General dentistry is a branch of medicine that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral health conditions. Dentists who practice general dentistry may provide a wide range of services, including routine teeth cleanings, fillings, and X-rays. Some dentists may also specialise in specific areas of care, such as orthodontics or periodontics.
A dental visit typically begins with a consultation to discuss your oral health history and any concerns you may have. This will be followed by a physical exam of your teeth and gums. Depending on the findings of the exam, your dentist may recommend one or more treatment options. In some cases, no treatment may be necessary.
Some of the most common general dentistry procedures include teeth cleanings, fluoride treatments, fillings, crowns and bridges. These procedures are designed to improve the health of your teeth and gums and to prevent further damage. General dentists may also recommend more specialised procedures, such as root canals or dental implants, depending on your individual needs.
We strive to establish rapport and trust to help you feel completely confident on your smile transformation journey.

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.

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.
