Helping you with the fear of dental visits

As we all know too well; the thought of having to go to the dentist can be a daunting one. We’ve witnessed so many people experience unbearable pain due to a toothache but who are still unable to overcome their fear of visiting the dentist, preferring to live on pain killers.

Wide variety of options to help you.

Overcome your fears with us

Here at the Good Shepherd we offer options like ‘happy gas’ or even the possibility of seeing our local GP for a script to help you have a more relaxing appointment. We understand that most anxious patients have had an unpleasant experience in the past, hence our commitment to helping our patients overcome this existing fear.

We're a child friendly clinic.

Great environment for your child

To ensure a child friendly clinic we have lots of toys, colouring pens & pencils, colouring books, oral health bags – containing a children’s toothbrush, toothpaste, oral health flyer, a toy and even colouring materials to take home.

Dr Benhur Lingamnini

I have been in private and public practices in Australia since 2008.  I am surrounded by an energetic and capable staff that offer the latest advancements in dentistry with a confident and caring attitude. 

I am capable in performing wide range of dental services, yet I am best known for surgical extractions, specially impacted wisdom teeth, and treatment for anxious patients. I am very passionate about serving local community. I have my own way with children and adult patients who are apprehensive or phobic to dental treatment. I am also proud of having an additional training in orthodontic treatment, which added to my knowledge in evaluating patients for better growth, dental and behavioural problems.

My special interests include helping anxious patients overcome their dental fear, cosmetic dentistry, emergency care, wisdom teeth extraction and children dentistry. 

I am a member of the ADA, and attend various Dental courses to keep myself up to date with the current information to better help my patients.

Born and raised in India, moved to Australia in 2005 and has considered this country as my new home. I have moved to the Hasting Macleay area in 2010 and very happy with this place, which made me settle here. When not working, I love gardening, playing cricket and community services. My wife is a doctor and works for the community in Hasting Macleay area, I am blessed with a boy and a girl.

Dr Yohann Sooltangos

I have graduated from Griffith University on the Gold Coast in 2017 with a Graduate Diploma in Dental Sciences. After working for 6 months in Queensland health as part of my final year placement while at university, I relocated to Port Macquarie and joined the enthusiastic team at The Good Shepherd Dental Centre.

The two important aspects of my job that I enjoy the most is firstly to always make my patient feel relaxed and as comfortable as possible as I understand that seeing a dentist can sometimes be a bit daunting. And secondly the forever evolving and modernising part of dentistry, which is why I am always doing my best to stay up to date with new techniques that are faster, more efficient and more gentle to provide the best treatment for my patients.

I do enjoy all the different fields of dentistry including preventative and cosmetic work but have a particular interest in prosthodontic work (dentures, crowns, bridges, veneers).

Outside of work my main areas of interest are my family, swimming or walking along the beautiful beaches of the Port Macquarie area, soccer and food.

Dr Edith Allasi Canales

I completed my dentistry degree in 2010. Since, I have worked in both metropolitan and rural practices. Whilst working in rural communities, I developed a particular interest in preventative dentistry. I believe that educating patients about good oral health is of paramount importance to maintain a long lasting smile and an overall wellbeing.

One of main mission is to provide the best possible dental care in a comfortable and relaxed environment. I enjoy all facets of dentistry especially Cosmetic dentistry (teeth whitening, fillings, veneers and crowns) and Orthodontics (teeth straightening) which I’m currently training for.

I’m a member of the ADA and regularly attend various courses to provide the best care for my patients.

I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese. And when not at work, I’m exploring the beautiful beaches of the Mid North Coast.
