All of our dentists are members of the Australian Dental Association (ADA) and as such are constantly furthering and updating their knowledge so that they can offer their patients the most up to date and safest dental care available. 

Our dentists’ expertise ranges from complex wisdom teeth extractions to restoring broken teeth as well as cosmetic dentistry from veneers, crowns and build ups right through to all types of teeth replacement from different types of dentures to dental implants and all on 4, permanent dentures and bridges. Crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth can also be addressed with our very successful Invisalgn treatments. And if anxiety or a bad past experience is an issue then our dentists have options to overcome this as well. They are all experienced in all types of Sleep Dentistry. 

Nothing delights our dentists more than to help you achieve the confident, healthy smile that you have always wanted!
