Meet the Team at O Dental

Dr Yuval Samuni

Dr Yuval Samuni Dentist Zetland Oral SurgeonWe are pleased to welcome Dr Yuval Samuni to the O Dental team. He brings extensive oral surgery experience to the practice, with over 20 years of knowledge and specialist expertise.

By day, Dr Yuval is a Dental Board of Australia Registered Specialist Oral Surgeon. He obtained his dental degree in 1996 from the Hebrew University Hadassah School of Dental Medicine in Israel and completed his training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in 2004.
In 2012 Dr Yuval was awarded a master’s degree in Health Administration. He went on to obtain a PhD in Biochemistry and undertook a postdoctoral fellowship in the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR/NIH) in the USA.

After hours, you might find Dr Yuval halfway up a rock climbing wall, or cooking up a storm in the kitchen with some new, experimental dish. He spends most of his time with his family — his wife, three children and their two dogs — and enjoys hiking with family and friends, reading history books and biographies.

We are delighted and honoured to have Dr Yuval join the team. He has published book chapters, and scientific articles in peer-reviewed international journals and has extensive knowledge and experience in the field of implant dentistry.

Experience Compassionate Dentistry

Having completed thousands of procedures, Dr Yuval is exceptionally capable. He also has an outstanding ability to foster and maintain professional and warm relationships with his patients, so you will not only have access to the highest dental credentials but also sincere, caring compassion.

Dr Diep Luu

Dr Diep Luu Dentist ZetlandDr Diep grew up in South Australia and would visit the SA Dental Service routinely as a child. She fondly recalls looking forward to the stickers at the end of each visit, which would usually end up on the walls and fridge at home, much to her mum’s dismay. It was the lasting impression of exceptionally caring dentists who made every visit special which led Dr Diep into dentistry.

An Associate Dentist with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Adelaide, Dr Diep has recently taken an interest in building up front teeth in composite using various techniques.

As a member of the Australian Dental Association, she enjoys access to a range of continuing education courses. She also attends regular dinner meetings with the Australian Society of Endodontology to review and discuss various topics related to root canal treatments.

Dr Diep recently spent 18 months treating anxious and medically compromised children at Sydney Dental Hospital’s Paediatric Department and a year rotating around their specialist departments including Endodontics, Paediatrics, Periodontics, Prosthodontics and Oral Surgery.

She has honed her skills in treating anxious patients and helping them to realise that a visit to the dentist doesn’t have to be scary or painful.

To help her patients maintain excellent oral health, Dr Diep enjoys discussing preventative care to reduce the need for fillings or other invasive treatment in the future. She treats entire families and helps everyone feel at ease. She makes a point of getting to know all of her patients and treating them as if they were her own family.

Outside the Practice

When she’s not caring for patients, you will find Dr Diep experimenting with different cuisines in the kitchen (she would love you to share recipes as she’s running out of ideas!). She’s also an avid reader and reckons if she hadn’t gone into dentistry she’d probably be a librarian or work in a bookstore.

Watching movies rates highly in her downtime, as does going for walks and exploring Sydney. A self-professed kid at heart, Dr Diep loves cartoons and animated movies, cakes and the occasional sticker!
