More than a dental practice that’s Sensational in name, we’ve created a Sensational approach of doing everything dental!
We are a unique dental practice in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire. As dentists – and thinkers – we’ve taken time to understand what patients want. Ultimately, everyone wants one thing in their dental care: to feel good about themselves, their smile and their health, having teeth they can trust and a smile worth sharing.
With this in mind, we’ve designed our unique approach to dentistry to help our patients achieve exactly that, implementing modern dentistry with timeless values!
At Sensational Smiles Dental, we are passionate about providing our patients with oral health education and the tools to help them achieve that. We take a comprehensive approach, considering not just the treatment that is needed, but also the person who needs it and strive to ensure each patient leaves the surgery feeling happy and confident in us.
We are a VALUES driven practice
Our Values guide every member of our team to excel in what we do every day. Our Values are:
