Practice Principal, Dentist

Dr. Maria Petricevic BDSc (Melb), Dentist

Dr. Maria Petricevic is a general dentist and the practice principal at Melbourne Dentistry. She grew up in the coastal country town of Geelong and commuted to and from the University of Melbourne on the V-Line trains throughout dental school. Graduating in 1994, Dr. Maria has now been practicing for just over 23 years. She has worked hard to provide high quality dental care for all her patients ever since graduation.

Dr. Maria has practiced in country Victoria - Warrnambool, Bacchus Marsh and Geelong for close to 10 years, gaining a wide range of experiences before moving to the city she loves, Melbourne, in 2003, to commence practice at her current location. After working within the associateship practices of Dr Lloyd O'Brien, Dr Jim Hoggart and Dr Peter Hays for two years, she was able to purchase, establish and grow her own dental practice within Kurrajong House, now called Melbourne Dentistry.

Dr Maria loves dentistry. Even after 23 years! She enjoys the artistry of modern dentistry and is passionate about staying current with her knowledge. She is a member of the Australian Dental Association and an active participant in dental study groups and societies (ASP, ANZSPD, ASE, IADT, ITI and ABD).

Dr Maria is very particular and strives to offer her patients the very best in comprehensive dental care – from trusted preventive advice to long lasting treatment results. She is kind, friendly and (tries to be) funny. She enjoys chatting to patients and providing a happy, comfortable and supportive professional environment with her positive and hard working team.
