About Dental Pod

Dr Matthew Clougher and Dr Dirk Jacobsen understand the connection between oral health and overall wellbeing for each patient.

We are a small and intimate practice so we can offer patient care at a personalised level. Your health is very important to us and that is why we will give you the space and time for in-depth consultations.

The Dental Pod is an innovative dental surgery, providing a mercury amalgam free and mercury amalgam safe clinical environment. Matt and Dirk use advanced techniques when removing mercury amalgam to protect the patient, the staff and the environment from toxic waste mercury. The Dental Pod also offers all areas of general dentistry.
