All options and your priorities are outlined to help you make an informed decision. Additionally, flexible payment plans are available in suitable cases.

- Dr Kamal RajYour Dentist
My enthusiasm and passion for Dentistry has seen me complete many hours of postgraduate education. I am also a founding member of the Melbourne Seattle Study Club which is a group of dentists worldwide that are passionate about dental care for their patients.
When I am not busy attending to my practice and the care of my patients, I enjoy cooking; especially Spanish and Italian food, organising huge lavish Sunday lunches for my family and friends. My ultimate dream is to rent a villa in Tuscany while attending a Tuscan cooking school.
I also collect malt whiskey and play golf with my two sons (hoping that one day for the three of us to make it to Augusta to watch the U.S masters).
