About

Your local dentists… Riviera Dental Care (dentists Bairnsdale Victoria) is accredited as meeting new National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards.

Thank you for choosing our practice! Our name may have changed to Riviera Dental Care in 2011, but we have been part of the East Gippsland community for several decades. We have a proven track record and reputation for helping generations of local patients. Over the years the principal dentists at our clinic have included Drs Kim Penglase, Tim Allen, Varo Dharmarajah and Aaron Bazley.

We recognize that every patient has their own aspirations and expectations for their oral health.

Our aim is to provide the best level of care and service we can to meet those aspirations, and try to exceed expectations.

We view the health of the teeth and mouth as an important part of total body health. Unresolved dental problems, such  as chronic tooth or gum infections, can spread through the body to affect the heart and other organs, and suppress our immune system response (JOURNAL ARTICLE).  As well as treating disease, we try to educate patients as to why problems may have occurred. We like to put in place preventive measures to reduce future treatment needs and increase general well being.

In 2013 Riviera Dental care was accredited as meeting new National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards. This was conducted by Quality in Practice, an independent assessment body (SEE PRACTICE ACCREDITATION). It is an example of why our patients should feel confident in the level of care we aim to provide.
