About Us

For nearly three decades, Dunbar Dental Centre has been a proud part of the Dunbar community. In 2015, Dr. Anna Pranata joined the practice. She continues the legacy of service, spirit, and compassion that defines us. Together with a dedicated team, Dr. Pranata ensures every patient receives care as thoughtful as that given to our families.

Our Mission Statement

Our passion for dentistry and forging meaningful relationships underpins Dunbar Dental Clinic’s ethos. We are a family-friendly practice rooted in respect, kindness, and teamwork. Moreover, we offer comprehensive dental services for individuals of all ages. Here, every smile is significant, ensuring you experience the finest care tailored to each family member’s needs.

Our Philosophy

Understanding the deep link between oral health and overall well-being is crucial. Consequently, educating our patients stands as a cornerstone of our approach. Indeed, education paves the way to prevention, outshining any dental procedure in importance. Our aim? To empower patients, giving them control over their oral health which, in turn, enhances their overall quality of life. Despite best efforts, challenges like cavities, trauma, and periodontal disease may occur due to the mouth’s complex biology. Aware of this, our patients can expect to receive the latest and most comprehensive dental care, underscored by our team’s commitment to clinical excellence.

Dental Mission

Dr. Pranata has committed significant time and expertise to dental missions, bringing vital dental services to underserved regions. Her work in Guatemala and Morocco, for instance, has been immensely fulfilling. These experiences have showcased the resilience and joy of communities with scarce resources. However, she recognizes that the struggles of poverty and necessity are not just overseas but also at our doorstep.
