Meet your dentist in Mackay
At Northern Beaches Dental in Mackay, our team of highly skilled dentists are here to help you achieve great oral health. We don’t just treat dental disease, but aim to prevent it too, with preventive treatments, nutritional advice and guidance on brushing techniques.
We have three dentists at our clinic, each with different areas of focus.
Dr Prathap Kripakaran
Our principal dentist in Mackay Dr Kripakaran (or Dr PK as he is known around the surgery) has been practising in Australia for 14 years. He is especially known for helping our nervous patients to relax, and for using technology to make dental surgery as simple and pain-free as possible. He carries out microscope-assisted surgery for root canals, dental implants and other oral surgical procedures. Dr PK makes sure that this dentist in Mackay has the latest equipment and he continues to go on training courses to make sure he is up to date with how new technologies can help his patients.
Dr Simi Jacob
Dr Jacob has been a practising dentist in Australia for 7 years. She enjoys working with children and helping them to establish good oral health habits that will help them to keep their teeth for life. She also has a focus on cosmetic work and loves to see the difference it makes to a patient when they feel happy and confident with their smile. She has been trained to fit Invisalign clear aligners: transparent braces that provide straighter teeth for teens and adults.
Dr Alex Teh
Dr Teh has been at our dentist in Mackay for 3 years, having moved here to work at a family-orientated practice. He is very patient-focused in his approach and is happy to give out information and advice about all our treatment options, so our patients can make their own informed choice. He also keeps his finger on the pulse of dental research and likes to stay informed of the latest trends in treatments and techniques.
All our dentists are compassionate, caring, professional and friendly in their approach to patients and are focused on helping you to have the best experience possible. Drop into our conveniently located surgery today to find out more.
