We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new dentist to our practice , Dr Leighton Phu. Leighton will be available for consultation on Wednesdays and Saturdays and will continue to provide the highest possible standard of care to every patient that walks through the door of our practice.
Dr Leighton Phu completed his Bachelor of Dental Science with Honours at the University of Melbourne and has gained vast experience working in rural and metropolitan dental surgeries as well as holding a position as consultant dentist at St Vincent’s Public hospital.
Leighton is a very gentle and compassionate dentist who finds it particularly rewarding when he is able to help patients overcome anxiety with dental treatment. He remains abreast of modern and conservative approaches to the full scope of dentistry, with particular interest in cosmetic rehabilitation, CAD-CAM technology, oral surgery and endodontics.
In addition to his clinical roles, Leighton has previously been appointed as preclinical supervisor for undergraduate dental students at the University of Melbourne. He also provided volunteer dental care for remote communities in Vietnam and closer to home in Alice Springs and serves on several committees of the Australian Dental Association.
Outside of dentistry, Leighton enjoys spending time with his pet dog Cholo, perfecting his pork crackling technique as well as discovering new music
