Proudly partnering the Toowong community for over 30 years.
Toowong Village Dental moved from its original premises near Benson Street into Toowong Village when the shopping centre first opened in 1986. The practice has remained in its current premises since then. Dr Glen Harey and his wife Kim purchased the practice in 2003.
Dr Glen Harvey
BDSc (Hons) Qld, Grad Dip Clin Dent (Oral Implants Syd), McClinDent (Oral Surgery) Qld.
Glen graduated in 1993 from the University of Queensland,
Glen completed a post graduate specialist degree in Implant Dentistry from Sydney University in 2011. At a very competitive rate, he can perform the whole implant process from initial CT scans and diagnosis to surgical insertion of the implant, and finally fitting the crown to create the new permanent tooth.
In 2019 Glen completed his second post graduate degree from Griffith University in Oral Surgery. This has broadened his skill set to enable him to treat patients with complex oral surgery needs. He’s able to diagnose, treat and perform surgery to resolve injuries or issues in the face, jaws and hard and soft oral tissues.
In accordance with this treatment, we offer monthly in-chair dental treatment under IV Sedation with the assistance of our Dental IV Anaesthetist. This allows patients who wish to have treatments, such as wisdom teeth extractions and root canal therapy, performed by Glen in our surgery and be sedated for the procedure. It’s more cost effective than being in hospital, and patients feel more comfortable having this procedure performed by their dentist in their surgery.
