After graduating and working in private practices across Sydney, Dr Michael Tu established his own dental practice at Burwood, a suburb in Sydney inner west region in 2005. He then expanded it to this current new location in 2016. The new customised designed clinic is located conveniently right next to Westfiled Burwood, on the corner of Shaftesbury Rd and Wilga St.
The clinic is still a family-owned and operated business. It is not owned by a large corporation, so our first priority is with the patient.

Modern Computerised Clinic
Our modern dental chairs aim to provide you a comfortable and safe experience. We use specialised dental softwares to keep your dental records integrating with our intra-oral camera and digital x-rays.
Ceiling Mounted Smart TV
We have smart TV mounted in one of our treatment rooms. This is a very good distraction for kids (and adults) as they can watch their favorite shows while getting dental treatment. Make sure you request it when booking so you or your kids can seat in the chair for the pleasant experience.
Our Sterilisation Room.
We use the BIOSONIC® ultrasonic cleaner and the Class B Lisa autoclave. The instruments are placed inside the auctoclave and heated to 134°C under high pressure which kill all microorganisms and spores. We carry out daily tests to assess the efficiency of both the cleaning and sterilising machines, to ensure the health and safety of our patients.
Digital Low Radiation X-rays
We can provide you both intra-oral and whole mouth panoramic x-rays (OPG). All our x-rays are generated digitally. which means that you will receiving 50-80% less radiation than the already low-radiation from conventional dental x-rays. Digital x-rays provide huge advantages over standard x-rays.
Soft Tissue Laser
Soft tissue laser is used to remove and cut soft gum tissues. They are very useful to correct gum shape or asymmetry and may help to remove bacteria in gum disease pockets. Laser treatment reduces bleeding and causes less discomfort during and after surgical procedures. Gums heal faster or better.

But if you can not make it on the day. you can go home and take time to think about it or have a talk with your partner/family, as we fully understand that sometimes it is not always an easy decision to make.
