Meet Our Staff

Robyn, Dental Assistant

For Robyn, one of the most gratifying aspects of being a dental assistant is guiding people towards preventative dentistry, rather than emergency treatment. She also loves being a part of our team.

It’s wonderful to work with a team of ethical and caring people. We are all very relaxed, and we enjoy each other’s company.”
Robyn Walker

Education and Experience

Robyn, who has worked in the dental field since 2011, is a qualified dental assistant who has a Certificate III in Dental Assisting from RMIT. She loves to take on challenges and continually expands her knowledge and skill set.

Before working at Thornbury Family Dental, she had served as a practice manager and dental assistant at various dental clinics, where she had gained valuable experience in helping patients feel comfortable attending dental appointments.

She had also worked with Dr Oliver Liao for a few years at another clinic. “I had enjoyed working with him so much that I have followed him to Thornbury Family Dental.”

Both Dr Oliver Liao and Dr Alice Chen feel very lucky to have Robyn as a part of their wonderful team, and they are very grateful for her role in making their patients’ dental visits as easy and comfortable as possible!

Outside the Practice

When she’s not at work, Robyn enjoys serving as Secretary of Aspect Theatre Inc., a not-for-profit community theatre company in the South East suburbs. She’s a self-described “absolute musical theatre geek.”

She also loves animals and likes to binge-watch Netflix shows.

Racquel goes the extra mile to make sure apprehensive patients have a pleasant visit, and to help alleviate their fear of visiting a dentist. She finds her reward in seeing patients regain their confidence once they achieve the smile they’ve always wanted.

We’re proud to have Raquel as an important member of our practice team.

Education and Experience

Raquel holds her Certificate 3 in Dental Assisting and before joining Thornbury Family Dental she had worked as a beauty therapist. At our practice, she finds her work very fulfilling and encouraging – as she puts it:

I’ve gained a deeper understanding of all aspects of dentistry and continue to do so under the gentle guidance of Dr Oliver and Dr Alice.
