Geelong & Colac Orthodontics: Geelong
Dr Amanda Leen completed her dental degree at The University of Melbourne and spent 5 years as a dental office in the Australian Army before returning to study orthodontics full time for 3 years at the University of Melbourne.
After earning her doctorate in 2013 and registering as a specialist orthodontist, Amanda commenced private practice in Geelong in a group environment. Amanda also joined the orthodontic department at The Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne and where she continues to treat complex cases, often in conjunction with surgeons and other dental specialists.
Amanda’s interests in orthodontics are digital orthodontics (particularly Invisalign clear aligners) and working on multi-disciplinary cases.
This led Amanda to start practice in Ballarat using only clear aligners in the rooms of Midwestern Dental Specialists.
