Why See A Specialist Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontics is a specialisation in reconstructive dentistry. A prosthodontist is a specialist who is skilled in replacing missing teeth (and associated tissues) and the restoration of natural teeth.

After graduating as a qualified dentist, Dr Sarkis Nalbandian had to undertake further full-time training in a University Masters and Doctorate program to become a board-registered specialist prosthodontist in Australia. The program takes a minimum of three years and involves further study in all facets of dentistry. Reputable universities then tested his skills.

The Australian teachings provided in-depth training in the areas of:

  • Fixed prosthodontics, both tooth and implant-supported
  • Implant surgery and implant-supported reconstructions, fixed implant teeth, overdentures
  • Aesthetic procedures
  • Complete and partial removable prosthodontics
  • Temporomandibular joint and masticatory muscle disorders
  • Dental materials and hypersensitivities
  • Dento-facial trauma and rehabilitation following corrective jaw surgery
  • Congenital and developmental defects of the teeth and jaws
  • Maxillofacial prosthodontics

The chances are that if you are a patient aged 50 or over with past dental treatments and complex dental history, you will require the services of a specialist prosthodontist.

As a specialist prosthodontist and oral surgeon, Dr Sarkis Nalbandian works closely with a ceramic technician to produce biological and compatible dental restorations, which remain serviceable in the long term. The training also includes communicating with other specialist disciplines of dentistry to deliver complex multi-disciplinary treatments. As the specialist delivering the final restoration, Dr. Sarkis Nalbandian is the coordinator of such treatment plans. As a result, he is a dental expert, trained to take a comprehensive approach in delivering complex treatment plans aimed at rehabilitating your dentition to a state of maintainable health.

Our state-of-the-art facilities include in-house laboratory CT scans, dental offices, and other diagnostic services combined with our expertise. This allows for effective and specialist dental services in a caring environment.

Ken Baumli

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…

Monica McKenzie

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!

Michelle Lacasse

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.

Christina Vergotis

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!

Winsome Kain

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

Matt Williams

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!!
