Your oral health is an incredible indicator of your overall health. A breakdown in your dental care routine could lead to a whole range of severe health conditions, which is why achieving your dream smile is about so much more than white, straight teeth.

Lifetime Holistic Dental offers a refreshing alternative to the regular dentistry experience. We don’t just treat your teeth and gums. Instead, we take a much more wide-ranging, overarching approach that sets you up for lifelong dental health. This approach has made us a favourite for Melburnians looking for a dental treatment with a difference.

He is regularly expanding his knowledge and skills with post-graduate courses in implantology, cosmetics, and care for worn dentition.

Dr. Julia Nguyen (Dentist)

Dr Julia Nguyen has always loved to learn and study, so as to finesse the quality of treatment she gives to her patients. She completed a Bachelor of Science (Med Lab) from RMIT university, Melbourne 2004, and then went on to finish her Dentistry in 2009 from the University of Western Australia.

Over the last 13 years, she’s developed a keen interest in restoring patient’s ability to eat and function smoothly, via crowns bridges and implants, as well as improve the patient’s love of smiling again via porcelain veneer work that is in harmony with their face.

Head and neck posture as it relates to dental health and occlusal harmony are other holistic areas of interest she has.

Her aim is to individualise your treatment goals, making sure you understand your options via thorough treatment planning steps and explanation, and to deliver the best quality dentistry she can give.

Outside of dentistry, she spends her time cooking, gardening, and spending time with her family.
