The team at Sydney Laser Dental Care
Dr. Lawrence Lau is the principal of Sydney Laser Dental Care.
Before entering dentistry, Dr Lawrence attended boarding school at St Joseph’s College, Hunter’s Hill. In 1997, he graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery, with Honours.
Since graduation, Dr Lawrence has spent extensive time on continuing education, to keep his dental practice at the forefront of dental technology. This includes the use of CEREC technology, to optimise the outcomes of his cosmetic and restorative procedures, laser dentistry, guided implant surgery, and a range of orthodontic treatments. His enthusiasm in expanding his knowledge comes from understanding the fact that dentistry is a relentlessly evolving practice.
Dr Lawrence is always eager to contribute to the dental scholarship of his colleagues, and has given several lectures on CEREC, laser, and guided implant surgery.
Outside of dentistry, Lawrence is chasing around his three adorable (sometimes) children. He also lets off steam by working out in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
Dr. Gloria Shih is a principle dentist at Sydney Laser Dental Care
Dr Gloria grew up in the north shore, and attended Killara High school. She graduated in 1997 from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery.
After only a year of employment in a private practice, Dr Gloria teamed up with her husband, Lawrence, and opened their first Sydney Laser Dental branch in Sylvania Waters. Their successful partnership resulted in the quick expansion of their dental practice to Pyrmont, and Illawong.
Dr Gloria’s dedication to her practice in dentistry, and continuing education, means that she strives to achieve the most effective, yet efficient, treatment possible for her patients. Her aim is to improve your prognosis, whilst minimising your time in the chair, thus ensuring your dental visit is a pleasant, and mutually rewarding, one.
Dr. Gloria’s areas of speciality and interest include restorative and cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening, and laser dentistry.
When Gloria is not busy running three practices, she is a devoted mother of three, and enjoys spending time with her children. Her appreciation of good food means that her knowledge of good restaurants is as extensive as her knowledge in dentistry.

Dr Jenna enjoys all aspects of dentistry and has a particular interest in preventative, restorative, cosmetic and paediatric dentistry. She is committed to continuing education and is expanding her knowledge to laser training and a two year orthodontic mini-residency currently in her areas of further development.
