Dr Fatemeh Heidary
I graduated with DDS in 2004 in Iran (Persia). I successfully completed the NSW International Dental Graduates exams in 2008 and I was given the opportunity to attend a highly regarded training program at the University of Sydney. I worked in a variety of public and private practices in Iran and Australia such as Westmead Dental Hospital and Sydney Dental Hospital. I am registered with the National Dental Board of Australia and I am also a member of the Australian Dental Association.
My special interest is treating anxious patients who suffer from dental phobia.
When I am not busy creating beautiful smiles, I enjoy exercising, traveling and spending time with my husband and our ten-year-old son.
Dr Simon Briggs
I graduated with my BDS (Syd) in 1997 worked in the maxillo-facial department of three prominent hospitals in London and Wales. I returned to Sydney with my Fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons (FDS RCS) London, and began teaching and working at Westmead Hospital, Sydney. I obtained my Diploma of Clinical Dentistry in Intravenous Sedation and Pain Control in 2000 and began servicing several practices in the Sydney area with dental surgery, IV Sedation, dental implant procedures, and bone regenerative procedures. Today, I have become a mentor in implant techniques for several colleagues and practices, placing well over 350 implants per year. As well, I am highly trained in Dento-Facial Aesthetics and provide patients with various options of treatments including relaxant injections, Dermal Fillers, and aesthetic therapies. I am a member of the Australasian Academy of Dento-Facial Aesthetics and the Australian Dental Association.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and four children, collecting wine and playing soccer and tennis.
Dr Namik Hak
I received a Bachelor of Biomedical Science with First Class Honors degree from UTS in 2004, in the field of Molecular Biology and completed my Dentistry degree in 2010, at the University of Sydney.
I enjoy practicing all aspects of general dentistry including Crown and Bridge work, Endodontics and Oral Surgery such as wisdom tooth extractions. My special interest is in cosmetic dentistry, including porcelain crowns, veneers, in office tooth whitening as well as cosmetic injectables such as anti-wrinkles and dermal fillers. I keep myself up to date with the latest in dental innovations and practices. Through continuing professional development training and education, I strive to provide my patients with the most advanced treatments available. I am approachable and very patient in nature. My focus always is to make my patients’ visits as enjoyable as possible.
I enjoy strolling alongside Sydney’s beautiful beaches in search for the best new coffee. I also love getting out of town on the back of my motorcycle whenever I can.
