    Dr Woodhouse graduated in dentistry from the University of Qld in 1978 and worked for Qld Health and in private practice - both in rural Queensland and in Brisbane - before deciding to specialise in oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Dr Woodhouse completed her final year in a world class training facility in the UK and was admitted to Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. She was awarded a travelling Fellowship to Europe in recognition of the work she undertook in England. On her return to Australia, Dr Woodhouse commenced private practice in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. At the same time she completed a medical degree through the University of Queensland and was awarded a specialist Fellowship in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. She was appointed a consultant at the Royal Brisbane and Princess Alexandra Hospitals from 1994 to 2009 where she pioneered several techniques not previously performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons in Queensland. She has also served as Lieutenant Colonel Consultant to the Australian Army, and is currently on the national board of examiners for doctors applying for specialist registration in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Dr Woodhouse practices all aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery but has a special interest in the correction of facial deformity.
