About Us

About Shepherds Hill Dental Centre in Blackwood

A home away from a dental clinic

We aim to to ensure that Shepherds Hill Dental Centre feels more like a home, rather than a sterile and clinical dental practice.

Our practice was originally architecturally designed and built as a dental clinic, which means that it could be tailor-made rather than ‘squeezing’ equipment into a pre-existing space.

It all starts with a warm and caring welcome

Meet Natalie our Practice Manger
Natalie, our practice manager, has known some of our patients for over 20 years.

Our front desk team, led by practice manager Natalie (known as Nat to everyone), will make sure you feel welcome from your very first phone call all the way up to stepping in the front door.

Nat and the team are warm, engaging, remember the little things about our patients, and treat them like friends – some of whom we have watched grow up over the last 20 years.


A non-clinical clinic? Spacious with lots of natural light

Shepherds Hill Dental Centre doesn’t have that dry ‘old-style’ clinical and sterile feel. It is more like someone’s home with warm tapestries, artwork on the walls and a water feature.

Envisage large picture windows looking out to a beautiful private garden with lots of natural light and a calming sense of space – and this is from our dental chair! You can even enjoy a movie with our video glasses we have on offer.

Your Local dentist Blackwood Adelaide is relaxing and welcoming for all ages
Our treatment rooms are modern, large and have plenty of relaxing natural light from the full picture windows that look out onto a private garden.

In this way, our practice is a relaxing place for anyone who is a bit of a dental-phobe, has had a bad experience at the dentist or gets anxious at the thought of a dental visit. It is also great for kids and their parent’s alike.

Our famed Big Red Treasure Box

We are proud that our big red Treasure Box has become a bit famous over the years. Even though it is filled with little goodies for the kids after their appointment, we still have some 20 and 30 year old patients who want to look in the red box, just as they did when they were kids.
