Dr. Gwen Flanagan

Gwen is Newcastle born and bred, growing up in Cooks Hill before graduating in dentistry at Sydney University in 1987. Gwen brings years of experience, gained from practicing dentistry in Public Hospitals and Private Practice in Sydney and also working overseas in the United Kingdom (British) dental system. Gwen worked in Cobar, NSW in her own dental practice for several years before returning to her home town of Newcastle. She has spent the balance of her dental career in our great city, where she currently provides her years of experience to her patients in her own practice in Adamstown.

Working overseas was instrumental in expanding her knowledge base and adding to her repertoire of skills also giving her greater appreciation of the great dental system and the high quality of materials available to Australians. Remote dentistry in Cobar has added much to Gwen’s dental knowledge to benefit her patients.

Gwen’s passion is to provide excellent dentistry to her patients. In keeping with this she understands the benefit of attending regular meetings and courses to keep up to date with the advancing technologies and methods in her chosen field.

Gwen enjoys all aspects of dentistry and this is evidenced by her friendly, caring and thorough manner. She enjoys working with adults and children alike. Her adult patients appreciate her caring, confident dentistry and value her clear explanations of treatment plans, while her younger patients are relaxed by her calming, friendly approach.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
