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.

Ive heard a few good things about Fang in Dickson. He is ALWAYS open, even on public hols and Sundays ( although I think you pay quite a bit for his inconvenience). Apparently does a great job tooth wise.

I’ve never had any major work done, but I have been going to Jo Newton in Civic since I was a kid and she’s wonderful. She used to clean my teeth and then French-braid my hair for me afterwards!

Bill Thompson above Maccas in Manuka.
Best I’ve ever been to.

Dr James O’Brien at Campbell shops 6247 2240 is great. Been going to him for years. Haven’t had any MAJOR work done with him, but very good skills, patient care, and personality. In response to your request Ange, I don’t know him personally or work with him in any way – he’s just a good dentist.

I’m sure a lot are doing it now days, he also has “Hicaps” so if you’re privately covered you can claim through them.

I-filed said :

Chris Kwoy or Quoi on the corner near the Ainslie Shops. Great atmosphere, state of the art equipment, and he has a great sense of humour and sets you at your ease … can’t recommend him highly enough! I have sent several friends to him and they are all happy with him too …

seconded! had a tooth removed a few weeks back -ouch – but chris was gently, communicative and personable all throughout, never didactic and didn’t lecture me (too much) about the rest of my teeth’s health. I only went to him because I had been to the same clinic with the previous dentist and needed work pronto. will be going back; which is saying much for this black duck!

I hear an echo here! Use the search engine and type in Dentist. As I have responded B4, you cant seriously expect one common reply to “an(singular)excellent dentist”, can you?

Brad Horwood (University Ave, Civic), amazing, best I have ever been to.

The dentists at Woden on Corinna St are good and they use sedation, upon request. My husband has a phobia of dentists and found the sedation to be fantastic. I’ve also had a wisdom tooth removed by them and received excellent service. The only downfall to using them is that they don’t swipe your health benefits card there and then.

Good luck!!

I’ve found Graham Shaw at Hawker (used to be at Charnwood)to be very good – and his fees tend to be on the more reasonable side than some.

I had my root canal done in Deakin by Dr Mark Taylor. I don’t remember the name of the clinic or anything though. I was referred there by the dentists at Lyneham shops. It’s funny, I thought it was supposed to be some big horrible procedure, but it wasn’t a problem at all…

Dr Fang (I know, right?) in Dickson was great. Can’t remember the name of the practice, it’s opposite Subway.

Dr Loc Lam in Lonsdale Street. I have recommended her to a few ‘scaredy cats’ and they’ve all been appreciative. Does not overcharge either in my experience. (02) 6257 3072

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!

Alex Paragi. He was in Kingston when I went there last.
