Our dentists are Dr Rachael Sullivan, principal dentist and owner and Dr Cliff Kushner, associate dentist – they are assisted by our skilled dental nursing team.
The administrative members of staff are Mr Casey Vivian, practice manager, our receptionist and their support staff.
While our dentists are highly skilled and competent in particular areas of general dentistry, back-to-basics dentistry remains the cog around which the practice turns.
