Who we are

We at Lumino Gore Dental Care are a vibrant young practice situated in an historic building in the CBD in Gore. The building was originally built by a doctor to accommodate his family and practising surgery which was then transformed into a dental surgery in the 60s. Some of our current patients have been coming to this building all their lives.

Our dental team consists of two dentists, two oral health therapists, two dental assistants and a practice manager/receptionist. Our Lead Dentist, Dr Robyn Pahl, has interests in cosmetic dentistry and has been a practicing dentist since 1988. 

Whether you are looking for pain free and gentle dental care, or require an affordable dentist in Gore that offers flexible payment options, Lumino The Dentists - Gore Dental Care will make sure you leave smiling.
