Dr. Samantha Ho leads a thriving team of general dentists. These dedicated professionals are all members of the Australian Dental Association (ADA) and a range of other specialised associations and study groups.
We named the practice ‘Ocean Breeze Dental’ due to our spectacular view overlooking the ocean and the Barwon River. We believe in five-star customer service and helping patients breeze through dental treatment. A lot of patients comment how gentle our dentists are!
Dr Samantha Ho
Hi there, I am Sam. I qualified in Wales in 2009. I have been working in this practice, in Ocean Grove since 2012.
When I first qualified, in Wales, I spent two years working in the dental hospital in the children's clinic. Here I learned many techniques to help anxious children through their treatment, most of which can help nervous adult patients as well. This experience is probably why so many patients comment how gentle I am.
Since then I have kept up to date with extra training. I have extra qualifications to be able to restore implants and place 'mini implants.' I have also undertaken extra training to provide Invisalign in our practice.
I love Australia and enjoy taking a stroll down the beach with my little poodle.
Dr Belinda Wilkie
Hi, my name is Belinda, and I have been practicing Dentistry since 2015. I am very passionate about dentistry and love working with children and anxious patients. Although I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, I have a particular interest in cosmetic dentistry which helps improve your smile and your confidence. I have undertaken further qualifications in 6-month braces and have additional experience in crowns and veneers.
Outside of work I enjoy meeting up with family and friends, walking my dogs and watching movies.
I look forward to meeting you and helping in any way I can!
Dr Dan Sampanthar
Hello, my name is Dan and have been practicing dentistry in Geelong area since 2011, having graduated from Adelaide university in 2010 with Honors.
Since my graduation, I have taken great enjoyment in seeing dentally anxious patients, both young and old, for the first time and having them leave saying ‘that went well’ or ‘I’m not sure what I was worried about.'
I enjoy practicing in all aspects of dentistry- with experience in pain-free cosmetic and rehabilitative dentistry. Outside of work I enjoy eating and drinking with friends as well as keeping fit on my bike in the many stunning locations around Geelong.
I look forward meeting you and helping make your dental journey as pleasant as possible at Ocean Breeze Dental!
Dr Mahwash Masood
GREETINGS! I'm Mahwash and I've been working at this practice since 2014 and in Geelong area since 2007. I graduated in 1999 and have worked in private practices in Sydney and rural Queensland as well.
Dentistry is my passion and I love meeting interesting people everyday. It’s rewarding to see the smiles on their faces as they leave the clinic relaxed and pain-free. Of course, the anaesthesia plays a small role in it too.
While I enjoy practising all aspects of dentistry, I did more extensive courses in TMJ disorders, orthodontics, sleep disorders in adults and particularly in children. Being the mother of a restless sleeper and snorer, I had very special interest in learning more about paediatric sleep issues.
