Dentist and Owner

I love helping people get the most out of their smile and bite and I'm very lucky to own this fantastic dental practice. My team are kind and gentle and I'm proud of what we have been able to achieve for patients since I came here in 2012. We build great relationships with our patients helping them to do everything from keeping their teeth for life, to re-building their smiles from scratch.

I qualified as a dentist with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree in 2001 from the University of Sheffield. I then followed a structured professional training programme and achieved the diploma of Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2004.

In 2007 I was awarded a Master of Science Degree in Prosthodontics from the University of Manchester. Prosthodontics is enhancing, replacing and reinforcing teeth: with implants, bridges, veneers, crowns and dentures.

During 2011 and 2012 I completed the University of Sheffield's 18 month comprehensive One-to-one Implant Course using the Nobel Biocare implant system.

Between 2008 and 2012 I published several articles in peer reviewed dental journals and contributed e-learning material to the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

I fell for Melbourne as a repeat tourist and was thrilled to be able to move here permanently in 2012, gaining citizenship in 2017.

I am a member of the Australian Dental Association and actively update and refresh my knowledge.

It goes without saying that away from dentistry I enjoy time with my family. I enjoy cooking, but unfortunately, for my family, I won't exactly be appearing on MasterChef anytime soon. As the closest club to my practice, I became a Richmond FC member in 2012 to learn about the footy. The fan journey through their Premiership years made me a Tiger for life. I'll also always follow my boyhood soccer team Manchester City.

Hi my name is Lisa. I have been a dental assistant since 2008 and started to work for Luke in 2015. The best part of being at The Dentists is meeting all the lovely people who come to us as patients. You form a very strong bond with someone when they entrust their care to you and you help them on a journey to regain their smile.

In my spare time my favourite thing to do is spend time with my daughter and our dogs. We love to eat out and explore all the places that have been recommended by our patients. I also help my sister on occasions with wildlife rescues.

What I enjoy most working at The Dentists is to help a patient with their smile, it makes such a difference to them socially. I started dental assisting back in 2009 and have been working with Luke since 2013. My qualifications include: Certificate III In Dental Assisting, Certificate IV in Oral Health Promotion and Certificate IV in Dental Radiography. I enjoy travelling to somewhere new at least once a year. If I am not travelling I enjoy watching movies, reading and going out with my friends.
