Meet our Team

Everyone at Diamond Dental Care shares a passion to ensure that both the care we provide and the way in which we deliver it, are always of the very highest standards. Our team is experienced and friendly, and most of us have been at the practice for several years!

We take our clinical responsibilities very seriously - our Sunshine Coast dentists and hygienists are all registered with AHPRA Health Professions Regulation Body and regularly attend professional training to ensure that their practice reflects all the latest developments.

Dr Doug Leishman, Principal dentist

Dr Doug Leishman, Principal dentist

Doug was born in Perth, Scotland, and moved to Australia in 2001. He has worked as a dentist since qualifying from the University of Dundee in 1988 and enjoys updating his skills and knowledge through professional training courses (completing two post graduate dental qualifications, including orthodontics.)

In 2008 Doug and Vicky set up Diamond Dental Care to offer high quality dentistry with exceptional customer care.  They relocated from Hervey Bay where Doug had worked both in private practice and in the surgical public dental service in Hervey Bay and Maryborough.

Doug enjoys various outdoors activities including cycling and kayaking, but mostly Doug and his wife Vicky are kept busy by their young kids - Jack and Amy.

Dr Tarek Abdel-Naby, Dentist

Tarek joined Diamond Dental Care in 2013 and brings not only compassion, but also considerable expertise in surgical dentistry.

Graduating from Alexandria University in Egypt in 1997, Tarek went on to obtain his American dental qualification in 2002.  He then pursued his passion for oral and maxillofacial surgery and spent the next 8 years as an SHO Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon in hospitals in the UK. There he completed a Fellowship in Dental Surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons and a Certificate in Implantology. In 2012 Tarek completed his Australian dental exams and relocated to Brisbane with his Australian wife Alana who is also a dentist! Tarek and Alana now live on the Sunshine Coast with their young son Ahmad.

Mrs Lise Slack, Hygienist

Lise graduated from the University of Stellenbosch (Cape Town) in 1982 where her father was a Professor of Dentistry. After living for several years in England, she moved to Australia with her family in 2003.

Lise is a uniquely special dental hygienist!  She brings many years of experience working in specialist Periodontal and Orthodontic practices, and her passion is teaching patients how to care for their teeth. As a result she has invented, manufactured and marketed worldwide a unique line of dental care products: X-floss, X-floss Lite and X-Ribbon.

Lise has lectured at international conferences in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Ireland and Lebanon, and is on first name terms with many of the world leaders in the specialities of Periodontal and Implant treatment.

As if that doesn't keep her busy enough, a second passion is helping orphaned street children - Lise's charity i-Hope has now built its first children's home in Myanmar (Burma).
