Dr Chai graduated from the University of Otago with BDS(Hons) in 2001. Shortly after graduation, he was one of 3 new graduates to be accepted into a DHSV internship program.
Through the dentist internship program, Dr Chai was able to gain invaluable experience in treating thousands of patients in the public health system. This included general dentistry, emergency dental care, trauma, oral surgery and orthodontics.
While this provided valuable training, Dr Chai decided his career was in general private practice and joined the dentist practice of Dr Chris Billings in Morwell . At the beginning of 2008, he took over as practice principal. The practice has since relocated and now our new and improved, state-of-the art dental facility, situated at 16 Seymour Street in the heart of Traralgon CBD. The practice is now providing dental care for patients from Traralgon, Morwell, Moe, Churchill, Rosedale, Glengarry, Sale, Yinnar South, Newborough and surrounding areas.
Dr Chai has participated in hundreds of hours of Continuing Dental Education since graduation. Dr Chai has also been granted visiting rights to perform dental procedures under General Anaesthesia at Maryvale Private Hospital, is trained to provide dental treatment under Relative Analgesia (Happy Gas), orthodontics and dental implant treatment.
Mrs Corinna Carpenter (owner of Pride Dental Care – Moe Denture Clinic) graduated from RMIT Advanced Dental Technician Course in 2008.
Mrs Carpenter has worked closely together with Dr Chai over the last 10 years managing from simple to complex cases. Mrs Carpenter has gained excellent reputation in the community as being friendly and caring.
Mrs Carpenter has a keen special interest in removable full and partial dentures, sports mouthguards, implant supported prostheses and orthodontic removable prostheses.
Mrs Carpenter also kept up with the latest in dental lab technology by participating in multiple dental conventions and lectures and continuing education courses.
