Julie and Caroline were really pleased to meet DDS 2021 Graduate Dr Gregory Steele who began work there this year. Greg was really enthusiastic about his work in Sale and attributed this to his rural dental placement experience.

Greg said, ‘If I hadn’t had the opportunity and great experience working at La Trobe Community Health (Moe) I would never have considered rural practice- Im so glad I did, I love it here!  I started at the Sale hospital as a new graduate dentist and I have seen my skills and knowledge rapidly develop throughout the year.   This job allows me to make a meaningful impact in the community.  I would encourage anyone who is interested in oral surgery to apply, or anyone looking for a good work-life balance.  Being a public dentist is rewarding and provides a good start to your dental career”.

We love this outcome from our Rural Placements program!
