Tanya Skuse-CowellTanya Skuse-Cowell, Dental Hygienist

Tanya has been a valued member of our McIntyre team since 1989.
Initially, as a dental assistant with us, Tanya quickly realised her passion for dentistry and completed her study of Dental Hygiene, graduating in 1993. Ever since, she has loved her career and the opportunity she has to help people improve and maintain their oral health. Tanya finds her position extremely rewarding, especially when she can help patients overcome anxiety. She is prevention focused and strives to create a relaxed yet thorough appointment. Tanya has lectured and tutored both dental hygiene students, as well as dental therapy students in Adelaide. When Tanya isn’t maintaining smiles in the practice, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, especially her grandchildren, on the Yorke Peninsula enjoying her peaceful back porch view. Tanya also enjoys musical theatre, walking on the beach and yoga. She is an active participant in local charities including Beyond Blue, Catherine House, Share the Dignity and Backpacks 4 SA Kids Inc.

What Madeline values most about her role is the opportunity to assist individuals in taking control of their oral health. She finds fulfilment in guiding and educating patients to achieve optimal oral well-being.
