Dr Richard ChoiDr Richard Choi


Richard grew up in the North Shore and attended Westlake Boys before moving to Australia and graduating from James Cook University with a BDS in 2014.

He gained valuable experience working in remote parts of Australia, with a focus on rural and indigenous health, followed by a period working in a private practice in metro Brisbane. After those several years in Australia, he made the decision to return home and join the Lumino Team.

Richard enjoys all aspects of dentistry, with particular interests in wisdom teeth extractions and aesthetic restorations. He is fascinated with the latest dental technology and techniques and has undertaken numerous continuing education courses including a 2 year post graduate mini-residency course in orthodontics.

He is passionate about fitness and nutrition, as well as helping his patients understand the many links between oral health and systemic health.

Outside of dentistry, Richard enjoys exercising, playing the guitar and travelling the world. One of his most memorable trips was a dental humanitarian trip to Cambodia, working for a non-profit organisation providing free dental services in orphanages and schools in provincial areas.
