Vocational training Practice
Chu’s Dental Care has been designated a training practice and as such will be training newly qualified dentists. Our first Vocational Dental Practitioner is a qualified dentist, who is being mentored by our principal dentist Garry Chu.
Garry graduated in 2013 from Glasgow University and took a post on the isle of Benbecula, returning to Glasgow for short training posts in paediatric dentistry, and oral and maxillofacial surgery. He joined ACS Gellan and Associate in Dunfermline in 2015 and took over the practice in 2018. Garry has been building up the practice and refurbishing it to the modern surgery that you see today. Outside of work Garry likes to spend time with family, and volunteers as a adult instructor with the Army Cadet Force. He is also involved in the local business network, supporting other local businesses in Dunfermline.
Ella graduated from Newcastle Dental School in 2013, and moved to do her first NHS dentist job on the Isle of Benbecula where she met Garry. She then spent several years in oral and maxillofacial surgery learning about and getting experience in sedation, oral cancer, and oral and dental surgery. She also did a paediatric dentist post, giving her plenty of experience treating and motivating children. Her favourite part of dentistry is making children and anxious patients comfortable to come to the dentist regularly. Outside of work, she used to bag Munros, but now spends most of her energy chasing around after their one year old!
Nadia graduated in 2018 from Dundee University and then has spent the last year working in Rosyth, Fife. During these years, Nadia has travelled with charities to Tanzania and Zanzibar to provide emergency dental treatment in remote areas. She is also a qualified facial aesthetics practitioner and she strives to create a relaxed, friendly environment for all her patients to provide high quality treatment and care.
In her downtime, Nadia likes to keep fit and plays rugby for Dunfermline Ladies. She also loves spending time having fun with family and friends or bagging munros in the unpredictable Scottish weather!
Ivanna graduated in 2019 from Dundee University and has joined the practice under the mentorship of Garry. During her university years, she had the opportunity to do dental elective work in Burundi, Africa where she acquired much of her extraction skills. She delights in giving patients a comfortable experience as much as possible when undergoing dental treatment. She is quite fond of children in general where she had volunteered as an assistant worker with a local church during her university years. Outside of work, she really enjoys her food and loves to meet up with her friends regularly and explore new places wherever she gets the opportunity. On an interesting note, she grew up on a small island in Malaysia.
Lisa has been with the practice for over 20 years. She has built up a good rapport with all of our long standing patients, In her downtime she loves spending time with her family and friends, and being a soccer mum.
Amanda is also a long standing member of the dental team, who loves chatting to patients and putting them at ease. In her spare time she loves shopping, fine dining, keeping fit and spending time with her family.
Robert joined the practice in 2019 to support our expanding team. He qualified as a nurse in September 2017 from I-Dent training in Glasgow. Outside of work he enjoys playing basketball for West Lothian Wolves and is a fan of the NBA and scottish football.
