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 Mateus De Mello

Dentist - Special Interest: Microscopic Dentistry & Root Canal Treatment

B.D.S

Dr Mateus De Mello

Dr Mateus De Mello is a general dentist with special interest in root canal therapy (Endodontics). He also endeavours to use his skill set in Microscopic Dentistry. Mateus was born in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, and graduated in dentistry from the Estácio De Sá University (UNESA) in 2004.

Dr De Mello’s passion for dentistry goes back to when he was only 10 years of age. He remembers watching his uncle who was a dentist working on patients. Since then, Mateus knew dentistry was his destiny as well.

Education

At university, Mateus enjoyed all fields of dentistry from cosmetic work to surgical procedures. Half way through his degree, however, he came across root canal therapy which changed his course. Dr De Mello was invited to work in a University project called “Trauma Project”. The project looked after patients with traumatised teeth from falls, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries and other accidents. Most of the patients referred to the project required root canal therapy as their pulp tissues (nerves) had died off.

Subsequently, Dr Mateus spent a lot of time undertaking root canal procedures. He noticed how much these procedures contributed towards a positive change for his patients. This made Mateus become even more passionate about the procedure and he decided to pursue a post-graduation degree in Endodontics.

Dr Mateus De Mello became a Specialist in Endodontics (UNESA) in Brazil in 2006 after operating under a microscope for several hours. Dr De Mello worked in private practices for about 14 months before moving to the Gold Coast in Australia.

Mateus worked as a tutor for Operative Dentistry at Griffith University whilst he was studying to certify his general dentist degree. He successfully obtained his registration in Australia through the Australian Dental Council (ADC) exams in 2013.

Since, he has been delivering great work under an operating microscope. Mateus is also a member of the Australian Society of Endodontology (QLD) and of the International Association of Dental Traumatology.

In his spare time, Mateus enjoys surfing at the beautiful points on the Gold Coast and skateboarding.
