Curious about the Bespoke Dental team? Read on! They’re an interesting bunch.


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.


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.

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
