Our staff are committed to professional service with a friendly attitude making us a perfect family dentist in Shellharbour
Committed to providing the local community with high quality patient care, Luke is a true gentlemen, conducting all his work in a caring manner. Luke takes ongoing dental hygiene and prevention very seriously, does all he can to ensure his all patients maintain the best dental health, avoiding potential surgery and cosmetic treatments.
Born in Kiama and raised at his parent’s farm in Berry, Luke moved to Queensland to study dentistry at University where he successfully graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor and Dental Science Honors. With over a decade of experience in dental practice, Luke has become Shellharbour’s most trusted dentist. When he isn’t attending to all our emergency dental needs, he likes to spend time in the Australian bush for a spot of camping, fishing, hiking and 4 wheel driving in the great outdoors.
Kim-Anh Byrne BOH (Senior Hygienist / Therapist)
Kim also studied and trained at the University of Queensland where she achieved a Bachelor in Oral Hygiene but now is in charge of overseeing Shellharbour City Dental patient’s oral health. As an experienced and highly skilled Hygienist and Dental Therapist, Kim thoroughly cleans all patients’ gums and teeth whilst advising on preventing dental disease.
Thanks to her easy going nature, she is a favourite with our teenage and child patients. She will educate all her patients on the correct brushing techniques and flossing of teeth whilst managing the six monthly preventive dental Shellharbour care program consisting of examination, thorough scale and polish and all fluoride treatments.
When she takes a break, Kim enjoys various forms of dancing, with a particular fondness for ballet. Kim is also very musical. She sings 'like an angel', and greatly enjoys any opportunity to play her piano or her flute. Like Luke, Kim very much enjoys the outdoors and especially going fishing, and consistently 'out-fishes' her husband.
