Welcome to

The Extra Smile

The choice of our dental brand, epitomizes the core philosophy of our very being – going the extra mile

About

The pursuit of being the best we can be, originated from a young age where we were driven to excel in our educational accomplishments, culminating in our qualifying with distinction in dentistry in 1989. Our drive to go to the extra mile literally extends to our greatest passion of running the extra mile. Despite personal and physical goals, our ultimate energy is directed towards going the extra mile for our patients, family and friends as we regard relationships as the cornerstone of existence. Going the extra mile is, in no way, limited to our personal ambitions but extends into the professional arena. Commencing our dental practice in 1990, we are proud to have shared long standing relationships with our patients, having served their needs for almost three decades. At the heart of this service lies our personal core values of care and kindness, complimented with our professional values of :

Dr Julie Gecelter and Dr Rob Soicher epitomises the character and mission of The Extra Smile Dental Studio.

Perfection

Sensitivity to people’s pain and anxieties

​Eliminating dental phobia (especially with children)

Keeping up to date with the latest trends and developments.

We strive to live these values with each patient by forging one-on-one relationships that deal with the individual holistically as the mouth is often the window to the body. We like to think we offer a more comprehensive and personal engagement with each patient – making us uniquely different from your traditional dentist. Given our emphasis on relationships, we ultimately desire to nurture each patient as our own children – when you are in our dental chair, you are our very only child – as, indeed, each patient is a child in the dental chair and thus feels helpless and scared
