Dr. James Wong

Your Richmond Dentist with a Passion for Smiles

Dr. James Wong is our resident expert in crafting beautiful, confident smiles through dental implants and wisdom teeth extractions. 

With almost  20years of experience, he combines his surgical finesse with a gentle touch, ensuring a comfortable and positive experience for every patient. Honing his skills across private clinics in Melbourne (and leading a successful practice in South East Melbourne), what truly sets him apart is his journey – a journey that began serving regional communities in Wangaratta and culminated in his dedication to Richmond for the past six years.

Dr. Wong’s passion for dentistry extends far beyond procedures. He thrives on building genuine connections with his patients, understanding their unique needs and aspirations. Whether it’s a brighter smile, improved oral health, or a complete smile makeover, Dr. Wong takes a personalized approach, ensuring every treatment plan reflects your individual goals.

As a proud father of three energetic kids, Dr. Wong understands the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle. This philosophy translates into his dental practice, where he champions preventative care and minimally invasive techniques for long-term oral health success.

Beyond the clinic, Dr. James Wong is deeply rooted in the Richmond community. He actively participates in local initiatives, reflecting his commitment to the well-being of his patients and neighbors.

Dr. Judith Ong

Your Smile Architect with a Warm Touch

Dr. Judith isn’t just passionate about dentistry; she’s passionate about creating beautiful smiles with minimal discomfort and maximum results. Since graduating from Melbourne University in 2005, she’s dedicated herself to exceeding patient expectations for over 19 years.

Dr. Judith brings a wealth of experience, having honed her skills in rural Victoria, various private clinics across Australia, and even leading a successful practice in southeast Melbourne before joining our team.

Her true passion lies in cosmetic dentistry, with a particular expertise in Invisalign treatment.  With her keen eye for detail, she focuses on ensuring your new smile perfectly complements your facial features.

But Dr. Judith’s expertise goes beyond technical skill. Her warm and inviting personality instantly puts patients at ease, making even the most apprehensive individual feel comfortable. It’s no wonder her patients consistently rave about their experience.

Dr. Judith is more than just a dentist; she’s your smile architect, dedicated to clinical excellence and seeing you light up the world with confidence.

When she’s not transforming smiles, Dr. Judith is a busy mom of three, spending weekends on adventures with her (not so) little ones. She’s also a self-proclaimed foodie, always on the lookout for Melbourne’s next hidden culinary gem. So, if you have any restaurant recommendations, be sure to share them during your appointment!

Dr. Shivani Kamalainathan

Your Gentle Guide to a Healthy Smile

Dr. Shivani isn’t just a dentist; she’s a compassionate advocate for your oral health journey. Since graduating with her Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Adelaide in 2014, her expertise has blossomed across various dental disciplines.

However, Dr. Shivani’s true passion lies in restorative dentistry, where she empowers patients and helps them overcome any anxieties they may have about dental procedures. Her gentle and calming approach puts even the most apprehensive patient at ease, making every visit a positive experience.

Driven by a commitment to excellence, Dr. Shivani dedicates herself to providing the highest quality care. She believes every patient deserves the best possible treatment, crafted with expertise and delivered with professionalism. Her dedication extends beyond the clinical setting, as she constantly seeks new ways to improve her skills and knowledge.

When Dr. Shivani isn’t transforming smiles, you might find her exploring new destinations with loved ones or staying active with running or pilates. This zest for life and personal well-being translates into her patient care, where she fosters a positive and comfortable environment for everyone.

So, whether you need restorative solutions or simply a dentist who understands your anxieties, Dr. Shivani is here to guide you towards a healthier, brighter smile.
