Dr Michelle Ever Juan was raised in Manila, Philippines where she earned the degree Doctor of
Dental Medicine in 2005 from Centro Escolar University. She also achieved the distinction of being
ranked third in the National Dental Board Examinations for general dental practitioners.
Michelle then pursued further education. She was awarded her Master of Science in Dental Education
in 2008 from the same institution.
In 2009, Michelle moved to Australia and in 2010 she received her qualifications from the Australian
Dental Council and began practicing general dentistry in Sydney.
With an interest in Restorative Dentistry, particularly Cosmetic and Minimally Invasive treatments,
Michelle is keen on preventative and early intervention, focusing on the close relationship between
general and oral health.
As part of this aspect of dentistry, Michelle is enthusiastic about the use of tooth coloured restorative
materials, also known as composite fillings. With its multitude of applications for dental treatment,
together with aesthetic results, it is one of Michelle’s favourite materials for restoring teeth to health,
combined with a pleasing cosmetic outcome.
Michelle is also a qualified Invisalign® provider, enjoying the challenging and rewarding nature of
making a difference in people’s smiles with the use of removable sequential aligner technology as an
alternative to conventional fixed orthodontics. She is also trained and experienced in the fabrication of
sleep apnea devices (Mandibular Advancement Splint, Somnodent ®)
Michelle has completed the Master Implant Program at The Brener Institute here in Sydney, which is a prosthetic and surgical training course focused on the incorporation of implant dentistry as a crucial part of our modern dental profession. She is also a member of the International Team for Implantology (ITI), an international association of dental professionals dedicated to learning and fostering knowledge within the profession through the sharing of educational resources.
She is passionate about learning, and strives to maintain current knowledge and techniques to better serve the community by attending continuing dental education courses.
Michelle is a member of the Australian Dental Association.
Nikolaos started his career in dentistry as a Dental Technician back in 1989. As a technician, he specialised in the field of ceramic crown and bridgework, including dental implants. Nikolaos was highly regarded by dentists and colleagues as a very skilful technician with a great eye for detail.
After several years, of practice as a dental technician, Nikolaos realised that he would feel more fulfilled by interacting more directly with patients. He therefore decided to further his education at the Westmead Hospital training centre, where he completed the Diploma of Dental Therapy in 1999. He thus became very experienced in most facets of children’s clinical dentistry. It was during this period of his life that the need for prevention of dental disease was instilled into Nikolaos, and his dedication to this earned him a High Distinction in Oral Health Promotion. Due to this, upon graduation, he was presented with an award. He was the first to be granted such an award.
Nikolaos then decided to extend his education even further, and qualified for the Diploma of Dental Hygiene, in 2001, achieving a distinction in periodontics.
Since 2001 Nikolaos has worked in private practice, joining the The Bondi Dentists in July 2002. He has become an integral part of the practice, and he is responsible for our preventative maintenance programme. His personal enthusiasm and vigilance when attending to our patient’s preventative needs, which is essential for modern dentistry, has helped many patients over many years now. Often patients have commented, “If I met you years ago, I would still have all my teeth”.
The preventative dentistry programme includes:
- Management of periodontal disease. (ie: gum and bone deterioration)
- Management of erosive tooth wear and tooth decay
- Saliva testing and dietary advice
- General oral health care
- Implant care and maintenance
- Denture care
- Management of halitosis (bad smelling breath)
Nikolaos is an active member of the Dental Hygienists Association of Australia and has served as a committee member of the NSW branch since 2002. He has held positions in the Continuing Education Committee, including serving as president for 3 years, completing his tenure at the end of 2015. Nikolaos has also been vigilant with ongoing education and continues to attend seminars and conferences to keep up with the ever changing world of modern dentistry.
