We are so thrilled to have Dr Mitali as part of the Laser + Holistic Dental team. Dr Mitali is an early adopter of the latest technologies and can often be heard praising the use of lasers in dentistry and the benefits of using Concentrated Growth Factors (CGF) and BoneCeramic in surgical procedures. Additionally, Dr Mitali was the first dentist at our clinic to master SmileArchitect, a state of the art Invisalign technology, that integrates Cone Beam Volumetric Tomography (CBVT) and digital scan images so dental needs can be appropriately managed now, and well into the future. This is a particularly useful treatment planning tool for patients considering orthodontics followed by metal free implants or other restorative treatments.

A compassionate, dedicated and detail-oriented dentist, Dr Kevin Lee believes in the transformative power of dentistry. At the heart of his practice is a commitment to building genuine connections with his patients. Dr Kevin is known for his approachable demeanor and for the emphasis he places on thorough explanations so his patients feel well-informed and cared for.
Dr Kevin’s treatment style is to inform, empower and improve lives.

This belief is practiced in Dr Kevin’s day-to-day actions and is further demonstrated by his generous nature, which saw him volunteering and providing dental care to remote communities in the Australian Outback and Cambodia.

dr Nida Parveen

Dr. Nida Parveen

  • Family Dentistry
  • Paediatric Dentistry
  • Invisalign Accredited

A kind, hardworking mother of three, Dr Nida is known for her comforting nature and expert dental care. Her innate kindness and compassion makes her a popular dentist, especially to families with young children. An advocate for biocompatible materials and for eliminating oral toxins and infections, Dr Nida is proud to incorporate these principles into her dental treatments.
Dr Nida’s treatment style is gracious dental care for the entire family.

Passionate about family health and wellbeing, Dr Nida’s greatest joy in dentistry is providing meaningful dental treatments. Naturally drawn to holistic dentistry, Dr Nida places significant emphasis on holistic assessments and treatment during crucial life stages. Whether it is addressing dental infections or sleep breathing disorders for parents planning to conceive, appropriately staging routine checkups during pregnancy, or beginning early intervention orthodontics with Invisalign during childhood, Dr Nida excels in providing comprehensive long-term planning and treatment.

Aligned with the Laser + Holistic Dental philosophy, which centers on the prevention and elimination of infections using advanced technology, biocompatible materials, and minimally invasive techniques, Dr Nida is excited to deliver quality treatments to her patients. She is particularly enthusiastic about surgical extractions and the use of lasers in dentistry. In particular, lasers can be used to eliminate 99.99% of bacteria in infected root canals and can also be applied in periodontal treatments, stimulating healing of gum pockets whilst simultaneously treating infection. Did you know that gum disease and not tooth decay, is the primary cause of tooth loss?

We are delighted to have Dr. Nida as part of the Laser + Holistic Dental team. With over 10 years experience practicing dentistry, she not only possesses clinical expertise and skill but also demonstrates a genuine concern for her patients and their well-being.
