About Us

Get to know about Suburban Smiles and the team.

Our Practice

Suburban Smiles (previously known as Toothpals) is a dental practice that develops relationships with our patients and strives to deliver the highest standard of care in a relaxed atmosphere.

Our team has provided expert dental care to the people of Blackburn and the eastern suburbs of Melbourne since 1997.

Our practice has been built on word of mouth and the many referrals of family members and friends from our large loyal patient base who we have loved getting to know personally.

Our Approach

Our highest priority is always you. We always try to work our appointments around you to make it as convenient as possible for you to visit us around your busy schedule.

Dental treatment can be daunting and quite confronting for many people. Care and consideration goes into any work we perform and we take the time to explain treatment options and costs so that you leave knowledgeable and comfortable. The team at Suburban Smiles will make you feel at ease from the front desk through to the surgery and back out again.

All surgeries are equipped with digital x-ray machines, intra-oral cameras and monitors. We can capture quick and low-dose x-rays to help our dentists diagnose your concerns and also prevent future problems from occurring. With our intra-oral cameras, you see what our dentists see on a monitor in front of you. Our technology gives us the ability to show and better explain what is happening inside your mouth and what we can do for you.
