Principal Dentist

Dr Amit Kapoor is the principal dentist at and owner of Great Alpine Dental.

Graduating in 2002, he worked as a dentist in India for 7 years before relocating to Australia. Before his involvement in Great Alpine Dental, he was practising dentistry in Cairns, and Melbourne in the public and private sector. He also taught at The University of Melbourne.

Dr Amit enjoys the challenge posed by complex full mouth dentistry and he loves helping people with difficult oral conditions who achieve great smiles and stable oral health. Therefore, his post graduate education focus has been on learning complex dentistry, learning different disciplines within dentistry to offer a multidisciplinary approach to resolving complex dental issues. This also helps him offer his patients solutions which otherwise might not be offered..

Dr Amit is currently pursuing a Post Graduate Diploma in Implants from Europe, he has 5 years of experience in dental implants, from single teeth implants to full mouth implants, all on 4.

He is also pursuing Post Graduate Diploma in Digital Orthodontics to be able to combine this art of moving teeth within complex cases with the goal of achieving a more stable end result or sometimes simplifying a complex situation.

He has also completed the DSD residency by Dr Christian Coachman and is on track to become a DSD Master and making his practice into a DSD Clinic which ensures he has international support , end to end digitization and predictable results when helping his patients achieve a great new smile that lasts.

This has already helped a lot of people in our community to avoid travelling to Melbourne who have complex dental needs and have their dental health taken care of locally.

His belief in state of the art healthcare has motivated him to reinvest heavily in modern technology at Great Alpine Dental from lasers and microscope to CAD/CAM dentistry

Lisa Venola - Practice Manager at Great Alpine Dental

Lisa Venola

Practice Manager

Lisa has witnessed many changes to the dental industry since starting her dental career in 2003 after completing Certificate III & IV in Dental Assisting. She took all this knowledge and joined Great Alpine Dental in 2017. 

I love meeting all the different kinds of people and building a professional relationship with them. Seeing them walk through the door with dental issues and then leaving with a confident happy smile.

Lisa loves working with all the different types of people that we get in the clinic. She also loves building a relationship with new patients that then become regulars. Lisa finds her job very rewarding when patients come in with issues and then walk out with a very confident smile after they have finished their treatment.

Lisa’s pre-dental life was quite a different world yet similarly specific – instead of teeth, she focused on everything horses, working with eventing horses, racehorses, polo ponies and even within the breeding industry. While that work is behind her now, she still loves horses and has her own that she takes out for a ride around beautiful national parks in our area. If Lisa isn’t doing that in her spare time, she’s nourishing her veggie patch or keeping fit in our wonderful region.

She loves hearing the stories from our patients’ hometown and their appreciation for the alpine region – and can relate, as she absolutely adores the alpine valley and the surrounding nature. Chelsea’s favourite part about her job is how rewarding it is to see patients’ confidence and smiling after they have had a full restoration of their smile. She loves the challenges work brings to her everyday and always has a goal to work towards. Chelsea loves to have a meaningful chat with the patients also while having a laugh.

Outside of dental work, Chelsea loves artistic activities, exercising and socialising with the people she cares about.
