dr nicholas liyanage

Dr Nicholas Liyanage (BDSc)

I graduated as a Bachelor of Dental Science from the University of Western Australia. I’m part of the Perth Prosthodontics Study Club, have attended the FPL Young Dentist Conference and have completed a Biomet3i Implant course. I enjoy all facets of dentistry including oral surgery, cosmetic dentistry, paediatric dentistry and endodontics.

The most fulfilling aspect of being a dentist is ensuring pain-free dentistry for my patients, I want them to leave with a smile on their face.

Outside of work I enjoy cooking, watching movies, going to the gym and astronomy.

dr debbie

Dr Debbie (BDSc)

I graduated from Witwatersrand University in South Africa, and I have a true passion for dentistry.  My favorite part is when patients tell me that they have now overcome their fear of coming to the dentist and that they are pain free and can now smile with confidence. I love my job and I am proud of the work that I do on patient’s mouths from simple fillings or extractions (when required) to replacing teeth with dentures, bridges or implants to straightening and bleaching them or restoring worn, broken down or discoloured teeth with crowns or veneers.

I am gentle and I genuinely care about your oral health and I have the skills and experience and the support of a great team to help you maintain or obtain your dream smile.

I am continuously studying to keep my knowledge and skills updated and I have completed numerous courses since graduating in 2001. I have completed implant courses with Nobel Biocare, Southern Implants and Tri Dental implants. I am an Invisalign and Quick Straight Teeth provider and I am currently finishing up a course on complex oral rehabilitations. In my spare time I love playing with my 2 children and watching them grow and develop and I also play and teach guitar.

Dr Michael Wu (DMD)

I’ve always wanted to live in a world eating away limitless fresh foods, gorgeous gourmet meals, and delicious desserts! In pursuit of this dream I took on the initiative to become a dentist as I think we rely our teeth for general well-being. After graduating as a Doctor of Dental Medicine, I’ve continued to pursue various learning opportunities. I am also a regular contributor to various volunteer groups where I serve as a volunteer dentist.

The most fulfilling part of my job is seeing “dentist-fearing patients” converted to “dentist-loving patients” by being an understanding, loving, and caring dentist.

When I am not working as a Dentist helping people into better dental health, you can find me whipping up a delicious sugar-free treat, playing volleyball with friends, or contemplating the true meaning of life.

Dr George Tan

Dr George Tan

I graduated from The University of Western Australia in 1986 and worked in the public sector at the Perth Dental Hospital and helped form the Dental Unit at Bunbury Regional Hospital before establishing Meadows Dental Care in Rockingham.I joined the team at QVC Dental Baldivis in July 2017.

I strive to constantly upgrade my skills and knowledge through continuing professional education and endeavour to keep up with the latest technologies.

I have a special interest in Implant Dentistry as a result of graduating Dental School with the mentoring of Professor P.J. Henry, who was instrumental in the early clinical trials of Branemark Implants in Australia.

My other passions include flying and I hold a Private Pilots Licence, I also undertook AFF skydiving training.

Kirstie Robertson – Oral Health Therapist

Both of my parents were in the dental field and I always had an interest so after two and a half years as a Dental Nurse I graduated Curtin University with a Bachelor of Science in Oral Health Therapy. I continuously enhance my career with further education and study as I believe we can never have too much knowledge.

I enjoy teaching people about their oral health, especially educating children on how to look after their mouths for the long term.

Outside of the practice, I am a busy mum to two little girls. We enjoy family time and taking our dog Bruce for long walks. I also like reading and watching TV.

Sharon Robertson – Director and Patient Coordinator

From Dental Assistant to Front Office Coordinator to Manager to Consultant to Director! I have been involved in more than 500 dental practices, both here and in the UK.

I’ve picked out the very best bits from my 29 year career in managing practices to bring to you here at QVC Dental Baldivis.

QVC Dental has been a dream of mine for many years, I wanted to create a practice which totally focuses on patient care and comfort. I want every patient to have a positive experience and a happy, confident smile. When I’m not at the practice I love nothing more than spending time with my friends and family, including my two beautiful granddaughters.

Metta Hayribetoglu

Metta Hayribetoglu – Director and Patient Coordinator

For nearly 20 years I have fulfilled many roles within the dental industry, I have even worked within the prison dental system! But the last few years I have worked with Sharon and I jumped at the chance to be a part of QVC Dental Baldivis.

QVC truly stands for Quality, Value and Care. When patients leave at the end of their appointments it’s so rewarding for me to see them smile and know that our team at QVC made a difference.

When I’m not working I like to travel and spend time with family and friends. I also enjoy reading dental journals and time spent with our family pets, Billy the lamb, and my dogs Ruby and Thunder.

Rhea Narido

It was in 2012 when I, together with my family emigrated to Perth.  Although I have been in the dental industry for 16 years, I feel there is always something to learn as dentistry continues to evolve.

There is nothing more important to me than seeing a patient come out of our treatment room happy and satisfied.

I spend most of my free time with my children watching movies, visiting interesting places and getting busy with my balloon business.  I also enjoy reading and snorkelling when we go on holiday.

When I’m not working or studying, I love shopping, music and dogs.

I emigrated from the UK with my husband and young daughter in 2003. I have worked for Sharon in the dental industry since 2012 and I share Sharon and Metta’s vision for QVC Dental Baldivis.

I believe quality, value and care are key.

With my extensive experience in customer service, I hope to build the foundations for happy relationship with our patients. In my free time I like going to the beach and travelling with my family. I also enjoy walking my crazy dog Boomer, yoga, interior design and reading. I’m trying to find my love of gardening, but it’s elusive!

Daisy Benedictos

I’ve recently moved from QLD with my partner and two children.  I’ve just started studying a Certificate III in Dental Assisting with Foundation Education, as I’ve always had an interest in dentistry.

The staff at QVC Dental support me and give me the drive, passion and commitment to push myself further to succeed my goals.

When I’m not at the practice, I love spending my time with my family whether it’s camping and exploring more of WA, kid’s activities, watching movies and walking our dog.
