Biography:

Dr Alex Negoescu is LifeCare Dental’s Principal Dentist 

and graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1980 from the University of Sydney. 

Prior to this, he completed a Bachelor of Arts from the University of New South Wales. During his university years, Alex trained as a lieutenant in the Army Reserve (infantry) and spent all of his holidays and spare time on army camps. After graduating as a dentist, Alex relocated to Port Headland, where he worked for five years and met and married his wife Kate. Alex and Kate have two grown children – Loulou who is studying physiotherapy and John who is completing a Master’s degree in strength and conditioning.

Alex founded LifeCare Dental in 1989 and now has over 34 years of experience practicing dentistry. He has grown his practice by one dentist a year for 25 years and places a strong emphasis on continuing education within LifeCare. His focus is on his dentists having the highest standard of evidence based dentistry and in addition to mandatory Continual Professional Development points, all LifeCare dentists are required to keep up their studies. Not only does Alex operate as LifeCare’s Principal Dentist, but he also mentors dental graduates, passing on his wealth of experience to young dentists.

In 1998 Alex was involved in one of the two yearly Australian Dental Association conferences where four of his dentists conducted a live implant demonstration on stage. He has presented at a Dental Corporation Australia conference on building a successful practice and is a member of the Australian Dental Society, Prosthodontic Society, Periodontics Society, Endodontics Society and Osseo-integration Society.

Dr Joanne Berry

Job Title:
  Associate Dentist
Biography:

Dr Joanne Berry attended Perth College Anglican School for Girls and has worked at LifeCare Dental since 2000.

Originally Joanne thought she would become a forensic scientist and studied broad based science at the University of Western Australia, majoring in Microbiology and Anatomy and Human Biology. She then went on to complete her honours researching the role of a death gene in breast cancer before realising that her passion lay within dentistry.

Joanne wanted to be sure that another five years of study would land her in her dream job so she began her career at LifeCare as a Dental Nurse and continued in this role until she qualified as a Dentist in 2007. Joanne believes that dentistry is a creative mixture of art and science and the stimulation of not knowing how her day will progress or who she will meet is what she loves about her job.

When Joanne isn’t working she is usually travelling, be it for enjoyment, to experience other cultures or to attend a dental conference of some sort. She loves to eat and although she doesn’t rate herself as much of a cook she does enjoy going out for a nice meal and wine. Fitness is an integral part of Joanne’s work/life balance and her love of food necessitates her gym habit. She likes to run along the river and beach and enjoys a good fitness class at the gym, but most of all loves to go horse-riding.
