Susan Middleton, Practice Manager

Susan MiddletonAlways friendly and welcoming, Susan enjoys engaging with new patients and their families when they come to our clinic. “I pride myself on managing a well-run professional practice by providing training and support to my colleagues.”

Education and Experience

Susan earned a Certificate of Dental Therapy from the Public Health Department in 1981. In 1998, she began her career at Harmony Orthodontics as a dental therapist. She was inspired to study dental therapy because she had braces as a teenager and was amazed by the beautiful smile her orthodontist helped her achieve.

Outside the Practice

When she’s not working, Susan enjoys living an active life. A mother of four sons, she enjoys walking, reading, playing golf, going to the beach and cooking. Supporting her children at their sporting activities and getting together for family catch-ups are also favourite ways to spend time.

Dawn Griffiths, Patient Relations Coordinator

Dawn GriffithsFinding orthodontics fascinating, Dawn loves to see the changes in patients’ teeth during their visits to the practice. “The best part of this job is seeing patients smiling with joy on the day their braces are removed.”

Switching Career Paths

Dawn completed two years of training to be a nurse when she decided that it was not the career for her. Whilst deciding what her next career move would be, she saw an advertisement looking for a dental assistant. “That was almost 30 years ago, and I’ve been working in the dental field ever since, both in the UK, where I was born and here in Australia.” Dawn has worked at our practice since 2014.

She earned certificates in the UK: National Certificate for Dental Assistants and Radiography for Dental Assistants. Read more about Dawn…
