About Us


Our Philosophy of Dentistry

Narromine Shire Dental Surgery, “Your Teeth Should Last a Lifetime – Excellent dental care can assure this. Excellent dentistry is a commitment from both the doctor and the patient. For the doctor it demands a personal commitment to strive for perfection and allow adequate time to do every job right. And, it demands a personal commitment to continuing education that keeps the NSDS Team on the leading-edge of technology. At NSDS Dental your smile is our top priority … and we work hard every-day to earn our patients trust and friendship.”
