Meet The Team

Thanks to our team of 32 practitioners, including dentists, specialists, hygienists and a dental prosthetist, Core Dental Group is able to provide a wide range of dental solutions. All our practitioners are members of the Australian Dental Association (ADA), as well as a range of other specialised associations and study groups.

Your individual case will benefit from our systems of peer review and treatment planning, guaranteeing optimum care.

Our practitioners are supported by a team of more than 50 receptionists, managers and nursing staff.

In particularly complex cases, we will refer you the Collins Street Specialist Centre, in Melbourne’s CBD, to ensure quality of outcome is not compromised.
