Welcome to the Sunshine Coast Dental Implant Centre
All procedures from diagnostics, planning, surgery and final restoration are carried out on site at Dental Centre Maroochydore, of which Sunshine Coast Dental Implant Centre is a subsidiary. We are conveniently located in the centre of Maroochydore with on-site parking available.
The dental implant team is led by Dr Owen Jenkins, who performs all the implant surgery and also restores a large number of cases. Most of the clinicians at the practice are well trained and experienced in restoring and maintaining the health of dental implants. We also have clinicians with specific expertise in certain fields of dentistry, so you can be confident that we can meet all your dental needs in the same clinic.
Owen prides himself on taking the fear and uncertainty out of dental care, by ensuring all options and treatments are fully explained in language you can understand. Having had an implant treatment himself, he has a strong empathy with patients going through this procedure.
Having qualified in 2002 with awards for the top clinical student in Restorative Dentistry, Periodontology and Prosthetics; he spent his first few years undertaking further postgraduate training positions in oral and maxillofacial surgery, advanced restorative dentistry, periodontology and sedation dentistry. This culminated in passing multiple examinations to become a Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgeons of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
In 2016, he successfully graduated from a year-long Master Clinician Program in advanced implant surgery with the global institute for dental education and Loma Linda University in California, achieving an additional certification as an Aesthetic Master Clinician.
He is also one of few Australian dentists or specialists to have passed the rigorous and lengthy assessment of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and to be awarded the prestigious Diploma in Implant Dentistry.
He continues to dedicate much time to studying worldwide and furthering his knowledge and skills so that he can provide the best possible evidence based care for his patients. He is also active in improving the education of other dentists both locally and nationally in Australia through mentorship and lecturing in implant dentistry and by founding and running a regional implant dentistry study club.
He is experienced in managing patients with dental anxiety and phobias and performs weekly intravenous sedation treatment sessions at the practice. This is ideal to help make dental treatments more acceptable and manageable for those with dental anxiety, or for those patients having longer procedures.
Away from work, Owen likes to be active and enjoy the outdoors with his family and their Golden Retriever Alfie. As a former rugby union player, he loves coaching his son’s rugby team. He is also a qualified surf lifesaver who helps out with Nippers surf lifesaving activities and patrolling at Alexandra Headland beach.
