Brittney Whittington

Oral Health Therapist

My name is Brittney, and I am your local Oral Health Therapist. After living around Rockhampton for the last couple of years, I am very excited to be living back in the beautiful Mackay region where I grew up and have the opportunity to look after our local community dental needs.

Some people ask what an Oral Health Therapist (OHT) is, so here is a brief explanation of what I do. I do checks, cleans, fillings, x-rays, periodontal treatment (gum disease), whitening and mouth guards; as well as extractions, pulpotomies (baby root canals), crowns on children and much more!

I treat people of all ages, but I have a special interest in working with the youth in our community. I love creating positive dental experiences for everyone, helping to defeat the stigma that going to the dentist is something scary, allowing the new generation to grow up with a positive view towards their dental visits. I encourage my patient’s to let me know if there is anything I can do to make their appointments more comfortable so they can have a great experience.
