Dr. Carl Lakkis
Dentist | BDSc (Melbourne)
Founding dentist of Elite Dental, I graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1989 and began practicing in the area shortly thereafter My vision for the clinic was one that would break from the scary impersonal old-style practice, and create a modern welcoming clinic delivering personalised gentle care.
Western suburbs born and bred, my family and I were one of the first residents of the newly established suburb of Taylor’s Lakes well over 30 years ago. I am very proud to have grown with, and served the local community. I am especially pleased when treating the children of parents I looked after when they too were young, even though it makes me feel old. It is immensely satisfying and a great privilege to get to know my patients over so many years, to watch young children grow to become adults and to treat their children.
I enjoy all aspects of dentistry especially restorative dentistry because it best blends the art and science of our profession with tangible results that patients immediately appreciate. I understand people well and am confident I can assist them with their dental needs.
Dentistry also runs in the family. My brother, 2 sisters in law and my nephew are dentists as well, so family dinner conversations are often work related!
