As Pimpama’s first dental clinic, we’re proud to be the number one choice for dental care in our community.
Are you looking for a dentist that makes you feel at ease? Pimpama Dental prides itself on delivering personal and friendly service and making our patients as comfortable as possible.
We offer a wide range of services from family check-ups to complex cosmetic and restorative, crowns, cosmetic full-mouth restorations, extractions and emergency treatments. Our practitioners have a strong focus on education and will ensure that all of our patients have a full understanding of the options available to them, and what is involved in any potential treatment, including cost. With a modern, clean environment and experienced dentists we strive to deliver results of the highest standard.
Every treatment plan is fully personalised according to the dental history and needs of the patient, and our expert staff will always deliver a truly professional service. We also use the highest quality products in our clinic as well as digital x-rays, intraoral cameras and even have televisions on the ceiling to assist with your comfort.
As we are a member of Medibank, HCF and CBHS provider networks this means less out of pocket costs for you and greater benefits from these health funds. HICAPS is available for fast, easy claiming, allowing your claim to be processed electronically directly to your Health Fund, conveniently saving you time.
We are also participants of the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme and bulk bill directly to Medicare under this scheme with no extra fees incurred.
If you are ever in need of dental treatment, you’ll find our friendly staff more than happy to help you. Dr Rhett Shapcott, Dr Mervat Youssef and Dr Esther Kim are available Monday to Saturday to assist you with your oral health needs.
It’s important to us that all of our patients are able to visit the clinic easily and so we have extended evening and weekend opening hours and a same-day service. We also have free parking and disabled access so no-one should have difficulty coming to an appointment.
