Quattro Dental has a strong claim to uniqueness – the clinic is run by twin brothers married to sisters, all of them highly qualified dentists.

Donald and Michael Chin and wives Arlene Esmaquel and Angelica Esmaquel-Chin have decades of combined experience as dentists, having graduated from the University of Melbourne and the University of Adelaide respectively.

They’ve relished bringing their skills to their community during the past eight years or so.

The clinic recently achieved Quality Innovation Performance accreditation which, says Michael, is an acknowledgment of their hard work and dedication to excellence.

“Our clinic is very relaxed and friendly,” Michael says, “but there’s no compromise in the level of care all our patients receive.

“We provide longer appointments to have a more personal and individualised approach.

“This means we get to welcome new patients into the practice and help them get settled.

“We discuss treatments and treatment options without rushing, which in turn means a more relaxed environment for everyone.”

Quattro Dental offers a wide range of dental services, including tooth restorations and replacements, implant placements and implant-retained dentures, as well as veneers, crowns and bridges.

Orthodontic treatments are provided to address underlying causes of a developing crowded dentition through Myobrace therapy.

“For teenagers, we use the Fastbraces system to correct crowding,” Arlene says.

“And for adults who don’t want to wear braces and wires on their teeth, we now offer ClearCorrect aligners that can straighten teeth without braces.”

The clinic is a preferred provider of most major health funds and accepts government health initiative vouchers for the Child Dental Benefits Scheme (for children up to 17 years old).

Afterpay and Denticare payment options are available and appointments can be made online (see website below).

Patients can request referrals to on-site speech pathology, podiatry, counselling and other allied health services.
