As an Oral Health Therapist, Elvina is qualified to complete comprehensive examinations and general dental treatment for patients of all ages, including restorations (fillings), periodontal management and emergency pain assessments.

Elvina is also an academic and lecturer at the Adelaide Dental School, teaching into both undergraduate and post graduate programs, and is completing a Masters in Clinical Education. She has two primary school aged children, and like every busy parent, spends most of her time running around to extra-curricular activities.
