How to Choose A Dentist You Feel Comfortable With

by Dr Anthony Hua

Dr Anthony Hua provides advice on choosing the right dentist for you.


If you’ve been hiding your smile, or putting off a visit to the dentist, it’s time to bite the bullet for the sake of your overall health and wellbeing. For those looking for a reputable dentist in Gold Coast who you feel comfortable with, there are a variety of things you may like to consider:


    • Expertise
    • Before & After Gallery
    • Dental Anxiety
    • Payment Options


It pays to do a little bit of homework when selecting your dentist.

When visiting dental practice websites, be sure to check out the dentist’s qualifications, certifications, industry memberships, any awards of merit as well as if the practice is a Quality Innovation Performance (QIP) accredited practice.

You can see, or ask in person, whether they are active members of the Australian dental community, and whether they are affiliated or have Fellowships with prestigious organisations such as:

  • American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD)
  • Australian Society of Implant Dentistry (ASID)
  • International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI)
  • Australian Dental Association (ADA)
  • Quality Innovation Performance (QIP)

Before & After Gallery

A photo gallery featuring actual before and after cases is a great opportunity to see the quality of previous dental work and the standard of clinical care provided. You can get an idea of the amazing transformations that have been achieved and what may be possible to correct or enhance your own smile. You can view our before & after photos here.

Payment Options

Don’t let a lack of funds prevent you from seeking dental treatment or achieving the smile you’ve dreamt about for many years. Many dental practices provide health fund rebates and payment plan options that can suit your needs.

We can help you access a variety of payment options, including access to your superannuation funds to cover the cost of your dental treatment. Payment plan options are also available to allow you to have treatment now but pay later.

Dental Anxiety

We understand that some patients may be anxious about visiting the dentist. When searching for a dentist you feel comfortable with, visit the dental practice to get a feel for the surroundings, visit their website to review the information about the clinical team, or call and discuss your concerns and what treatment options are available.

At Burleigh Dental Studio, we take the time to get to know our patients, their concerns and smile goals. We want you to feel well-informed and positive about your treatment. When you visit us, all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy listening to your favourite music on Spotify or watch Netflix as we care for your smile.

It’s always worth remembering, prevention is the key – with regular check-up and clean visits. And it’s best to have any issues attended to as early as possible, before they become major concerns.
