Newmarket Family Dental

Meet The Team

Our gentle dentists and friendly staff look forward to welcoming you.

Dr Jamie Ma

Dentist, BDSc (Hons) UQ

Dr Jamie Ma grew up in Auckland, New Zealand before moving to Brisbane and commencing his academic studies at the University of Queensland. After graduating, Jamie briefly returned to Auckland and practiced as a Dentist, but he missed Brisbane, its people, and the Sunshine State. So, after a short period he returned and settled in Brisbane. 

Dr Jamie has experience working in public and private dental clinics, and he strives to deliver the best dental treatment tailored to each patients’ needs.  Jamie specialises in gentle dental treatment with a focus on pain-free dentistry.

In his spare time, Dr Jamie enjoys participating in volunteer dental activities with charities and not for profit organisations in Australia and internationally using his skills to provide emergency dental care to those in need.

His most adventurous trip was to Nepal providing education and dental care to children at an orphanage. When he’s not working or volunteering, Jamie enjoys the beach, cooking and travelling.

Dr. Mark Wu of Newmarket Family Dental

Dr Mark Wu

Dentist, DDS UniMelb

Dr Mark Wu completed his dental degree at the University of Melbourne. Before settling in Brisbane, Mark spent many years in a very busy private dental clinic in North Queensland and is therefore skilled in all aspects of dentistry. 

Mark has a special interest in oral surgery and dental implant and he’s well experienced in wisdom teeth extraction. Whether to help you achieve the perfect smile or keep your oral health on track, Mark aims to deliver high quality dentistry in a calm and comfortable environment.

Mark is committed to constant improvement and training. He has studied dental implant and advanced dentistry from internationally recognised institutes. To keep up with the latest dental knowledge and techniques, each year he spends hundreds of hours in attending conferences, courses and workshops delivered by worldwide experts.

Mark’s spare time is kept busy with his wife and two adorable (sometimes) children. Being father to a girl and a boy, he has an impressive knowledge of barbie dolls and PAW Patrol. He enjoys food and collects Trappist beers and their matching glasses.

Dr Manahil Aamer

Dentist, BDSc CSU

Dr Manahil (or Dr Manny to all who know her!) found her passion in Dentistry when she realised that she could combine her love for both art and science while helping people smile every day.

After moving to Orange to complete her Dentistry degree, she was able to train throughout regional NSW in underserved communities before she decided to return home to the Sunshine State and replace the snowy weather with sunny beaches.

Dr Manny is especially passionate about aesthetic dentistry and enjoys all aspects of general dentistry as it brings her the utmost happiness to see her patients’ confidence grow, along with their attitude and knowledge of oral health care.

Outside the clinic, Dr Manny spends her time painting, reading a good mystery novel and catching up on the latest Netflix shows.
