Meet Dentist Dr Debra Li

I became interested in dentistry as it gave me the opportunity to explore my interest in health and wellbeing as well as the artistic aspect of the job.”

Education and Memberships

Dr Debra earned the following from the University of Otago in New Zealand:

Bachelor of Medical Science
Bachelor of Dental Surgery
Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery

Dr Debra is also a member of the Australian Dental Association (ADA) and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

Finding Satisfaction Helping Patients

For Dr Debra, ensuring patient satisfaction is paramount. “I’m a firm believer that patients need to understand the choices we present to them to be able to make the correct decision for them. Each patient is different and the same ‘recipe’ cannot be applied to everyone.”

Helping to make anxious patients feel comfortable is another aspect of her job that Dr Debra loves. “I enjoy seeing, by the end of their treatment, that their dental phobia is a thing of the past.” She also loves to see happy patients walk out the door after their dental treatment.

Outside the Practice

In her spare time, Dr Debra enjoys travelling. Her two favourite countries that she’s visited so far are Greece and Iceland. She has family all over the world that she likes to visit.

In addition to travelling, Dr Debra enjoys being outdoors and has started to surf. She and her partner have a Miniature Schnauzer called Finn. They love to take him on adventures in their covered VW van.
