Her focus has been helping patients maintain good oral hygiene by not only thoroughly and effectively cleaning their teeth, but also educating them on correct oral hygiene practises. “I believe that education is key to good oral hygiene, which is why I take particular care in showing patients how to floss and properly brush their teeth, and how plaque affects their teeth and gums.”

Her high standards, professional and educational growth and depth of knowledge on patient care makes her a valuable addition to the Snö team.

Michaela Green

Michaela started her career as a Dental Hygienist in South Africa where she worked alongside one of South Africa’s prominent orthodontists. Working closely with the orthodontics team allowed her to incorporate orthodontic considerations and understand the pivotal role dental hygiene plays in the success and outcomes of orthodontic treatment.

Her role as the dental hygienist in orthodontics, as it is a key and important one! From education to assessment, to supportive therapies during orthodontic treatment and maintaining oral health, Michaela has a unique and frequent opportunity to impact her patients’ oral health while they undergo orthodontic treatment.

Often told she has ‘soft hands’, Michaela is very gentle as she helps patients maintain good oral hygiene by thoroughly cleaning their teeth. She scales, polishes, and offers whitening or bleaching solutions for patients, as needed. She enjoys working with patients of all ages and backgrounds, and ensures they have, not only, an enjoyable session, but, an educational session, too.

She is a typical ‘Saffa’ who loves to chat and laugh with her patients and they, in turn, enjoy the easy-going, cheerful atmosphere in her clinic.

Michaela grew up in the Northern Cape of South Africa along the coastline and graduated with a Bachelor of Oral Hygiene, from the University of Pretoria, in 2015. She then went on to work in a private clinic and volunteer in community service projects. During this period, she worked closely with special needs and handicapped children.

When she is not working, she enjoys cooking and baking while listening to good music.

Michaela speaks fluent English and Afrikaans.
