Josie Ruth


Josie began her career in the dental industry as a dental assistant in 2008. She quickly learned that she had a love for dentistry and after years of working as a dental assistant, she continued her passion by studying a Bachelor of Oral Health Therapy at Curtin University in Perth, WA. Since graduating in 2014, Josie has worked primarily with children, but also loves having a good chat with (and treating) her adult patients.

As an oral health therapist, Josie specialises in restorative treatment (such as fillings) for children 18 years and under and has a focus on preventive dentistry and oral health education. Josie enjoys making dentistry fun and enjoyable for children and puts them at ease from their very first visit. Due to her caring and patient nature, you can be assured that your child will be given the upmost attention and care by Josie.

After calling Perth home for 12 years, Josie, her husband and their beloved dog are happy to now be Melbournians and part of the bc dental team.
