Neil Boyd - Dental Prosthetist

Smile Care Denture Clinic was established by Neil Boyd in 1985 at 55 Ryrie Street Geelong. His qualifications and experience are impressive. Having qualified as a dental technician in 1975, Neil built his experience over many years and in 1982, commenced training at the Melbourne Dental Hospital to become a qualified Dental Prosthetist.

He has since extended his qualifications enabling him to fit Partial Dentures as well as Implant Overdentures and is recognised as highly skilled in the Precision Equilibrated Denture Techniques. Neil is very particular when it comes to applying quality and hygiene at his clinic.

To further his knowledge he has since been to the Ivoclar Vivadent training centre in Lichtenstein, CanDec training centre in Canada, Milwaukee and SanDiago for training on Temporo Mandibular Joint function/dysfunction, Ulm Germany to study the Staub Cranial technique, more recently Queensland to learn the latest CQR denture technique as well as lecturing and demonstrating to his peers around Australia and New Zealand.

Experience is very important when it comes to dentures, so with more than 40 years technical and 30 years clinical experience, Neil is highly qualified to assist with your denture needs.

In 2015, SmileCare Denture Clinic relocated after 30 years to it's convenient new location at 217 Pakington Street Geelong West.
