About Us

Woden Dental Care was established by Dr. Stephen Huang in 2004 as a sole practitioner, and has grown into a team comprising a dentist, prosthetist and hygienists.


These dedicated practitioners work closely together to ensure that each patient receives the best possible dental care in an informed position, a relaxed environment and with the latest techniques and state of the art equipment.

Providing dental care at the highest level demands experienced, leading-edge dentists, practitioners and excellent support staff. It is through our passion and dedication to help people that allows us to serve patients of all ages throughout Canberra and the Woden area.
