When you visit us, we’ll take the time to explain all our options in a relaxed and in-depth manner, so you can choose the treatment that suits you best.We also offer payment plans so you can take care of your teeth without skimping on, – it’s all here.

Meet Dr Geoff Wan
Principal Dentist | BSc Chem (UBC), BDSc (USyd)

Hello! I’m Dr Geoffrey Wan. My passion for dentistry developed early on when I was 14 years old when I went to work as a dental assistant for our family dentist in Vancouver Canada.

I studied at the University of Sydney, worked in Sydney, Alice Springs, Dubbo, and also trained and worked in the United States. I am a fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry, a member of the Australian Dental Association, American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, and the Academy of General Dentistry. I also have an EODO Mini Orthodontic Residency.

From my own experiences with dentistry. I knew that I wanted to change how dentistry has traditionally been experienced. I want to ensure that dentistry is pain-free, without anxiety, where you are in control of your dental health and are fully informed every step of the way.

My team and I are here to listen and help you achieve your dental health goals with the utmost professional care, the latest technology with comfort and ease so as you can have the healthiest and most beautiful smile you deserve.

I am now the principal dentist at Bella Dental Penrith and Riverstone. My amazing team and I welcome you to come and experience how dentistry is done differently where you will actually look forward to visiting the dentist.

Meet Dr Alfred Tao
Dentist | B.Dent (Hons), B.Pharm

Hi! I’m Dr Alfred Tao, I was born and grew up in the western suburbs of Sydney where I still live to this day. I attended Fort Street High School before embarking on my tertiary studies at the University of Sydney. I have always had a passion for healthcare whereby I completed my Bachelor of Pharmacy prior to complete my Bachelor of Dentistry with honours. From very early on in my career, I recognised that there is a significant link between the health of the mouth and the rest of the body. I see the importance of treating my patients as a whole and not just the teeth alone.

I am passionate about continuing education and I regularly attend conferences and training throughout Australia and overseas in order to best serve my patients with the most current and advanced techniques. I have interests in cosmetic dentistry, implants, orthodontics and minor oral surgery. I enjoy taking my time to getting to know my patients and explaining treatment options and solutions that are tailored to each individual patient based on their needs and wants.

Outside of dentistry, I enjoy photography, dancing and being active at the gym or exploring the great outdoors. I also enjoy travelling and hanging out with friends over a good old boardgame.

Meet Dr Thanh Huynh
Dentist | D.clin.dent (Griffiths University), BOH

Hi! I’m Thanh. I started my journey as a dentist at Bella Dental in 2018 and it is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I feel so fortunate to be able to work with such an amazing crew, meeting amazing patients and to have the opportunity to improve other people’s lives in some way.

I really do believe a smile is the gateway to who you are – so let’s smile more!

Outside of work, I like to go out for a walk in nature – whether it be the park, the beach or in the forest somewhere, I love to explore the great outdoors.


Meet Dr Elvis Trinh
Dentist | Doctor of Dental Medicine, B.Pharm, GradCertPharmPrac

G’day! I’m Dr Elvis. I grew up in Western Sydney and attended Hurlstone Agricultural High School in Glenfield. I spent most of my days playing basketball at the local PCYC.

I completed my Pharmacy degree and Post-Graduate Certificate in Pharmacy Practice at the University of Sydney where fate would have me meet my future wife who is also a pharmacist. We now have a beautiful daughter and a mini sausage dog named Lola.

I decided to pursue a career in dentistry as I love all the science and art that is involved in dentistry. I enjoy how it allows me to check-in with my regular patients (not just regular teeth and gums) and I am humbled by our ability to help patients get out of pain in a short period of time.

Outside of dentistry, family time is very valuable to me and I enjoy travelling with my young family. I am also an avid NBA fan of the Los Angeles Lakers and I play mixed basketball on weekends. One day, I hope that my daughter and I can embrace the same court together and even on the same basketball team.

I look forward to meeting you all at Bella Dental Riverstone.


Dr. Elvis


Meet Dan Phung
Oral Health Therapist| BOH

Hello! I’m Dan. As a kid I always had terrible dental experiences. It was rushed, the dentist never talked to me nor did they explain anything – I felt like they simply didn’t care.

I developed mild dental phobia because of these experiences and I still hate going to the dentist. But guess what, I made it my mission to ensure kiddos don’t go through the same experience as I had to. I prioritize patience, trust and getting on their level as I believe are all vital to a fun and positive dental experience.

To me, drills are tooth ticklers, plaque is poop and high fives are a must! I simply care.

Meet Alya Almenahi
Oral Health Therapist

Hi! I’m Alya, I’ve been a Penrith girl for nearly my whole life. I started my dental journey nearly 10 years ago and it was the best decision I have ever made. I have always been interested in health and have a degree in Health Science, majoring in Health Promotion. This eventually led me to focus on Oral Health, whereby I completed my Oral Health degree at Sydney University.

My biggest goal when it comes to my patients as a therapist is focusing on prevention and working with my patients to have healthy mouths and healthy smiles by building healthy dental habits.

Outside of work I love travelling and seeing the world, one of my most favourite trips was my visit to Cambodia doing volunteer dental work. While we aren’t travelling internationally these days, I spend most of my time trying to keep fit and enjoying the cafe lifestyle.

Here are just some of our amazing staff at Bella Dental Penrith with decades of combined industry
experience. Trust your teeth in the hands of professionals and renowned clinicians.
