Dr Meral Layik

Dr Meral Layik is a warm and gentle dentist who enjoys family dentistry. She has over 20 years’ experience in dentistry and has vast knowledge in cosmetic dentistry and treating patients with gum disease.

Meral graduated as a dentist in 1994 and completed her PhD in Periodontology in 1999 in Turkey. She owned a private clinic before moving to Australia in 2004.

After moving to Australia, she completed her accreditation in Melbourne in 2005. Since then, she worked in public and private clinics in Victoria before opening her own practice. After running a successful practice in Geelong, she decided to move to the warmer Gold Coast with her husband for a change in lifestyle.

Meral’s passion for dentistry started early as her father was a dentist. Whenever she went to his practice as a child, she enjoyed seeing her father explaining treatments to patients. In particular, she loved when her father gave his patients back a smile that they were proud of.

Dr Layik has a very caring and positive personality. She also enjoys talking to her patients and getting to know them to decide what the best treatment option is best for their case. Meral places high emphasis on the gentleness of her procedures and always tries to conduct treatments in a painless and efficient manner.

In her free time, Meral loves reading, getting out in nature and spending time with her family and friends.
