Curious about the Bespoke Dental team? Read on! They’re an interesting bunch.
DR MIRANDA SAGEMAN
Dentist & Practice Owner / Principal
With a tendency to shy away from the limelight and play down her strengths, Miranda is a steady and experienced hand in our practice. Working as our primary dentist, her quiet consideration of dental treatment is a clever veil for intelligent delivery of patient care. Miranda completed her studies at the University of Sydney in 1990.
DR JESSE GREEN
Dentist & Practice Owner / Principal
Qualifying as a dentist in 1994, Dr Jesse is Bespoke Dental’s co-founder. It is no understatement to say Jesse is a details man. Talk about sweating the small stuff, Jesse has microscopic vision for anything he thinks will make Bespoke Dental better.
Known for his single-minded preoccupation with the finessing of details, he’s deftly balances this with communication skills known to exceed any expectation you may ever have about a dentist. He listens to what you say; he hears what you don’t say.
His greatest joy in dental practice? Formulating a treatment plan that will deliver to his patient exactly what they need. He works from the premise that sound advice helps people make wise decisions.
A genuine cricket tragic (a fact made all the more heartbreaking due to his acute lack of talent),Dr Jesse is also known for his ability to turn every process into a model and his keen desire to see others become the best version of themselves.
Dr Jamil Aqel
Dr. Jamil Aqel is a Canberra native. He received his Bachelor of Medical Science degree from the University of Canberra and graduated with his Bachelor of Dental Science from Charles Sturt University. Jamil worked as a dental assistant prior to becoming a dentist and helped deliver excellent dental care. Through his years working in the dental field, he has continued to develop his knowledge and skills and grow as a clinician.
Jamil is passionate about preventive and holistic dentistry and believes the mouth is the window to the rest of the body. He aims to help his patients achieve excellent oral and general health by looking at the big picture and thinking outside the box. He enjoys all facets of dentistry and has a keen interest in dental sleep medicine and treatment of jaw joint dysfunction (TMD). Jamil is very eager to undertake further professional development courses to continue to deliver optimal dental care to all his patients.
“In his spare time, Jamil enjoys outdoor activities including playing tennis and hiking. He is also a coffee and food connoisseur and hopes to embark on his musical journey by learning to play the piano.
Oral Health Therapist
Pete’s enthusiastic nature and patient-centred approach to dentistry allows him to comfortably build rapport with patients. His gentle touch and listening ear further help him to develop altruistic connections with patients of all ages and from all walks of life. As an Oral Health Therapist, Pete provides hygiene and restorative treatments for adults and all aspects of general dental care to his younger patients.
Pete graduated from the University of Sydney in 2018 with a Bachelor of Oral Health (Distinction). Prior to joining the Bespoke Dental family, he worked in multiple locations throughout remote and rural NSW including Tamworth and Shellharbour. During this time whilst working in general dentistry, he further developed skills working with various specialists in orthodontics and paediatric dentistry. Pete particularly enjoys working with children and helping instil them with good oral hygiene habits from a young age. He firmly believes that good oral health is intrinsically linked to optimum overall health.
During his downtime, Pete enjoys keeping active, whether it is playing tennis, going to the gym, or going for walks. He also loves to relax with friends and enjoys
exploring new cafes. Pete looks forward to meeting our new patients and helping them along their journey to optimal oral health.
“One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is treating patients, regardless of age, who enter our doors feeling dentally anxious but eventually love coming back for their visits. Understanding dental anxiety is something I can personally relate to, particularly since I was afraid of the dentist as a child. Now that I think about it, it’s a little bit funny that I ended up in this profession!” ~Pete
