Dr Franck Page

Dentist - Special Interest: Implant Dentistry & Aesthetics

BDSc (Hons), Mclin Dent (Implants)

Dr Franck Page

Dr Franck Page graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery with Honours at the University of Queensland in 1993. He has a special interest in dental implant treatments and strives to achieve aesthetic results for his patients. Franck is also the CEO and clinical mentor of 15 Dental Practices on the Gold Coast. He describes his work with Coastal Dental Care as a mutually beneficial experience and helps to keep his zest for dentistry.

Dr Page has completed Surgical Implant Training with Professor Patrick Henry at the Branemark Centre in Perth. Prof Henry has over 20 years’ experience in implant prosthodontics and surgery. Franck enjoys travelling the world learning from a multitude of clinicians. Every year, he visits both the US and Europe for hands-on courses with the world’s premier dental practitioners.

Dr Franck Page is also a trainer in the Nobel Biocare Implant system. He regularly lectures around Australia on the subject and is one of the first dentists who graduated with their Masters in Clinical Dental Implants in 2012.

Franck loves dentistry because it combines both science and art. He enjoys the social aspect of dentistry as well, in terms of meeting new people and being able to make a genuine difference in their life.

Dr Franck Page & Dentistry

After both of Dr Franck Page's older siblings followed a medical career, he decided to do something different… and became a dentist. He realised early on he had a great aptitude for the work and quickly built his own practice.

Dentistry is practiced all around the world and often relies on the clinician “tinkering” with a problem they are faced with. No teeth are alike, and no smile is the same. This means every patient is unique. For this reason, Dr Page believes dentistry creates exciting challenges and rewarding moments of success.

The outcome Franck hopes to achieve with his patients varies. It can be as simple as a thank you in form of “Vinaka Dr Franck” from his Fijian patients to tears of joy from someone who hasn’t been able to smile for years. He looks forward to going to work on Mondays and loves sharing these experiences with his wonderful staff members.

Dr William Dear

Dentist - Special Interest: Restorative Dentistry & Microscope Enhanced Dentistry

B.D.S MClinDent (Prosthodontics)

Dr William Dear

Dr William Dear was born in London but grew up on the Gold Coast. A keen soccer player, William dreamt of becoming a professional in England. He moved there after finishing school to trial with clubs. After a year spent in England, homesickness drove him back to the Gold Coast where he began studying for a Bachelor of Science at Griffith University.

It was during this time that a trip to a local dentist inspired him to consider dentistry as a career. This dentist kindly allowed William to sit in and observe him for a few days. After completing his Bachelor of Science, William completed his Bachelor of Dental Surgery at Sydney University in 2004. He returned home to the Gold Coast that same year, commenced working at Coastal Dental Care Runaway Bay and never looked back, becoming a partner in the business 2011.

Through his caring, gentle approach and passion for performing quality dentistry, William has built up a strong following of patients on the northern end of the Gold Coast. Possessing a keen eye for detail and a light touch, he excels at aesthetic and delicate cases. William loves the combination of art and science required in restorative dentistry and has completed a Master’s degree in Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics at King’s College London, graduating with distinction.

Dr William Dear & Dentistry

Another area of interest for William is microscope enhanced dentistry. Using an operating microscope, oral structures can be magnified up to 20 times. This allows earlier detection of cracked teeth and tooth decay, more conservative treatment, improved aesthetics and greater precision when performing restorative dentistry. The improved vision provided by an operating microscope is also indispensable when performing root canal treatment. This is an additional area of dentistry in which William has a particular interest.

A member of the Australian Dental Association, William is committed to continuing education. He regularly attends lectures and seminars to ensure that his knowledge and skills are up to date. In addition, William mentors’ students  in the Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics Master’s programme at King’s College London. He is a clinical mentor for Coastal Dental Care and lectures for the Australian Institute of Continuing Education in Dentistry.

Outside of work, William is a family man and loves spending time with his wife and two young boys. He is a keen surfer and an enthusiastic (though very average) golfer who still loves his soccer. He is a big supporter of his beloved Chelsea Football Club. Other interests include music, reading and travelling.
