About Us

We are Ashgrove’s Dentists! Dr Lou Waldie, Dr Kate Collins, Dr Sophia Frankcombe and Dr Beth Keir all have a special connection to Ashgrove. Dr Lou and Dr Kate grew up in Ashgrove and attended local schools. Dr Sophia and Dr Beth have worked in the Ashgrove area for a few years and are now Ashgrove locals.

We love the community feel in Ashgrove, and strive to be part of this fantastic community. Our dentists attend many of the local daycare centers and kindergartens to present an interactive session teach the kids about dental health and hygiene. We further support the community by sponsor many local sports teams (GPS rugby, Soccer) and school events (St Finbarr’s Fashion Parade, Oakleigh State School Fete, many local school Newsletters etc.)

Our Practice

Our state of the art practice opened in 2015 and is modern with a very warm and inviting feel. Our Planmeca dental chairs are second to none when it comes to comfort (also referred to as the ‘golden marshmallow’ By Dr Lou), and are industry leaders for dental treatment. We also have the latest in digital radiographs, which means a much lower radiation dose to for you than traditional radiographs. We also have an OPG and Lat-Ceph machine onsite for your convenience. You can relax and tune out during your treatment by watching a movie. We even have noise cancelling headphones so you can’t hear the noisy drill.

Location

We are conveniently located on the corner of Waterworks Road and Stewart Road, across from the Ashgrove War Memorial.

Our practice is less than 5km from the city, and is easily accessed by public transport.

We also have undercover parking available for our patients, which is accessed by a driveway on Stewart Road.

There is ample space for wheelchairs and prams, and we are completely accessible by ramp.

We provide a human approach to dentistry

We believe that prevention is the key to maintaining a healthy mouth and body. We love to look after you and your family from the first ride in the chair, through the awkward braces years, and into adulthood and beyond. Our highly skilled dentists offer a full range of services from wisdom tooth removal, placement and restoration of dental implants, crown and bridge, orthodontics and invisalign, root canal treatment and composite resin restorations. Our dentists strive to be up to date with the latest techniques and technologies through continuing education to provide you with the best possible care.

It is a prerequisite that our dentists are highly skilled at making balloon creations! We want your children will have a fun and memorable experience and love coming to visit the dentist. We also have a dedicated kids corner in our waiting room with a duplo wall and letterbox for the tooth fairy.

We are so thankful for the support the community have given us from day one, and we hope to be part of this vibrant suburb for many years to come.
