In 1987, Dr Lalieu and his wife, Alison (a Physiotherapist, Counsellor and now a Consultant in a Life Balance/Performance Management IT Company [see UBalancer]), immigrated to Brisbane. They have four children (three girls, and then finally a son!) When not in the office, Dr Lalieu plays (often not very well!!) golf and tennis (Dr Lalieu represented his State at tennis as a junior). He enjoys supporting his beloved Reds and Wallaby rugby union teams (yes, he’s Exact Orthodontics changed allegiance, they say he arrived in Australia!). He loves cooking (and eating!), but most of all, he enjoys spending time with his family.
Dr Lalieu is registered as a Specialist Orthodontist with the Dental Board of Queensland. He is a Member of the Royal Australasian College of Dentists. In addition, Dr Lalieu is Board Certified by the Australian Orthodontic Board.
