of dentistry. Melany is able to spend more time with her patients than the dentists, and as such can really help people maintain healthy teeth and gums.
As a Therapist, she gets to enjoy the role of working with children from the age of 4-17 in all aspects of dentistry alongside the dentists. Again because she is able to spend more time with the kids she is able to build rapport and provide education so our patients grow up with the best possible teeth and habits that will stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives.
Melany works closely with all the Dentists at Plaza Dental and this close working relationship allows to give our patients the best possible outcomes.
Away from work she loves spending time with her husband Daniel, son Jack and plays Netball and enjoys keeping fit and healthy. Unfortunately she also supports Collingwood in both AFL and Netball.
