Braithwaite’s Family Dental has a proud history of dental service in the Manning Valley. Dr Mark Braithwaite has practised in Taree since 1988 when he joined his father Dr Brian Braithwaite in Manning Street. Dr Brian had come to Taree in 1962 to take over the practice of Dr George Ruprecht, who had commenced in 1918. In 2018, we celebrated 100 years of the practice servicing the area.
Turning your smile into an experience
When all else fails we may need to remove an ailing tooth. Aside from discomfort, persistent infections can be a risk to your overall health.
Often the dentist may identify ongoing gum problems and plan with the hygienist thorough scaling appointments often coinciding with visits for dental restorations
Our practice is fortunate to have the services of Megan Gollan who holds a Bachelor of Oral Hygiene degree from the University of Newcastle.
