Sunshine Coast Dentist Leanne Patterson

Leanne grew up close to the city of Edinburgh in Scotland, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery, with Honours, from the University of Glasgow.

She is happiest treating children and has an amazing ability to connect with kids and make their experience a fun one. Her little patients are often excited to come back to see their dentist, whose favourite Disney character is Elsa from Frozen.

In 2013, Leanne spent some time with the Royal Flying Doctor Service in rural New South Wales and travelled Queensland, before returning to the UK to work. Two years later and the beaches were calling, so Leanne and her partner Luke made the permanent move to Australia and are very proud to call the beautiful Sunshine Coast their home.

In her spare time, Leanne swaps her dental coat for a tutu and tights, attending ballet classes twice per week and participating in performances with her dance school.
