Dr. Amanda Leen

Amanda grew up in Geelong and enjoyed her time at Sacred Heart College, before moving to Melbourne for dental school. In 2005 she graduated from Melbourne Dental School BDSc (Hons).

After dental school, Amanda spent 5 years as a uniformed Army dental officer, with postings to Darwin, Sydney and Canberra. Along the way she met and married Luke.

Whilst Amanda enjoyed aspects of general dentistry and the variety of being in the Army, it was time for a new challenge. So Amanda was very happy to be accepted into postgraduate orthodontic study in Melbourne, back closer to family and friends. She graduated with a Doctor of Clinical Dentistry (specialist qualification) in 2013. After moving many times around for study and with the Army, she decided to return to Geelong and joined Geelong Orthodontics in 2013.

You might see Amanda out running around the river or at the gym, but she also enjoys time at home with Winston (the very naughty Burmese cat).

“I love orthodontics because I can really get to know my patients and their families over the course of treatment, and seeing their smiles develop is very rewarding. The collegial nature of the profession is also highly enjoyable.”
