Meet the team
Dr. Manuel Velarde
I have been living and practising dentistry in Singleton at Singleton Dental Care since 1998. Our move to the country was driven by our desire to bring up our children in a country environment.
Moving to Singleton was one of the best decisions of my life enabling me to own my own practice, work with wonderful staff and have the most incredible patients, I feel blessed by the commitment of my staff and the loyalty my patients have to Singleton Dental Care.
I have been with Singleton Dental Care since 1998. Working behind the scenes here for many years has enabled me to spend time with my children whilst they were growing up. I love working in the dental industry: what makes it so special is the fantastic patient base that we have and the best work colleagues who make each day a pleasure to come to work.
Singleton has a wonderful community and I am very happy to be part of it.
My name is Aimee and I’ve been working at Singleton Dental Care for almost 8 years. In May 2017, I married my husband Zac in Darwin and have a beautiful step son, Jack. Ever since I was little I have always had horses I have two at the moment & enjoyed competing.
I love being active and in my spare time water ski, camp, horse ride and enjoy fun & adventurous actives. Singleton Dental Care has always been a very family friendly environment – both staff & patients make each day a joy to come to work to do what I love.
With over fifteen years of experience in the dental field, my passion for advocating and practising preventive dentistry is what makes my job as a Dental Hygienist truly satisfying. Being the Student Hygienist of the year 2011 was a great motivation for me to continue providing the very best care and treatment to all my patients.
I have continued to develop professionally with the aim of being able to provide all my patients with the latest information and the best options available to them. I love my work and more than anything it is ability to holistically understand the individual treatment needs by establishing a rapport that makes it special.
