Dr Esther Chin (General Dentist)

Dr Esther


Dr Esther has always been keen on health science. She views dentistry as not just about having academic knowledge but also requiring hands-on skills and social/emotional interaction with people of all ages and age groups.

I enjoy helping people improve their dental health, overcome their phobias, look good and feel good about their teeth, smile confidently, and be free of discomfort and disease.”

Education & Professional Development

To prepare for her career, Dr Esther earned a Bachelor of Dental Science from the University of WA in 2006. To keep abreast of the latest in dentistry, she has attended many postgraduate dental courses. In recent years, she has taken courses on implant dentistry, with plans to take a porcelain veneer course. Here are some of the other courses Dr Esther has taken and the qualifications she possesses:

  • 2023: became a member of the Australasian Osseointegration Society (AOS ) and doing dinner meetings; Porcelain Veneer Course by Minimax
  • 2022: IAAD implant study club meetings
  • Surgical Master Implant Blueprint online course by Dr Ziv. Simon

  • Laser Dentistry: Where Are We Now? With Dr Ilay Maden
  • Teledent Cone Beam CT Radiation Licensing Theory Course DEN-4 with Dr Louise Brown

Finding Fulfillment Helping Patients Beam Brilliantly

Dr Esther sees the mouth as a whole and likes to help patients achieve healthy teeth and love their smiles; she will do smile makeovers if they desire. She also enjoys getting patients out of pain and helping them overcome their dental anxiety or fear. It’s also rewarding to Dr Esther when patients can enjoy their favourite foods and regularly come to the dentist with confidence in her care.

Enjoying an Active Family Life

When she’s not caring for patients’ smiles, Dr Esther likes to ride her bicycle, travel to other countries, and watch movies, but most of all, she loves to be with her family – a husband and two young daughters.
