Dr Bethan Keir BDS (Wales)

In 2013 after 5 years working in the Welsh valleys, Bethan made the move to Australia with the idea of staying and exploring Sydney for a year before heading home. 6 years, an Aussie husband and baby later, Bethan is now about to become an Australian citizen and is building her dream home in Brisbane (with the help of her husband!) Bethan first moved to Sydney for 3 years where she lived near the beach, working in Bondi. She then spent 18 months in Townsville where she had a completely different (and much hotter) Australian experience, before deciding to settle in Brisbane. In her spare time Beth tries her best to stay fit, training at the gym and running. She also enjoys cooking, especially desserts! Bethan’s dental interests are very varied, but she especially enjoys treating nervous patients, trying to make everyone’s dental experience as comfortable as possible.
