About Lucas Dental Care

Lucas Dental Care was established by a paediatric dentist, Dr James Lucas, with the aim of caring for children and their families. It has branches in Glen Iris, Bundoora and Mornington.

 

The dental team includes 3 paediatric dental specialists (A/Prof James Lucas, Dr Sara Shayegan and Dr Janita Shah), a SND specialist (Dr Nikki Liew), 2 general dentists (Dr Tanya Gershenzon and Dr Rachel Sim) and an oral health therapist (Ms Hillary Ho).

About the SND program

Dr Liew provides treatment for all types of adult patients with special health care needs. At Lucas Dental Care, the facilities are particularly well suited for young people who are transitioning from paediatric to adult dental services, and for people who would like access to sedation services (nitrous oxide and general anaesthetic).  

Our SND patients require specialist management due to their level of frailty, disability or the degree of complexity of their management. However, not all patients require ongoing specialist care and we can develop shared care plans with general dentists.

Our aim is to provide high-quality care, with a focus on prevention and advice to control oral diseases. In the long term, this reduces the need for complex treatment and the risk of pain and discomfort.
