Confidence, experience and trust are the critical when values choosing a dentist.
You only have one set of teeth and it's important that they receive the best of care.
For the best patient experience, I have always believed in the patient centred approach, which as well as excellent technical work is important to build long term patient relationships.
I am across all dental issues that affect us at different stages of our life ,with a son and daughter in their 20's, a father who is 92, and have been the official dentist for Pymble Ladies College for 2 decades.
My passions include health and fitness, photography and travel.
I am proud to have been Accredited since 2013 , one of the first 3 Dentists on the North Shore, and in fact one of first 100 in the whole of Australia to be accredited
Stringent infection control protocols, high quality autoclave sterilisation equipment, and a dedication to maintain excellent conditions are reflected in our last accreditation review of October 2019
Accreditation provides assurance to our patients, staff and everyone associated with the Practice that quality and performance standards have been met and are being constantly evaluated and improved upon.
Being a member of the American Dental Association for over 27 years, and attending their conferences annually, most recently in New York December 2019, has given early exposure to the latest technology : which has resulted in being the first to introduce technology to the North Shore that is now standard of care, including Autoclaves, Panoramic, and Digital X-rays.
We are COVID SAFE, having implemented the additional protocols of contactless App check-in ,sterilizing desks , social distanced waiting room area chairs , entrance door handles etc
Prevention is the key.
Probably the most important service a Dentist can do, as any potential issues can be fixed when they are small, and preventive advice can minimise future problems .
It is important to use premium materials and techniques to maximise the service life of a treatment.
My experience with premium 3M Brand materials over the decades enables a predictable long term result.
A key component of keeping your teeth for life.
Thorough professional cleaning removes plaque and scale, which harbours bacteria causing tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath.
As well as keeping your teeth looking good, it prolongs the service life of any treatment, and reduces the risk of losing teeth due to gum disease.
Dental Crowns are often required to protect and restore teeth that are worn, cracked and damaged or that have had root canals.
Veneers can be used to restore worn, chipped
and discoloured front teeth and provide a more affordable conservative option
Dental splints can prevent excessive tooth wear when you clench and grind your teeth during sleep .They can also postion your jaw to help minimize headaches and muscle pain
Implants , Bridges ,Dentures
These are all options to replace missing teeth .Implants require a Titanium screw to be placed into the jaw ,then a crown fixed to this .A Bridge requires placement of a crown on each tooth adjacent to the gap .Dentures are removable and are held in place by clips around adjacent teeth

Why is Prevention important ?
Prevention should be the focus for all health professionals , rather than treatment of disease .
For Children this includes dietary advice , tooth brushing methods ,and application of topical fluoride to harden the enamel against decay , Fissure seals can be applied to protect newly erupted permanent teeth
For adults regular professional cleanings will remove plaque and scale which cause tooth decay , gum inflammation with resulting bone loss
Necessary x-rays can detect problems between teeth or under the gum not visible or apparent when performing a clinical examination
Where do you get your Crowns and Implants made?
All our Crowns and Implants are made in Australia using
premium Swiss, German and Swedish materials and components.
Treatment is made more predictable because we have been using the same top Sydney Dental labs for 26 years.
What Infection Control and patient protection measures do you have for COVID 19
In addition to our stringent accreditation measures , we have introduce the latest Australian Government November 2020 procedures and are updating them on a daily basis
What if I have a Dental Emergency?
We have reserved appointment times each day to attend to any unexpected dental problems such as toothache, broken teeth and gum problems.
