Dr. Ammu RubyPrincipal Dentist
Dr. Ammu Ruby also graduated from the University of Queensland dental school (it’s the place to be!). Melbourne was home for Ammu so she quickly returned because obviously, AFL > rugby. Ammu’s main passion is seeing kids of all ages. She has a real knack to make them feel comfortable and get them excited about their future dental visits.
Another one of her strengths is removing teeth. She prefers to save teeth where possible, but if it needs to come out, she’s the go-to dentist.
Outside of dentistry, Ammu loves to spend time with her family & 2 kids but she is also a keen dancer and often performs at functions as part of a dance group so it keeps her fit to take out any pesky teeth. Although be warned, Ammu goes for the Bombers, so she may refuse to see any Collingwood supporters!

Dr Bruno Lim is a graduate of the University of Queensland Dental School. He grudgingly gave up the Queensland sunshine and made the move down a while ago and now is a true Melburnian!

He is great with patients and really spends the time going through everything to make sure you’re happy!

Daniella is also fluent in Korean as much as she hates to admit!
Outside of the dental world, Daniella enjoys cooking (but enjoys the eating part more), exercising and planning her upcoming wedding. She is an overprotective dog-mum to her white mini bordoodle, and probably knows the A-Z of all things dog related!
