To All Our Really Valued Patients,


These are such daunting and unsettling times for us all in Australia and around the world, and so we thought we should write and let you know of our plans, and how we are doing our bit to combat the spread of this insidious virus.

Whether you are a new patient, or like many of you, have trusted us to care for you for three decades or more, you know that we take your welfare as paramount.

We are practicing the very highest standards of Infection Control at our practice, Kate, (our terrific and dedicated nurse who has been with us for 10 years) and I, are mindful of your peace of mind, and most importantly, your safety. I want to assure you we are diligent in sterilisation procedures, follow the Australian Dental Association guidelines on COVID 19 and stringently update our knowledge and monitor the unfolding situation as guided by the Australian Government Health Department.

Our General Manager, Jacqueline, my wife, has a background in International Humanitarian Response, working as a Global Director for a major aid agency and advising governments internationally; and is World Health Organisation trained in quarantine and emergency response, as that was her job. She has also just finished off in a very senior role with the Australian Defence Force and recently ran Operation Angel’s Humanitarian Response for the Bushfires. Therefore, we have an expertin house’, as well as my clinical training as a Dental Surgeon / Dentist, which is deemed an essential service.

With that in mind, we will continue seeing patients who need non-invasive treatments as follows:

  • Emergency Cases – along with Pain Management and Relief – just call ahead.
  • Pain and TMD patients,
  • Snoring and Sleep Apnoea
  • Sleep appliance adjustments
  • Dentures
  • Teeth Whitening
  • Invisalign – (clear aligner alternative to Braces) & and scanning with our state of the art iTero.

As well, I thought we should remind you that we are updating our look, the logo, and creating a new name for our practice for the 2020’s.

DesignDentistry is being rebranded with the new name:

The Snore Fix Doctor & Family Dentistry.

All the treatments and services will be the same, I am still going to be your Dentist even though we will have a new name, and I will stick with you during this crisis and when we restart our normal lives.

I hope you will continue to allow me to care for you and your families as I have always done, you’ve genuinely become dear friends, much more than patients, and I will be here when you need me. I really love helping you all, treating you, and hearing about your lives and loved ones, and I feel privileged by the trust you always put in me to give you the best possible dental care.

To help you, we will be offering and adapting during these strange times of home isolation as follows:

  • Video Consultations with me will be free of charge. Simply ring our office number and set up a time for a chat. We are looking at ways of doing this, either via mobile phone cameras or Facetime and those sessions will be private and one on one.
  • If you have general oral hygiene questions for me, or other questions about dental & jaw pain related issues, we will handle those via short video posts on our new Facebook page (The Snore Fix Doctor). I will also discuss TMD, Snoring and Sleep Apnoea solutions and conditions.   Email your questions to:
  • If it is ok with you, we may send you a little request for your opinions on our practice – answers can be anonymous if you like, but we want to hear from you very much please.
  • Have a look at our new website: for other information as well, and take a look at our new colours and pictures… is still us and not a new dentist!!!

Mainly though, we want you all to stay well and healthy. We will all get through this if we remember we are a community who support each other, we are hear to listen to you as we always do.

Best wishes,

Dr Ian Maratos,  Kate and Jacq
