Dr David Willis
BDS MBChB AMA(M) Medical Practitioner & Dental Surgeon - wisdom teeth removal and dental implants
You’re in the safest of hands with Dr Willis. He’s qualified in medicine, dentistry and has limited his practice to dental surgery with interests in removing impacted wisdom teeth, problem teeth and dental implant procedures. He has extensive experience in wisdom tooth removal and dental implants, performing these procedures since 2004.
His qualifications mean he can treat patients in the dental chair or in a hospital setting under general anaesthetic — depending on their preference and the type of procedure.
Dr Willis is friendly and down to earth, which is particularly appreciated by patients who are anxious about their treatments. He never leaves patients feeling he’s rushing to the next treatment. He takes time during his consultations to make sure his patients are relaxed and happy with the approach to their treatment. He’ll answer all your questions directly, and you won’t be handed to a dental nurse or receptionist for further information.
He’s a popular choice by medical colleagues, students and nurses as well as high school and university students who are having trouble with their wisdom teeth.
