Why choose us as your dentist in Hobart

What makes us Different

Ian Gurner Dental Care Team

Our Values

Experience world-class dentistry in Hobart with a thoughtful human touch at Ian Gurner Dental Care. We’ve earned an exceptional reputation for our superb dentistry, and we’re often asked for second opinions. But what we’re most proud of is the genuine personal relationships we’ve established with the people we work for every day – our clients. 

Our approach to dentistry is holistic and considered. We believe that your ongoing health and vitality is best served by a dental care plan that fits your overall health, lifestyle and long-term plans. We want to know who you are because it’s vital to tailor the right treatment for you.

A lot of thought and care goes into our treatment decisions, and we’ll only recommend treatment for you that we’d opt for ourselves in the same position.

Open, honest communication is part of our charter. It’s about respect – and beyond that: it simply makes sense, to treat clients who are confident and well-informed about their dental health.

We’re firm advocates for ethical pricing, and we’re well-versed in designing dental care plans to fit around work and travel plans, as well as your budget.

We live here, and we’re glad to play a part in supporting our local community, from theatre (Ian’s passion) to the visual arts – our walls are graced with contemporary works by both established and up-and-coming local artists.

Our architecturally-designed space is relaxed and inviting, and often likened by clients to an upscale boutique or gallery. From the Aesop products in our tranquil Refresh Area to the thoughtful amenities in our treatment rooms, we’ve taken a lot of care to create a space where it’s simply a pleasure to be. 

When you come to see us, our gentle, considerate team will talk you through your options in real-talk, so we can together design a tailored treatment plan that fits you perfectly.

Our tight-knit team is made up of some of the sharpest, most considerate people we know. We value our staff for their intelligence, humour and warmth just as much as their specialised skills. We know all our clients by name, and we’re genuinely interested in you – after all, you’re who we’re all here for. And we love this job.

Drop us a line, give us a call or come say hello in person, and discover world-class dentistry right here in Hobart. 

Owned and Operated by Dental Health Professionals

Practising health professionals wholly own our practice. The names on our door are of the people who will personally provide your healthcare and look after your personal needs. Their interest is in you. Unlike many other practices, we have no hidden association with large corporations, their shareholders and distant boards of directors (not to mention their productivity managers and accountants). Our focus is not on the bottom line for someone else’s profit but on making sure you receive the best treatment possible.


Whilst many practices have signed “Preferred Provider” agreements with health insurance companies, we have intentionally chosen not to do this. We are an independent owner-operated practice. We take our role as dental health providers extremely seriously and do not associate with any one specific health insurance fund in a preferred-provider arrangement. This allows us to remain totally independent and offer the best clinical choice for you free of interference by the external ‘business rules” of the health insurance companies.
