Local to Nedlands, Hoda is a busy mum of two young children. When she’s not fixing teeth or running around after her kids, she can be happily found baking for her loved ones or going for a daily run.
Dr Ilana Kohan
Dr Ilana Kohan completed her Bachelor of Dental Science at the University of Western Australia. Her aim as a dentist is to provide a high standard of treatment in a gentle and caring environment.
Ilana enjoys all aspects of general dentistry for both adults and children and has done further training in cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetics. She regularly attends courses and conferences to ensure she is providing the most up to date treatment methods for her patients.
Ilana believes that for any healthcare practice to be sustainable, it must also be enjoyable and rewarding and works hard to ensure her patient’s experiences are pain-free.
When not at work, Ilana enjoys exploring Perth’s food scene with family and friends. She also enjoys spending her free time swimming and curling up with a good book.
Loh joined the team at Nedlands Dental at the beginning of 2016 and has already made a name for herself amongst the patients. She works directly with patients and alongside the dentist. Like everyone on the Nedlands Dental team, Loh has a strong focus on preventative management.
Throughout her career Loh has been eagerly sought out by patients who appreciate the time she takes to get to know them and understand what makes them tick.
The job of a dental hygienist is about so much more than just cleaning people’s teeth. Your mouth reflects a lot about your overall health and other things that are going on in your life. Taking the time to get to know my patients means I can give them service and advice that is tailored very closely with their particular needs.
When she is not caring for patients at work Loh likes to spend her time creatively. She has become known amongst her family and friends for the beautiful 3D sculpted cakes she creates for holidays and celebrations and has found unique sculpting tools to help her achieve the exact look she is aiming for.
Front Office Coordinator / Receptionist
Liz has been the welcoming face of reception at Nedlands Dental for more than 5 years. Growing up in Sale Victoria, Liz moved to Perth in 2008 after attending a conference in the city and falling in love with it.
A natural people person, Liz goes out of her way to make patients feel welcome and comfortable, listening to their concerns, setting their appointments and helping them to understand what to expect during their treatment.
Taking the time to make a real connection with our patients is very important to their overall experience. In understanding who they are we are better able to serve them and give them the best care we can provide. I have worked in dentistry for more than 12 years and it is the most wonderful feeling to be part of the team that helps a patient move from an insecure smile, to a wide, confident grin.
Outside of work Liz enjoys reading and spending time with her husband and two step-children.
Amy has been working in dentistry for close to a decade, joining the Nedlands Dental team at the end of 2015. Throughout her career she has been known by her patients as someone who takes the time to get to know them and always has their best interests and comfort at heart.
Her calming nature and reassuring approach made her ideally suited to working alongside the caring team at Nedlands Dental where the focus is very much on prevention and ongoing care.
I love seeing a patient come in to the practice and walk out with a smile on their face. In dentistry you can make a difference to someone’s life in just one day. For me this is one of the things I love most about working as a dental assistant. A lot of the worries people have about going to the dentist come from what they remember as a child. Equipment was bigger and louder then and people seemed more in a rush. It is not like that at all here. At Nedlands Dental we very much focus on making every patient comfortable right from the moment they walk through the door.
When she is not at work Amy likes to spend time with her large extended family, singing karaoke at one another’s houses and relaxing with her loved ones.
