Dr Maeghan Dickenson
Maeghan grew up on the South Coast of NSW and after finishing high school, joined the Royal Australian Navy as an Officer for two years before deciding to pursue a career in Dentistry.
She became a Queenslander in 2009 and after many years of study, Maeghan Graduated from the University of Queensland with First Class Honours. She was also awarded the Professor RR Stevens Restorative Dentistry award, The Australian Society of Periodontology prize and the Vardiman Dental Study prize for highest mark of her year.
During her studies, most of her weekends and holidays were spent as a dental assistant learning and observing from many skilled dentists and specialists while picking up tips and tricks along the way. Maeghan is a member of the Australian Dental Association and the Australian Society of Endodontology and enjoys attending many dental courses and workshops to stay abreast of the latest advances in patient care.
Since graduation Maeghan has worked in private practice near Bribie Island and is well known for her gentle and conservative approach to put even the most apprehensive patients at ease and has even had some patients snooze mid treatment.
Maeghan was first introduced to the Avenue Way during the 2016 Avenue Dental Mini Residency and is excited to be a part of the Caloundra family. Maeghan enjoys helping people gain the confidence to smile again and loves to change peoples perspective of dentistry, particularly those who have had poor experiences in the past. Being interested in all aspects of Dentistry means keeping up to date with the latest techniques and advancements to provide her patients outstanding care and ensure that her patients are comfortable and enjoy their visits.
Outside of Dentistry, Maeghan enjoys spending time outdoors playing any kind of sport, staying many hours by the beach and also spending time with her lovely husband and their fur-children Taco the Frenchie + Bonsai the pug. Growing up on the coast, naturally surfing is one of her favourite activities and she enjoys the beautiful warmer waters of the Sunshine Coast.
