Meet Your Dentist

      Dr Nhon Thai

      Bachelor of Dental Science 1995 (University of Melbourne)
      I graduated in 1995 from the University of Melbourne with honours and was fortunate to have a great mentor while working in Shepparton, country Victoria.  I found the people extremely receptive and friendly.  Work was challenging and I was able to hone my skills over the next few years.  I have also spent 3 years abroad in New Zealand and the United Kingdom and gained an appreciation of the different facets of dentistry practiced.  I was keen to build ties with the local community when I moved to nearby Brunswick many years ago and happily found this with Melville Dental Care.

      As a dental practitioner, my focus is on providing dental treatment best suited to each individual patient.  In my opinion dentistry is not only about practicing excellent clinical work but also establishing rapport with patients to develop a trusting relationship.  My emphasis has always been on maintaining excellent oral hygiene as the corner stone to great dental health as well as restoring the function of the teeth by replacing defective or old restorations.  My special interest is in restorative dentistry including crowns and I am continually updating my skills through continuing education. On a personal note, when I’m not at the practice you’ll find me enjoying Melbourne’s diverse food and culture, fishing, playing soccer or snowboarding.
