Meet Our Oakleigh Smiles Team
Dr Benjamin Zhang
Benjamin graduated from The University of Melbourne with a Doctor of Dental Surgery. He previously spent time working private practice in Perth, Western Australia before moving home to Melbourne.
He strongly believes that the key to a healthy mouth is through open communication and building long-lasting relationships between patient and dentist. He follows the minimal intervention approach to dentistry, focusing on prevention of issues before they arise, but does not shy away from any extractions that may be required.
Outside of dentistry, he enjoys working out at the gym, playing golf on weekends and travelling to all corners of the world.
Besides English, he is fluent Cantonese and Mandarin. He is available on Thursdays and alternate Saturdays.
Dr Michelle Van
BHSC. MDENT. (LATROBE)
Since completing her Bachelor of Health Sciences and Masters in Dentistry in 2013, Michelle has gained a wealth of experience from practising as a general dentist in several private practices across Melbourne.
Her experience has developed her passion for providing the best quality care to her patients. You will often see her engaging in lengthy conversations with her patients, talking with them to understand their goals, in order to provide comprehensive and tailored dental care.
She joins our team with a strong interest in restorative, children’s dentistry, aesthetic dentistry, as well as orthodontics (including early intervention orthodontics, Myobrace, fixed braces and Invisalign). She is a certified Invisalign provider and has completed training to provide treatment under relative analgesia (nitrous oxide).
Outside of work, Michelle enjoys being in the great outdoors and volunteering. Ask her about past dental volunteer trips to Vietnam!
Michelle speaks English and Vietnamese, and is JLPT N2 proficient in Japanese. She is available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and alternate Saturdays.

Frank graduated from The University of Melbourne with a Doctor of Dental Surgery.

Outside of dentistry, you will find Frank on the courts playing basketball or in the kitchen cooking up a feast.
Frank speaks English and Mandarin.
