Meet our Team
Hello! I’m Dr Geoffrey Wan. I am the principal dentist at Bella Dental Penrith. 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 graduated from The University of Sydney in 2006. I have worked in Sydney, Alice Springs, Dubbo and I also trained and worked in the United States. My biggest interest within dentistry includes complex rehabilitative and restorative dentistry. I also have extensive experience in orthodontics using traditional braces along with modern clear aligner technology, like Invisalign.
I am registered with the AHPRA Dental Board, the Australian Dental Association, a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry, a Mentor with the General Dental Residency, a certified BIOCLEAR provider, and have completed the EODO Mini Orthodontic Residency.
My goal at Bella Dental is 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 favourite is actually being able to communicate and listen well to anxious patients who can then overcome their fears and be relaxed enough to get the treatment that they need.
I have always had a passion for helping others. In addition to helping patients, I actively coach and mentor younger dentists in an organization called the General Dental Residency or GDR. This is a unique program designed to develop new and recent graduate dentists with the skills and confidence to serve their patients better. This is an indirect way for me to help more patients beyond the community of Penrith.
My team and I are here to listen and to help you achieve your dental health goals with the utmost professional care. We invest in the latest technology and professional courses to provide dentistry with comfort and ease so you can have the healthiest and most beautiful smile you deserve.
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.
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.
Hello! I’m Dr Rachael Kumar and I was raised in South-West Sydney. From an early age, I had a strong desire to pursue a career in the health sector and serve my local community.
I was introduced to the wonderful world of Dentistry when I completed work experience at a dental clinic in high school. I then worked as a Dental Assistant while completing my Bachelor of Medical Science at UNSW and subsequently Doctor of Dental Medicine at Sydney University.
As a clinician, I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry and am grateful that my profession allows me to improve my patients’ health and overall quality of life. My goal is to connect with my patients, understand their concerns and provide a tailored treatment approach suited to their needs. I prioritise ongoing education and frequently attend courses to ensure that I am up to date with the latest dental techniques. I focus on delivering high quality care to my patients in a calm, comfortable and relaxed environment.
When the scrubs are off, I enjoy spending time with my family, painting and listening to podcasts. My husband and I also enjoy exploring new countries and learning new languages.
I look forward to meeting you at your next dental visit!
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.
