Meet The Team

Dr Jack B Milgate

Dr Madeleine Lewon


Marty, an Oral Health Therapist, has extensive experience working with kids. An entire career worth in fact. One of his primary roles is to care for the general dental needs of children.


Additionally, Marty is responsible for providing the ongoing maintenance and hygiene needs for all of our patients. His goal is to provide a deeper understanding of what good oral hygiene is. Marty likes to make a point in educating patients on how to take the best care of their dental health. He has worked with specialist Orthodontists, Periodontists, Prosthodontists and general Dentists in Australia and abroad.

Living in London and working in a specialist Invisalign clinic whilst there, has given Marty some unique insights into the complexities faced by patients undertaking orthodontic treatment. Guiding people through the journey to a bright confident smile is one of his biggest pleasures.

More recently Marty was living on the Gold Coast where he completed his Bronze medallion and sparked his interest in surf life saving.

Outside of dentistry, Jack enjoys the frustration of Golf, a hit of tennis and tinkering with old cars and motorcycles.
