Hygienist -  Jemima Plumridge  BOH

Jemima commenced working at the practice in 2011, after she graduated from University of Newcastle and moved from Sydney to Orange. Jemima's dental career started 10 years prior to this as a dental assistant and her passion for dentistry has never waned, only gotten stronger over the years. Once arriving in Orange Jemima found her feet  and is strongly cemented in the community. 7 years ago Jemima started her martial arts journey in Orange, by starting Karate and Mauy thai, but finally found her passion in Brazilian Jiu jitsu. Jemima's greatest passion in life is being a mother.

 Jemima  loves to make your visit to the dental surgery a personal one, and has the ability in her room for patients to choose the music that makes them feel more comfortable in their visit. So a music list is more than welcome with your visits with her.

The mouth is the gateway to the body. A healthier mouth means that it has less ability to have a negative affect on the rest of the body. Jemima takes educating patients in keeping the mouth as healthy as possible very important. Jemima offers periodontal and maintenance therapy to help maintain healthy teeth, gum and bone.
