Dr Daniel Hu
Dr Daniel Hu was born and raised in Brisbane. Dr Daniel grew up on the south side of Brisbane and attended Brisbane State High School. Following that, he lived on the Gold Coast for 5 years whilst completing his degree in Dentistry at Griffith University Gold Coast Campus. He has a gentle and conservative approach, always putting his patients first and looks after their needs. His calming nature means he is able to help nervous and anxious patients out by putting them at ease. On top of general dentistry and dental needs, he has special interest in Orthodontics and Dental Implants.
Daniel is fluent in Mandarin and Japanese and is laser accredited.
Outside of the surgery, he is also a Group Fitness Instructor teaching Group Fitness Classes at various gyms. Perhaps you'll catch him at the gym in one of his classes! He also supervises dental students at the Griffith University Dental Clinic on the Gold Coast once a week. This is his way of giving back.
In his spare time, he enjoys reading, playing computer games, and spending quality time with his two corgis. Who wouldn't like to spend time with fluffy furry corgis with short legs right?
Dr Rui Gao
Rui (Ree) has wanted to be a dentist for as long as she remembers. In 2006 she graduated as a dentist at the University of Queensland. With over 10 years of experience, Rui is a caring, dedicated and compassionate dentist. She doesn’t believe anything is complicated; there is always a simple solution.
Rui enjoys all aspects of dentistry, particularly restorative and cosmetic dentistry. With the knowledge that poor oral health can affect a person’s general health, preventative dentistry is an integral part of her practice; we all know the old saying ‘prevention is better than cure’.
Having a husband that snores and 2 young children, Rui’s goal for the future is furthering her education on sleep medicine and children’s dentistry and airway health. She is currently working on obtaining her LA&HA Masters in Laser Dentistry.
When she is not a dentist, Rui is running around after her 3 year old son and 1 year old daughter. Being a mother is definitely harder than a being a dentist.
Rui speaks Mandarin and is laser accredited.
Dr Ann Schindel
Ann qualified as a dentist from University College Cork in Ireland in 1997. From there, she gained valuable experience working in private practice in the UK for ten years.
After marrying her Australian husband, she moved to Brisbane in 2008.
Since then, Ann has worked in a private practice in Wynnum, enjoying getting to know her patients and helping them feel more comfortable with dental treatments.
She strongly believes in treating her patients as she would like to be treated. Ann is very thorough and likes to spend time explaining treatment options to her patients so that they can make informed choices on their oral health.
Outside of work, Ann likes spending time with her husband and two daughters. She enjoys taking walks and baking (Her girls are her taste testers!)
Ann is delighted to join Rui, Garry and the team at Brisbane General and Laser Dentists.
Dr Garry Johnson
Dr Garry Johnson recently retired in May to focus on his many hobbies and spend more time with his wife Maureen and grandchildren. He will forever be part of the Brisbane General & Laser Dentists Family.
Stacey recently re-joined the team in June, after spending many years working as a flight attendant with Qantas. Stacey is a hard working dedicated member of the team. Stacey is not only a caring yet efficient dental assistant, she is also responsible for managing the clinical side of the practice. Outside of work Stacey still loves to fly, only now she travels for herself and not because she’s working.

Late last year Stephanie moved from Sydney across the state borders to join her partner in Brisbane.
