Dr Vashy Dolezal (Coffs Harbour & Woolgoolga & Grafton)

Dr Vashy was born in the Czech Republic & came to Australia at the age of 3 with his parents. He does speak Czech although poorly as he doesn't get the opportunity to speak it often. While in high school he knew he wanted a career in health, so he could make a difference to peoples lives. In Year 10 he did work experience at Sydney Dental Hospital and that was when he decided to pursue a career in dentistry. He felt that there was nothing more satisfying than to help a person achieve a beautiful smile. It improved their self esteem and relieving people of pain is a wonderful thing. It changes their overall mental and physical health. Dr Vashy graduated from Sydney University in 1988, working in private practice in Canberra for 2 years. From there he purchased his own practice in the Blue Mountains which he had for 20 years before going for the sea change in 2010. He is a keen fisherman and still loves the mountains, so Coffs Harbour & Grafton is the best of both worlds. Consistent care is important so each time you come to our practice you will always see the dentist of your choice. It's great to get that rapport with your dentist. He wants to help his patients achieve a pain free smile & practices all facets of dentistry with a special interest in crown and bridge work.

Dr Cecilia Mwanje

Dr Cecilia Mwanje was born and raised in Liverpool, UK. She studied dentistry at University of Birmingham, UK, graduating in 2000. After working for 2 years within the health system, Cecilia felt the need to travel so she headed to the place she always wanted to visit, Australia and quickly fell in love with the country. She spent a year travelling and working in regional towns around Australia which was invaluable to her as a dentist. She loved this experience and it gave her a fondness for the Australian people.
Upon returning to UK in 2003, Cecilia spent the subsequent 13 years working in both the health system and private practice. She wanted to return to Australia and did so in 2016 moving to the beautiful city of Coffs Harbour where she has made it her home. The people of the coast have made it an easy transition and have made her feel so welcome.
Cecilia is passionate about all aspects of general dentistry and aims to make the patients experience as pleasant as possible. She understands that it’s sometimes daunting for patients and makes it her priority to put their mind at ease with her gentle touch. Cecilia works in Coffs, Grafton and Bellingen and would love to meet you and your family.

Mrs Wendy Backman (Coffs Harbour & Woolgoolga)

After growing up in Coffs Harbour, Wendy Backman moved to Sydney to pursue a career in Dental Therapy (Dental Therapists provide dentistry exclusively to children and young adults).
Graduating from Westmead College of Dental Therapy in 1996, Wendy spent several years in the public health dental clinics in Sydney.
Missing the coastal lifestyle, Wendy returned to Coffs Harbour in 2006 to raise her family. She has been working at Brad Pearce Dental since 2007. Wendy works in the Coffs Harbour and Woolgoolga practices and enjoys being part of a dynamic and professional team.
Being a mum of 2 young children, Wendy is very in-tune with the oral health needs of young people. "I firmly believe that good Dental habits should be established early in life," says Wendy. "This means mums, dads and carers getting stuck into brushing and good dietary habits from the beginning."
"We set a good example for our kids by looking after our own oral health as adults and having regular dental visits that become part of the whole family's routine."
"Dental problems can have a negative impact on general well being and self-esteem," says Wendy. "Therefore, I am very focused on the preventative side of dentistry."
With her kind and gentle approach, Wendy has no problem helping little people, anxious patients and first timers feel more comfortable about coming along to the dentist.
