Meet Dr Susana

Meet Dr Susana Vuvan, Dentist

Dr Susana joins the Vital Dental Care team as our new Dentist. Dr Susana Dr Phil studied dentistry and graduated together in 2007, and have been friends ever since.

Since graduating, Dr Susana has honed her dental skills from working in Government practice for 5 years in Toowoomba before joining Teachers Union Health in 2012. She loves keeping up to date with the latest advances in dentistry through membership of various study clubs, such as Cadmus, and attends workshops and lectures throughout the year to continue her professional development.

Susana loves helping people improve their health and quality of life through dentistry. She has spent numerous years in the Australian public service, working to ensure that dental care is affordable to everyone, and she also is a volunteer dentist in Cambodia and Papua New Guinea where she goes yearly on charity missions. Not only is Susana incredibly generous with her time (and is super nice, to boot!), she conducts procedures in a gentle manner and loves helping people overcome their dental fears by trying to make their dental experience as comfortable and painless as possible.

Outside of work, Dr Susana sends time with family and friends, cares for her pet dog Sasha and is crazy good at martial arts.

Meet Amanda Giang, Oral Health Therapist

Amanda G.

Meet Amanda

After 6 years as a dental assistant, Amanda studied to become an Oral Health Therapist after she developed an interest in the prevention, treatment, and management of oral health and diseases. She knew she could make more of a difference in her patients’ lives and says, “having the ability to improve a patient’s oral health and their overall general health and quality of life is what I love most about the dental health profession.” Her favourite oral health tip is that flossing is as important as brushing, but she also gets that prioritising flossing isn’t always easy, and suggests working up to build the habit.

Amanda completed her Bachelor of Oral Therapy with extended scope, which means that she can carry out x-rays, gentle and thorough cleans for patients of all ages, fillings, fluoride applications, and dentistry on children aged 0-17 (which includes exams, cleans, fillings and removal of baby teeth). Her role as an Oral Health Therapist works in conjunction with Dr Phil and Dr Susana to give you the best advice and support them in improving your oral health outcomes. Amanda will be involved in your treatment planning, diagnosis and educating you on how to best care for your teeth at home.

Amanda also prides herself on her ability to connect individually with patients, and wants you to feel comfortable around her. A large part of her job is caring for children, and she gets that children require a special type of care – she has two young nieces that she loves and regularly takes care of them and takes them to swimming lessons. Amanda is a gun at playing board games (don’t sit opposite her during a game of chess!) and loves to scale walls at an indoor rock climbing centre. In her spare time, she watches reruns of Friends, and you’d never know it if you saw her, but she has a red belt with three stripes in Tae Kwon Do!
