The team at Ocean Grove Dental Clinic would like to extend its most heartfelt gratitude to an amazing community.

The clinic has been a proud member of the town for 24 years and, in more recent months, remained open throughout COVID-19.

Ocean Grove Dental Clinic’s highly experienced team, led by principal dentists David Lakkis and Tina Nguyen, demonstrated a commitment to the community by riding the wave of these uncertain times alongside clients.

“We wanted to make sure our community was never without dental care when they needed it most,” Dr Lakkis says. “Under current restrictions, all dental procedures are now permissible, encompassing everything from emergency to elective.

“This includes routine check-up and cleans, fillings, crown and bridge work, cosmetic, implants and orthodontic procedures.

“This does not mean our diligence to your health and wellbeing has slackened, and we continue to abide by stringent infection-control standards to ensure a safe environment for all.”

Screening remains a key feature of every visit and patients are advised to let reception staff know if they are experiencing any cold/flu-like symptoms, have a recent history of travel, or had contact with any suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Dr Nguyen says that the small business runs on the principle of empathy, high quality care, and treating the community like family.

“You’ve always been there supporting our ever-growing family business, and we’re committed to taking care of your dental health for many more decades to come,” she says.

“All our dentists have a wealth of experience, and as a team, we enjoy the benefit of continuous peer discussions and professional education, which ensures that we are always providing the highest quality treatment possible.

“Thank you so much for your continued love and support over the past two decades.”
