About our practiceOur practice has been on this site for many years but became recognisable as today’s Katoomba Dental Practice in 1998 when Graham Loader and Chih Liu took over as joint partners with Naveed Jamil joining not long afterwards. Many of the team joined at this time and are still here more than 18 years later. Dr Rose Jawad, joined the team in 2019 enabling us to offer a wider choice of appointments.
All of our dentists and health care professionals are committed to continuing professional development enabling them to keep abreast of changing skills and advances in technology. Our partners are also Denplan Excel accredited. Denplan Excel is an independently validated comprehensive clinical governance programme that ensures our quality of care, treatment and service are amongst the best available. Meaning that our practice exceeds standards of clinical governance, statutory requirements and industry best practice recommendations. It is a visible sign of our commitment to quality and assures you of the high standards we have set ourselves.
Disabled accessOur building is a converted detached house with its own car park. Access to the building is step free and the double doors can be opened to allow wheelchairs through. All dental surgeries are on the ground floor with standard width door ways which fit most wheelchairs. The hygienist surgery is located on the first floor but special arrangements can be made to see patients in a ground floor surgery. Please note that our toilet is on the ground floor but is only suitable for the ambulant disabled and not wheelchair users. Please let us know if you have any special needs or requirements or wish to visit the practice before choosing to join us.
