We are a family owned practice, operated by a brother and sister team. All our clinicians pride ourselves on treating our patients like family.
Our practice is not owned or dictated by a large corporation or private health fund - so this means we work for you - and only you, our patient. At Landale Dental, we are patient centric, not target driven.
All our clinicians completed their university dental degrees in Australia and are members of the Australian Dental Association.
Only Australian laboratories manufacture our laboratory work, which means high-quality workmanship and TGA approved materials.
