Anyone know an excellent dentist in Canberra?

By ange_canberra 28 December 2009 41

I am interested in hearing about any really, really good dentists in Canberra.  I need some significant dental work (root canal, crown and dental implant) and I have a fear of the dentist. 

I’ve tried a lady in civic but was not happy and so I hope someone out there has a great recommendation. 

If you are commenting and you work with or know the dentist you are recommending personally, please say so!  Thanks.

The most accomodating Dentists in the whole of Canberra I must say, my daughter was in so much of dental trauma on a Saturday and this dental clinic was the only Dentist that would offer us an emergency dental appointment. However we had to wait for an hour though, totally understandable with a waiting room full of patients and the lady Dentist Dr Sonal was so very kind, calm and well composed to deal with as my daughter was so anxious & stressed out due to her severe toothache. Dr Sonal treated her with the utmost gentle care we have ever seen.

We are switching over the whole family to Northside Family Dental having seen the best quality of dental care received here in our entire lifetime of having lived in Canberra southside and now moved to our new home in Gungahlin.

Definitely 5 stars for the best Gungahlin and Canberra emergency dentist experience. The fear of visiting a Dentist has totally vanished for my daughter after being here which is very very comforting for us as parents.

Oh, I forgot to put this awesome dental practice name and the web link, it is Northside Family Dental and their website is http://www.northsidefamilydental.com.au

I highly recommend Dr Kim Nguyen and Dr Mike Fleetwood from Civic Gentle Dental Care, my family and friends have been going there for a decade! The dentists are very professional, experienced, gentle and caring!

Our whole family, including 2 scaredy cats, has been going to Modern Dentistry for many years. Caring, professional, thoughtful staff.
Highly recommend.

A friend of mine suggested I see Dr Liang Liang at Oasis Dental in Kingston as she always raved about it. Liang gave her a smile make-over which was incredible. The veneers looked so natural, just perfect. I decided to make an appointment and the practice is lovely. Doesn’t feel at all like a dentist at all (and it smells nice!), everyone is super nice and being a bit scared of needles he is extremely gentle, I hardly even felt it! I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

I have been going to Graham Shaw for some years and have been happy with his service. He manages to replace fillings or put new ones in and I’ve never had anaesthetic as he doesn’t gouge ruthlessly down into nerves like others do. Seems to have that fine work control and gums don’t come away bleeding from cleans etc. Also he has done very fine work doing micro fillings in behind one of my front teeth.

I had a very nice experience with a lady called Padma at Evatt Dental. She was very gentle and quick and I didn’t feel over charged.

I recently had work done by Dr Graham Shaw at Hawker and personally i’m not happy with his work and wont ever be going back to him.

Dr Chris Hardwicke at Corinna Dental Group is fantastic. Gentle dentist and lovely person. May take quite some time to get in but it’s well worth it. Never had an issue.

I always recommend William Thompson, who’s in Manuka. I’m a total Dentaphobe, and he’s managed to get me to get regular check-ups. He’s done a number of fillings on me, and a root canal on my house-mate. I can’t speak too highly of him. He’s not that expensive either – as Dentists go.

I’m not sure if he can do the implant, but he’s definitely able to do the root canal and crown.

Good luck!

+10000, Bill Thompson is a great dentist with an awesome sense of humor… I had my root canal done by him, was about $1000 cheaper than any other dentist, and he did an amazing job, no pain during or after the procedure..

I know this post was a while ago, but I’m looking for a dentist to fix up some dodge work done elsewhere.

I also wouldn’t recommend the smile lounge. The first dentist I saw there was nice, but then she left and I had a strange dentist take my wisdom out, which likely didn’t need removing anyway, he left the door open until I asked him to shut it so his staff would stop coming in and asking him non-dental related questions and then when I asked him to look at a filling, he forgot about it because said staff members came in … again.

Colin Seaniger in Chisholm- highly recommended.

Don’t recommend Modern Dentistry. They are all smiles and professional but they are expensive and try to manipulate you into work you don’t need.

I’m bit scared of dentist but went to see a lady in Queanbeyan. I’m satisfied with the treatment and value of dollar spent. I can say quality and affordability can go side by side.

I have since seen Dr Loc Lam (recommended by someone earlier) and she was great. A number of work colleagues have also seen her and her opinions are honest and prices reasonable.

I went here the other day – they were great (despite the dental nurse excitingly telling me that this was her first day, and that she used to be a butcher). Highly recommended.

Wouldn’t want to wait for emergency dentist in public, made an appointment today for the 19th January, it’s the earliest I can get in, what a joke.

Managed to get into a dentist on the same day for an emergency treatment (a well established one in Tuggeranong) who patched up the problem pending further treatment, for which there is a two week wait. But I guess the pain over-rode the finacial impacts.

I wouldn’t go to Modern Dentistry. I had a good experience there but then had a bad one.

kjb21 I know Graham Shaw very well, he is in fact a great mate of mine. A bit confused though because when I spoke to him last he was still working as an mechanical fitter. Of course this may explain why you were told he wasn’t an orthondontist at the time, if in fact at all. I would of thought the oil stained blue overalls might of been a giveaway but I suppose you get what you pay for.

kjb21 10:50 am 22 Jan 10

I would avoid Graham Shaw. I had orthodontic treatment with him and am now scared of dentists. He would often slip, catch my gums etc… I’ve also been told that he wasn’t an orthodontist at the time.
