Our story

Feel special.

Our dentists individualize treatment plans for each client depending on your needs, concerns and budget. We will strive to understand your needs and exceed your expectations.

We are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality dental care in the same warm, caring, and professional manner we would extend to members of our own family.


Feel relaxed.

Our Doctors and staff are highly trained in dealing with anxious patients. We make every effort to provide a calm, relaxing environment. At Morphett St family Dental we have nitrous oxide (happy gas) available for assisting with this.

We have televisions on the ceiling in all the surgeries to keep you entertained, just let the staff know what you would like to watch.
