Dr. P.Y. Lai
Dr P.Y. Lai is the only dual trained Brisbane specialist in the specialties of Paediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics. Both these specialties being upmost important for children, he is therefore able to diagnose, manage and treat your child in the best possible way. This is particularly important if a decision needs to be made on the spot when proceeding with treatment under general anaesthetics. Despite all the preparations and treatment planning prior to surgery, many situations may arise where the specialised skills of both a paediatric dentist and an orthodontist are called for. In addition to many years of dedicated children dental care, since 1991, Dr P.Y. is actively involved in teaching, lecturing, and taking up appointments as an external examiner for training specialists.
