Individual Profiles of our TeamWe Are Here To Help You - Please Tell Us How
Born and bred in Brisbane, Ross followed a strong family tradition (being the third Galloway brother to graduate from Dentistry at Qld University in 1985) into dentistry. After working in Melbourne and the UK he returned to his hometown and established Mary Street Dental. Being the principal dentist of the practice, Ross has guided the Mary Street team over the years to make MSD one of the most respected dental practices in Brisbane. Ross enjoys all aspects of general dentistry with a particular focus on “crown and Bridge” and high tech dentistry. He attends regular courses and lectures to keep abreast of the latest the dental world has to offer and so that he can offer a high level of dental care to his patients. Ross established one of Brisbane’s premier dental study groups with the aim of maintaining superior dental education. Ross’s wife Paula helps at the surgery and he has 3 very active school age children that absorb most of his spare time. When able, Ross enjoys travel, reading, running, tennis, rugby, skiing, cricket and golf. (albeit golf is currently more of a dream than reality!)

She enjoys challenges and new environments, and has worked in various metropolitan and rural areas including Hervey Bay, Caloundra, Gold Coast, Cairns, Cape York Peninsula with the Royal Flying Doctors Service, Melbourne and Geelong.

In her spare time, Chen loves hiking, camping and enjoys the great outdoors. She keeps active by cycling, running and dancing around the house to good music. She also speaks fluent Mandarin.

Silvia Malancioiu completed a Bachelor of Applied Science, Oral Health at University of Queensland in 2003. This qualifies her to work as a Dental Hygienist and Oral Health Therapist. Originally from Romania, Silvia arrived in Australia 17 years ago. Her first years were exciting and challenging: learning a new language, understanding and adapting to a new culture while raising her two children. It was through her casual job in a cosmetic surgery that Silvia realized that a career in health would bring her personal satisfaction. At Mary Street Dental, together with the rest of the team, Silvia provides a warm, welcome environment for our patients and tailors her dental hygiene treatment and education so to obtain and maintain patient’s oral health. After work, Silvia enjoys reading and spending time in activities involving her children.
Since completing her dual qualification in both Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy in 2002, Maria has worked in various dental settings and has gained invaluable experience. Maria enjoys building relationships and strives on always creating positive experiences. She is known for her thorough, yet gentle approach for each and every patient. She also likes to provide patients with up to date advances in dentistry by attending regular continuing education seminars. Outside of work, Maria is kept busy (but wouldn’t have it any other way) with both her sons and 2 fur babies – with the occasional additional fostered fur baby.
