Just Started with Starbright Dental Welcome Dr Aarjun Chadha

Aarjun has recently graduated from Griffith University with the latest insights and training in modern dentistry. He is a true local, residing right here in Southport! Aarjun may look tough on the outside but he has a very gentle and caring attitude which you will very quickly come to realise. He is involved with volunteering his dental expertise to the less fortunate and regularly visits the town of Cherbourg in North-West Queensland to do this.

Aarjun is dedicated to providing superior dental solutions that can be customised to each person's goals, values and budget. He also has a strong focus on delivering comprehensive care that extends beyond just fixing teeth. Aarjun is interested in improving your general well-being and explaining how your dental health may be impeding this process. He has a keen interest in providing cosmetic-oriented dentistry and doing so in a manner that allows the patient to be most comfortable.

In his spare time Aarjun enjoys hiking through the national parks, going on long walks along the beautiful beaches and driving along the scenic routes of Gold Coast. 

Dr Andrew Chapman  – Dentist
B.D.Sc, G.Dip(Dent) 

Dr. Chapman has enhanced his clinical skills in all areas of general dentistry, whilst working in several private practices in NSW and Queensland since graduating. The desire and the opportunity to study further in Oral Surgery at the University of Sydney lured Dr. Chapman to the Harbour City in 2014 before returning to the Sunshine State in 2017 to be close to family and friends. 
Andrew has a caring and easy going nature with great communication skills that make all his patients comfortable and feel at ease in the dental chair. Hence his keen interest in fearful or anxious patients and resolving and mediating that phobia. 
He performs all facets of general dentistry, and has a keen interest in Aesthetic Dentistry, Oral Surgery & Endodontics & Periodontics, with further plans to complete study in Implantology. The passion Dr. Chapman has for Dentistry has developed into a highly driven desire for continuous learning and expanding his skills in using modern and innovative technology to restore his patients confidence and SMILE.
When not in the Surgery youll most likely find Andrew in the surf, or enjoying any other water sport for that matter . On the Rugby field feeling older by the year ( semi-retirement eminent), reading or at an antique auction hunting down a bargain. Andrew also has a keen interest in Political and global discussion, the stock market and all round generalchit-chat so feel free to strike up a conversation.
