Our History

“Long tradition of providing professional dental care…”

Carlingford Dental Surgery has a long and proud history of providing professional dental care.

In 1968, Dr John Tait opened the dental surgery at Level 1, 285B Pennant Hills Road, Carlingford. Following this, Dr Frank Jones took over and managed the practice for about thirty years. In the years nearing his retirement, Dr Jones took on an associate, Dr John Fitzsimons. The practice has been managed by Dr Steven Du since 2001.

In 2009, Carlingford Dental Surgery moved to the ground floor at Suite 4, 835 – 839 Pennant Hills Road, Carlingford. The move significantly improved access for the more elderly and less mobile patients. Patients with prams also found the move a great improvement in obtaining dental care for the whole family.

The new premises took approximately 12 months to complete. It was designed to accommodate numerous additional state-of-the art equipment, making the practice a very modern and exiting place to work. The surgery has a contemporary look and a friendly atmosphere to help patients feel relaxed and positive about their dental visit.

In late 2015, Dr Aija Bisnieks joined Carlingford Dental Surgery, prior to her transition to retirement from more than 40 years of dental service to the community. With this move, she was able to pass the records of her patients, to the care of Dr Steven Du.

We look forward to seeing all our new and existing patients to the new surgery!
