In Australia, the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) states that the “Specialist Prosthodontist” title can only be used by those accredited to practice in the recognised Speciality of Prosthodontics.”
A prosthodontist specialises in reconstructive dentistry, using prosthetic teeth to restore both tooth functionality and the aesthetics. I work to restore natural teeth where possible, as conserving your own teeth is not only better for your health, but will be better for your pocket.
Our Specialist Areas
Prosthodontists are best used when you require missing teeth and connected tissue to be replaced and want it done by a board-registered specialist, all in one place.
As a prosthodontist specialist in Sydney, I can help you with many issues you may have, but here are a few common areas:
- Dental implants
- Servicing or reconstructing a tooth implant
- Temporomandibular joint and masticatory muscle disorders
- To dampen teeth and gum hypersensitivity
- Dento-facial trauma and rehabilitation after corrective jaw surgery
- Correcting congenital and developmental defects of the teeth and jaws
This is not to say that general dentists cannot assist in some of these areas, however, depending on the complexity of your case you may want to see me for many of the same reasons you see any specialist dentist– I have specialist dentist knowledge and skill that goes beyond a general practitioner who has to have a much broader interest of practice.

Dental Surgery With Designer Smiles
As a specialist prosthodontist I offer some fundamental differences from general dentists in Sydney. Firstly, my education is far more extensive, with years of extra training in my area of specialised choice and I continue to extend my knowledge and skills in this specialised area.
You can also feel secure in knowing that as a prosthodontist specialist , I have seen many cases with your particular challenge, whilst the generalist may not have had such extensive experience with your particular problem.
The second advantage is that I will have access to all the necessary equipment. With every patient requiring something different, it is difficult for a general dentist to own and operate all the different equipment needed to treat your case.
What our Clients Say!
I've been a customer of Designer Smiles for over 20 years and I cannot say enough good things about them! From the moment you walk into the office, you are greeted with a warm and friendly atmosphere that immediately puts you at ease. The staff is knowledgeable, professional, and caring. They use the latest technology and take the time to explain everything. I highly recommend them!
Dr Sarkis is the maestro of cosmetic dentistry….for years I suffered with 2 slightly darker front teeth due to a childhood accident. I’ve had composite veneers before but nothing compared to the composite veneers Dr Sarkis did……now I feel so confident smiling again……Dr Sarkis I can’t thank you enough…
Quite literally the best dentist I’ve been to in a lifetime. Dr Natasha Koelmeyer specifically is just a wonderfully kind and gentle Doctor. Must also mention that the head specialist here is also second to none. Their knowledge (goodness they know their stuff) their approach, their kind and gentle manner - my daughter actually enjoys going to the dentist. They’ve got a really considered patient centric mentality. I wouldn’t go anywhere else, every single person there including the reception staff is a star. Thank you Designer Smiles!
My journey with Dr Sarkis began about 10 years ago. I did not realise that I had lacked self confidence and shone away from "my true smile". Dr Sarkis was honest, reassuring and professional throughout my process and not only was he able to achieve that perfect smile but achieve same without compromising the health of my teeth and gums.The ongoing care at Designer Smiles is 5 star whether it is a routine check, clean minor or major dentistry. Thank you Dr Sarkis and also your team.
I found Designer Smiles from one of their YouTube videos showcasing the Icon treatment to fix white spots on teeth. Dr. Sarkis Nalbandian's consultation provided me with a thorough plan and showed me how their practise could give me predicable results for my concerns. I knew I was in safe hands. I had Kristy Gupta perform both of my procedures and she was very professional and so kind. I am very happy with my results!
I cannot express how grateful I am for Sarkis and the team at Designer Smiles. Around 11 years ago my life changed when Sarkis first transformed my smile with composite veneers. This month, with my original teeth in tact I returned to have my composite veneers upgraded to porcelain. I was amazed that Sarkis and his team could do this without an injections, no pain and whilst still keeping my original teeth in tact. I absolutely love the result and I would highly recommend that anyone that is unhappy with their smile in any way, must visit designer smiles
Started my treatment with the team at Designer Smiles in 2019. Had other dental treatments including Maxillofacial, expanders, straightening and gum grafting but out of all the procedures and surgeries Dr. Sarkis was the key as he was applying the ‘finishing product’ which included composite veneers. I am gobsmacked by the incredible job done. He talks the talk and definitely walks the walk. And his support team there are simply incredible and make you feel part of a family not just another dental clinic to take your money. Can not recommend highly enough. Customer for life here!!
