Dr Simon Franks

Dr Simon Franks

BSc(Hons), BDS(Hons), MClinDent Prosthodontics (Distinction), FRACDS, AKC

A Kiwi by birth, Simon is arguably one of Australia’s most qualified general dentists.  He has honors degrees in Dentistry, Neuroscience and Human Anatomy and a Masters of Clinical Dentistry awarded with distinction from King’s College London.  He has been elected as an Associate of King’s College London and is a fellow of the prestigious Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons serving on the Queensland Regional Committee as a candidate advisor.  He is also a postgraduate tutor for the Prosthodontics program at King’s College London.

Whilst he has completed a masters degree in prosthodontics (including dental aesthetics, veneers, crowns, bridges and implants), Simon maintains registration as a general dentist. Simon’s special interest and skills are in prosthodontics – the restoring and rebuilding of teeth and smiles. He has a particular interest in tooth wear (short, chipped and broken teeth), tooth grinding, acid erosion and tooth replacements (dental implants). A lot of the work he completes involves helping patients transition back from false or missing teeth to a full set of teeth that are securely fixed into the mouth.

Having completed his Prosthodontic Masters from one of the worlds leading dental universities – King’s College London, he also does a large number of dental cosmetic cases. He spends a lot of time with his patients discussing the obvious advantages of cosmetic dentistry but more importantly, the maintenance costs and long-term effects that this treatment can have on the mouth and body. He is known to use a wide variety of treatment options, materials and innovate techniques learnt from his time at King’s to achieve stunning cosmetic results for his patients that are long-lasting and easy to maintain.

Simon serves on the Queensland Council for the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons, is also a postgraduate tutor for, and has been elected as an Associate of King’s College London.

This education has developed a strong preventive approach to dentistry. Simon ensures he takes time with every patient to understand each aspect of a patient’s dental health and lifestyle, before deciding on the best course of treatment. He has found over time that it’s the quality of the relationship between dentist and patient that results in the best outcomes.

Simon regularly speaks for Diabetes Australia and also helps diabetes educators promote the links between diabetic control and oral health. He also has an interest in how poor oral health can exacerbate cardiovascular disease.

As a member of the Allied Health Network, he has direct access to many other therapies to improve patient care, including physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage and chiropractic care. He is also a member of the Australian Dental Association and maintains AHPRA registration as a general dentist.

For over a decade he has supported the East Meets West Foundation, regularly volunteering his time providing dental care for orphaned children in Vietnam.

Simon also has a young family and understands well how dentistry needs grow and change with a family.

Ingrid Rodriguez

Ingrid Rodriguez

Assoc. Dip in Dental Therapy

Ingrid completed her Associate Diploma in Dental Therapy 25 years ago, on the West Coast of Australia. Apart from the skills she acquired as a dental therapist/hygienist over the past two decades, she considers herself fortunate to have a broad range of experience in dentistry, including working alongside a forensic dentist for four years as well as in-hospital theatres with an oral surgeon. Ingrid is passionate about people and oral health, and her thirst for knowledge on preventive dentistry is unwavering.

Ingrid is a driven advocate on the importance of education on the links between oral health and general well-being. With scientific data arising daily on the connection between gum disease and other chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and respiratory disorders, her message is quite simple, “ Education is key for the prevention of oral disease. In dentistry, education on oral hygiene and oral health not only equips people with knowledge; it also empowers them to make better choices for themselves. This is very rewarding for me as I get to see firsthand the transformation in people’s mouths and therefore their lives.”

Ingrid is a social entrepreneur on a global mission to help people retain their teeth for life. When not in the clinic, you will find her with her scientific team advancing the development of cutting-edge products for the prevention of gum disease; sitting on judging panels with MBA students; at parliament roundtables discussing women founders in business or travelling the world keeping up to date with the latest advancements in dentistry.

Ingrid is actively involved with the Allied Health Network; and is a member of the Dental Hygienist Association of Australia as well as Life Science Queensland.
