Dr Naseem graduated from Charles Sturt University with a Bachelor of Dental Science and is most passionate about preventative and restorative dentistry. Her caring and compassionate nature helps to put even the most nervous patients at ease.

“The most rewarding aspect of my job is seeing an overall improvement in my patient’s oral health which is an integral aspect of their general health.”

Outside of the practice, Dr Naseem loves spending quality time with family and friends and keeping active in gym and fitness. She also enjoys travelling and meeting people from various backgrounds and walks of life. Raised right here in Albury, since she was 1! Come and visit Dr Naseem today for your next dental visit!

Keri Calvert, Dental Hygienist

Keri always has had an interest in health and wellbeing. Though she started working towards a degree in nursing, she decided to make a change to dentistry. She earned a Dental Hygiene Diploma from Otago University (NZ).

“For me, the most fulfilling part of my job is seeing someone feel confident and happy to smile again. I like to share their journey to better oral health and overall health.”

Outside of the practice, Keri loves being the mum to her two boys. She stays busy with their activities and is involved with basketball and footy clubs through one of her sons. Born and raised in New Zealand, Keri has been living in Australia since 2011 and loves it!

Samantha Booyens, Dental Assistant

Sam, who earned a Dental Assistant Diploma, finds it rewarding to meet and care for patients. She works in the reception area when needed and likes that every day is different.

When she’s not at the practice, Sam loves spending time with her church family, and enjoys painting and decorating cakes in her spare time. Born in South Africa, Sam immigrated to Australia in 2006 with her husband and daughter. “I am a proud Australian citizen!”

Teakela Boulton, Dental Assistant

Teakela has over 25 years of experience in the dental field and has worked at K&R Dental since 2000, which has allowed her to get to know her patients well.
What she enjoys most about her job is the variety. “Every day is different with a variety of patients and procedures.”

In her spare time, Teakela enjoys spending time with her family, living in the country and watching football (both local and AFL).

Alison, Dental Receptionist

As our patients’ first point of contact, Alison establishes a place of calm and peace, where fear is reduced, pain is removed, trust is formed, and confidence in smiling is restored. What Alison enjoys most about working in the dental field is the ability to make a difference in the lives of patients. In addition to her role as a receptionist, Alison also occasionally assists with dental duties. She is passionate about helping patients establish good oral hygiene habits from early childhood.

Alison has training and experience as a dental therapist in School Dental Service. Starting in 1982, she worked in areas ranging from Broken Hill and Far West NSW to Outback NSW and SA remote areas as part of the Royal Flying Doctor Service. “We are truly privileged to have access to premium dental services which are available throughout Australia, including here at K&R Dental.”

When she’s not at the practice, Alison enjoys spending time with her family and community, as well as attending church. She also enjoys music, animals and expanding her travel adventures.

Jan Carroll, Dental Receptionist/Assistant

In her role at the practice, Jan loves to help patients feel at ease before their treatment. She is caring and welcoming and is a good listener. For Jan, it’s fulfilling to work as part of a team in such a rewarding and interesting field and to help patients. “It’s not the mouth, but the person behind it that makes my work so fulfilling.”

Jan has many years of experience in dentistry and possesses a DAA Certificate and a First Aid and Sterilising Certificate.

In her spare time, Jan, who is an animal lover, enjoys walking and working at her daughter’s farm. She also loves card making and colouring. This mum and wife also enjoys catching up with friends and extended family around Australia.
