Meet Our Brisbane Dentists

Dr Vincent Wan

A Family Connection to Dentistry

It was during his high school years that Dr Vincent first considered becoming a dentist. His older sister was studying dentistry at the University of Queensland. She used to bring home models of teeth, instruments and more that Dr Vincent liked to examine. He later tagged along to dental school with her, had a look around and decided he wanted to attend the same institution. His sister is now a specialist pediatric dentist on the Gold Coast, lecturing and researching. Dr Vincent’s brother Dr Allen was also influenced by their sister and works with him at First Dental Studio.

Providing Excellent Dental Care

Dr Vincent holds a Bachelor of Dental Science with first-class honours, obtained at the University of Queensland in 2003. During his years there, he started up the Infusion Dental Study Club. Their group became affiliated with the Australian Dental Association and still meets once per month, meeting up to learn from speakers and compare cases. Dr Vincent is the former president and current treasurer of the organisation. He takes regular continuing education courses to stay current on the latest within the dental field. In his spare time, he collects toys that you’ll see in his dental surgery or is with his wife and young son, Jasper. Dr Vincent also owns and practises at Central Brisbane Dental, also in the Brisbane CBD.

Dr Allen Wan

Developing an Interest in Dentistry

Dr Allen achieved a Bachelor of Dental Science with first-class honours from the University of Queensland, graduating in 2009.

He enjoys the challenge of dentistry, intrigued by each patient’s case and how best to help them.

Staying Current on the Latest Techniques

He provides a broad range of dental services and has a particular interest in preventative dentistry, root canal treatment and crown and bridge work. Dr Allen regularly updates his knowledge and skills by attending numerous continuing education courses on subjects such as aligner orthodontics and dental implants.
