Meet Dr Simon Franks

Dr Franks was born in New Zealand and is qualified with an honour's degrees in Dentistry, Neuroscience and Human Anatomy. He also has a master's degree in Clinical Dentistry, which he was awarded distinction from King's College London.

Since qualifying, Dr Franks has been elected as an associate of King College London and is also a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons, for which he serves on the Queensland Regional Committee and as an examiner.

What are Dr Franks'  strengths?

Although Dr Franks completed his master's degree in prosthodontics, which includes training in dental aesthetics, veneers, crowns, bridges and implants, he has maintained his registration as a general dentist. Some of Dr Franks special interests include prosthodontics, which refers to the restoration of damaged, worn and chipped teeth. He enjoys helping patients transition from false or missing teeth to reach a point where they can enjoy a fully functional and comfortable set of permanent teeth again.

Besides helping his patients by restoring the ability to chew comfortably, Dr Franks also works on a lot of dental cosmetic cases. Part of this process includes spending time with each of his patients to really make sure he understands their goals and expectations. Simon prides himself on creating some pretty stunning smiles  ones that are also long-lasting and easy to maintain
