Dr Roger Antoniazzi, Principal Dentist

"Dr Roger loves unravelling dental problems, the more complicated the better!"

Dr Roger has been practicing dentistry for over 36 years. He is a past president of both the state branch of the Australian Dental Association and the Dental Board of South Australia.

He has continued his postgraduate studies over the years to maintain and advance his dental skills and is a member of a number of professional societies in dentistry.

While providing general dental treatments, he has a special interest in the placement of dental implants and Cerec ceramic restorations, and has had extensive overseas training.

Dr Roger loves unravelling dental problems, the more complicated the better! Whether it be improving the appearance of a smile, long term dental failures, tricky pain diagnosis or dissatisfied clients from other practices; it gives him great professional satisfaction to use his experience to make them happier and healthier than when they walked in! The trick is in trying to understand the person's situation as an individual and not just "filling teeth". He enjoys the challenge of treating adults who are scared of dental treatment and have finally got the courage to do something about it!

On a personal note, he thinks he is a bit of a home handyman (dangerous!), a Sunday cappuccino cyclist, and a family man with two adult children.
