Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

So very pleased I went back to Burnie Smile Care and met Dr. Clarke Eom. Dr Clarke is a highly skilled dentist who I have complete trust in. His expertise with a complex root canal was handled very professionally and he explained and expressed concern throughout procedure and follow-up. ...

This place is amazing! I had my tooth taken out recently with no issues whatsoever. The staff are so friendly and helpful and all the costs were explained to me before going ahead. Not expensive at all, very reasonable compared to other places I’ve been to.

Dr Spiteri was amazing with my 8 year old son, He explained everything perfectly to him step by step on what he was going to be doing and sent him away with some achievable goals for an 8 year old. I can not recommended highly enough and the whole team were fantastic. Will definitely be our new regular dentist.
