Dr Caitlin Stephens graduated from James Cook University in Cairns with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 2014. During her final year of university and since graduation she has worked around Australia to broaden her exposure to different dental opportunities and environments. She has practised in Cairns, Mackay, Tasmania, Canberra, and has now settled on the Sunshine Coast.
Caitlin is a very enthusiastic learner, who actively strives to stay up to date with modern dentistry research and practices. In 2017, Caitlin successfully completed the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons Primary Examinations to further her knowledge in the 6 fundamental sciences of clinical dentistry.
A gentle clinician, Caitlin focuses on patient-centred care and strives to deliver pain-free dentistry. She practises conservative dental treatment and believes in a preventive focus of care. Caitlin particularly enjoys paediatric dentistry, including Nitrous Oxide (happy gas), but also enjoys oral surgery, emergency and cosmetic dentistry.
Outside her working world, Caitlin is a keen traveller and a “foodie”, always keen to discover good coffee shops and restaurants. She has a mischievous black Pug called Frank, who she is very attached to.
