Our Team

Our dentists, Dr Craig Jones and Dr Rebecca Lui, graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1989. They then completed more advanced dental training by obtaining a Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry from the same university in 1996. They continue to be active participants of ongoing professional development by regularly attending conferences and seminars to keep their skills and knowledge up-to-date.

Dr Craig Jones started his dental career by being presented with the university's award for Excellence in Clinical Dentistry. He then spent the next 8 years working with the Royal Australian Navy, which took him to Cerberus, Sydney, Canberra and several overseas deployments. He retired from the Navy in 1997 as a Lieutenant Commander and has been working at the Patterson Lakes Dental Group since. Craig enjoys practising all areas of dentistry. He takes pride in the quality of his work and in providing dental care in a gentle way. Assisting nervous patients to achieve their dental goals is the part of dentistry that he most enjoys. Sports take up most of his leisure time as he is a keen golfer and table tennis player.

Dr Rebecca Lui spent the first few years of her career working in community dental health as well as in private practice. She started the Patterson Lakes Dental Group in 1996. Experienced in both public and private dentistry, Rebecca has taken the best practice philosophies from both and incorporated them into her practice. Rebecca finds the human aspect of dentistry the most satisfying. She is always gentle and compassionate towards everyone who comes through her door. Outside dentistry, Rebecca enjoys running, training at the gym and listening to music. She takes a special interest in women's issues and does regular volunteer work in this area.

Ms Kayleen Chandler is the senior dental assistant and practice manager. Kayleen has been with our practice for well over 10 years and has worked in dentistry for much longer. Not only is she a familiar face to our regular patients, she has become an indispensible part of Patterson Lakes Dental Group. When she is not at work, Kayleen enjoys being out and about and living life to the fullest.

Ms Jennyne Stafford works at the practice two days a week, doing both reception and clinical duties. She is a dental assistant with over 15 years of experience. Her passion is cooking, especially with fresh produce from her garden. She is a regular supplier of beautiful home-made cakes for work morning tea.

Ms Francis Lenard divides her working week between her city practice and our practice. Although her main role with us is dental nursing, she is very experienced in areas relating to reception and administration. Outside of dentistry, Francis enjoys overseas travelling and is constantly on the lookout for good travel deals!

Ms Rebecca Wallace is the youngest member of our team and her main role at our practice is dental nursing. She finished her dental training two years ago and has been working in private practice since. She is a very sociable person with wide ranging interests from motorbikes to make-up and fashion. 

Ms Amber Skinner joined our practice in early 2014 after having taken leave from dental nursing to start her family. She is a very valuable member of our team both inside the surgery and at the front desk. Most of her non-dental life is devoted to her young children. She also enjoys keeping fit at the gym.
