Though Dr Hassoun (Dentist) initially thought he would become a medical doctor, he soon realized that a hospital environment wasn’t for him. He made the switch to dentistry, attending the University of Adelaide and graduating with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1991. With a vision of creating a unique, high-quality practice with excellent customer service, he moved to Melbourne in 1998 and opened his practice a year later.
I love it when people get up from the chair and say that it was the best experience they’ve ever had, and they didn’t feel a thing.”
