Our values

Our Philosophy

Optimal Health Care helps to enhance the quality of life. At LARA dental, our professionally trained staff positively contribute to the lives of our patients by educating and providing exceptional dental care.

We are committed to the wellbeing of our patients and staff. We do this because we respect our patients, our fellow colleagues, family and friends. Our team is committed with keeping up to date with the latest technology and education to furthering themselves both professionally and personally.

Our patients’ look forward to our next meeting because their expectations have been exceeded and they will enthusiastically share their experiences with their family and friends.

Our approach to patient care

Our treatment approach is to empower patients to make informed decisions about their dental health care. There are so many choices and options available today and the keystone of our approach is to explore and explain ALL relevant options, so our patients are in a better position to decide on how they wish to proceed. This can only be accomplished when treatment options are individually tailored. Mouths are not the same and not all patients desire the same outcomes. Listening to your history, your current issues and your future wishes are the key to understanding the path forward.

How do we achieve all of this?

Care and Commitment: LARA dental is committed to providing long-term quality dental care for you and your loved ones. Our team are friendly, respectful and highly trained, and we view your needs and expectations through your eyes, not our own. At LARA dental we believe in open communication and provide a compassionate and safe environment respecting the rights and dignity of all our patients. We are a highly experienced team and provide high quality, fair and ethical oral health information and care.


Our principal dentists have over 60 years combined experience in all matters dental. Our Oral Health therapists, hygienists and auxiliary staff are experienced and highly trained in their chosen fields of expertise.

Continuing Education

Our team is actively engaged in constant learning. The team attends courses routinely in modern techniques and prides itself in being at the forefront of new and research-based technologies and treatment.

Educating /Prevention before Cure

Our practice is grounded with the belief of preventive dentistry, helping you avoid unnecessary and expensive treatment wherever possible.


Lara Dental has been servicing the needs of the Lara and the greater Geelong communities spanning 3 decades. Individual solutions are tailored according to your needs with a view to the “long term” not just the “now”. This can only be possible when experience meets modern techniques.


Let’s face it; most people do not “enjoy” coming to the dentist. Many of our patients share a history of anxiety when it comes to dental visits. We understand this and strive to ensure that their experience with us changes the way they view dental treatment. Of paramount importance is our ability to provide pain free dentistry in a friendly and relaxed environment.
