BOHDSc GDipDENT MClin Dental (Oral Surgery) GradDipDental (Oral Implants)
Dr Leesa Aukett graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery with Distinction from Otago University, New Zealand, in 2003. Leesa relocated to Queensland with her husband in 2006, quickly making beautiful Noosa their home and has since been a dentist in Noosa Shire. Leesa is a caring dentist who enjoys providing all aspects of general dental care with an emphasis on a preventive approach and especially enjoys the long-term professional relationships she forms with her patients, many of whom date back to her arrival on the Sunshine Coast. She performs cosmetic procedures and oral rehabilitation (crown and bridge and implant restorations) as well as white composite dental fillings and finds oral surgery (dental extractions) and endodontic treatment (root canal) quite satisfying.
Leesa takes the time to get to know you and what you hope to achieve through dentistry, whether prompt emergency treatment, maintenance of your teeth for comfort and function, or an aesthetic transformation to achieve a perfect white smile. Leesa is also experienced in providing treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea with mandibular advancement splints as an alternative to CPAP.
As the mother of a school-aged child, Leesa enjoys providing dental care to our littlest patients. Leesa successfully helps both children and dental phobic patients reduce their fear of dentistry to have their dental treatment in more comfort. When she is not working or attending the latest dental courses, Leesa can spend time with her family, who are learning to surf and roller-skate together. Leesa enjoys a strong connection with our local community and is often involved in volunteer projects.
