Growing up, Tyleesha’s family worked in the dental industry, so she had a unique experience learning about oral health from a young age. She’s currently working on completing her Certificate III in Dental Assisting and can’t wait to finish it.

For her, seeing patients react positively and with improved confidence after visiting our practice is one of the best parts about her role.

Makaela Cook — Senior Dental Assistant/ Receptionist

Makaela became a dental assistant as she’s always had an interest in teeth and helping people. So joining the First Dental Studio team was a perfect fit for her. To prepare for her role, Makaela earned a Certificate 3 in Dental Assisting. She plans to obtain a Certificate 4 in 2022. For Makaela, it’s highly fulfilling to be able to help people achieve and maintain a bright and healthy smile.

When she’s not working, Makaela enjoys getting together with her friends on the weekends or hanging out with her boyfriend and doing spontaneous activities. She also recently started to ride motorbikes at her partner’s farm. On Sunday mornings, Makaela likes to go to Snapper Rocks to surf. She stays fit by working out every weekday and Saturday at CrossFit. “That’s my time to let all my energy out!”
