Special Interests / Areas of Focus
Liban’s main passion is providing cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics in a calm and relaxed environment for all patients, especially those whom are anxious and nervous. He has invested much time, resources and expenses to travel, getting vast experience and education in Invisalign clear aligner therapy, traditional fixed braces and early intervention orthopaedics which is aimed at modifying the growth of the jaws in order to resolve crowding and other forms of malalignment. He is a strong believer that orthodontics should not only focus on alignment of teeth but also to improve facial profile.
Liban has many years of experience in dealing with complex smile design and reconstruction cases using porcelain crowns, veneers and dental implants. He has worked alongside Melbourne’s leading dental laboratory’s using advanced digital smile design technology to help his patients achieve long lasting, healthy smile makeovers.
Wisdom Teeth and Dental Implantology
Another of Liban’s key interests is wisdom teeth removal and dental implantology which led him to complete The International Academy of Advanced Dentistry (IAAD) Comprehensive Implantology program as well as an Oral Surgery Wisdom teeth post graduate program. His unique combination of education and training allows him to implement cutting-edge treatment, offering patients comprehensive, predictable and long-term treatment solutions.
Gentle and Compassionate
Together with his extensive experience dealing with complex dental conditions, Liban brings a compassionate and gentle manner to his patients.
