Your Team - National Dental Care

Dr Alice Calvert

Lead Dentist  |  BDS (London), BSc (Hons) MJDF RCS (London)

I obtained my Bachelors of Dental Surgery from Kings College London in 2012.  Since graduating I have held positions within general dental practice, hospital dentistry (Maxillofacial Surgery and Special Care Dentistry) and community dentistry.

I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and have special interests in Oral Surgery, treating children and anxious patients. I believe in preventative dentistry being at the core of the care I provide and ensure that all of my patients are fully equipped with the information they need to maintain good oral health.

In my spare time I enjoy cycling and practice yoga.

Alesha Tan

Oral Health Therapist  |  Bachelor of Oral Health Therapy

I graduated from Central Queensland University with a Bachelor of Oral Health Therapy. Being born and raised in the Territory, I love the tropics so I was keen to return here to practice upon completion of my degree. My aim is to ensure my patients have a comfortable experience and leave with the best clinical outcomes possible.

In my spare time, I enjoy craft based activities such as origami and paper craft.

Dr Bryan Liau

Dentist  |  BOralH, GDipDent (QLD)

I graduated with Bachelor of Oral Health in Dental Science and Graduate Diploma of Dentistry from Griffith University (Gold Coast) in 2011 with several Academic Awards. I have worked in Darwin and Mount Isa since graduation.

I am passionate about doing excellent dentistry in a meticulous, painless and gentle manner to give patients their smile back. I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry with an emphasis on minimally invasive dentistry and preventing toothache and gum disease. I understand a dental visit may be daunting for some and I strive to make dental visit a positive experience by ensuring everyone has been treated in a relaxed, caring and friendly environment.

I have always strived to excel and to further my skills by attending many dental continuing professional development courses to keep up with the latest information, techniques and technologies of modern dentistry for best patient outcome. Outside of dentistry, I play badminton and go to church. I can speak Cantonese, Hakka, Teochew, Malay and Indonesian.
