Dr. Sara Roberts
Dr Sara Roberts’ philosophy is to treat all her patients as if they were a family member.
Graduating from Adelaide University in 2004 with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery and in 2010 for her postgraduate Doctor of Clinical Dentistry in Orthodontics, Sara has worked tirelessly for the last decade to not only treat her patients but to educate them.
Choosing to start her career close to home, Dr Roberts worked after university in the Adelaide Hills area, Eastwood and West Beach areas.
Dr Roberts chose orthodontics, so she could work in a field of dentistry where changing someone’s smile can also change their life. When she sees patients on a regular basis, a strong relationship is built and she can get to play a small, but hopefully significant part of their life.
If Dr Roberts wasn’t an orthodontist she would have become an engineer – safe to say, we are glad she chose orthodontics.
