Most dental professionals recommend that you visit the dentist at least twice a year, or every six months. This allows your dentist to monitor your teeth and gums for any changes or problems, and to give your teeth a professional cleaning. However, if you have a history of dental problems, you may need to visit the dentist more often.
During a regular check-up, your dentist will clean your teeth and check for any signs of tooth decay or gum disease. They will also assess your risk for other dental problems, such as oral cancer. In addition, your dentist may take X-rays of your teeth and mouth to look for any hidden problems.
Seeing a dentist regularly is important because it allows them to catch any problems early on. This can help to avoid more serious dental problems down the road, and can also save you money on treatment costs. In addition, regular dental visits can help to improve your overall oral health.
We strive to establish rapport and trust to help you feel completely confident on your smile transformation journey.
Dr. Daniel Maryanovsky
Founder and Principal Dentist

Determined to foster a sense of community, Dr. Daniel is now a faculty member at La Trobe University and co-founded ‘General Dental Residency’, the largest provider of education for early career dentists in Australia.
Dr. Daniel’s greatest passion is the interplay between the artistry, science, and engineering of a smile. Seeing these elements come together daily, whether it be through a simple filling or a complex transformation, is what motivated Dr. Daniel to found Studio Smiles. As a people person himself, Dr. Daniel believes in a relationship driven approach to dental care and likes to take the time to get to know his patients. It is this personal approach and attention to detail which builds trust and gives Dr. Daniel’s patients the confidence to have their smile taken care of.
Outside of Studio Smiles, you’ll find Daniel ballroom dancing, experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen or having a hit of tennis on the court.
Dr. Daniel is a leading member of the following organisations:
Dr Poli Gunaridis
Dr Poli is one of the most experienced dental surgeons in Melbourne, working exclusively in the field of dental implants.
Since graduating from the University of Queensland, Dr Poli Gunaridis has pursued advanced training in dental implant and reconstructive surgery. After many years in the field, Dr Poli has become a leading expert in surgical extractions, dental implants, bone grafting, and all-on-4.
With an abundance of knowledge to share, Dr Poli has given both local and international lectures to other aspiring dentists on the topics of implants and graft procedures. This is something he is truly passionate about.

Dr Barry Creighton
With a Bachelor in Dental Surgery and a specialisation in Conscious Sedation & Pain Control from The University of Sydney, Dr Barry Creighton has over 20 years experience in the field.
Dr Barry provides dental sedation services to our patients at Studio Smiles, which means patients can have their ‘sleep’ dentistry done in-house.
Barry’s truly passionate about creating a comfortable space for those who tend to feel anxious when visiting the dentist. In 2014 he was awarded the Dentistry Achievement Award by the Australian Dental Association for recognition of his efforts in the dental world.
In his spare time, you’ll find Barry completing volunteer work as a Paramedic and participating as an active member of the Australian Society of Dental Anaesthesiology.
Dr. Sabrina Escuza
Dr. Sabrina Escuza takes great pride in providing a calm environment where patients feel safe to express their needs, and comfortable to ask questions. Empowering you to take control of your oral health journey is her number one priority. She will thoroughly explain your conditions, how they came to be, and what treatment options are available to meet your health or aesthetic goals. Each patient is unique, and she will strategically tie all the aspects of dentistry into an individual journey that will work best for you. It doesn’t matter if it’s a check up, or a complete change that you’re seeking – she will look after you.
Florida, USA is where home is for Dr. Sabrina. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Melbourne, where she graduated with honours and an achievement award from the prestigious Delta Sigma Delta dental fraternity. Eight years of uni has made her addicted to education – she is fluent in Spanish, has studied philosophy and French, and now spends her free time learning about the most modern dental treatment modalities through continued professional development courses.
Dr. Sabrina finds great joy in the intersections of dentistry – healthcare and artistry, function/aesthetics and mental health, communication and comfort. She is meticulous with the design of a smile, considering everything from the physics of your bite to the color of the porcelain. One of her favorite areas is where surgery meets prosthetics – sometimes losing a very broken down tooth means creating a healthy space for a beautiful replacement that will get you eating without pain and smiling without shame.
Apart from dentistry, Sabrina (not so) secretly thinks she is a master chef, and can be found trying to feed her friends the excessive amount of food she cooks. She loves music, a good picnic in the sun, and her dog, Nile.
