Dr Rhiannon Solter

Dr Rhiannon SolterDr Rhiannon Solter is a true Kingscliff local, with three generations of family growing up in Kingscliff- her grandfather (Tom Grimes) was the gas man and plumber for the town, and her mother (Heather) has been a part of Kingscliff Dental Care for ten years as a dental nurse.

Rhiannon attended Kingscliff Primary School and Lindisfarne High School, before attending Griffith University to study dentistry where she graduated with an award for Academic Excellence.

After graduating, Rhiannon gained invaluable experience working rurally in Mackay and Roma. The type of dentistry and scope of services was quite different to the coast and provided her with a well-rounded approach to her patients. She then practiced in Port Macquarie and Ballina before moving back to her hometown of Kingscliff to raise a family.

Rhiannon is a meticulous and thorough dentist, with a casual and relaxed demeanour. There is always good music playing and laughter, as she believes “dentistry should not be painful or uncomfortable, but an enjoyable experience”. Rhiannon is passionate about all facets of general dentistry and will do her best to give you a positive experience, and great teeth!

In her spare time, you can find Rhiannon playing vinyl records, bike riding and relaxing in the shade at the creek with her daughter Willow.

Growing up, her family holidays were spent camping and fishing on South Stradbroke Island, chasing rabbits at Stanthorpe or branding cattle and catching blue claw out Warwick way. Holly is ecstatic to finally call Kingscliff home as she feels it has a perfect blend of country and beach. Her weekends are spent at the beach with family, and she also enjoys cooking and motorcycle riding.
