Dr Rebecca Dudman
Becky is from the UK and graduated from the University of Leeds in 2009. Dr Becky’s interest in Dentistry started at the tender age of 14 when her own dentist helped her overcome her fears of having her first filling. Her interest in Dentistry and all things tooth related started from there! She decided she would make it her mission to give as many people as possible that great experience that she had.
After graduating, Becky completed further studies in London, including working at a specialist clinic for nervous patients (so if you’re a bit anxious Becky will put you at ease) . She also completed several restorative courses. She worked at a practice in London for several years before meeting her husband, Adam. Adam is an Aussie and Becky didn’t take much persuading to move down-under. That was in 2013 and now Becky, Adam and their French Bulldog, Rupert, are firmly settled in Melbourne.
Becky is a skilled general practitioner providing all aspects of dental care for her patients, as well as aesthetic and functional improvements with Invisalign/ Invisalign Teen and short term orthodontics to pain management and Botox muscle relaxant injections for TMJ (jaw joint) pain. She particularly enjoys the artistic/ cosmetic aspect of dentistry and finds bonding beautiful natural looking restorations, to gently improve a smile, one of the most rewarding parts of her profession.
Outside of Dentistry, Becky absolutely loves this city we call home and tries to see, or do something new every weekend. She particularly loves to be outdoors, especially by the beach and is a bit of a foodie. Save some time for a little chat because she is always up for hearing your favorite recommendations and if you want to ask her about Rupert, her beloved “Frenchie”, she will be more than ready with photos and all!
Dr Carol Donadio
Dr Carol graduated in 2005 with a Doctor in Dental Science Degree and in 2009 completed her Post Graduation degree in Prosthodontics. She completed both her graduate and post- graduate in Sao Paulo, her home city in Brazil and is certified to practice in Australia as a General Dentist by the Australian Dental Council
Together with her husband, Carol moved to Melbourne in 2011. She instantly fell in love with Melbourne and has called it home since.
Carol has a holistic approach when treating her patients, caring for their well-being as the first most important consideration when treatment planning. She loves educating patients and offering them a multidisciplinary treatment to help them achieve not only a confident smile, but also improve their general well-being.
Her main areas of interest are full mouth rehabilitation, occlusion (achieving a harmonious bite) and cosmetic dentistry. This combination enables her to provide to her patients the beauty of ceramic crowns, onlays and veneers, while never forgetting the function and importance of the mechanism of the bite, chewing muscles and jaw joint function and equilibrium.
Most recently, Carol became a member of DSD (Digital Smile Design) and proudly delivers the cosmetic results patients have dreamed of, with carefully and precisely planned, multidisciplinary treatments to help patients achieve aesthetic harmony between their new smile and overall facial appearance .
Carol always loved exercising and since moving to Australia, she practises yoga and meditation as part of adopting a very mindful way of living, caring more for herself and those around her. She loves to spend her free time with her husband and 2 young sons outdoors, especially at the beach.

Each of the dentists who are now part of the team have their own area of focus to complement their provision of general dentistry. Between them, they cover children’s dentistry, orthodontics, Invisalign, cosmetic dentistry, implants, snoring/sleep apnoea management and more.
