Our Specialists

We have three female specialist Paediatric Dentists. We share a similar preventive philosophy and enjoy working in a group practice in order to provide our families with our combined expertise and flexible appointments. We regularly discuss challenging clinical scenarios in our professional peer-review meetings in order to find the best oral health outcomes for the children we take care of.
