    Dr. Melanie Chan - Principal Dentist

    Hello, I’m Dr Melanie Chan and I am proud to lead this vibrant team at Spencer Road Dental Care.


    An experienced and caring dentist with a particular interest in the management of phobic patients, I graduated from the University of Western Australia in 2001 with Honours and am constantly furthering my education in dentistry with postgraduate continuing education study.

    Being a member of the Australian Dental Association of both federal and state (WA) branches, I am also current and competent in Senior First Aid.

    About me

    I believe in the right to empower children in developing communities so that they can reach their fullest potential. By doing so, I believe we can stop the cycle of poverty and transform the lives of the children involved, their families and their local communities.

    As a result, our surgery is currently sponsoring an underprivileged child from Africa through PLAN Australia, who is one of the oldest and largest children’s development organisations in the world, and has no political or religious affiliations.

    Our team at Spencer Road also believes in giving back to our community, which is why we have volunteered our dental surgery premises and our time for several Tzu Chi International Medical Association (TIMA) volunteer dental service days to treat homeless and refugee groups. 

    Our team at Spencer Road Dental Care strives to achieve the best possible dental care for each and every one of our valued patients, in a gentle, relaxed, and caring atmosphere. I look forward to making a change to your perception of dentistry. Take care, and God bless.

    Personal interests and hobbies

    I am married to my wonderful husband who is constantly supporting me in whatever I pursue. On my days out of the surgery, our family spends time together cooking and baking or chilling out with the young ones in the nearby park or beach.
