Personalised Service

Our comprehensive and compassionate approach to dental care allows us to have a complete understanding of your needs so we can create superior results. You will receive the best possible treatment, performed to the highest standards and in total comfort.

At Nick Sheptooha Dental Practice you should always expect the following for each and every visit:


From the moment you contact us, we will make sure that you feel welcomed and that your needs are a priority.

Your appointment will be scheduled at the soonest possible time that is convenient for you. If you have any specific needs, please mention them when making your appointment as we may need you to bring certain items to your consultation.


You will be warmly greeted upon arrival by our friendly and attentive staff who will offer you a cold refreshment while you wait in our comfortable suite. If you are a first-time patient, you will be given a few standard patient forms to fill out. You will be made to feel welcome and relaxed before being shown into one of our treatment rooms.

Your Consultation

In the treatment room, one of our experienced dentists will undertake a comprehensive examination and provide a full explanation of your needs, possible treatments and the costs. They will discuss a collaborative plan based on your personal circumstances which may involve completing the treatment all at once or in phases.

Your Treatment

The first part of our Philosophy of Care is ‘Our Aim Is No Pain’ so you can be sure that all stages of your treatment will be completed in comfort. We can use various sedation dentistry techniques to ensure that you have an enjoyable, anxiety-free and virtually painless experience. At the end of your treatment, you will view the results and if further appointments are necessary we can schedule them for you.

Our unique difference is that we care about you, your dental needs and your dental desires, and keep all these aspects in mind when assessing your smile or recommending treatments to you. Our ultimate goal is to help all our patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles and we recognise that to achieve this requires compassion and strict attention to detail.



Our Philosophy of Care


At Nick Sheptooha Dental Practice, we believe you should understand what to expect from us when you visit. Our Philosophy of Care is central to our practice and how we conduct business. Our ultimate goal is to help you understand not only what to expect at your first visit, but for all stages of your treatment.

This is what you should always expect from us:


Our Aim Is No Pain

Patient comfort is our number one priority. If you have fear or anxiety and this is preventing you from having ideal dental health, we want to change that. We can use a variety of sedation methods to ensure that you are comfortable and feel relaxed. We can also use sedation techniques if you are short on time and need to have several treatments within the one appointment.

Collaborative Care

At your consultation, we actually listen to you and your needs drive the process. We are the artists that provide the solutions. Together, we’ll make sure you are happy with the result – an ‘easy-on-the-eye’ smile that will enhance your image, personality and confidence.

Personalised Treatment

We know there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution so we give you a personalised treatment plan that is custom designed to provide the best results for you. If you need just a simple dental restoration or a more complex cosmetic treatment, you should always expect to receive first class service.

Exceeding Expectations

We want each and every one of our patients to leave us with their confidence sky high, their expectations exceeded and their dental health at the best it can be. You demand the best treatment and the best results and at Nick Sheptooha Dental Practice we deliver. Our unique approach compels us to understand your fundamental needs so you are heard and your end results superior.

At Nick Sheptooha Dental Practice we use all elements of our Philosophy of Care to provide every patient with high-quality treatments that are carried out to the highest standard.

Noreen is our exceptional Practice Manager. With many and varied years of experience in the dental industry, Noreen is a true professional in every sense of the word. She believes in delivering excellent customer service, supporting her team and keeping up to date with both professional and personal development.

I am currently focussed on reception management and in-house social media coordinating. Also studying a Bachelor of Film and Screen Media, at Griffith University, I have been assisting the team within the practice over a number of years and like to bring a modern flare and warmth to our interactions with our patients and colleagues. I enjoy watching the latest new releases in the film industry, spending time with friends and photography.

Having also worked in the banking industry, Ange is very particular and is a delight to have on the team! She has two teenage boys and the best ideas for Gluten and dairy-free recipes!


I’ve spent the last few years in Ireland and have a bit of background in cafes, charity shops and hair salons. I studied Multimedia Production where I got to do work experience for a known newspaper. Coming back to Australia, I began my journey into the dental industry only recently and yet I have learnt so much. Entering this industry has educated me on many things. Since I just entered it. I think one of the best things about this job personally is that I can improve my own oral health. Outside of work I try my best to progress with current or new skills. I hope to learn more, such as new languages very soon.


I have a certificate IV in dental assisting and have been employed in the industry for 15 years. I’ve been fortunate to have lived abroad, where I qualified in fitness and pilates instruction and taught in both Brunei and Australia. After returning to Australia I returned to dental assisting and continued teaching Pilates until the end of 2018. I enjoy all areas of general dentistry, including assisting in theatre (hospital), specialist dental periodontics, endodontics and reception. Now I’m happily assisting Dr Kristina Cain. We love achieving beautiful smiles together with cosmetic dentistry and facial injectables. Outside of work my passion and biggest joy is ballroom dancing. I also play the saxophone and write poetry. I keep active by walking daily along the beautiful Brisbane river. I have two grown up children and a beautiful rescue greyhound – Toby.


While I was is yr 12 at school a friend of mine went to PNG on a YWAM boat where they travelled into the highlands with Dentists to help the villagers with their dental hygiene. I loved hearing about it and thought that was amazing hence why I applied for a dental assistant job. I’ve now been in the industry for five years and absolutely love it. Its a great job as I have had the privilege of working with some amazing dentists and the work they provide helps so many people, its wonderful to see. Outside of work, I like to spend time with family and friends, have quiet time being creative, exploring the countryside and finding beautiful swimming water holes.
