Meet Our Team

Dr John Hanna. Vermont South Dentist

Dr. John Hanna


Dr. John Hanna graduated with a Masters of Dentistry from La Trobe University, Bendigo, where he was awarded the Highest Achieving individual from his cohort. Dr. Hanna is a genuine believer in that ‘the pursuit of knowledge is never-ending and the day you stop seeking knowledge is the day you stop growing.’ As such, he is committed to enhancing his skills on a daily basis to guarantee his valued patients are receiving the most professional and up to date care. 

Dr. Hanna also practices dentistry with the notion of ‘treating others how you would like to be treated’ and as such it’s more than just dentistry for Dr. Hanna.  He takes immense pride and solid commitment in getting to know his patients on a personal level and goes above and beyond to build and gain that trust, to ensure his caring for their overall wellbeing.

Our valued patients constantly comment on how they respect and appreciate Dr. Hanna’s humble, humorous and friendly personality, and his ability to keep them comfortable, trusting, and safe is what keeps them coming back. Dr. Hanna prides himself on being a good listener and displaying genuine interest in his patients’ concerns so he can support them to find a personal solution. As a nervous patient himself, Dr. Hanna is very compassionate and empathetic towards his patients and his gentle and patient nature allows them to gain that control again.

Dr. Hanna cares for a diverse clientele and understands that no two individuals are the same. Therefore, he works closely with his patients to understand their needs and expectations and in turn customise a treatment plan that meets their requests. Dr. Hanna is well skilled in all aspects of dentistry including Preventative, Minimally-Invasive Dentistry, Implantology, Root Canal, Veneer, Crown-Bridge work, and Extractions. However, Patient Education is what Dr. Hanna portrays as being most important, as that will empower patients with the skills needed to maintain healthy teeth for life.

‘Behind every great man is a great woman’ and Dr. Hanna is happily married to his beautiful other half Mariam who he loves dearly. Dr. Hanna enjoys keeping fit and participates in a wide variety of sports, particularly soccer and tennis in his spare time, and loves the AFL and NBA.

Dr. Vincent Aw


Dr Vincent graduated with a Masters of Dentistry from La Trobe University. Following this, Dr Vincent started working in Sydney before returning home to Melbourne.
Vincent believes that dentistry, just like life in general, is an ongoing learning process. For that reason, he is always finding different avenues to continue learning and enhancing his skills so that he can translate that into quality treatment for his patients.

Dr Vincent understands that every individual is different and has their own personal needs. He strives to understand his patients needs and provides his services based on that. In addition, growing up as a child with dental anxiety does help him empathise with patients who might share the same anxiety, and definitely motivates him to help make the patient experience a positive one.

Vincent loves all aspects of dentistry, and is well trained in providing treatments including Preventative and Restorative Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry, Crown and Bridge work, Root Canal Treatment, and Extractions. His passion for dentistry means that Dr Vincent is often attending courses to improve his skills as a dentist. He has been accepted as a Fellow of the International College of Continuing Dental Education (FICCDE), and as a Fellow of the International Academy of Dental Facial Esthetics (IADFE).

Outside of dentistry, Dr Vincent’s main priority will be his family and he tries to spend as much time with them as possible. Dr Vincent loves his food and enjoys trying new restaurants and cuisines. On top of that, he also loves basketball and the NBA. In fact, his participation in basketball and the occasional gym sessions are probably the few things that keep him guilt-free from trying more food.

Dr Kenneth Li


Dr Kenneth Li (Ken) earned his Masters of Dentistry from La Trobe university, based in Bendigo, Victoria.

With a gentle and caring chairside manner, Dr Ken is committed to providing you high quality dentistry in a stress-free environment.

To make sure he provides the optimal treatment for you, Dr Ken is always looking out for the next continuing education course so he can stay up to date with the latest advancements in dentistry.
