Dr Clare Straker, BDent (USyd)
Dr Clare grew up in Woy Woy and as a child had a heart to help people. From as early as she can remember, she wanted to work in the medical field, and her passion to study dentistry became apparent when she started to work as a Dental Assistant whilst at high school. Dr Clare grew up in Woy Woy and went on to study her Bachelor of Dentistry at Sydney University.
Fast forward a few years and Ocean Dental Woy Woy was opened – the second dental practice that Dr Clare and her husband Andrew opened together. We have been caring for our community of Woy Woy for over seven years now. In that time, we have come to know our patient base and their families with great familiarity. We love to make healthy smiles that last from children to the elderly.
Dr Clare is continually studying to keep up with the ever-changing environment of dentistry, using the latest techniques and technology to bring you the best patient care. She has a special interest in growth, development, function and breathing to assist with jaw size, shape and position for optimum health and orthodontic outcomes. Dr Clare completed her General Orthodontic Residency in 2015 under the guidance of Dr Steve Galella from the USA.
Dr Clare takes the time to build great rapport with all ages and lifestyles of her patients. She makes anxious people feel at ease and strives to encourage her patients to take control of their oral health decisions. We focus on preventative lifelong care to maintain overall health and wellbeing. We aim to have you looking fantastic and feeling comfortable and confident with your smile.
