Dr Rosemary Phillipos and the Care For Smiles Team

Gentle Caring Female Dentist, Fairfield

Dr Rosemary Phillipos. Gentle female family dentist. Fairfield

Care For Smiles. A small, modern, independent family dental clinic, located in the Melbourne suburb of Fairfield, where dentistry is practiced by female dentists in a caring, gentle manner. We provide comprehensive and affordable family and cosmetic dental care to the Fairfield, Thornbury, Alphington, Northcote and near communities.

Dr Priti Rosemary Phillipos, a local resident, and the Care For Smiles Team take pride in offering the best family and cosmetic dental care in a relaxed, friendly, non-clinical atmosphere. We are a small, independent, owner-operated dental practice without the corporate overheads of larger practices. Instead, we take the time to get to know our patients and to understand their individual needs and dental care requirements. We are passionate about improving and maintaining your oral health, in partnership with you for a smile that feels and looks great.
