Growing up in rural China, Dr Wendy Huang had little exposure to preventive dentistry and had to travel for hours to see a dentist.
Studying the Bachelor of Biomedicine and then the Doctor of Dentistry at Melbourne she says, “I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have studied at the top dental school in Australia.”
It was the beautiful environment, opportunities to meet global experts in her field and making life-long international friendships that inspired Wendy most as she prepared for her career as a dentist.
Wendy now works as a General Dentist in St Helens, Tasmania, after practising in various public and private clinics in Melbourne. She is passionate about community engagement and dental health promotion and has been involved in bringing dental care to her local aged care home and promoting dental health of children at schools in her community.
It has always been my dream to pursue dentistry in a developed country. Helping people is a very rewarding experience, their smiles and satisfaction always make me happy.
