Who is Dr. Leonard Hoffenberg
I graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa in 1985, and my formal qualifications include:
- Bachelor of Science (BSC)
- Bachelor of Dentistry (BDS)
I successfully passed, arguably, one of the most stringent examinations, the Australian Dental examination for overseas dentists in 1996.
My family immigrated to Australia in January 1998. My wife, Carmella and I have two wonderful children, Jaron and Kim and our family is completed by our labrador, Tasha.
I chose to be a dentist because it allows me to provide care within the medical profession, and also to harness my creative talents by producing beautiful smiles in a caring environment.
I am proud to say that I am passionate about dentistry. Before immigrating to Australia I practiced in my own very successful practice in South Africa until 1997.
I have been practicing here in Australia since 1998, and founded TLC Dental in that year. I chose this name because it epitomizes the way I practice. Many people are nervous of having dental treatment. I want our patients to feel comfortable in a warm, caring environment, and I want them to believe and understand that they are receiving, not only the highest standard of dental care, but also total personal service by a dedicated, cohesive team.
I consider myself to be a very good listener and my constant goal is to provide dental treatment to my patients that are of the highest quality with results that are long term. I have been described as a perfectionist. The key is communication and I spend time with my patients, ascertaining their goals and concerns regarding dental care.
Dental technology is constantly developing and in order to keep up to date with the latest treatment methods I regularly attend continuing education courses and equipment expos, with special interest in long term restorative, aesthetic and implant dentistry.
I am a member of the:
- Australian Dental Association
- Australian Osseointegration Society
- Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity
- The Eastern Suburbs Dental Group
My patients can be reassured to know that I have a very dedicated team, of whom I am very proud. Each member has been chosen with your needs and comfort in mind. Please read on to learn more about the TLC Dental team.
