Dr. Grant McGrath grew up in Grange and went to St. Columba’s Primary School at Wilston as a young boy. He even still plays soccer for Grange Thistle Soccer Club! Grant and his wife, Jasmine, live in the area and his parents still live in the house he grew up in. His memories of growing up in Grange were always going to bring him back so that he can serve this community.
Grant graduated from the University of Queensland in 2009 with his Bachelor of Dental Science and believed he would be able to not only fix teeth and gums, but that he would be able help to prevent oral health problems in the first place.
After 8 years of working in various private dental practices, he realised that he was fixing plenty of teeth, but not solving the problems that he thought he would. So, Jasmine and Grant established Method Dental to not only provide dental care but to prevent developing dental problems by increasing the awareness about oral health and prevention strategies. Dr. Grant is also a skilled clinician, providing high quality restorative and cosmetic dental services – but really, dentistry is and always has been about more than just teeth to him!
Grant visits local schools and kindergartens to educate the kids about oral health, he is passionate about producing videos, blogs and anything that helps people and he’s on a mission to change the way that we view dentistry and oral health.
DR. SHARON CHEN BDSc (Hons 1)
Dr. Sharon Chen graduated from the University of Queensland with first class honours in 2020 and worked in regional Queensland before joining the team at Method Dental. She grew up in Sydney and moved up to the Sunshine State 8 years ago and is loving it here!
What always inspired Sharon about dentistry was how she is able to help people every day. With her gentle and conscientious nature, she makes visits to the dentist not only comfortable, but enjoyable. Kids and adults alike love visiting Dr. Sharon and as with all of our team at Method Dental, she loves getting to know her patients beyond their teeth.
Sharon finds dentistry most fulfilling when she helps patients to not only enjoy their food through having healthy teeth, but to smile confidently. Preventative dentistry is a strong focus and she has completed numerous continuing education courses to hone her skills in restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
Outside of dentistry, Sharon enjoys trying out new cooking and baking recipes, pilates or enjoying the outdoors!
DR. JUSTIN OOI BDSc (Hons 1)
Dr. Justin Ooi studied dentistry at the University of Queensland and actually met Dr. Grant while studying! He graduated with first class honours in 2010 and he was welcomed with open arms into the Method Dental family, in part because he is already family! Justin is Jasmine’s brother and Grant’s brother-in-law and he has been the perfect addition to our team.
When it comes to modern dental care, Justin believes that trust is always earned. His empathetic manner and ability to slow down and understand the issues our patients face, helps to break down the barrier that stands between an anxious patient and the dental care they require.
He works hard to make lasting impressions on children during their dental visits to ensure that they have a healthy relationship with oral health and dentistry as they grow up. One of the greatest rewards of the job is seeing his patients, both children and adults, gradually forget their fear of the dentist. In addition to general and children’s dentistry, Justin also has special interests in dental implants and aesthetic dentistry.
Justin also speaks more than five languages (English, Chinese, Malay, French, Spanish and a little bit of Italian) which means being able to communicate with and help more members of the community! When not drawing or engaging in photography, he is most likely busying himself cooking everything from scratch or potentially learning more languages.
DR. JESSICA TAM DDS
Dr. Jessica Tam graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2017 with various awards for her academic achievements and community service. Having lived in Melbourne all her life, she moved to Brisbane recently and is loving the sea change!
Jessica is gentle, thorough and caring. She understands that people are often nervous about their visits to the dentist, and with this in mind, she aims to create a relaxing and comfortable experience for everyone. Her key values align with Method Dental as she listens, respects, communicates clearly and takes the time to understand her patients and their individual needs to help keep them healthy.
Jessica gets great satisfaction from working with patients from all kinds of backgrounds and levels of dental need, as shown by her mixture of volunteer work and private dentistry. As a graduate from the University of Melbourne, she is up to date and modern in her approach, and always enhancing her skills in dentistry with continuing education.
Outside dentistry, Jessica loves exploring Brisbane, volunteering, practicing yoga and spending time with family and friends.
Jessica can speak Cantonese and Mandarin, and warmly welcomes all people that come through the door!
JASMINE OOI BPharm
Meet the person who is most likely to greet you at the door or answer your phone call! Jasmine is Co-founder of Method Dental, along with Grant, as well as the Receptionist, Practice Manager and our very own in-house Pharmacist!
She has worked as a pharmacist at various pharmacies across Brisbane and Toowoomba since graduating in 2011 from the University of Queensland. As a pharmacist, Jasmine is able to help a lot of people with their health. But the environment of Method Dental offers the chance to affect more personal and meaningful changes.
Jasmine completed her Certificate IV in Practice Management in 2017 and has embraced her role in both managing the clinic and in welcoming and calming our patients! The best part of her job is getting to know and learning all about our awesome patients, playing with the kiddies at the kids corner and making everyone feel warm and welcomed.
Macey assists our dentists on Saturdays and loves to make our weekends at Method Dental fun! She enjoys dental assisting and she is always curious about the procedures and intricacies of modern dentistry.
One of her favourite things to do is to welcome kids into the world of dentistry and help them to feel at ease when visiting Method Dental.
She is currently studying at University and we are all in her corner, hoping that she achieves all of her goals in her studies!
