Don't dread the dentist
We are the only dental practice in Queensland that offers intravenous sedation administered by a specialist anaesthetist.
Our expert anesthetist works exclusively with us to provide our patients with hospital grade sedation.
Please contact us if you would like any more information about this service.
Dr Kate Smith owns and operates the Dental Lounge @ Robina. (She's on the left in the photo). All her efforts, from the day she opened the practice until today, have been driven by two main desires.
- People should be able to smile without feeling embarrassed.
- The Dental Lounge @ Robina should be a lovely place where nervous patients feel safe.
Those two things have helped shape the team she has built, the dental services they provide and the environment they work in.
Dr Smith gained her degree from the University of Queensland in 2000 with honours, and has since practiced in private practices in Queensland and NSW. She also spent a period of time in South East Asia performing much needed volunteer dental work in remote villages where she met her husband. She lives nearby and enjoys a full home life with 2 kids, horses and chickens.
Dr Agatha Saric is center stage in the photo above. She joined the Dental Lounge @ Robina in June 2019. Her experience is broad, starting as a dental Hygienist in Canada, she moved back to Australia and gained her Dental degree here on the Gold Coast where she has been working as a dentist ever since. She enjoys a wide range of dental work and loves recreating natural healthy teeth, identical to those you had when they first emerged from your gums.
Dr Agatha is praised at the Dental Lounge for being the most gentle dentist anyone has ever met. If you are lucky enough to have her as your dentist, you will discover what we mean. Her calming presence will put any patient at ease.
While she is not helping our patients to smile with confidence, she is enjoys walking her dog, cooking and travelling with a few hikes thrown in for good measure. Like all our dentists - she does exceedingly healthy things in her spare time!
Dr Katelyn Symes (on the right in the photo) has been a Robina local for over 25 years, she is passionate about providing caring dentistry within the Gold Coast community. She practices all areas of general and cosmetic dentistry, taking particular pride in restoring teeth with a high level of aesthetics and natural anatomy. We are very lucky to have her as one of our full time dentists. If you have been searching for a dentist that will stay with you for the long term, then your search is over.
She is perfectly suited to treating children, they are her favorite patients. She loves making their visits fun and enjoyable and the kids are reassured by her gentle manner. That goes equally well for nervous patients, and persons with special needs.
Cristine is our super dental hygienist (when in Columbia, she can work as a dentist. unfortunately not here and unfortunately she was busy brushing her teeth when the photo above was taken). Cristina is another one of our calming personalities and loves turning patients around from nervous and anxious to confident and happy.
If you're interested in getting your teeth whitened, or you need a general checkup & clean or some minor work done, you will be in good hands with her. As an integral part of the team, she also helps our dentists with many of the more complex procedures too... so there's a good chance you'll meet her on your next visit, be sure to say 'Hi!'.
When Cristine is not at work, she's loves salsa dancing, getting to the gym and most weekends she ends up the beach with her husband and son, making the most of the Gold Coast.
