Dr Sen Le and Dana Mitic of Florey Dental Care enjoy educating children about good oral health.
Florey Dental Care principal dentist
Sen Le loves making children smile.
The best part of his job is
educating youngsters on oral health,
a role he is well suited for, as he
himself was a child growing up in
Florey not too long ago.
"I really enjoy dealing with kids
and ensuring that they have a good
experience, so that they don t
develop a fear of the dentist, which is
very common," he said.
"I like to treat people rather than
just the teeth -- I like to think that
there s people attached to those
After attending Florey Primary
and Hawker College, Dr Le made the
move to Sydney to study dentistry.
He could not be more excited to be
back in his home town after so many
years away, setting up shop at a
brand-new practice at Florey Shops.
"It seemed like the logical and
smart thing to do, to come back to
where I grew up," Dr Le said.
"I ve always loved Canberra, just
the lifestyle, it s quiet, and it s where
I grew up so I ve got a strong
"I m returning home to be part of
that community again, to look after
and support the locals."
Dr Le and the team at Florey
Dental Care offer a range of services
and are already being embraced by
clients of all ages.
"We cover every aspect of dental
services, anything from check-ups
and cleanings to fillings, root canals,
crowns, implants and orthodontics
too, he said.
We like to think that people can
get everything they need in one
The practice also offers emergency
dental services, and Dr Le said being
able to help someone who was in
pain because of a dental trauma was
one of the most rewarding aspects of
Dr Le explained good oral hygiene
doesn t just affect our teeth.
Florey Dental Centre is focused on
educating the public about how
having a healthy mouth can affect the
rest of the body.
"The beginning of a healthy body
is our mouth -- everything starts with
our teeth," he said.
"I always explain to patients that
for germs or bacteria to get into our
bloodstream they need a portal of
entry on the outside of the body.
Inside the mouth it can enter
through our gums if they are bleeding
"That s why it s so crucial that we
protect our teeth and our mouth, have
them clean so we can keep our body
and blood healthy."

In past years the EPA has
received more than 1000 complaints,
particularly over the summer
period, he said. "The number of
noise complaints in the ACT has
dropped by 33 per cent since we first
launched the campaign in 2009. We

noise breaches, while more serious
complaints have the potential to
attract a fine of $1000.
