Developing long-term relationships with our patients and their families brings a lot of joy to the team at North Brisbane Dental Clinic. We treat our patients as we treat each other – with compassion and respect. Our job is not easy, but we take pride in doing it well. We take dentistry seriously but also enjoy having a bit of fun and conversation with our patients so that you enjoy the time you spend with us.
Dr Georgia Sheahan, BDSc, AMusA
A dedicated mother, an accomplished pianist, and an even better dentist, Georgia has been endowed with the two most important gifts a dentist can have; an ability to put people at ease, and a love of precision.
Having worked for many years for a select group of private practices who did things differently to the way she would like to have done them, Georgia decided to do it her way. This did not surprise her family!
So, in 2009 Georgia established a private practice in Windsor, in a big brown building. Then, in 2016 when she could no longer bare the baby poo colour of her digs, she decided to find premises that better suited her style. And so, North Brisbane Dental Clinic was born.
In amongst all of this, being a perfectionist, Georgia has also travelled to the ends of the earth to learn from the best. She has completed continuing education courses in many fields but has a particular interest in paediatric dentistry and orthodontics.

Dr Brodie Hawker (nee Hill), BOralH DSc, GDipDent
Dr Brodie Hill graduated from Griffith University in 2012, and joined the team at North Brisbane Dental Clinic after spending five years working in private practice in Melbourne.
After sipping more coffees than her synapses could handle and finding her wardrobe had more black in it than an undertakers laundry basket, she decided enough was enough and she returned home to sunny Queensland, right into the lucky hands of North Brisbane Dental Clinic.
Since graduating, Brodie has completed hundreds of hours of professional development in Australia and abroad, to ensure she is providing her patients with the most up-to-date, evidence- based treatment available. Most of this continuing education has been done in the fields of orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry.
Brodie loves to get to know her patients (beyond just their teeth), and with the help of her dedicated assistants, aims to make each dental visit as pleasant as possible.
Dr Louise McCallum, BDS
Given Louise spends a large portion of her spare time clinging to the sides of mountains, and running for kilometres on end for no particular reason, we are glad she took the time to seek us out, and then join our team at North Brisbane Dental Clinic.
Louise likes things to be exact, as you would hope, given her life probably depends on it when she is hanging from a cliff top. This is not only a good thing for her, because she will probably live longer, but it is also a great thing for her patients, who will get the benefits of her desire for precision.
Louise used to be a Nurse, so you are in good hands if you need your vitals taken or a stern talking to for not resting when you’re told. Once Louise decided to be a dentist she went back to University, won every academic prize under the sun and then settled in nicely with a practice on the Southside of Brisbane. But having grown up in North Queensland, her inner magnet drew her towards the north pole and luckily, straight to us at North Brisbane Dental Clinic.See Complete Bio
Dr Andrew Liaw, BDS (Hons)
After completing his undergraduate degree at James Cook University in Cairns, Andrew decided to escape the humidity and relocate across the country to frosty Tasmania, working in both public and private practice. Since finishing his dental studies, he decided that five long years of university clearly wasn't enough, completing a two-year research degree. He has now returned back to our Sunny state to undertake a further 3 years of specialist training in gum disease and implants at the University of QLD. He is also actively involved in teaching and clinical supervision of undergraduate dental students at JCU and UQ.
Andrew is a strong advocate for providing the highest levels of patient service and practices all aspects of general dentistry. He has special interests in addressing periodontal and implant concerns, and maintaining healthy gums and a healthy smile for life. In his downtime, he enjoys travelling, exploring the outdoors, swimming and keeping fit.See Complete Bio
Dr Sabrina Akl, BDS
After completing her Bachelor of Dental Surgery at James Cook University in Cairns, Sabrina returned home for work, to be with her family and friends. She understands that visiting the dentist can make you feel anxious, and that's why Sabrina approaches every patient in a calm, caring and conscious manner to ensure that you walk out with a smile on your face. She values the importance of patient comfort and enjoys educating patients on their conditions and treatment options, so you can feel confident in making the most suitable decisions for your mouth.
Sabrina is also passionate about the link between oral health and general health and is currently conducting an Honours research project on this topic. She loves refining her skills and is always keen for the latest dental course! When Sabrina's not gowned up, she enjoys finding new coffee spots, visiting galleries, keeping active and travelling…when available.See Complete Bio
Dr Kirstie Malley, BDS
Dr Kirstie joins us from a not so sunny Scotland! When not highland dancing in her kilt, her passion is to create beautiful, natural smiles. Devoted to developing great relationships with her patients, she works hard to ensure they feel relaxed and confident in her care.
Committed to high quality dentistry, Kirstie went back to the books and gained her Post Graduate MJDF Diploma from the Royal College of Surgeons. In her years as a Dentist in Glasgow, she enjoyed using her skills in Conscious Sedation to help patients overcome their fears. Her other area of interest is natural enhancements. Holding a qualification in Facial Aesthetics, she loves helping patients look and feel their best!
Enthusiastic about dentistry and her own professional development, back in the UK, she worked as a tutor for FGDP Scotland, where she mentored other dentists.
Besides all things teeth, Kirstie is a dab hand with a paintbrush. When not pretending she’s Van Gogh, you’ll find her zipping around Brisbane on her bike looking for great coffee spots and patisseries.

Dr Seerat Sawhney, BDS
Being a part of the NBDC family since 2018, Seerat is the first of our recruited dental students who has returned to us after completing her Bachelor of Dental Science at The University of Queensland. She knows how we operate and understands that dentistry is not just about teeth, but about looking after our patients.
We couldn't be happier to have Seerat’s caring and calm personality radiating again around our clinic and now towards her patients as well! She highly values the importance of patient comfort and is dedicated to ensuring you feel at ease. She aims to explain the details in an easy-to-understand manner, so her patients can feel confident in making decisions.
Seerat has been part of our team for more than three years now, so we have had plenty of time to assess whether she is going to provide the sort of our care to our patients that we pride ourselves on. We are happy to say that Seerat personifies our motto; she has an exact hand and a kind heart, and we are lucky to have her.
In any spare time that she’s not here, we can tell you for sure that Seerat will be out and about discovering new places or trying out ...See Complete Bio
