Meet the Team at L&R Dental

Our team at L&R Dental clinic provide exceptional dental care that is both compassionate and uses the latest treatment techniques to ensure all our patients have access to quality oral health.

The concept for L&R Dental began with the dream of two dentists, Dr Leanne Welsh and Dr Rachael Milford, who wanted to invest their professional skills in an area with a strong local identity and a sense of community. During their time at university, they planned their dream dental clinic located in Toowoomba.

Both Dr Welsh and Dr Milford continually invest in their patients by implementing the latest technology to give Toowoomba families leading-edge dental care. Dr Phoebe Fernando found this idealistic approach to dentistry refreshing and joined our team, fully embracing life and work in Toowoomba.

At L&R Dental, we are patient-focused and gentle. Each member of our team became interested in dentistry because of the opportunity it provides to change people's lives by making them feel great about their smiles.

We are committed to delivering the finest dentistry in a warm and friendly environment. This makes taking care of your smile an easy, and even enjoyable, experience. You can learn a little more about our team by reading through our biographies. We can't wait to welcome you to L&R Dental.
