About our speakers:
Shae graduated from the Bachelor of Oral Health at the University of Melbourne in
2015. During her final year of study, she completed an elective study unit on
radiation-induced side effects in patients with head and neck cancer. This unit
included a placement at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, where Shae’s passion for
managing patients with special needs arose. Since graduating, Shae has worked
within the dental oncology unit as an oral health therapist, as well as in the private
sector. Currently, Shae is working part time at Peter Mac, and is also studying a
Master of Public Health. Shae’s role within the dental oncology unit is heavily
focused on the prevention and management of treatment-induced side effects in the
oral cavity. Since graduating, Shae has spoken at various conferences, including at
the Australian Dental Congress in Adelaide in 2019.
Margaret commenced working in the dental oncology department at Petermac in July 2014.
She had previously worked in the private dental sector in the areas of periodontics,
orthodontics, pediatrics and general dentistry as well as 11 years in the dental department at
the Royal Children’s Hospital.
She has also taught and tutored in dental radiography and periodontal instrumentation as
well as clinical demonstrator in the undergraduate clinics for BOH students at the University
Margaret has enjoyed all aspects of her dental practice however it is in the hospital based
sector that she finds her work to be the most rewarding.
Being a part of a patient’s treatment journey, offering support both clinically and sometimes
emotionally is incredibly rewarding and it is a privilege to be given the opportunity to do so.
