Dental Hygienist


Hello everyone, my name is Yurie.

I am a registered dental hygienist in both Australia and Japan. I also have worked in both New Zealand and the UK as a dental nurse and was a registered dental nurse in the UK.

I immigrated with my husband to Australia in 2013 and have completed my exams to become a dental hygienist through the Australian Dental Council in 2015. I’ve been registered as a dental hygienist since 2016.

I joined Modern Orthodontics in December 2017. You will see me taking records of your teeth, placing attachments for aligner treatment and removing braces for you under orthodontists' instruction, checking your retainers and teaching you how to brush your teeth etc.

I love seeing people leave with a confident smile on their face when the treatment is completed.

Outside of work, I enjoy watching movies and finding good cafes. Also I am a mother of 2 boys that keep me busy!

I look forward to seeing you all at Modern Orthodontics!

(Yuire is currently on maternity leave. We look forward to her return! )


Oral Health Therapist


Christel graduated from the University of Queensland in 2007 with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Oral Health). She has had extensive experience in General Dentistry, including working for the School Dental Service in rural Queensland. But after moving back to Victoria, Christel discovered her passion was in Orthodontics and has never looked back!

Christel loves getting to know patients and helping them on their Orthodontic journey... but best of all, she loves seeing their confident, happy smiles at the end of treatment.

When she's not working, Christel enjoys fitness pursuits including pilates, yoga, hiking and skiing. She also loves travelling, good food and coffee!


AHPRA Registered Dental Hygienist 


Angela grew up in the small country town of Warragul in Gippsland, before moving to the city to complete her Bachelor of Oral Health at the University of Melbourne in 2016. Although dually qualified in both dental hygiene and therapy, Angela has always had a passion for orthodontics and now alternates working part-time between two specialist orthodontic clinics. She loves being involved in the process that helps patients achieve a beautiful, healthy smile that they are proud of and seeing the confidence and self-esteem that follows.

Angela loves travelling, visual communication & design, reading, eating and attempting to keep her indoor plants alive.
