Elena was raised in St. Petersburg, Russia and in her early years moved to the U.S. with her family. In 1999 she received her dental assisting qualifications, beginning her career in dentistry.
She then returned to study to obtain her Registered Dental Hygiene degree. In 2005 she graduated as a dental hygienist in Portland, Oregon and had stayed working in the same office for nine years.
Elena and her husband moved to Australia in 2014 with the ambition to explore its wonder and beauty.
After completing her Australian Dental Council exams, to enable Elena to practice dental hygiene in Australia, she also registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
Across her career, Elena has undertaken numerous Continuing Professional Development courses and is passionate about her continuous improvement in her work.
'I love to make my patients feel comfortable and at ease whilst giving them that ‘clean teeth-smile’ and empowering them with their own oral health.'
In her free time, Elena loves to travel and explore with her husband, keep in touch with family and friends through Skype, take walks and learn all about healthy living.
'The biggest highlight in my ‘dental day’ is seeing the overall improvement in the health of my patients.'
