Maven Dental Maryborough, formerly Toothworkx, is a locally owned and operated dental practice since 1986. Dr Noel Commins, Principal Dentist and owner of Maven Dental Maryborough, graduated dentistry in 1982 and bought the practice from Dr Keith Whalley, a local dentist for some 32 years. Our 33 years of professional experience ensures you personal attention and great results, giving you an enjoyable dental encounter. Our two dentists and hygienist are locally born and have returned to the region to settle.

Are you nervous about going to the dentist?

Many of our dedicated team members have been part of the team for well over 5 years. We encourage a happy nurturing environment in our workplace, creating a place that is comforting to visit.
Maven Dental Maryborough, formerly Toothworkx, invested in some high tech equipment in 2014. We added a Cerec machine and a digital OPG/CT dental X-ray unit. The Cerec machine allows us to do “one visit” crowns in a very aesthetic porcelain material. An intra-oral 3D camera is used to scan your teeth instead of messy, uncomfortable & bad tasting impressions. The camera then sends the scan to the milling unit which makes the crown; which we then bond to your tooth on the same day, at the same appointment. So there is no need for a second appointment to insert your crown and no need to wear a temporary crown for two weeks or so.
The OPG/CT X-ray machine allows us to take extra-oral X-rays on site during your visit. OPG’s are required to check your wisdom teeth, jaw joints and the health of your teeth and the surrounding bone generally. You can find more information about this in our services and brochures sections. CT (Cone Beam Volumetric Tomography) gives us a 3D image of your mouth and can be restricted to one quarter (quadrant) of your mouth depending on what we need to assess. Linked with Galileos software, we can plan placement of implants when required and gain a better view of more difficult Root Canal Treatments.
We are one of the first fully accredited dental practices on the Fraser Coast. This means that our patients are receiving the highest quality care through very elevated standards that are reviewed and updated continuously. The standards range from Infection Control Protocols, to Business models, Staff Training & performance, Clinical Protocols, Patient feedback & Patient Privacy and involvement. Maven Dental Maryborough believes that by following these standards we are reducing the general risks associated with providing dental care and providing quality care for our patients while maintaining a high level of education and accountability of our team. This also means that our patients are involved in their own care and decision making through systems that not only involve them in the care process but also in making informed decisions about the treatment they need after discussions with the dental provider. Maven Dental Maryborough is proud to have been awarded our initial Dental Practice Accreditation in August 2013. Maven Dental Maryborough continues to be reviewed annually by a specialised accrediting body and their reports highly commend our efforts. Accreditation is highly regarded and recognised internationally as a sign of quality healthcare. This also led us to adopt a strong culture in which the whole team believes and we would like to share this with you.
