Dr Elizabeth DoveGeneral Dentist
Dr Elizabeth Dove, known as Lizzie by our team and patients, graduated from Dentistry in 2012 from Griffith University on the Gold Coast with a Graduate Diploma of Dentistry and Bachelor of Oral Health in Dental Science. After graduating she lived and worked in Sydney for 6 years. She enjoyed the hustle and bustle of the city but missed her Gold Coast community. She returned home with her husband to grow their family and enjoy the sunny, outdoor lifestyle the Gold Coast has to offer.
Dr Dove has a wide variety of experience in many aspects of dentistry. Her experience in general dentistry is preventatively focused and is driven by her desire to deliver treatment that is right for the individual patient’s health needs, aesthetic desires, and long-term success. Dr Dove understands that dental treatment can be uncomfortable and a source of anxiety for many. She strives to treat her patients with the upmost care and understanding, tailoring treatment to the individual person.
Her experience has involved all aspects of dentistry including comprehensive treatment planning, tooth replacement with dental implants, crowns, veneers, direct aesthetic restorative treatments, tooth extractions, treatment of toothache and periodontal/gum treatments. Dr Dove also enjoys paediatrics thoroughly having treated children of all ages. Dr Dove’s particular area of interest is with sequential aligners and aesthetics.
In 2013 Dr Dove became an accredited Invisalign provider. She then had the amazing opportunity to work with Dr David Penn on developing his course, Graduate Diploma of Aesthetic Orthodontics (Sequential Aligner Therapy) for the Post Graduate School of Dentistry. In doing this she gained a keen understanding of dental and facial aesthetics and the skills in delivering multidiscipline treatment involving Invisalign and aesthetic procedures. She is able to give you not just straight teeth but all that’s required for a beautiful straight smile.
Whilst Dr Dove has extensive experience, she believes that you never stop learning and is committed to continued education. In 2017 Dr Dove completed live surgical training in implant placement and sinus lifts at the Dental Implant Academy in Colombia. Dr Dove has also trained in the use of Botulinum toxin and dermal fillers. In 2018 she completed training in Australia for fundamental dento-facial botulinum toxin and dermal filler training for dentists. Then went on to attended Acquisition Aesthetics in London and completed combined advanced Botox and dermal filler training. Dr Dove has also attended many courses in aesthetic restorations including composite bonding, veneers, and crowns.
Dr Dove enjoys sharing her passion for dentistry and all she has learnt with her patients and also her colleagues. She has worked as a mentor for new graduate dentists and found this extremely rewarding.
Dr Dove’s main focus in delivering treatment is to find the right treatment plan to suit her patient’s health needs and aesthetic desires. She finds the most rewarding part of her job helping patients become more comfortable with dental treatment and having the privilege of giving a patient a beautiful confident smile.
