Meet Dr Nicola Hulme-Peake, BDS

Dr Nicola photoToowoomba family dentist, Dr Nicola, has over 25 years of experience within the dental industry. She graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1991 from the Dundee Dental School at Dundee University in Scotland. Her unrivalled passion for dentistry saw Dr Nicola graduate top of the class.

With a fascination of dentistry from a very young age and a strong desire to provide as much care to others as possible, it came as no surprise when Dr Nicola embarked on a career within this industry. Dentistry even allowed Dr Nicola to pursue her additional love of travel, bringing her all the way from Scotland to Australia, a country she has been proud to call home since 1995.

Dr Nicola has a heart of gold and this is evident through her extensive charity work. She once spent two weeks in Vietnam volunteering with a local school to assist them with oral health and hygiene. It is Dr Nicola’s mission to provide disadvantaged communities with greater access to dental healthcare.


Her Favourite Thing About Being a Dentist

Dr Nicola’s most rewarding aspect of being a family dentist is the noticeable difference she makes to her patient’s lives. She loves helping her patients to achieve a smile they’re confident with, as well as the positive knock-on effect this has on their lives, leading to an improvement in their overall health and wellbeing.

For Dr Nicola, dentistry is more than just an occupation. “I love what I do and I’m passionate about providing high-quality dentistry in a caring environment.”

A Holistic Approach to Dental Care

Tired of the ‘walk-in-walk-out’ nature of some dental practices, Dr Nicola chooses to have a holistic approach to dental care whilst placing utmost importance on prevention and whole-mouth health. At Pure Dental Toowoomba she does this by taking a genuine interest in her patients, communicating with them effectively to develop a personalised treatment plan that suits their needs.

Concentrating on the long-term health of a patient not only leads to better health and wellbeing, but also lowers the risk of emergency treatment down the line.

Outside of Work

Now that Nicola’s children have left home, Nicola loves to spend time with her friends and her two dogs, Millie and Fred.

As most of her patient’s and all of her staff know, exercise is important for Nicola as it has a definite impact on her physical and mental health combating the stress of her career and business ownership. This allows her to keep healthy with an optimistic approach to life which she brings to work positively impacting her staff and patients!

This year, one of Nicola’s goals is to learn to play the piano, something she has longed to do since she was 10 years old!
