Our Practice

Lyneham Dental Care has been serving the Canberra community for more than 20 years, developing a reputation for advice you can trust. Our practice was founded in 1993 by Dr. Max Tam and continued by Dr. Patrick Huang since 2011. We are an independent and family owned dental practice, providing you the personal service you deserve. We have built our foundations on exceptional care, dedicating our time to meet your individual dental needs. Our mission is to have lasting relationships based on trust and respect with all our patients both existing and new.

Our Commitment To Safety and Quality For Your Peace Of Mind

Our highly skilled dentists are strongly committed to continual education to provide you the best professional care. We pride ourselves on offering a wide range of comprehensive dental services using the latest technology available. Our practice is equipped with electronic health record systems including digital radiographic imaging that minimises radiation exposure. To elevate the level of precision during dental procedures, we are one of the few general practices to have the advantage of microscope technology. The high magnification makes minute details and the finest structures clearly visible to our dentists and thus improving the quality of your diagnosis and treatment. We also have the latest in CEREC technology, allowing full ceramic reconstruction of your tooth in a single visit. With the use of highly accurate imaging techniques, computer aided design and aided milling, we can provide you restortations that protect and preserve your tooth's structural integrity. CEREC is currently the most advanced, most conservative and yet the most cost-effective restoration you can have.

Our commitment to quality, compliance and safety also extends to our strong focus on workplace safety. We are proudly an accredited dental practice and meet the requirements developed by the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards. In addition we are compliant with the ACT Infection Control Legislation and Regulation. This means your mind can be at peace, knowing we provide you the highest calibre in safety, quality and care.

We genuinely care about your comfort and have endeavoured to create a calming environment. Our friendly professional team at Lyneham Dental Care are committed to work with you to understand your needs and keep you smiling.
