Dental clinics in Australia are now able to resume operating under Level 1 restrictions (as of 11th may 2020). This means that dental clinics are now able to provide the full array of dental services that have always been available.

However, it is still  imperative that you tell our receptionist if you are suffering from any of the following symptoms: sore throat, fever, cough, shortness of breath.  You must also inform us if you have reason to believe that you may have come into contact with a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case, or if you yourself are a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case. We will  ask you to use hand sanitiser on entering and exiting the clinic, and we will take your temperature with an infrared forehead thermometer upon entering the clinic. We will also get each patient to do a pre-treatment mouthwash with 1% hydrogen peroxide for 20 seconds at the beginning of your appointment.

We aim to do everything possible to keep ourselves, our staff and our patients safe in the current environment.



South Morang Dental was the very first dental practice to be established in the suburb of South Morang. Practice owners Dr Phillip Swainsbury and Dr Renae Welsh established the practice in 2002 and committed to providing high-quality, but affordable, dental treatment to the residents of South Morang, Mill Park, Epping, Bundoora, Mernda, Whittlesea, Doreen, Yarrambat, and other surrounding areas. Their excellent reputation and high treatment standards have enabled their practice to grow from strength to strength, and patients now even attend from interstate and overseas, as they value the expertise and ethical care provided by Dr Phillip Swainsbury and Dr Renae Welsh.

The main aim is to provide high-quality dentistry, in a caring and comfortable environment for the patient. We achieve this by having a wonderful team of staff members who are friendly, reliable, and well-trained. We use advanced technology, like digital radiography and intra-oral scanning, to ensure the patient receives the most efficient and up-to-date treatment possible. We listen to the needs and wants of our patients, and discuss with them the various options that are available for their treatment, as modern dentistry provides patients with treatment choices that can be customised to their individual situation. Above all, we make every effort to ensure that patients have a healthy mouth and that they keep their teeth for as long as possible, ideally forever. The foundation of a great smile is healthy teeth and gums, and healthy teeth and gums are also an important factor in having optimal general health.





South Morang Dental is located at 37 Gorge Rd, South Morang (on the corner of Briar Crt).
