Dr-Sergei-antipenko-x150.jpgDr Joo Leem


After completing a Biomedical Science degree at the University of Auckland, Joo realised that actually dentistry was her calling and graduated with her Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Otago. 

Prior to starting at Lumino, Joo worked at Wellington Hospital for two years, then moved to sunny Hawke's Bay to take on a role as a Dental/Maxillofacial house surgeon where she provided treatment for medically complex patients and trauma patients. 

Joo is interested in minimal intervention dentistry, where focus is on a preventive approach.  Her main goals include working together with her patients to achieve optimum dental health and she enjoys seeing the improvements in her patient's oral health as they work together. 

Outside of the practice, Joo has a variety of hobbies including learning Spanish, pottery, drawing, snowboarding and working out at the gym. She thoroughly enjoyed her time in Hawke's Bay but is very excited to return to Wellington and all it has to offer!
