New dental clinic

If your pearly whites are in need of some attention then head on over to Docklands’ newest dental clinic.

Located at the base of the Channel 9 building at 717 Bourke St (enter via Aurora Lane), Southern Cross Smiles is close by for local workers and residents and is easily accessible via Southern Cross Station for those travelling on public transport.   

For patients wanting to drive to the clinic, there is convenient and secure undercover parking on Mayfield Field (access via Aurora Lane).

Southern Cross Smiles’ principal dentist, Dr Sharma, said the Docklands’ community needed a local dentist.

“This location is very happening. There are lots of people living and working here,” she said.

“Docklands is growing and so the dental needs will grow too. We can provide a health service to the community and be an integral part of it.”

The clinic opened in August and practice manager Gaurav Bhardwaj said the local community had been very welcoming.

Mr Bhardwaj holds a master’s degree in business administration and says he has extensive experience running a dental clinic in suburban Melbourne.

Principal dentist Dr Sharma said she had been a dentist for many years in the Melbourne CBD and the greater Melbourne region.

The Docklands clinic is the second practice the pair has established together and, they say, it employs the latest technologies and innovations in the dental industry to deliver superior dental care at an affordable price.  

They said Southern Cross Smiles was a state-of-the art dental clinic both in terms of the equipment used and the interior layout.

According to Mr Bhardwaj, at Southern Cross Smiles “the most important principle is still empathetic patient care at a fair price.”

“Our aim is to provide exemplary dental healthcare using cutting edge technologies,” Mr Bhardwaj said.

Southern Cross Smiles offers a range of dental services including preventative dentistry and restorative dentistry. The clinic also offers in-house mouth x-rays.

According to Dr Sharma, Southern Cross Smiles specialises in cosmetic dentistry and full mouth rehabilitation including braces, teeth whitening, veneers, crowns and dental implants.

The practice is also offering an opening special to patients and can provide a full check-up and clean for $199, which includes a full-mouth OPG X-ray and fluoride treatment.

“For each and every patient who takes up this offer we do a full mouth check-up, we take pictures of their teeth, we guide them through what needs to be done and how they can maintain it,” Dr Sharma said.

This clinic is also offering free dental checkups to all new patients and no gap checkups to patients with private health insurance.

You can find Southern Cross Smiles at 717 Bourke St (enter via Aurora Lane).
