Welcome Our New Robina Village Dentist Dr Meral Layik

The Coastal Dental Care team would like to extend a warm welcome to our new Robina Village dentist Dr Meral Layik. We are looking forward to the kind, gentle and caring manner the experienced dentist will bring to our practice.

Coastal Dental Care Robina Village is conveniently located in the Robina Shopping Village and has undergone renovations in 2018. We now welcome patients in our five state-of-the-art dental surgeries. Visit the team in our newly upgraded practice and meet our new dentist Dr Meral Layik.


Dr Layik brings with her more than 25 years of experience as a dentist to our Robina Village practice. In 1994, Meral graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Dental Science in Turkey. She has also worked full time in hospitals, while completing her PhD in Periodontology at the University of Hacettepe, Ankara, Turkey. Meral owned her own private clinic before moving to Australia in 2004.

Meral completed her accreditation in Melbourne in 2005. After that, she worked in Victoria in both public and private clinics before opening her own practice in Geelong. In 2018, Meral and her husband decided they wanted a change in lifestyle and they moved to the warmer Gold Coast.

About Dr Meral Layik

Meral especially enjoys family dentistry and has vast knowledge in cosmetic dentistry. In addition, she is experienced in treating patients with gum disease.

Dr Layik’s passion for dentistry was inspired by her father who was also a dentist. She visited his practice often as a child to watch him with his patients. Meral was impressed to see how her father explained treatments and made his patients who initially hated their smile loving their teeth again.

In particular, she enjoys talking to her patients. This way she is getting to know them well and can then decide what the best treatment option is for their case.

Dr Layik always ensures she conducts procedures in a gentle manner. She aims to make dental treatments as painless as possible for her patients.

Personal Hobbies

In her time away from dentistry, Meral enjoys reading and spending time out in nature. She also loves getting active with her family and friends.
