Dr. Michael Lucas - Principal Dentist
Dr Michael Lucas graduated from Adelaide University in 1994. From here his passion for dentistry became stronger and stronger being the youngest dentist to hold a position within the Committee of South Australia Cosmetic Dental Society and the South Australian Oral Implantology Society.
After 12 years of growing his practice from 6 staff to 18 staff, Dr Michael Lucas in 2005 along with his wife Dr Tania Lucas opened up Adelaide’s largest solo dental practice, their dream! A practice which stood out from the rest and a practice where they could perform the highest level of comprehensive dentistry most other dentists could only think about.
Dr Michael Lucas has been in general practice for over 20 years and has special interests in providing complex dental care including such treatment as implants, crowns, veneers and bridges.
Dr Michael Lucas is well known throughout the profession as a dentist who does not compromise his treatment, but offers the best there is to offer and is also able to tailor treatment to suit the individual. He prides himself on spending time at the consultation appointment to educate and explain to his patients exactly what is going on.
He believes in being proactive in looking after your mouth in order to keep you smiling and chewing throughout all your life. “Just because you’re getting on in age, it doesn’t mean you have to have ugly looking teeth”.
Dr Michael Lucas also has a strong passion for the sea, which lead him to follow another love and find a balance in his life which involves being on the sea as well as in the surgery. Profishing Charters SA was created in 2008 and has become one of Adelaide’s most successful fish chartering businesses. We always wonder where Dr Michael Lucas finds the time between doing dentistry to running fishing charters, but we know for sure that he always has time for his lovely wife Tania and their three children.
