Dr Alistair Graham

Principal Dental Surgeon

Alistair is experienced in all areas of General Dentistry and is committed to ensuring that all patients get the highest possible care, individually tailored to your needs.  Whether this means Smile Rehabilitations or complex Restorative and Cosmetic work, Alistair’s attention to detail and gentle manner will mean that your visit will be a positive one.

Alistair is widely recognised for his extensive experience in all stages of dental treatments (planning, surgical and restorative) and is a recognised Digital Smile Design (DSD) Master.

Alistair is highly qualified and experienced in the field of implant dentistry, and is one of a few dentists qualified to be able to provide patients with both the surgical and restoring phases of the treatment. This means that patients do not need to be referred to another Specialist dentist for part of their treatment. He lectures in implant dentistry and is a mentor to a number of colleagues.

Alistair qualified as a Dentist at Bristol University, England, and has done further postgraduate study at Sydney University, completing the Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry (Oral Implants). After spending 7 years working in private practice in London he moved to Australia in 2004 and made the Northern Beaches home, starting Mona Vale Dental in early 2009.
