Dr Irene Tan, BDSc (WA)
Dr Tan grew up in Melbourne and earned her BDSc in Western Australia. She started at Wright Street Dental Clinic in 2011, and she purchased the practice in 2014, becoming the principal dentist.
After having a passion to get into health care and dentistry, I followed the path to become a dentist.
I've always had a vision of a family-oriented practice that provides a compassionate, caring environment. I felt I had obtained that when I purchased the practice in 2014.
Unfortunately, in 2016 I fell ill, but after extensive rehabilitation, support from my family, friends and my dental family, I'm doing extremely well and consistently improving. I have an active role in running the practice, and I enjoy spending time with my staff and patients.
When Dr Tan is away from the clinic, you can sometimes find her getting creative in the kitchen, cooking for family and friends. She also enjoys catch-ups over coffee or a little quiet time while gardening.
