About Us

Oscar completed his training in Sydney in the most advanced, modern and most dynamic dental laboratory of its day; completing six years of full-time training, combined with study at the Sydney Dental Hospital.

Following that, three years were spent managing a research and development laboratory funded by the Federal Industrial Research and Development Board.He was involved in developing and testing of gold/ceramic bonding systems utilizing the best available dental materials from around the world. The results of which are published in a prestigious English Dental Technology textbook. 

Moving on from the research laboratory he opened and operated a Crown and bridge laboratory in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs. During this time he was involved in the development, manufacture and placement of some the first  subperiosteal implants in Australia. 

Ten years later he and his family moved to the Far North Coast of New South Wales to commence a partnership in a commercial dental laboratory and denture clinic with two other dental technicians/prosthetists. 

After spending another ten years at this laboratory he felt that Northern Rivers and Lismore community needed a quality denture clinic and Active Denture Clinic was founded.

Active Denture Clinic has been operating in Lismore since July 2005. The Lismore dental market was in need of a denture clinic and 26 Uralba Street was the perfect central position.

The property was in a sad and less than perfect state, complete with orange shag-pile carpet. With a lot of hard work, the house was transformed into a comfortable, clean, and modern clinic, that included a disabled ramp and ample off-street parking. The clinic is equipped to construct all types of dentures and our central location means we can work closely with local dentist and oral surgeons.
