Making brighter smiles in Mildura since 1981!
Welcome to Lime Dental, conveniently located at 160 Lime Ave, Mildura. This clinic was established originally in Langtree Avenue back in the 50s by Dr Des James. In 1981 Dr Andrew Swincer took over and continued servicing the people of Sunraysia until 2009. During this time the clinic was moved to its current location in Lime Avenue. In 2009 the current owners Dr Paul Nakhla and Dr Rachael Charles commenced their practice here. Our aim has always been to provide the best dental treatment options available with a full range of treatment available. We understand that each patient is an individual with different circumstances and needs, and we tailor your treatment to suit you and your needs. Here, our professionals know that dental health is not just about white smiles: it’s about having strong teeth and healthy gums. It’s about prolonging the simple joy of eating delicious things! Our mission is to help our patients accomplish these goals in a painless, compassionate, and efficient way.
We aim to educate our patients in a safe environment while offering them necessary comprehensive care. We understand that many people have anxiety about dental treatment, so we created a soothing environment and our friendly staff can discuss your treatment with you to help relieve your fears. With our network of experienced dentists and specialists, we aim to give our patients the best care in the District.
