About Us

What sets Vivid Smile Dental Centre apart:

At Vivid Smile Dental Centre, your local Goulburn dental practice, we use the latest techniques and technology to diagnose and treat the causes of oral health problems, rather than just treating the symptoms. It is our firm belief that a better quality of life is obtained by reducing your risk for diseases rather than just treating the symptoms of the disease.

​We believe that when you are educated about your oral health issues, you will pick the best treatment options for yourself. That is why you will always be treated by the best staff who have your goals in mind. We will consistently provide you with the best quality treatment available using the best materials. You deserve nothing less! The only way to truly appreciate what we mean is to experience it for yourself.


The team at Vivid Smile are friendly and approachable and will attend to all your dental needs in an individualised way
