When you visit the dentist, you want to ensure they know what they’re doing as your smile lies in their hands.

That’s why many people usually prefer to see older, more experienced dentists rather than the recently graduated professionals. But what if a dentist combined the two to deliver the best quality service?

Dr Mark at Channon Lawrence Dental might just be one of those unicorns.

With a dental background of over 30 years, Dr Mark is highly skilled and experienced across all aspects of dentistry.

“I aim to always have the latest and most recent skills, knowledge and technology for the patients in Gympie and the surrounding areas,” Dr Mark said.

Besides holistic dentistry, where Dr Mark views the mouth as the gateway to the whole body and does not focus on it in isolation, he is also passionate about straightening crooked teeth and replacing missing teeth. “I have seen how this can have such a positive impact on my patients.”

Offering orthodontics, Invisalign and dental implants, Dr Mark aims to create a smile that improves the look and function for his patients.

“To ensure I can offer the most recent treatments to my patients I am currently doing a Master Aligning course in Invisalign, following on from Invisalign accreditation.”

Dr Mark has also graduated with Honours from Progressive Orthodontics and and from the Global Institute of Dental Implant and Loma Linda University with top class honours.

“Holistic dentistry is a large part of my philosophy,” shared Dr Mark, “I take part in the Sunshine Coast Integrative Medical Study Club, and attend the Sunshine Coast Implant Study Club to ensure I stay current with the latest research.

“I believe that the day you stop learning is the day you die – it is very important to investigate the latest tools, treatments and dental knowledge in order to have the best possible outcome for patients.”
