Our Team

Greater than the sum of our Australian & Irish parts

Dr Steve Tangney

Steve moved from his native Ireland to Australia in 2011. After 6 years in Queensland, where he met his lovely wife, Chloe, they decided to take the plunge into ownership and set up in Batemans Bay in late 2017. Chloe and Steve have a beautiful girl, Orla, and a brand new baby boy, James, and are relishing being so close to Chloe's family after living in South East Queensland.

Steve has played soccer semi professionally in Australia and now togs out for Broulee, captaining them to a grand final victory in 2019. He can be found bush walking, snorkelling, golfing, changing nappies, walking Frankie and cooking beef & guinness pies.

Steve qualified in 2008 with honours from UCC, Ireland. He landed a job at Parrock Street Dental Care, where he practised for 3 years, earning a Cert in Aesthetic Dentistry in 2011 during his residency in London. He was recommended for the UK Young Dentist of the Year Award in 2010. He has considerable experience in digital dentistry. Steve has lectured in Ireland, and more recently for the Australian Graduate of the Year Residency which takes a small cohort of the best Australian graduates and hones their skills and knowledge for private practice through their 4 day mini residency program.


When the expansion of our Batemans Bay clinic is completed in 12 months (although the fires and now COVID-19 have delayed this somewhat), the practice will be fully digital, have a cerec primescan & primemill and have 3 more treatment rooms. If you are an associate dentist or Hygienist/OHT who would like to join our growing, fun practice, there will be great long term positions available in the near future. An option exists to join the practice as another principal dentist. 

Dr Eoin Lehane

Eoin? Is the Irish version of the english name Owen - same pronunciation! 

Eoin prides himself on delivering dental care of the highest quality for his patients in a gentle and caring manner. An Irish native, he qualified with honours from the University College of Cork in 2008. At this time he moved to London where he worked in private practice for the next 10 years. He built a reputation as a kind, caring dentist who is passionate about his work and always puts the needs of his patients first.


During his time in London he continued to educate himself, obtaining Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2011 and more recently completing a four year postgraduate course in Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics at King’s College London, graduating in 2018. Following this he left the UK and settled in Australia with his wife Kami who grew up in Adelaide.

Through a mix of clinical experience and education Eoin is confident in providing a wide range of restorative and cosmetic treatments of the highest quality as well as general care for the entire family. His special interests lie in indirect restorative techniques including crown, bridge and veneer work to restore both function and aesthetics as well as direct tooth coloured composite fillings and dentures.

In his spare time Eoin enjoys running, hiking, playing football, watching rugby and telling his groodle puppy Zoey what a good girl she is. He enjoys travelling with Kami and experiencing new cultures, foods and lifestyles.

Anna-Liisa Donnelley

Anna-liisa was born and raised in the Riverina area of Wagga Wagga. In 2007 Anna-liisa moved to Sydney and began her career as a dental assistant. During this time she developed a passion for all things teeth related and decided to take her career to the next level, returning to Wagga and completing a Bachelor of Oral Health at Charles Sturt University, graduating 2017.

Anna-liisa is especially interested in prevention of gum disease, tooth decay and giving children a positive dental experience from a young age. She loves educating and passing on her knowledge to her patients so they can take great care of their mouths from home so dental aches and pains can be prevented.


After many years spent holidaying on the South Coast Anna-liisa decided it was too beautiful to leave

and relocated to Batemans Bay in August 2018 and she makes the most of the beaches every spare

moment she gets.

Anna-liisa loves exploring outdoors and can be found chasing her 2 children and their dogs, Pudding

and Alice on the beach in her spare time. She also enjoys Surfing, Skateboarding and Snowboarding with

her family and friends.
