Shai-Lee Kennedy

Shai began her career in dentistry as a dental assistant in community dental practice in Bentleigh in 2008, meanwhile gaining both her Certificate III and Certificate IV (dental radiography) in Dental Assisting from RMIT.

This is where Shai found her love for being involved in the community to improve the oral health of adults and children alike. Shai felt that continuing her studies as a dental hygienist came very naturally and was looking forward to further her opportunities to lessen the burden of disease and provide oral health education and treatment. while doing her Advanced Diploma of Oral Health at RMIT Shai maintained a part time dental assistant position at a private dental clinic and then once she graduated she was able to obtain position as a Dental Hygienist there.

As a Dental Hygienist Shai likes treating all patients in a holistic manner to obtain not just better oral health but overall health. In particular she loves to treat children, adults who suffer from periodontal disease and she has an ever-growing passion for preventative treatment within orthodontics and sleep apnoea assessments.

Shai is a member of the Australian Dental Hygiene Association and wishes one day to teach Dental Hygiene to new prospective students.

In her spare times Shai raises her young family and enjoys attending sports events and travelling.
