Melville Dental Care - Mrs Lily Brajanovic

As a dental practitioner, my focus is on providing dental treatment best suited to each individual patient.  My emphasis has always been on maintaining excellent oral hygiene as the corner stone to great dental health as well as restoring the function of the teeth by replacing defective or old restorations.

 I graduated in 1995 from the University of Melbourne with honours and was fortunate to have a great mentor while working in Shepparton, country Victoria.  I found the people extremely receptive and friendly.  Work was challenging and I was able to hone my skills over the next few years. 

 I have also spent 3 years abroad in New Zealand and the United Kingdom and gained an appreciation of the different facets of dentistry practiced.  However, I did grow homesick and really missed Melbourne’s diverse food and culture.  I believe this is what makes our city unique and a great place to live and call home.

 I was keen to build ties with the local community when I moved to nearby Brunswick many years ago and happily found this with Melville Dental Care.  In my opinion dentistry is not only about practicing excellent clinical work but also establishing rapport with patients to develop a trusting relationship.  Having a great support team to help in my practice is essential.


From my early years I have held a great interest in clinical dentistry and found immense joy from helping people and so registering with the Austarlian Dental Association in 1989 as an acrredited Dental Nurse,  was very natural path for me to take. 

 Over time I have collected extensive dental experience in various practices throught Melbourne, enabling me to become a reassuring presence to patients of all ages and walks of life.  And in turn, I developed an appreciation for the uniqueness of each person.

 I have been a part of Melville Dental Care for 20 years and have developed close bonds with many of our patients.  It’s been rewarding to have first seen many as children, growing into adults and now we are caring for their families too!  I am proud to work in an environment where patients are treated with great respect and valued rather than just a number.

 In more recent years working alongside Dr Thai, we have begun an exciting journey, evolving the practice to create a wonderfully relaxed environment both for the team and patients.  I believe dentistry is an art and Dr Thai strives with passion to perfect it , developing a practice that will care for patients for years to come.

 We’re here to create The Smile That Will Last The Mile!

I have known Dr Thai for several years now and it is my pleasure to be a part of his team and return back to working in the area I grew up in.  I look forward to getting to know all the ‘regular’ patients and welcoming new patients to the practice.

 Over the last 20 years, I have worked with many dental practices starting my career as a qualified dental nurse and progressing onto a diploma in practice management.  After so many years, I understand what kind of dental treatment and service patients want and deserve.  I also know that in reality, sound dentistry from a trustworthy team who take care, is what many people want.

 I believe that Dr Thai has the skill and the ability to provide quality dental treatment in a genuinely friendly and caring way.  He is professional yet able to make patients feel comfortable and welcome.

 Understanding the importance of good oral health and sharing this knowledge with patients, is my passion.  It’s my pleasure to sit with patients and discuss their concerns and explain treatment in a relaxed , unrushed atmosphere.  I have had years of training and education in the dental field and I’m able to share my experiences and dental knowledge with patients.  Patients  find it nice to know that when they call our practice, they are talking to someone who genuinely cares, can answer their questions and is absolutely happy to help.
