Meet Our Dentists
Dr Elizabeth Ladyjenski
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!
Dr Tatiana Pashkova
I graduated from Melbourne University Dental School over 10 years ago, as an international student. Early in my career, I developed a passion in the field of dental implants and moved overseas to study implantology at New York University. I also have taught at Melbourne University Dental School, as a casual clinical supervisor. I have one beautiful daughter, no pets and live in Melbourne. I love baking cakes and gardening.
