Meet Our Dentists

Dr Elizabeth Ladyjenski

Practice Owner

I graduated from University of Melbourne, Dental School in 2005. During my time at various dental practices, I have noticed a trend towards fast paced dentistry, with minimal patient care. My vision for Corio Central Dental is to welcome patients with kindness, compassion and take the time to really get to know each individual and attend to their needs. My practice is limited to removal of wisdom teeth and minor oral surgery. I have an adorable dog and a gorgeous cat. I am a big lover of animals and live + breathe a vegan lifestyle.

Dr Tingy Li


I graduated from Dental School, at the University of Melbourne. I grew up in Grovedale and recently relocated back to Geelong. I have been at Corio Central Dental since our grand opening, and love being part of the team! My favourite aspect of dentistry is probably to do with cosmetics and helping patients find their smile. Outside of work, I enjoy sewing, photography, and have also taken up dancing and circus arts. I also love spending time with my little ginger and white cat at home!

Sharifa Tartoussi

Dr Sharifa Tartoussi


I graduated from Melbourne Dental School and have since worked in both rural and regional practice. I grew up in the northern suburbs of Melbourne and have recently returned there. My favourite aspect of dentistry is working with the patient to find a solution to the concern that they came in with, to see them walk out feeling comfortable and satisfied. Outside of work, I enjoy film photography, spoken word poetry and have recently started taking singing lessons. I also love spending low-key evenings with my family watching a good film with some pop corn.
