Karen Ward

Karen is our in-house dental therapist who is dedicated to ensuring that all of our younger patients have, and maintain great oral health! After she graduated in 1978, Karen worked for QLD Health for 25 years based in the Townsville, Whitsunday and Nanbour regions. Karen also managed to complete her Diploma in Frontline Management during this time. 

After her time with QLD health, Karen went on to spend five years in Private Practice for 1300 Smiles in Townsville where she perfected her clinical expertise in working with children. 

As a qualified Dental Therapist, Karen has extensive experience in treating children from 0-17 years for services including check-ups, cleans, x-rays, the extraction of baby teeth and all restorative or preventative work. 

Being a mother of three boys, Karen's friendly and warm personality allows her to quickly develop a great rapport with all her patients to create a fun and positive dental experience. Karen looks to make the relationship between her and her patient's families a longstanding one founded on mutual respect and trust to help the children she treats develop strong and lasting oral hygiene routines, maintaining their teeth for the long term.
