About Us

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

Principal Dentist

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 Gerrard Vipulananthan

Dentist

Hey, I’m Gerrard. I graduated Dentistry from La Trobe University, Bendigo. Since then, I was working at a private practice in Ballarat before moving to Ocean Grove to encapsulate myself within a tight-knit community. I am passionate about providing comprehensive dental and oral care for all ages with the consistent aim of achieving an outcome that is stable, functional and aesthetic. I believe that it takes a level of trust for a patient to make the first step to visit the dentist, and thus I will always do my best to respect and uphold this through continued communication with the patient about their oral condition and provide them with both realistic consultation and my best care.

Outside of dentistry, I enjoy watching movies and spending time with my puppy, Zachary.

I look forward to meeting you, listening to you and helping you with the best of my ability.

Dr Lindsay Hamilton

Dentist

Hi, I’m Lindsay. I enjoy providing dental care for the whole family, working with you to help achieve and maintain a healthy mouth.

I have been practicing dentistry since qualifying from the University of Dundee (Scotland) in 2006. In 2009 I achieved The Diploma of Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgeons (MFDS) of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and I am a member of the Australian Dental Association (ADA).

I feel very fortunate to live and work in the wonderful Ocean Grove Community where I have been made very welcome. I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors. I have recently got into triathlon training and also enjoy paddleboarding on the river.  I am trying to surf but that is definitely a work in progress!

Dr Charlie Kong

Dentist

Hi, I’m Charlie. I enjoy working with patients to improve their oral condition and provide comprehensive care to all patients. I graduated from the University of Queensland and have been working in private practice in Adelaide and Regional SA. I am excited to move back to Victoria, where I completed my schooling and spend some time with my parents.

I enjoy treating patients from all backgrounds and especially have treated many anxious or neglected patients and helped them work through, for some, their greatest fear. I strive to make you feel comfortable and informed about your oral condition and what treatment may be possible. I aim to provide excellent quality work with a caring attitude and stay current with the latest technology and techniques.

On weekends, you may catch me on my bicycle or spending time with my family by the beach.
