At Sydney Road Dental Care our dentists and support staff truly love coming to work collaborating, innovating and constantly learning.
Dr Jamie Jones
I have a Bachelors degree of Biomedical Science from the University of Queensland and a Bachelor of Dentistry from Sydney University. Beginning my career as a dentist in Rural NSW working in disadvantaged and Indigenous communities allowed me to gain a wide depth of experience in all aspects of Dentistry.
Having returned to the city, I have worked across some of the most renowned dental practices in Sydney. Now happily calling Sydney Road Dental Care in Manly my home, I look forward to getting to know new patients and transforming smiles with cutting edge technology!
My areas of interest include wisdom tooth removal, sleep dentistry and complete smile make overs.
Dr Fay Callaghan
I qualified as a dentist from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne (UK) in 2005. Over the last 11 years of my career to date, I have worked in a number of different practices all across the UK which has successfully developed my skills in many aspects of dentistry. I emigrated to Australia in early 2015 with Permanent Residency and have now made Sydney my new home – for me, it’s the best city in the world.
I enjoy all aspects of dentistry but have a special interest in restorative dentistry (especially crown and bridgework) and short term orthodontics including clear aligner therapy. I am also very passionate about paediatric dentistry-I engage with children very well and firmly believe in encouraging good dental habits from an early age in order to make visiting the dentist a fun and positive experience for our young patients. I am committed to continuing professional development and regularly attend courses across both Australia and the UK in order to advance my knowledge and keep up to date with the latest research and technologies.
I always strive to build a great rapport with my patients, taking time to explain treatments fully and discuss all options available. My calm and friendly manner helps to quickly put patients at ease and I regularly have new patients request me following recommendations from their friends and family. I am thrilled to be working as a dentist in Manly and serving the community.
Dr Ben Chuang
I’ve always had a passion for healthcare even from a young age. After obtaining my first bachelor degree in pharmacy, I soon found my true calling in dentistry. I graduated from the University of Sydney with honours and have been loving my career ever since.
I have a keen eye for aesthetics and love to create beautiful smile make-overs. I believe everyone deserves an amazing smile and my biggest reward is to see how the smiles I help create transform people’s lives.
Having worked in many different clinics over the years, I’m excited to call Sydney Road Dental Care in Manly my home. Here we share the same dedication for excellence and strive to deliver the best quality results for our patients.
Outside of dentistry, I’m a self-acclaimed foodie and once considered joining Masterchef. I spend my weekends volunteering at church and exploring all the hidden gems this great city has to offer.
Dr Alan Marel
I started working in this very practice in 1981, after graduating from Sydney University with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery. It’s hard to imagine a better place to work than Manly, and so I’ve remained here ever since. Working in the same practice for over 35 years, in all facets of Dentistry, has allowed me continuity of care for so many people, many of whom now travel back here from all over NSW. In many cases I have had the privilege of looking after three generations of the same family.
Away from the surgery I enjoy most sports (watching more than participating these days), especially rugby, cricket, basketball, horse racing, skiing, as well as reading, the theatre, movies and all sorts of music.
