538 Collins Street

Melbourne CBD

Our dental clinic at 538 Collins Street in Melbourne CBD opened its doors in September 2006. It was the third location in the successful d-spa portfolio, following our other Melbourne clinics.
Like our other d-spa locations, 538 Collins Street is designed to offer a soothing escape from the bustle of the CBD. Relaxing music and essential aromatherapies help our patients to kick back and relax before their appointments, and our attentive staff are here to answer any questions or concerns you might have. We’re just a short walk from Southern Cross Station and tram stations, with ample on-street parking.

Gabriel Brazil-Cornish

Oral health therapist

Gabriel is a qualified Adult Scope Oral Health Therapist, he received his Bachelor of Oral Health from the University of Melbourne in 2018. He enjoys helping a broad spectrum of ages; from first time visits – to clients reluctantly visiting for the first time in years. Ever since Gabriel visited the dentist as a very young kid he enjoyed going. It was a shock to him when he started seeing patients at uni that didn’t feel the same way. He hopes to provide the same positive experience that he enjoyed as a young kid to every patient so they no longer need to feel fearful of the dentist.

Gabriel enjoys seeing patients for Periodontitis, Fillings, Paediatric dentistry and general check ups. As an Oral health therapist with Adult scope, Gabriel is able to complete fillings for adults of all ages.
