Dr. Gregory Yap

Greg was born in Sydney, Australia, but spent most of his earlier years moving around Australia, Malaysia and the Philippines due to his father’s work. His family eventually settled down in Perth in the late 90’s, and Greg proceeded to graduate from Christ Church Grammar School and subsequently complete his Bachelor of Dental Science at the University of Western Australia in 2010. Since graduation, Greg has been very interested in the area of restorative Dentistry, and enjoys keeping up with the changes to materials, techniques, technology and software in modern dental practice. He also likes the variety that comes with general dentistry, and continues to attend seminars and courses to advance his learning and experience in every field. Greg places great importance on being able to communicate with his patients, and also being upfront and honest about any information that is being discussed. He also is of the mindset that any work should be done once and done properly. Outside of dentistry, Greg enjoys keeping active with sports such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and basketball, and tries to find time to embrace new technology whether it’s through PC or console games, using virtual reality devices like the Oculus Rift, or just spending too much time at JB Hi-Fi in general (to his wife Jen’s dismay).

Dr. Matthew Yoon

Matt is a fully registered Dental practitioner, and is a member of the Australian Dental Association. Being born and raised in Perth, Matt obtained his degree in Dentistry from the University of Western Australia in 2012. After gaining experience in various locations such as Kalgoorlie, Bunbury and Sydney, he is delighted to finally be back home in Perth. Matt is well known amongst his colleagues as a perfectionist when it comes to his dentistry, and is passionate about producing work that will not only impress his patients, but also the dentists who may see them in the future. He enjoys all aspects of general dentistry, but his greatest strengths lie in gentle impacted wisdom tooth removal, aesthetic composite restorations and dental crowns thanks to a wealth of training and experience. He is also highly trained in dental implant surgery and uses the latest computer aided planning techniques and painless key-hole surgery to deliver optimal outcomes. Aside from dentistry, he loves catching up with his friends, playing sport and of course relaxing at home with some Netflix. He has recently fallen in love with golf, and spends a good part of his spare time being terrible at the driving range.

Grace O'Connell

Dental Hygienist
Grace was born in Adelaide and spent most of her high school life in Perth. She also spent a few years living in Kuala Lumpur for her father's work. After graduating from Curtin University’s Dental Hygiene course in 2010 and working for a few years in Perth, Grace decided to move to London and work as a locum Dental Hygienist. This gave her broad exposure to a variety of dental practices, and the fantastic opportunity to treat a varied range of dental conditions and diseases. Whilst in London she attended numerous dental courses and conferences as she continually honed her craft. Grace has a strong passion for dental prevention and believes it is the most important aspect of all dentistry - to prevent disease before it starts. She loves how this involves spending time educating patients and directly addressing their dental questions and concerns. Grace prides herself in her work and takes true joy in seeing her patients improve in both their understanding and their overall dental health. In her spare time, Grace enjoys going out with her family and friends to new cafes and restaurants. Grace and her husband have renovated their house recently, and she has now spent so much time painting that she actually enjoys it!

After moving to Australia in the 80’s, Simon did a stint with the Princess Margaret Hospital working with the school Dental service before purchasing a practice in Applecross. Simon made the move to Booragoon in the late 90’s, and continues to practice at number 178 under what has now become known as Riseley Street Dental.
