Yi (Terri) Pu – Dentist

I studied at Saint Kentigern College from 2005, graduating in 2009. During my college years, I was a member and eventually the concert master of the Orchestra and Concert Band. I obtained my Associate Diploma in Violin Recital the same year I won the Saint Kentigern College Solo Music Competition and the Music Award in 2009.

I was admitted into The University of Queensland’s Bachelor of Dental Science where the leadership and artistic aspect of my college years helped me pursue my love for dentistry. During my university years, I was also the member and, for a brief period, the concert master of the Queensland Medical Orchestra. I volunteered for the Tzu Chi International Medical Association to help improve the oral health of the homeless and refugees. I was also the founder and president of the Taiwanese Dental Group in UQ during my study.

I graduated from the UQ Bachelor of Dental Science with Honours in 2015 and started working in private practice. I am currently the Principal Dentist in Australia Dental Burpengary and my main goal is to help promote and improve the oral health of people within the community.

My next life changing step is my recent admission into James Cook University’s Graduate Diploma of Dental Implantology in 2018. My ultimate goal is to contribute into the research of dental implantology while maintaining my life as a private practitioner.

My time in Saint Kentigern College was truly unforgettable. Without the help of my mentors, family and friends during those years, I would never have become who I am today.
