At Special Care Dental we focus on making your visit to the dentist a positive experience.


Our practice uses the latest technologies and treatment options to ensure the very best outcome no matter what your dental condition. People of all ages are welcome and we have unique care options for nursing home residents and those with physical and mental disabilities.


Patients needing dental surgery can be treated at Special Care Dental’s North Adelaide or Millicent clinics or, for more complex cases, in hospital by practice founder Dr Christopher Hodge. Different sedation techniques are also available for people with a fear of dentistry or who need effective and powerful pain control.


This comprehensive dental service is delivered at competitive rates in a modern health environment which is both supportive and friendly. We have well-equipped surgeries large enough to accommodate all types of wheelchairs.


Special Care Dental North Adelaide is a recognised preferred provider among health funds, including BUPA, and is a member of the dental plan scheme.

Mission Statement

Our aim is to keep you smiling.
At Special Care Dental we aim to provide our patients the finest personalised dental care. We believe in preventative dental care for our patients and we educate them on how to maintain their dental health for life. We work together with our patients to improve oral health, cosmetic appearance and confidence and can advise on diets that may be impacting on their oral health.
To support this we provide a warm, relaxing and supportive environment for both our patients and our staff. We believe that a visit to the dentist should be a stress-free experience whether it is for a routine check-up or more complex treatment.
We will rely on proven diagnostic technology, effective treatment protocols, and high-quality dental materials that will allow our patients to enjoy safe, long-lasting and comfortable dental care.
We will build relationships with our patients on honesty, trust, and comfort; and our emphasis will be placed on educating our patients so they are empowered to make knowledgeable decisions concerning their oral health and treatment options.

Vision Statement

It is our vision to exceed our patients’ expectations in every way possible. We will succeed by providing the best quality dental care complemented by the very finest customer service.
We will maintain a modern, safe care environment where all our staff will practice as a team to communicate and collaborate, advancing the quality of dental care our patients receive.
