Dr Lan graduated from the University of Queensland in 2000. He is very experienced in all aspects of general dentistry but is especially focused on maintaining a healthy bite for his patients.
Dr Lan regularly attends educational seminars to keep up to date on the latest techniques. He is available late nights and Saturdays which is convenient for patients who cannot attend appointments during the normal working week.
Dr. Lan has a genuine empathy and caring nature, which, along with his soft touch and gentle manner makes your dental visit a much more pleasant experience than expected by most patients. Appointments with Dr Lan are carried out in a calm and relaxed environment and the treatments are always discussed with you in great depth. His eye for detail and desire for providing everyone with a great smile coupled with his knowledge on the latest dentistry has to offer, ensures that you receive the best possible treatment.
Oral Health Therapists
At Blue Star Dental Group we have four Oral Health Therapists whose aim is to help our patients achieve and maintain healthy gums.
Our usual recommendation is that our patients visit with an Oral Health Therapist twice a year (every 6 months) for a 40 – 60 minute appointment.
During this appointment the Therapists will perform a thorough scale and clean to remove any plaque and tartar to help keep your gums healthy.
Our Oral Health Therapists are committed to providing quality customer service and treatment to our South Brisbane dental patients.
