Dr. Rene Nobrega

Fun, Understanding, Knowledgable!

Rene is an internationally qualified general dentist with a Bachelor of Dental Science, completed in 1999 and a post graduate degree in Endodontics, completed in 2001.

Rene opened up his own private practice, where he became a respected clinician among his community. Rene lived, with his family, in Geelong Victoria for many years before they made the decision to head north to the beautiful Sunshine Coast in December 2014 to join Dental Practices in Kawana and Brisbane.

Rene always knew that dentistry had to be done differently, with no judgment, no pain and no fear. He also knew that a great patient experience was essential, so he purchased Buderim Dental Surgery, in the heart of the Buderim Village, back in 2015.

Rene is dedicated to delivering the highest standard of oral care to Buderim and the Sunshine Coast region. All treatments are approached with gentle hands and a deep understanding of his patients needs and wants before he begins. If you have been searching for an experienced, caring dentist that will support your treatment decisions and offer quality care across a wide range of treatments . . . an appointment with Dr. Nobrega is a must.

Dr. Patrick Maher Allan

Hailing from North Queensland, Patrick graduated with his Bachelor of Dental Surgery from James Cook University in 2014.

He was one of 100 dental graduates nationwide to be offered a place in the Voluntary Dental Graduate Year Program. As a result, Patrick spent 18 months servicing remote communities.

Giving back is in Patrick’s DNA. When not working at Banksia House Dental, he is working part time with Queensland Health as a Dental Officer.
In all his spare time, he also holds an Associate Lecturer position with the University of Queensland. Patrick enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and prides himself on practicing patient-centred care.
