Meet Dr Shirley Wan

Complete Smile Care at Hello Dental

Dr Shirley Wan Dentist Mission BayOur family dentist offers attentive, friendly care to patients of all ages. Here, your entire household can find a dental team that they know and trust.

At a young age, Dr Wan knew that she wanted to become a dentist. In high school, one of her part-time jobs was working as a dental assistant in the afternoons and during holidays. Her time spent alongside a local dentist showed her the joy and fulfilment of how being in the profession could benefit the lives and quality of life of others in her community.

My favourite part about being a dentist is the patient interaction … being able to give back to the community and help others. Every day I get to meet new people from the area and learn new things about my patients’ lives as I see them throughout the years.”

Training in Dentistry, Orthodontics and Facial Cosmetics

After completing her Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Otago in 2012, Dr Wan went directly into practicing family dentistry. But dental work isn’t all that she provides. Dr Wan has completed numerous training courses in Facial Rejuvenation techniques (such as Dysport® and dermal fillers) to help her patients enjoy both beautiful teeth and a confident smile. She has also taken several courses in laser dentistry and Invisalign®.

Away From the Office

Most of her life, Dr Wan enjoyed dancing and ballet. Now as a new mum, she stays busy spending time with her family. She and her husband are quite active in their church, where she sponsors a “sister” in the Philippines.

If your family is looking for a gentle, attentive dentist or dental office that you can call home, contact us today to schedule your first visit with Dr Wan. We’re open late and on Saturdays!
