Simon, Julia and the team love their work and the positive changes it brings to people—so you can rest assured they will listen to your concerns and address them with sensitivity.

Absolutely! At Bite Dental Studios we have a number of white filling options that will make your teeth comfortable, strong and look good at the same time!

This is an important question. Should you receive only the treatments that health funds are willing to pay for?

Dr Simon has a young family of his own and understands the importance of looking after teeth from a young age.

For this reason Bite Dental Caps the Gap for kids covered under a health fund to $20—and for those not covered, to $50 for the full examination, check up, clean and any x-rays required.

Bite Dental’s belief in caring for kids is reflected by Simon’s work treating orphaned children in Vietnam via the East Meets West Foundation Dental Program. Our Hygienist Jenna has also volunteered her time helping this worthy cause.

The Bite Dental team have a very gentle approach to dentistry.

We have worked with many phobic patients over the years, often helping them become more relaxed and confident about their dental care. The team sensitively works with you, at your pace, to make you feel ‘in control’ of your dental treatments.

Because we work to your comfort level our treatments are more relaxed and gentle and we can even schedule short breaks if required.

Because of this, our clients often remark that the most gentle experience they’ve ever had in the dentist’s chair has been with Bite Dental.
