Meet our team
Dr Daniel Ang
Dr Daniel Ang is an Associate Dentist with a Bachelor of Health Sciences in Dentistry and a Masters of Dentistry from La Trobe University. He works across all areas at our practice and wants to make sure that his patients maintain excellent oral health so they are able to continue to eat well. The appreciation and thanks he receives from his patients after helping them with their oral health are his favourite things about being a dentist. He firmly believes that prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure so make sure to brush and floss every day! When he isn’t helping out his patients, Daniel loves to travel, eat out at restaurants and go to the beach.
