Dr Ly Tran (BDS Adel)
Ly is a Board accredited dentist having obtained his Bachelor of Dental Surgery qualifications from the University of Adelaide in 2009 and draws on 12 years of dental experience. He has previously worked in the Special Needs Unit (SNU) at the Adelaide Dental Hospital in his final year of dental studies where he was part of the team that was responsible for the management of medically compromised patients with chronic illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, cancer and transplant recipients. During his time with the South Australian Dental Service Ly was also fortunate to be offered an opportunity to work with the Broken Hill-based Royal Flying Doctors Service. He remained in this role for a year at the Special Needs Unit before transitioning to private practice when he accepted a position at a dental clinic in the northern suburbs of Adelaide.
In June of 2009 Ly commenced his employment at Jamestown Dental under the mentorship of Dr Richard Daley, initially on a part-time basis before committing to Jamestown full-time in early 2010 when he became Practice Principal. After successfully managing the practice for 6 years Ly made the decision to relocate back to his hometown of Adelaide to be closer with friends and family hence the establishment of Myrtle Bank Dental in 2016.
Transitioning back to Adelaide has also allowed Ly more opportunities to support local community projects, such as volunteering his time and dental skills to helping the homeless people in Adelaide through his work with the National Dental Foundation (NDF) and Salvation Army.
Ly enjoys all aspects of general dentistry but his main interests include cosmetic dentistry, implant therapy and oral surgery. Ly also actively participates in regular continuing professional development courses throughout the year across Australia to ensure that his knowledge and skills remain up to date.
Beyond dentistry Ly is a keen fan of tennis, with Roger Federer being his tennis idol.
