Dr Lisa

Dr Lisa was born and raised in Canberra and moved to Brisbane (Queensland) to study a Bachelor of Dental Science (Hons). Since then, a change of pace and environment has brought her to Launceston.

In her spare time she enjoys cooking and hopes to explore more of Tasmania. If you see her around town, she is likely wearing a few layers of puffer jackets.

Dr Lisa especially enjoys paediatric and preventative dentistry but is keen to take care of all dental needs. She is also fluent in Mandarin Chinese.

Her goal is to provide compassionate care while providing the resources and knowledge for the patients to walk away with happier and healthier smiles.”

Dr John Rebenque


John decided to become a dentist at a fairly young age. It was heavily influenced by his Auntie whom he was fortunate enough to watch and observe.

John loves the artistic aspect of dentistry that no one really considers. The dental profession put together the things he values most; artistry, teaching, and the generic helping others in need.

These realisations helped him pave a pathway to where he is today.

From training to be a dental technician in years 11 & 12, to undergraduate and post graduate study to becoming a fully fledged dentist.

Tara Brooks


Tara Brooks grew up on a farm in country Victoria before moving to Adelaide to study a diploma of Dental Hygiene.

Tara practiced as a Dental Hygienist in a busy dental clinic in the central business district of Adelaide for 16 years and helped pioneer a Government scheme to introduce dental treatment and oral hygiene programs to Aged Care Residents.

Tara moved to Launceston in 2016 to fulfill a lifelong dream of living in beautiful Tasmania with her husband Francis and son Thomas. In her spare time Tara delights in the bushwalking, beaches, fresh air and world class produce that Tasmania has to offer.

Tara is passionate about preventative dental care and treatment to facilitate lifelong oral health.
