Dr Andrew Maimur

Principal Dentist

My journey into the world of dentistry began at Melbourne University where I studied intently with a vision of providing the western suburbs with outstanding dental care. I have been here in the west ever since and am proud to call it home. I am pleased to say that I have never had any thoughts of pursuing another profession, as dentistry has afforded me many highlights and opportunities, both professionally and personally.

One of those opportunities is to volunteer my time every year with “Association Tanna”. Through this charity, I provide my expertise to the remote villages of Vanuatu in caring for their residents’ oral health.

Closer to home, I relish the comings and goings of the clinic, ensuring I provide exceptional care to my patients old and new. I particularly enjoy mentoring the terrific new vanguard of clinicians at the practice to guarantee our patients are always in the best possible hands.

When I do step away from work, I enjoy good food, good wine and good company.

I started my dental journey after graduating from the Griffith University Dental School in sunny Gold Coast, Queensland, where I grew up. After working there for a number of years, I moved to Melbourne and joined the AM Dental Team in 2015. Since then, they have been a part of my extended family, staff and patients alike.

I am a “What you see is what you get!” kind of person. Who I am as a dentist, is the same as I am at home with my family and friends. In the clinic I like to make sure my patients are as comfortable as they can be. This means both physically and emotionally. They know that they’re going to be in the best hands possible. I always make sure that my patients walk out of the clinic with a smile on their face.

At home I love baking and doing the mum thing. At work I love general and cosmetic dentistry, and I’m always looking to further my skills to provide more for our patients. I love being a dentist and the way I can change a person’s life even in just a small way.

Most of all I love my job here at AM Dental and look forward to seeing you to extend our family further!

Betty Girma

Oral Hygienist

I have been working in the dental profession since 2006, starting my career as a dental assistant which led to my passion to pursue dental hygiene. I then completed my Bachelor in Oral Health at the University of Newcastle.

I particularly enjoy helping patients with dental anxiety ensuring I provide a relaxed and comfortable experience for all ages. I believe oral health education is key to quality of life. I also have extensive experience in orthodontics. I love talking all things to do with your pearly whites and teaching you how to floss like a boss!
In my free time I love staying active, spending quality time with my family and watching movies.

I am currently based at the Melton practice and am ready and waiting to assist you with your routine cleans, oral health education, teeth whitening and, of course, flossing tips!

Courtney Arias

Oral Health Therapist

I graduated from Charles Sturt University with a Bachelor of Oral Heath.

My inspiration to pursue a dental degree came from my prior experience working as a dental assistant for Dr. Andrew Maimur.

I always take time to explain and educate my patients about their dental requirements and treatments. Most importantly, making every patient feel comfortable, safe and heard whilst delivering exceptional dental care. I have a keen interest in preventive and minimally invasive dentistry. I endeavour to captivate even the most impressionable patients, inspiring them to take good care of their teeth and look forward to their dental visits.

Beyond my professional achievements, I enjoy traveling the world with my husband and two young sons. So far, I have travelled to over 80 destinations.

For all your oral health needs, my aim is to provide extraordinary attention and commitment with a big smile.
