Dr Leanne Paterson

Sunshine Coast Dentist Leanne Patterson

Hello! I’m Leanne and I have been a proud member of the Kawana Dental team since 2017.

I grew up in the city of Edinburgh, Scotland, and gained my dental degree in (not-so-sunny) Glasgow. My partner Luke and I made the best decision of our lives and moved to the Sunshine Coast in 2015 and have never looked back.

My passion in dentistry is caring for the smiles of our smallest patients. I am always greatly humbled that families put their trust in me to look after their little ones and strive to provide them with a fun, positive experience and high quality care. I reckon I have the best patients on the Sunshine Coast ;), because they make going to work feel like hanging out with the coolest little mates!

I love working with children so much that in 2021 I completed a three year postgraduate degree in Paediatric Dentistry, which has expanded my knowledge and skills to ensure I can provide as broad a range of treatment for my patients as possible. I enjoy keeping up-to-date with developments in Paediatric Dentistry and have been working towards having my postgraduate research published and sharing my findings by delivering seminars and lectures to my dental colleagues.

I am excited to be returning to work after taking some time off to be “mama”, as Luke and I welcomed our first baby, Skye, in July last year.
