She enjoys cosmetic dentistry as it can quickly upgrade a patient’s smile and boost their self-confidence. Dr Laura is also passionate about treating TMD/Grinding/bruxism as she has experienced symptoms herself and benefited from various interventions.
Dr Laura loves being able to make people smile, either with Dad jokes or by restoring teeth to their former glory. She enjoys working with anxious patients showing them that a trip to the dentist can be pleasant.
Outside of work, Dr Laura has a rescued greyhound that she has to coax out for walks. She also enjoys being in or on the water including sailing, kayaking, SUP and SUP yoga!

Dr Ruohan enjoys all aspects of general dentistry but has particular interests in oral surgery, cosmetic restorative dentistry, and prosthodontics. He is also passionate about assisting patients with dental anxiety through a gentle approach and the latest techniques to paint a new and non-intimidating picture of a dental visit.
When he is not with patients, Dr Ruohan keeps up to date with the latest in dentistry through regular attendance at professional development courses and gives back to the community by volunteering through the Tzu Chi International Medical Association Perth Branch at their monthly weekend community dental clinics.
