Dr Danielle Bolger

Danielle graduated from Griffith University in 2011 with a bachelor of Oral Health (Dental Science), Graduate Diploma of Dentistry, and was honoured as a member of the Golden Key for her academic achievements.

After working as a dentist in Brisbane for many years, she was frustrated with the move to put profits above patient care with many surgeries run by large corporations now dominating the industry. She wanted to take a different approach.

In 2018 Danielle founded Smile Design Dental because she wanted to bring patient care back to the heart of dental services.

Danielle is focused on providing her patients with a high quality and professional service in a friendly and comfortable environment. It’s about delivering exceptional care, clear communication, and giving patients ample information and autonomy to choose options that are best suited for them.

Her expertise extends across a wide range of dental services. She has seen it all from minor issues including fillings and chipped teeth to major work such as wisdom teeth removal, severe tooth decay and gum disease. Danielle has a particular interest and experience in oral surgery, clear aligners and injectables, with a great focus in creating the ideal smile package.

She likes to paint in her free time, from oil on canvas to fine painting on miniature models. She loves to read and write, having published a paranormal thriller of her own, playing board games with friends and video games at home, and is always looking out for new adventures and challenges to embark on in the future.

Dr Linh Tran

Dr. Linh graduated from Griffith University with a Bachelor of Oral Health in Dental Science and Graduate Diploma in Dentistry with Distinction. After graduation she worked in private practices in Brisbane and Toowoomba for several years before joining Smile Design Dental.

She is gentle in nature and takes a calm and caring approach towards dentistry. Many patients find her approachable and is comfortable discussing their concerns with her. She takes the time to explain treatments to patients and work with the patient to come up with personalised treatment plans. She is also wonderful with children and makes visiting the dentist and keeping teeth a healthy and fun experience.

Linh was born in Melbourne and moved to Queensland with her family where she grew up on a strawberry farm up in the Sunshine coast. She has been passionate about oral health and yearned to be a dentist ever since she received her first bumble bee from the school dental van.

Linh enjoys all aspects of general dentistry with special interest in cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, and orthodontics. Linh is passionate about dentistry and strives to provide her patients with quality dental care and patient satisfaction by attending regular courses and lectures of the latest the dental world has to offer such as: Management of the worn dentition; Invisalign and orthodontics courses; Dermamedical Dermal Fillers and & Antiwrinkle Training; among others.

Outside of dentistry Linh enjoys spending time with her young family, going on park dates and camping trips. She also enjoys Pilates and yoga and like to see herself as a food connoisseur.
