When Tendler Dental Surgery was first established over 20 years ago, the goal was to afford the local community a dentist in Melbourne that was affordable, accessible, highly qualified and offered a range of services to patients of all ages. Today, while the look and feel of Tendler Dental has changed, the goal remains the same. Focussing primarily on family dentistry, Tendler offers specialised advanced services including teeth whitening, dental implants and sleep apnoea treatment solutions.
Tendler Dental’s Dr Samuel Lawrence (Bachelor of Dental Science, Melbourne University) and Dr Bill Sergakis (Bachelor of Dental Science, Melbourne University) continue to set the standard in family-friendly dental services after a combined 31 years at the Hawthorn East dental surgery.
