Graduating with a Bachelor of Oral Health degree from the University of Adelaide in 2004, Melissa’s outstanding academic achievement was recognised with awards for excellence. Her commitment to lifelong learning led her to complete postgraduate studies in 2019, extending her scope of practice to include examinations and restorative care for adults.
