Establishing a Foundation for a Lifetime of Good Oral Health

Meet the Team at Measham Kid’s Dental

Measham Kid’s Dental has an experienced and caring dental team. Sandra, the principal dentist, opened the purpose-built practice in 2014 with a vision of offering affordable private treatment in a friendly, approachable, and professional way. Since then our practice has grown mainly through personal recommendation. We take great pride in being a source of comfort, reassurance, and confidence for our patients, which is reflected in our values statement below:

We personally introduce, explain, and complete each therapy for each patient and encourage our patients to be active in making decisions regarding their treatment. Sandra and her team invite you to come and visit our practice where you can witness firsthand our commitment to our patients.
