Dr Lidia A Palenberg is a General Dentist with 17 years of experience working in her own practice and also as a contractor. She speaks English, German and Polish.

She completed her conversion examinations to practice in Australia.

Lidia joined the Melville Family Dental team in 2020 and became the Principal Dentist in October 2021.

Dr Anni Bottoni, DDS (Germany)

General Dentist

I was born in Northern Germany and graduated from Hanover Medical School in 2007. 

Over the next 9 years, I worked in different practices in Germany and gained experience in all aspects of General Dentistry, as well as Endodontics and Orthodontics. 

In January 2017 my husband and I moved to Australia and after spending a few years in Queensland, we recently relocated to Perth. 

My passion for dentistry started at a young age, during my own orthodontic treatment. 

I place great value in prevention-based dentistry and minimally invasive treatments and it is satisfying to see how much patients benefit from ongoing good oral health. 

Helping my patients to smile confidently is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a dentist. 


I am looking forward to meeting you here at Melville Family Dental.

Victoria (Tory) Ramsay, RDH(Can), BScD(Aus)

Dental Hygienist

Tory received her bachelor of science in dentistry from UWA in 2013. The focus of her study was on oral medicine. Having taught in periodontics for 15 years at both UWA and Curtin University, Tory decided it was time to give the poor students a break and return to private practice. Having a Dental Hygienist degree from Canada, where she had her own practice, Tory prides herself in providing painless periodontal treatments for our practice.

A Healthy smile is just a click away.
