Tradition of Innovation
At the forefront of dentistry for over 30 years...
For over 30 years, North Adelaide Dental Care has been committed to innovating services to ensure a healthy smile is accessible to everyone. These innovations have contributed to the dental profession in many ways.
North Adelaide Dental Care is one of the first General Dental Practices in Australia:
- to provide in-room, IV Sedation administered by a Specialist Anaesthetist (since 1986)
- to place dental implants (since 1986)
- to utilise the services of Dental Hygienists as a means to support and enhance the care of oral health care outcomes for our patients (since 1988)
- to provide master classes for the dental profession on dental implant placement and restoration (since 2007).
Our clinicians have taken a leadership approach to professional development at local, national and international levels. This commitment has been recognised by numerous awards, honorary academies and positions within the profession including as guest lecturers and mentorships.
