Meet Our Team
Janice graduated from the University of Sydney (1st class Hons) in 2003, followed by several years working in Westmead Dental Hospital, private practices and at times being a clinical educator of dental students at the University of Sydney.
In 2008, Janice started Bright-On Bay Dental Clinic in her father’s medical practice (Dr William Lau). Their family have been serving and residing in the local St George community for over 40 years.
Being an independent, family-owned practice allows Janice to practice dentistry in an unrestricted way. This enables her to help others with her dental expertise and provide them with quality dental treatment. Janice really hopes that she can help you and your family – that’s just the type of person she is! She passionately equips each patient with knowledge about their oral health and how to make appropriate changes that will benefit them, their family and friends. That way, regardless of where life may take them, they can look after their oral health.
Technology has brought some great changes to the way dentistry is practiced, to make it more comfortable, convenient and cost effective for the patient. Continual professional development means that Janice has integrated new technology into Bright-On Bay Dental to benefit our patients.
Aside from work, she now has of two beautiful, happy young boys. This has helped spark a desire to learn more about how to help nurture and develop young children as she puts her best efforts to raising them. She is a big advocate of early detection and intervention which corrects problems that can impede a child’s growth and development. This helps to minimise future treatment needs and costs.
We are proud to announce that as of 2021, Bright-On Bay Dental is ‘going green’ with our products and services to help reduce our impact on the environment.
