Michael Eather

Dentist — B.D.S. (Syd)

Michael Eather - Dentist

Michael Eather took over the Ormonde Dental Centre in Hurstville at the end of 1980. Michael has spent most of his life in the Hurstville area. He went to a local primary and high school and still lives locally.

One of the greatest satisfactions for Michael is that he has been able to provide dental treatment and care for people in the community where he has spent most of his life. He also has had the satisfaction of treating a lot of people he met at school as well as their children.

Dentistry is a fascinating field in which to be to be involved, and because of the rapid changes in technology, dentistry is evolving all the time. This constant dental evolution allows patients to have better and gentler treatment. Michael finds this exciting, challenging and extremely fulfilling.

Elizabeth Cullinan

Dentist — B.D.S. (Syd)

Elizabeth Cullinan - Dentist

Elizabeth has dentistry in her blood, with two sisters and a brother-in-law also in the profession. She came to the Ormonde Dental Centre in Hurstville in 1995 after running a successful private practice with her sister in Canberra.

Elizabeth’s easy going nature and caring approach combined with her refined clinical skills ensure her patients enjoy the highest quality dental care in a pain free environment.

She enjoys the challenge of providing gentle, empathetic care to anxious patients and is rewarded by a loyal and appreciative patient following.

Ruth Baden

Hygienist — R.D.H. (Lon)

Ruth Baden - Hygienist

Ruth is responsible for establishing the hygiene and preventive oral health programme at the Ormonde Dental Centre in Hurstville.

Ruth came to us in 2002 after working for a highly respected Macquarie Street dental practice for many years.

Originally from England, Ruth gained her qualifications at the Eastman Dental hospital in London in 1992. She then worked for a Harley Street specialist restorative surgeon and then became the staff hygienist for the Bank of England. Ruth migrated to Australia in 1994.

After starting with the Ormonde Dental Centre in Hurstville in 2002, Ruth also worked part time for a specialist periodontist in Miranda. She decided to stop working there after 18 months and concentrate all her energies on the Ormonde Dental Centre.

Ruth combines a caring nature, excellent clinical techniques and great communication skills to ensure our patients receive the best hygiene and preventative treatment.

Soula Zinzopoulos

Receptionist & Office Manager

Soula Zinzopoulos - Receptionist and Office Manager

Soula is our receptionist and office manager.

She has been with the Ormonde Dental Centre in Hurstville for 28 years. She started as a dental nurse in the surgery and eventually moved to the reception area.

She ensures everything runs smoothly at the Ormonde Dental Centre and because of her great interest in people she is able to remember just about every patient.

Because of her great memory she can even recognise a patient’s voice on the phone without being told their name. This makes things so much easier when someone needs to contact our surgery and make an appointment.
