About Suncoastdental Maroochydore
Our purpose built Sunshine Coast Dental facility was established in 2004
Located in Maroochydore, our dental practice was designed to our specifications to provide you with the highest standard of dental care in a relaxed and caring environment.
With five surgery rooms, the latest state-of-the-art treatment equipment, a comfortable patient recovery room for those who choose treatment under sedation and a lovely, welcoming ambience, you are in no doubt that patient comfort and dental excellence are the priorities at Suncoastdental.
Every aspect of the patient experience is important to us. If you’re waiting for a family member to finish their treatment you can browse through the latest magazines and newspapers, and littlies will be entertained by our various iPad games and children’s play area.
The attention to detail doesn’t change once you are in the treatment rooms either. Our patients recline in leather treatment recliners and can watch a DVD while one of our three experienced dentists take care of them. At Suncoastdental Maroochydore, it’s the little things that count.
At Suncoastdental, we have three general dentists, one hygienist and one oral health therapist. Each is an experienced, qualified professional
They can carry out an extensive range of dental services and share a commitment to our practice philosophy – to provide the highest quality ethical treatment in a caring environment. Our dentists take the time to really listen to your needs. After a personal consultation, they will provide you with a written treatment plan that clearly explains your options, the costs and the expected outcomes. Our dental professionals are supported by a Practice Administrator and a dedicated team of receptionists, trained Dental Nurses and sterilising room staff to ensure that they can concentrate on what they do best – looking after you.

Dr Steve Perham B.D.Sc.
Steve graduated from the University of Queensland. He has practised dentistry on the Sunshine Coast since 1996 and has built up a loyal following of patients, particularly children, with whom he has a special rapport. Steve starts his days at the gym and is an enthusiastic follower of most sports.
Dr Fiona Campbell B.D.Sc. (Hons)
Fiona graduated with Honours from the University of Queensland and practised on the Sunshine Coast before spending two years working in the UK. We were fortunate to have her join our team in 2008. A testament to her popularity as a dentist are her numerous former patients who attend our practice just to see her. When not at work Fiona exercises her exceptional manual dexterity by knitting, sewing and cooking – however she is far from being a “nanna“!
