Measham Kid’s Dental has an experienced and caring dental team. Sandra, the principal dentist, opened the purpose-built practice in 2014 with a vision of offering affordable private treatment in a friendly, approachable, and professional way. Since then our practice has grown mainly through personal recommendation. We take great pride in being a source of comfort, reassurance, and confidence for our patients, which is reflected in our values statement below:
We personally introduce, explain, and complete each therapy for each patient and encourage our patients to be active in making decisions regarding their treatment. Sandra and her team invite you to come and visit our practice where you can witness firsthand our commitment to our patients.

Before joining Sandra and the team at Measham Dental, I had previously enjoyed over 26 years as lead receptionist/dispenser in a local, much respected GP practice where I learned the skills to build a strong and trusted rapport with patients and their families. I have two daughters, both established teachers within the Measham district catchment area. I'm a very keen gardener, growing vegetables and flowers from seed. I enjoy walking and cycling the National Forest trails together with my family. I'm also a very keen cook and cake baker.
