Dr Michael Santangelo

Dentist | BDS (Hons) (USyd)

FIVE DOCK

Michael became interested in a career in dentistry while in high school after being encouraged by his childhood dentist. While at Sydney University he met fellow dental student Barbara Czajka who would later become his wife. After graduating in 1976, they travelled and worked in London and then in 1979 returned to Five Dock and have been practicing here ever since.

Michael remains motivated by the amazing evolution he has witnessed in dentistry over the years. From the advanced modern day restorative materials to the latest in digital dental technologies, he loves that it's a profession where you never stop learning. While these days Michael enjoys spending more time with his grandchildren, his love for the practical side of dentistry and his unwavering desire to help people still remains as strong as ever

WOOLLAHRA & FIVE DOCK

Dr Adrian Mazzaferro was born and raised in Sydney and is of Italian heritage. While knowing enough of the language to get by, he is currently taking night classes in Italian. This has made both his Nonnas extremely happy!

In 2005, Adrian graduated with a Bachelor of Dentistry (BDent) from The University of Sydney and was awarded the Anthony P Martin Prize for Excellence in clinical Endodontics (root canal therapy). Since graduating, Adrian has worked in several busy general practices taking care of both children and adults, and is therefore confident in a wide variety of dental procedures such as general restorative work, emergency trauma, oral surgery, implants, orthodontics and high end cosmetics. Adrian enjoys all facets of dentistry but has a special interest in complex restorative procedures, Invisalign, cosmetic dental transformations, oral surgery and implants, and constantly pursues continuing education in these areas. For example, he has completed extensive further training in the field of dental implant surgery at both private and tertiary levels and is a graduate of The University of Sydney's prestigious Graduate Diploma in Oral Implants.

He believes dentistry is a unique profession because it requires a combination of medical, technical and artistic skills. It fulfils his instinct to help people, his interest in engineering and technology, and the satisfaction of working with his hands. He endeavours to really get to know his patients in order to understand what their health needs and goals are, so together they can achieve those goals.

Before studying dentistry Adrian qualified as a registered nurse, completing a Bachelor of Nursing (BN) at The University of Sydney. He calls upon his nursing experience to build rapport with children and anxious patients. He is compassionate and honest, and his obsessive attention to detail allows him to provide comprehensive treatment of the highest standard.

Adrian loves spending his spare time with his wife and young daughter and maintains an active lifestyle. His hobbies include snowboarding, travelling, motorcycles and film.
