Erika Alegre
Oral Health Therapist

Erika was born in the Philippines where she spent most of her childhood before the family migrated to Australia. During her gap year, Erika worked at a dental practice in Melbourne where she found inspiration to pursue a career in Oral Health. Erika found interest in Orthodontics during her time at university where she had Dr. Rob Mayne as a lecturer.  As a student, Erika spent some of her university holidays in Nepal and the Northern Territory to reach out to areas with great oral health needs. Upon finishing Oral Health, Erika was among the few selected to participate in the inaugural year of the Oral Health Therapist Graduate Year Program where she spent time providing oral health services in rural and remote areas of Victoria.

After relocating around Victoria for work and studies for the last few years, Erika is happy to say that she is calling Shepparton home again, for good this time. Outside of work, Erika is involved in youth ministry both locally and in Melbourne. Erika likes to follow the NBA and wants to travel the world with her husband Alan one day.
