I had my expectations exceeded since I came for the first time. I had an amazing customer service and professionalism from the reception team till the end of my treatment. Specially by doctor Jack and his assistants who made me feel comfortable and provided me an outstanding treatment exceeding the result that I expected. After my experience, now I feel confident to soon have my wife’s Invisalign treatment started with doctor Jack. Thanks to everyone from Cumberland Dental Orthodontics

I was very pleased with the dental work done. Angela explained the process and stages of the work and completed the work on budget. I would refer her professional approach and that of her capable staff at Cumberland Dental to others.

The best part of my profession is transforming patients’ smiles. When I see that look of amazement on someone’s face as they realise they can smile confidently in public without holding their hand over their mouth, it really lights me up inside. This happens every day, but it is always so rewarding to see that lift in self- esteem. Some of my patients really spend a long time looking at everything in the mirror, trying to work out how the magic was done. It really does feel that I am a magician some days when you get to that big reveal and deliver that straight white smile. The funny thing is that these transformations are just part of the job, to excel at providing high quality dentistry. I am in a position of trust, someone has put their smile in my hands and believes in the skills I can provide to get the best results.

Recently I have competed in the 2022 Melbourne 70.3, Cairns Ironman and the 2022 70.3 World Championships in Utah.
