Full Range of Treatments

We provide a full range of dental treatments in our modern dental surgery in Chermside.  From dental restorations and cosmetic dental care to surgery and emergency dental procedures.

There has been a Chermside dentist here at 812 Gympie Road since the 1950’s when there was a tram stop at the corner of Hamilton and Gympie Roads. How times have changed since then. The best restorations for front teeth were Gold which was very fashionable and very few people got to old age keeping most of their own teeth. Now the emphasis is on cosmetic white restorations and loosing teeth is unusual. In fact Dental Hospitals today have great difficulty finding patients for dental students to make full dentures for!

Dr Martin Jest purchased the surgery and became a Chermside dentist in October 2002, after having moved up from Murwillumbah, NSW where he had been working for about seven years. Since that time we have gradually expanded the patient base having people come to us from places as wide apart as Weipa, Toowoomba and The Whitsundays. We even have those that live and work overseas coming back to visit their families in Brisbane and have dental treatment here! The Surgery has a General Dentistry base with solid emphasis on helping all members of the family from childhood to maturity. We love to give time to people and make sure that we treat you in an understanding and gentle way.

Dr Martin Jest is originally English by birth and qualified at King’s College Dental School in London in 1986. He met his Physiotherapist wife Bronwyn when she was on a working holiday in London and they eventually married and moved to Australia in 1990. Dr Martin Jest has since become an Australian citizen and has three Aussie children.

Our aim at the Surgery is to make your dental experience as pleasant as practically possible. I hope that by doing that I can continue to be known as Queensland’s “Most Sensitive Dentist”.
