Here at SDAI, it’s not about the latest gadgets and toys; it’s about the patient experience and what we can do to give you a comfortable, pain free dentist experience.

Everything about our practice is designed with you in mind.

From the moment you walk through the doors of the historic Colonial Mutual Life building in Martin Place, through to aftercare and follow-up appointments, we aim to make sure your visit to us is comfortable, relaxed and stress free.

A warm and friendly smile greets you on arrival, and that level of consideration continues as you go through treatment.

Our team pride themselves on putting you at ease, and our number one priority is your comfort and well-being.

Our values and mission

Here at SDAI, we truly believe that compassion and caring, mixed with experience and innovation, can give you the ultimate dentist experience.

By bringing together highly trained doctors and empathetic, dedicated staff, we strive to give our patients the very best in dental care. We pledge to value our patients and their needs above all else.

We do everything we can to make your dentist experience comfortable and relaxed, and to have a full understanding of what’s going on at every stage of treatment.

We focus on our patient’s health and quality of life, rather than simply filling cavities.

With our exclusive boutique service, we will work with you to craft an individualised treatment plan, designed to not only meet your specific needs, but to ensure your experience is worry free from the moment you step through our door.

We follow the same rules here as we would in all our personal lives:  respect, integrity and honesty – these are the foundations for long-lasting and valuable relationships with our patients.

We will guide you through the dental process which begins with a thorough examination.

At Sydney Dental Aesthetics and Implants, we strive to provide you with dental care that is innovative, comprehensive and comfortable in a safe and caring environment.
