Waratah Dental began in Lithgow nearly 15 years ago and Dr Gabriel Mouawad and Dr Kylie Arnot took over four and a half years ago.

The experienced practitioners have worked hard to make the surgery a place where patients felt welcome and comfortable and where families could come with their children.

Last October they took on the Leura practice which had been established by Dr David Raine some 30 years earlier and they have made a few changes.

The surgery has been moved downstairs to the ground level of the Strand Arcade to make it more accessible for people with wheelchairs and families with prams as well as their older patients.

They have also installed on-site imaging facilities which allow a comprehensive examination and treatment without having to travel to the local imaging centre.

Finally, they welcomed Prudence McHugh, a dental therapist and hygienist.

Prue has been living in the Blue Mountains with her family for the nearly 20 years and has developed a following of patients who love her warm temperament and attention to detail.

Principal dentist Dr Gabriel said Waratah Dental Leura offered a wide range of dental services with a family focus.

"Our practitioners have a friendly demeanour and have activities to make a child's dental experience enjoyable," he said.

Dr Gabriel has a particular talent for removing teeth, including wisdom teeth, both quickly and painlessly.

He also has a special interest in placing dental implants, root canal therapy and aesthetic dentistry.

Dr Gabriel has visiting and operating rights at Lithgow Community Private Hospital where he can provide treatment under general anaesthesia for complicated procedures and highly anxious patients, including children.

Apart from performing general dentistry such as cleans and restorations, Dr Kylie also provides anti-wrinkle treatment and fillers.

"At Waratah Dental we are quite passionate about preventative dentistry," Dr Gabriel said.

"And for that reason we have a strong hygiene department and system to ensure our patients' oral health."
