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.

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*.

Elena, Receptionist
After more than 6 years working in the dental industry, Elena has learned a great deal about running a dental practice! She started her career as a dental nurse before moving into practice management and growing her skillset along the way.

Elena manages the administration for the practice but has plenty of interaction with patients. From discussing treatments and creating treatment plans, to answering the phones and scheduling appointments, she loves to add a personal touch to your dental experience.

Elena’s favourite feedback from patients is how painless their appointment was.

 Our purpose is to improve our patients’ well-being and quality of life. For us there is no greater reward than seeing our patients able to chew efficiently, speak normally and smile confidently again.
