Riaz Tegally

Dentist  |  BDSc

Graduating from Kings College, London, one of the world's top five dental schools, I have been privileged to acquire a wealth of experience in both public and private healthcare. Having acquired work in the UK, US, North Africa and Australia, I have developed a passion for the provision of timely, realistic and comfortable dental treatment across all disciplines of general dentistry. It is with great pleasure that I am able to offer care to the wider community and strive to deliver optimal outcomes for all who find themselves in my chair. My profession is in dental health, and I am invested in yours.

Dentist  |  BDS

Dr Rupen Patel is a friendly, chatty and approachable dentist, ensuring his patients feel at comfortable and at ease when visiting. Dr Patel’s interest in dentistry started when he was in school; he finds the ability to help his patients improve their health highly rewarding. He provides general dentistry treatments, but particularly enjoys restorative dentistry including bonding, adhesives, composites and crowns. Outside of work, Dr Patel enjoys maintaining a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise – attending the gym when he can. And on the sporting side, he likes playing tennis.

Dentist  |  BDSc (Hons)

I first came to National Dental Care Unwin as a patient! With encouragement from my dentist, David, I went on to study a Bachelor of Dental Science at the University of Queensland graduating with First Class Honours in 1994. I worked in Roma for the government and school dental service before joining Unwin Dental Group in 1998. In my spare time I enjoy holidaying with family.
