Zola Wakely

Practice Manager

After moving to Charters Towers in 2009, Zola quickly began to consider this community her hometown because it is so welcoming and supportive to families who move to the area.

Zola has over 30 years in the dental industry where she started out as a dental nurse before moving on to senior dental nurse. She then became a treatment coordinator and has expanded her skills to include practice manager for the past nine years. She joined the original practice in 2009 and has worked with Dr Girish and his team since 2015.
