Andrew Murray Dental Care is run by two dentists, with Andrew Murray being our principal dentist. We are a group of understanding dental practitioners who are here to provide support for all of your dental queries. If you’d like to know a little bit more about us before you join our extended family of patients feel free to read below.
Dr Andrew Murray
Dr Andrew Murray is the principal dentist at Andrew Murray Dental Care and has been providing high quality dental care in Hampstead Gardens. Many of his patients and their families have been visiting him for decades and appreciate that Dr Murray takes the time to get to know everyone and ensures all treatments are fully explained. Dr Murray is extremely proud of his state-of-the-art facilities and takes a great deal of pleasure in helping patients gain and maintain healthy smiles. Dr Murray is particularly passionate about patient education and enjoys explaining how preventative dentistry can reduce or eliminate the risk of dental diseases.
Dr Augusto Freitas
Dr Augusto Freitas (Gus) developed his passion in dentistry at an early age in Brazil where he would often accompany his father, a dentist who worked at his own dental practice. Gus, like his father, is a true professional and has a warm, friendly and easygoing nature who people of any age can feel at ease and comfortable with.
Gus graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Science in 1995 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Since then he has worked comprehensively in all areas of dentistry and has special interests and expertise in prosthodontics, implants and oral rehabilitation.
Gus successfully passed the Australian Dental Council exams in 2013, and since then has been working in a private practice in Adelaide. He has tutored at the School of Dentistry, Adelaide, and has practiced his dental services voluntarily for disadvantaged people at ‘’Common Ground’’. Digital dentistry has become a favored subject for Gus while working in Australia. He is a member of ITI (International Team for Implantology) since 2005, and he travels around Australia keeping himself up to date with the latest developments and technology in dentistry.
Gus is a devoted husband, who along with his wife enjoys an active lifestyle. He likes working out at the gym, stand up board paddling and riding his mountain bike – and he never refuses an invitation for a pint of ale or a glass of red wine with his friends.
Dr Catherine Wiering
Dr Catherine Wiering is a caring and gentle dentist with ten years experience. She enjoys meeting and treating a wide range of patients and in getting to know her patients as individuals to cater for their needs. She places a strong focus on preventative dentistry and has a holistic approach to deliver the best possible outcome for each patient.
She enjoys working with patients to achieve optimal dental health and also improve aesthetics as desired. Using porcelain and resin veneers or orthodontics to improve the appearance of a patient’s teeth is an area of special interest to her. She has been privileged to work with many patients where changing their smile has made a large impact in their lives.
She also enjoys seeing children of all ages and has a passion for making the experience of visiting a dentist enjoyable. She desires to see young people growing up and preventing dental disease rather than treating it.
In the same way she makes it a priority to spend time working with anxious patients and help them come to the place where they can comfortably visit the dentist. This enables them to receive necessary treatment and then become regular attenders for long term preventative care.
She was born and raised in the North East of Adelaide and still lives in the area with her husband and three young kids. During their spare time they love getting outside in their garden or exploring different areas around Adelaide. When she gets a rare moment to herself she also enjoys sewing and reading books.
