About our practice
Our practice was started as "Glenorchy Dental" by Dr Ernest Dixon in 1970 and has now been operating continuously in the same location for over 40 years. The practice was purchased 2007 by Dr Janine Crotty, where Dr Dixon continued as principal dentist until the end of 2011. Soon after Dr. Dixon's departure the practice was purchased by Dr Martin Fernando.
Dr Martin Fernando was born in Hobart, where he lived his whole life in Hobart aside from the 5 years he spent studying dentistry in Adeiade. On his return from Adelaide in 2003 he worked in a prominent Hobart CBD practice for 10 years before purchasing this practice.
Martin has always had a strong interest in providing quality affordable dental care to the people of Hobart. With the help of his practice managing wife, Kathrine, he has introduced a number of changes to the way that we provide dental services and our practice and word-of-mouth continues to grow.
Over the past four years we have changed many thing including the practice name. We have established provider relationships with many of the private health funds and have made dentistry accessable and affordable to the people of Hobart. Over the past 48 months we have expanded from a single dentist practice, to now employing 8 dentists and a full time prosthetist. We continue to enjoy being able to look after the dental needs of our patients.
In 2015 due to increasing demand we were invited to take over Alan Carlton Dental in the middle of the Hobart CBD and are now operating our practice from two locations.
