Here is the friendly team of professionals who will be caring for your oral health:
Great Alpine Dental is owned by Dr Amit Kapoor. Amit chose to move to the area from Melbourne in May 2019.
After graduating in India in 2002 Amit worked there for 7 years, 3 of those years he owned his own Dental Practice.
Since 2010 he has worked in QLD and then Victoria in public and private clinics and teaching at Melbourne University, he decided it was time to find a place where he could work at his own pace and has his own philosophy.
Amit purchased the practice from Andrea & Brian James in May this year. The calm, cheerful and naturally colourful surrounds of this region captured his interest.
Amit has a philosophy of dentistry, which takes into account a more global view of a person’s health and circumstances, and how their oral health fits into it. He believes in offering a comprehensive treatment approach to all patients and helping them return to optimum dental health at a pace that fits their life. Good Oral health is related not only to dental health but has a huge psychological effect and effect on nutrition. Amit likes to work with people to achieve the goals they have in their mind for the outcome, ranging from merely bringing dental disease under control to a bright glowing smile or anywhere in between.
Outside of dentistry Amit likes cooking, travel, exercise. He enjoys tennis (now as a spectator) and table tennis.
Kay is one of our general Dentists, offering more than 30 years of modern dental care experience. We’re lucky to enjoy Kay’s friendly, smiling personality on our team!
Like Andrea & Brian, Kay grew up in far north QLD (the Ovens Valley seems to be a magnet for Queensland dentists). She has spent most of her dental career in Queensland, including time with the Flying Dentist Service, caring for remote Gulf communities.
Kay has strong skills in a broad range of dental treatments, and is equally happy working with adults & kids.
Kay & her husband Kirk have lived in Myrtleford since 2011, and have become closely tied to the local community. Kay teaches yoga classes in Myrtleford, and is a keen hiker, snow skier, and baker.
