Dr Alice Harriott
Dr Alice Harriot is a partner at Whitsunday Family dental, and she has been at the practice for more than a decade. She earned her BDSc with honours from the University of Queensland, and she also received a FICOI (Fellowship International College of Oral Implantologists), and a BSc (Med Rad Tech) Radiography.
The best part of being a dentist for Dr Alice is seeing her patients proud of what they are achieving for themselves and their health - better brushing or even flossing! Or making the decision to fix their teeth after years if putting it off. She realises that helping someone change their smile can actually change their life, which is a great honour.
When Dr Alice is not in the dental clinic, her life is filled with a household of girls – there’s not a lot of quiet! She's a keen cook - preserving and making cumquat jam! She also loves being by the beach, in her garden or with her family.See Complete Bio
