After careful evaluation of our local community situation, Leanne and Rachael have made the tough decision to close their dental practice until further notice. In doing so, the L&R Dental team are taking steps to be proactive in reducing the impact of COVID-19 on our valued patients and Toowoomba community. Any non-urgent enquiries can be submitted through the contact form on our website. If you have an emergency, please call our clinic during office hours for further advice from one of our experienced team members. Thank you for your support and understanding during this time.

Priyanka Vanama - Oral Health Therapist

Priyanka is an Oral Health Therapist that completed her bachelor’s degree at Central Queensland University in Rockhampton. She was originally raised in New Zealand and did both her primary and secondary schooling there, before moving to Australia.

After studying some psychology at Griffith University, she realized that her interests lay somewhere else and that’s when she decided to pursue a career in the dental industry as an Oral health therapist. 

Her passion is to work with children and adults in reducing their fear of coming to the dental clinic and ensuring that they leave with the thought of visiting again.  Prevention has always been her main focus, identifying and dealing with the underlying problem before it gets worse.

Joining the L & R dental team was an easy decision as everyone shares similar values and strive for patient comfort. When she isn’t working with teeth, Priyanka loves to bake, binge watch Netflix shows, sew and explore the parks in Toowoomba.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
