Hi, my name is Joseph Hanna and I am the first ever Oral Health Therapist at Casey Dental Group. I have a passion not only for quality dentistry, but also for paediatric care.
After completing a Bachelor of Oral Health Sciences at La Trobe University, I have since had extensive experience with children, ranging from a dental truck to private practice. My strengths include being able to explain procedures in a manner relatable to children, as well as ensuring their experience is as fun as possible. I am well experienced in dealing with children with intellectual disabilities including Autism and Down syndrome, and pride myself on being able to manage and comfort even the most dentally anxious patients – adopting techniques of dental desensitisation.
My passion extends from my own past experiences as a child at the dental chair, when my dentist made it a fun experience. This, in turn, kindled the joys of going above and beyond to ensure children enjoy their dental experience, employing tools and ways aiming to make children laugh and relax. A fun dental experience doesn’t come at sacrifice to quality, and that is my philosophy. I wish to make your child’s dental visit fun, exciting and memorable, rather than full of tears and fears.
Parents, feel free to book yourself in with myself also, I am happy to see the whole family :)
