About Us

Our Story

Camira Dental was founded in 1992 by the current owner-operators, Bryan and Ros Dowse. At the time, there was no dentist local to the Camira area and the developing Springfield corridor. Bryan, a qualified dentist and an Ipswich local, saw the opportunity to start a clinic that offers quality dental services to the local area.

Over time, the business has grown to employ 3 dentists and a team of dental assistants. Meanwhile, Ros looks after business operations behind the scenes.

Our purpose is to offer a trusted dental care service to the local community. We aim to make every dental visit a positive one. Our dentists use innovative pain-free techniques and explain treatments to you in detail. Priding ourselves on offering honest advice, the welfare of our patients is our priority.

Highly Experienced Dentists

Our Assistants

Our Dental Assistants are all encouraged to attend college and achieve Certificate III in Dental Assisting.

When you call our practice, you'll be connected to a person and not an answering machine. The high level of training our assistants have means they'll be able to help you with most of your enquiries. A certificate 3 in dental assisting is a 1-year part-time vocational course with on-site training to obtain the necessary skills for the profession.

Skills such as competency in infection control, practice management, and chairside assisting are mandatory requirements.
