Dr. Katie Lu
Dentist | BDSc
I obtained my Bachelor of Dental Science from the University of Adelaide, and early in my dental career I developed an interest in cosmetic dentistry. I believe in the difference a beautiful smile can make in improving multiple facets of my patients’ lives. I am passionate about providing a positive experience for all aged patients. I work long hours to make this happen, but also keep myself busy outside of work. I love to latin dance, shop, travel, or explore a new culinary delight!

Dr Bhavin Patel
Dentist | BDS (Cardiff University UK)
I joined the Alexandra Hills team in January 2018. I graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (Hons) from Cardiff University (UK) in 2013. Since graduating I have been awarded the postgraduate Diploma for Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh).
Before moving across to Australia I worked in two different dental practices within a dental practice group in Oxford (UK) for 3 years. I am dedicated to providing high quality and up to date dentistry. I ensure I keep up to date with the latest innovations in dentistry to allow me to offer these to my patients such as providing Invisalign. I have a kind, caring nature and enjoy helping nervous patients overcome their fears and helping patients achieve optimal oral health.
When I am not at work, I enjoy keeping fit and spending time with my wife and friends exploring what Australia has to offer!

Oral Health Therapist | BOH (Qld)
I graduated from the University of Queensland in 2011 with a Bachelor in Oral Health and have been passionate about therapy ever since. Shortly after graduation I began work at DL Dental in a casual role, which soon progressed to a full time position as an Oral Health Therapist.
I thrive on the diversity of my role and the combination of hygiene treatment and dental therapy. My hygiene treatment ranges from routine cleans to more extensive periodontal management cases. I love seeing patients respond to my treatments and education as they come to realise how important healthy gums are to their dental and general health.
Whilst I do love this aspect, my primary passion is paediatric therapy and I work to make dentistry enjoyable for my patients through toys, stories and my signature origami gifts. I work closely with various paediatric and periodontal specialists to ensure a high level of care is maintained for all patients.
When not working I can be found road cycling, music producing, motorbike riding or drinking coffee.
Oral Health Therapist | BOH (Qld)
I graduated from The University of Queensland with a Bachelor in Oral Health; giving me a dual qualification as a Dental Hygienist and Dental Therapist. I thoroughly enjoy both aspects of my role- from providing preventive treatment for adults as well as full dental treatment for children.
The regular visits to the dentist as a child intrigued me to a career in dentistry. Having been on the receiving end and facing dental anxiety first hand, I am someone who understands my patients. Through my gentle and genuine care, I strive to provide you and your family with a comfortable and positive experience.
I am a member of The Dental Hygienists’ Association of Australia (DHAA) and the Australian Dental and Oral Health Therapists’ Association (ADOHTA). The continuing education from seminars and training courses keeps me up to date with the latest research and products.
Outside of work, I am a volunteer with Tsu Chi Foundation which provides oral health care to refugees and those in need.
On my days off I enjoy exploring cafes, finding the best ‘brunch’ eats and catching up with friends.
