Welcome to our Practice

Totally Dental was the innovation of two dentists who dreamed of creating a dental practice that was specifically designed to address the dental needs of the community by promoting preventative dentistry. This dream was shared with a special group of employees who harnessed and helped launch the totallydental approach to both education and patient care. Dr’s Efstathis, Hendry and Tapsall have worked together as an effective team for the last 18 years, each dentist continually liaising with each other regarding complex dental situations for the best course of treatment.

We welcome all patients at totallydental and our supportive staff understand the hesitant person who has not been to the Dentist for some time. Our Dentists have years of experience caring for all types of patients and their dental needs.

Our Dentists frequently attend continuing education seminars to stay abreast of new developments in all aspects of dentistry, from Preventative Dentistry to Dental Implants with a constant emphasis on Infection Control.

Drs Efstathis, Hendry and Tapsall will spend the time to create a dental plan to accommodate your individual dental needs. This plan can be tailored to your budget and each appointment can be organised at a pace that suits you.

To make your first appointment effortless we have provided our potential new patients with a new patient form to print out and complete prior to your dental appointment to save yourself time, making your first visit relaxed and inviting.
