Dr Mark Moore grew up in Adelaide and graduated from the University of Adelaide in 1982. His first job out of university was in Loxton, and he has practiced there until now. With the recent sale of his practice he has moved back to Adelaide and is very happy to be joining the team at Burnside Dental Practice. He has an interest in all facets of dentistry, largely because this is a necessity for a country dentist, but is pleased to be joining a practice that has Cerec and Cone Beam Radiography, technologies which he had in his own practice in Loxton.

Outside of dentistry, Mark is an avid road and mountain bike rider, and is looking forward to the opportunity of riding his bike to work. He also enjoys sailing and has recently purchased a yacht to develop those skills. He is married to Deb, and they have three (adult) children, and two labradors.

Dental Assistants

The practice is very fortunate to have a great team of dental assistants to support our dentists.

Due to the complex nature of a lot of our treatments, the girls require a very diverse skill set. From Dr Ghai’s surgical patients, Dr Sahgal’s wide variety of patients and procedures (from children to Cerecs to root canals), their days are never boring. They have many years of dental experience between them and are all fantastic at their main role – making their patients feel comfortable and at ease.
