Dr Ly Tran BDS (Adel) PGDip Dig. Ortho (UK)
Practice Principal and Cosmetic Dentist
Dr Ly is a Board accredited dentist having obtained his Bachelor of Dental Surgery qualifications from the University of Adelaide and draws on over 18 years of dental experience. He previously worked in the Special Needs Unit (SNU) at the Adelaide Dental Hospital during his final year of dental studies in 2008 where he was part of the team that was responsible for the management of medically compromised patients with chronic illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, cancer and transplant recipients. During his time with the South Australian Dental Service Dr Ly was also fortunate to be offered an opportunity to work with the Broken Hill-based Royal Flying Doctors Service. He remained in this role at the Special Needs Unit for a year before transitioning to private practice when he accepted a position at a northern suburbs-based dental clinic.
In June of 2009 Dr Ly commenced his employment at Jamestown Dental under the mentorship of Dr Richard Daley, initially on a part-time basis before committing to Jamestown full-time in early 2010 when he became Practice Principal. After successfully managing the practice for 6 years Dr Ly made the difficult decision to relocate back to his hometown of Adelaide to be closer with friends and family and eventually established Myrtle Bank Dental, a cosmetic focused dental clinic.
Dr Ly is a gentle and caring dentist and remains committed to ensuring that his patients receive access to the highest standards of modern dental care available by significantly increasing his scope of practice to include cosmetic veneer treatment, implants, oral surgery, Invisalign (clear braces) and the fabrication of chairside, cutting-edge porcelain CEREC crownwork. Dr Ly also actively participates in regular continuing professional development courses throughout the year across Australia (and abroad) to ensure that his knowledge and skills always remains up to date.
Dr Ly has also successfully completed his Postgraduate Diploma in Digital Orthodontics (UK) which allows Dr Ly to perform sequential aligner therapy (such as Invisalign) in a safe and efficient manner.
Dr Ly believes strongly in giving back to the country that has provided him with so many opportunities and as such is involved with various local community projects, such as volunteering his time and dental skills to helping the homeless people in Adelaide through his work with the Salvation Army.
Beyond dentistry, Dr Ly is a keen fan of tennis, with Roger Federer being his tennis idol.
