The Smiles Are Us Park Holme Story

A Generational Park Holme Practice

Dr Nowicki and his mother DruFounded in 1985, our practice was originally run by Dr Ben Nowicki, Dr Nathaniel Nowicki‘s father.  Although the family business expanded to three other locations, the late Dr Nowicki, unfortunately, passed away, and his sister (also a dentist) acquired two of the active practices.

His son, the current Dr Nowicki, who was at the time an oral health therapist, went on to complete his dental studies and take over our original practice location. If you’ve seen us in years past, you’ll be quite surprised to see how much the younger Dr Nowicki looks like his father!

Although our two-generation dental practice has been here for well over 30 years, it’s also the home where Dr Nowicki grew up. In fact, he often spent the evenings playing with his toy trains on the floor of the room that was his father’s surgery.

Modifications and Advancements in Care

As the years passed by, our building was gutted and refurbished to house a larger reception area and five operatories. We’ve invested in newer technology to provide higher quality, more efficient care to our patients, through measures and equipment such as:

  • Hospital grade sterilisation practices
  • Colour-corrected lighting in each room, for accurate shade matching
  • Soft tissue laser therapy
  • CAD/CAM digital scanning for same-day crown and bridgework
  • On-site digital X-rays and OPG scanner
  • High-resolution intraoral cameras

Oral health therapist and family of patients

Why Visiting Us Is Different

Many of our staff are from the same two families, with mothers, sisters, cousins and close friends working together in a tightly knit environment where we share our close bonds with the patients whom we serve.

Because so many families have come to us over the years, it’s been a joy to see generations of children grow up before our eyes. Our child-friendly oral health therapists make it possible for your entire family to be booked side by side.
