    We're excited to announce that we have changed our name from Smile Dental to Cameron&Co.

    Cameron was born and bred in Townsville and we've been here on Ross River Road for nearly twenty years now.

    So, we decided it was about time we were on a first name basis. We're still family owned and operated, by the same team in the same place – and we look forward to seeing you the next time you pop in.

    Upon Dr Wolfgang Evers’ retirement after 15 years, the search was on to fill some very big (and much-loved) shoes. Forty-two applicants from across Australia applied for the role of associate dentist at the practice but the successful candidate, Dr Stuart Craig, was already working in Townsville.

    Hailing from Rockhampton, Dr Craig was a member of James Cook University’s first graduating class of students with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree in 2013. After completing his studies, Dr Craig returned to Rockhampton, where he worked for a year before moving to Townsville in November 2014 with his fiancé Susan.

    “Coming from Queensland and graduating from Cairns was an advantage, but most of all Stuart is a great bloke,” says marketing manager Sarah Arnold, whose husband, Dr Cameron Arnold, is the principle dentist at the practice.

    While Dr Craig enjoys all forms of dentistry, he has a special passion for restorative and cosmetic work. He is currently completing a residency in this area with Dr Tony Rotondo, who is originally from Ingham.

    “I’m keen to learn more about implant dentistry and will be dedicating my studies next year to that field,” Dr Craig says. “I also love working with children, especially since my balloon-twisting skills tend to be a hit with the kids.”

    With a relaxed and friendly approach, Dr Craig invests the time it takes to really listen to his patients’ concerns.

    “I always look at the overall health of a person’s mouth and like to focus on a comprehensive solution rather than any ‘quick fix’,” Dr Craig says. “I get real enjoyment from putting a nervous patient at ease. It’s important to me to develop lasting relationships with my patients.” 

    Dr Craig says the genuine care that Dr Arnold and the team show their patients is infectious.

    “I’m proud to now call myself a part of the team, alongside Dr Arnold, hygienists Monica and Laurelyn,” he says. “A smile is the first thing we notice in a person and having the ability to improve and sometimes even give back someone’s smile is what really gets me excited at work. My biggest career highlight so far was helping a patient rebuild his smile for his daughter’s wedding. He’ll be walking her down the isle with a beaming new set of pearly whites.”

    Everyone who knows Wolfgang knows how much he loves to travel. And so we are thrilled that he is embarking on the trip of a lifetime… but teary eyed that we will be waving him goodbye at the end of April.

    We wish him well in his retirement and look forward to his stories from far afield. Good luck, congratulations and Gute Reise Dr Wolfgang Evers! We will miss you.

    This week Nancy and Fletch took some time to check out the new Water Flosser. It makes it easy to care for braces, maintain healthier gums and reduce plaque.

    But look who dropped in on them unexpectedly.

    Monica and Carly sure were lucky that this Water Flosser (and its steady jet of water) was still in the box!

    Harriet is wearing a new orthodontic appliance exclusive to Smile – which will both treat her headaches and straighten her teeth. 

    Harriet (who is Cameron and my daughter) knows all the tricks about caring for braces. Pop in and she'd be happy to show them off – and share tips on how to keep your smile fresh and what's best to eat while undergoing treatment.

    But don't delay! Orthodontics are now quicker than ever after all! And following her work experience here with us at Smile Dental, Harriet will be going on to study Nursing and Midwifery in 2014.

    You probably said four, right? In fact, Carly is playing the part of Little Miss Patient at our staff training workshop this week. 

    We're expanding our services for mums, bubs and kids and so Tessa, who is an expert in children's care, has been sharing new ideas with the team. 

    Stop by, we'd love to share them with you and your kids too!
