Our Dental Team

Our team of dentists, led by Dr Adam Keyes-Tilley, along with Dr Maria Smetanina and Dr Simon Wong, have worked together for the best part of a decade.

They bring local and international dentistry experience, with postgraduate training and experience across multiple disciplines, including Children’s, Preventative, Orthodontic, Aesthetic, Implant and Restorative Dentistry.

Dr Sean Arendse also works with our clinical team as a cosmetic physician. We are supported by dental hygienists, dental assistants and patient care staff. Helen Barbas coordinates all our patient care.

We work together to provide you with Complete Dental Care.
