Practice Principal, Dentist

Dr. Maria Petricevic, BDSc (Melb)

Dentist

Dr. Maria Petricevic is a general dentist and the practice principal at Melbourne Dentistry. Maria 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, she has now been practicing for just over 20 years.

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. Two years later, she was able to purchase her own practice, from within the associateship practices of Dr. Lloyd O'Brien, Dr. Peter Hays and Dr. Jim Hoggart. She has worked hard to provide high quality dental care for all her patients ever since graduation. Her practice is now called Melbourne Dentistry.

Maria loves dentistry. Even after 20 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). 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.

Dental Assistants and Administrative Staff

Barbara, Pauline, Trudi, Denise, Aihmy, Merlinda and Robyn

Barbara, Pauline, Trudi, Merlinda and Robyn are our caring and trusted reception staff - ready to listen and assist you with any queries or concerns. All are qualified dental assistants and highly valued long-term employees.

This year we have been thrilled to welcome dental assistants Denise and Aihmy back to the practice. Both Denise and Aihmy had ceased full time employment at different stages to spend time raising their young families. Both have now been able to return to the practice as their children are commencing school in the new year. They will be assisting on different days during your treatment appointments.

Together, the assistants have a collective employment experience of more than 50 years at this surgery. Our team will look forward to greeting you at your next dental visit.

 

Rebranding the practice to Melbourne Dentistry and this website is a large step toward a major online presence for our practice. We hope the information on this site is helpful and easy to navigate.
