About Our Dental Team In Deakin

At Dental Vitality, our aim is to provide a holistic approach to your dental treatment. We have been a non-amalgam practice for over 30 years with a strong emphasis on prevention, nutrition and minimal intervention. To this end we use only TGA approved dental materials and BPA free composite resin filling materials.

Our Collaborative Practice

We have two highly experienced dentists with 50 years combined experience. Thomas, Sharon and Charlie share a compassionate ethos and treat patients with respect and consideration, discussing treatment options and guiding the decision process to the best patient focused outcome.

Dental Vitality is a collaborative practice, and Thomas, Sharon and Charlie routinely discuss cases and treatment progress, valuing input from other professionals. They work closely with highly regarded specialists in the Canberra region.

With increased longevity of life, we need our teeth to stay strong and healthy. That is why we value regular preventative maintenance as essential to detecting and managing early dental disease. Research continues to show strong links between poor oral health and systemic disease.

Maintaining The Highest Standards

We strive to maintain the highest standards of Infection Prevention and Control (currently AS 4815) and our staff undergo regular training and revision. All our staff are trained as 1st responders.
