Moira was originally a patient of Coorparoo Family Dental before beginning work at the practice as the receptionist in 1990. She has an uncanny memory for patients’ voices on the phone! Moira has two adult children and enjoys aqua aerobics, walking, going to the movies and spending time with her husband Malcolm.


Senior Dental Assistant

Leah is our senior dental assistant here at Coorparoo Family Dental. Despite having two degrees in Biomedical Science and Medical Laboratory Science, Leah has found she is very passionate about working in Dentistry. She finds that she is drawn to the interpersonal side of the field as interacting with people was something she was unable to do when working in labs. In Leah’s spare time she likes to eat Korean food (the spicier the better), hang out with her Husband Eli and take her van out for camping trips. She loves all dogs and would love to see your pet photos!

In her year and a half off, she worked in Central Queensland on a farm stay taking backpackers horse riding and on farm tours. Her interests include her two horses, two dogs, ménage of chickens, endurance horse-riding and slashing her 20acres.
