Mission Statement​

Tony McClelland’s Philosophy statement and Commitment

 LEADERSHIP

 Tony McClelland established his private practice in Townsville, in August 1990 and had consistently provided excellent dental care. Don Fraser joined Tony in 1997, and together they provide gentle dental care. 

Life and dentistry are complex, we distil the important facets to simply provide our patients with optimal dental health in a fun, caring environment. 

OUR PEOPLE 

Our staff are the heart of our practice, our dentists and assistants and receptionists work closely together to be able to perform high quality work. We aim to develop a work environment where communication, loyalty, honesty, commitment and love, thrive. 

Over the years we continue to develop systems to ensure appropriate infection control standards are achieved. We have routine procedures that prevent the transmission of infectious diseases. The use of self-monitoring and properly maintained checklists ensures safe standards are met routinely. 

PATIENT COMMITMENT 

Our patients give us our reason to be here! We aim to meet dental challenges and succeed in developing excellent oral health in our regular patients. 

We will not lose sight of our role as dentists and will discuss with patients how to develop and sustain their optimum oral health. In this surgery we enjoy having our patients in our lives, and hope they enjoy being here. 

EXCELLENCE

 Our practice has a record of excellence in the areas of endodontics, hygiene and tooth restoration. Clinical skill and experience in these three areas is essential to provide general dental care.

 Some dental fields for example oral surgery, dental implants and orthodontics we will not provide here. We believe for these services patients require a dentist who has chosen to study and work everyday in these specialist fields. We will refer patients to other dental specialists if we believe it is in their best interest. 

SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS ARE TO BE FOUND IN THE WAY WE LEAD OUR LIVES EVERYDAY.
