Welcome to Dental South

A caring profession


Dental South is a family practice with two convenient locations, Dental South Margate and Dental South Bayview, in Blackmans Bay. We aim to provide better access to dental care to the area. The principle dentist, Dr Jessica Manuela, is Tasmanian born and grew up in Kingston for most of her life and is happy to have returned to the area after completing her dental degree in Adelaide. Dr Manuela has a keen interest in providing quality preventative dental care and oral health education to everyone she sees and believes awareness is the key to maintaining oral health and overall well-being.

This is a friendly dental family which works as a team to try and provide a warm and comforting environment for everyone. Even the most anxious will find some ease in this small practice as we have tried our very best to cater to everyone’s dental and emotional needs. Sometimes overcoming the fear of going to the dentist is the biggest hurdle. We welcome all patients no matter what your dental history is.

We take great pride in our customer service and client satisfaction. We know there can be a great deal of stress surrounding dental care and visiting a dentist, but we are here to not only provide you with the best possible care, but do so in an environment that is welcoming.
