DENTAL TREATMENTS AND SERVICES
Dr Luc Evans
BSc(Hons), BDS, FDSRCS (London), MBChB (1st Class honours), MRCS (London)
Having graduated from the Welsh National Dental School with the prize in Restorative Dentistry, Luc is one of very few dentists that also have a first class honours degree in Medicine. He also has qualifications in dentistry and general surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons of London and has worked in fields such as Emergency Medicine, Plastic Surgery and Orthopaedics in Britain and Australia. Luc has been a qualified dentist for 17 years and will always continue to take part in on-going training to ensure he is able to provide the best possible up-to-date treatment for his patients.
With a strong surgical background, Luc is delighted to be able to offer complete in-house services such as dental implants. He has also embraced the latest CAD/CAM technology, meaning restorations that previously had to be made by a laboratory can now be made at the practice on the same day. For our patients this means no messy impressions, no temporary restorations and no need for a second visit. Luc is also an accredited provider of Invisalign® clear orthodontic braces hence the straightening of teeth is provided in-house at Hunter Family Dental, without the need for referral.
Outside of work, Luc is a sports-lover. He played for 3 unbeaten seasons for the Wales Under 21 rugby team, including 2 wins against New Zealand. More recently, Luc has loved competing in Ironman triathlon and is a passionate supporter of a charity called the KIDS Foundation – www.kidsfoundation.org.au
Graduating from the University of Newcastle in 2007 with a Bachelor of Oral Health, Elizabeth has been a part of the team at Hunter Family Dental since March 2010.
Never has the saying “prevention is better than cure” been more appropriate than in the dental context. As a practice we place great importance not only on preventing dental and oral disease, but in looking after restorations so that they last as long as possible. Elizabeth is at the forefront of this philosophy as the practice’s dental hygienist.
In addition to her university studies, Elizabeth stays up to date with current research and oral hygiene products by undertaking several professional development courses throughout the year. As dental implants are one of the many services we provide at Hunter Family Dental, Elizabeth has attended courses specifically on implant maintenance. Elizabeth is also qualified to perform dental bleaching procedures within the dental surgery, eliminating the need for a 2 week course of at-home bleaching.
Outside of work, Elizabeth enjoys spending time with friends and family, playing netball and golf. Elizabeth embraces the holiday friendly attitude at Hunter Family Dental and has recently returned from a trip to the USA.
