Ryde Family Dentist was established in 2012, building upon the long heritage of the premises, which has hosted dental practices since the 1950s. Located in West Ryde, our name represents our commitment to looking after the wider Ryde area.
Our current practice principal is Dr Ines Despot, who took up the reins from Dr John T Lewis in early 2012. Dr Lewis had run the surgery since 1977. He remains an important team member and still practices on Mondays and Fridays. Upon taking over, Dr Despot refurbished the practice and installed the latest dental technology.
Our commitment to providing high quality and reasonably priced dental care to the community remains firm. We are a trusted dental provider for Bupa, Medibank and CBHS, but our services are not just for their clients; anyone is welcome to visit us.
We have achieved full National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards accreditation, awarded by Quality Innovation Performance (QIP).
We monitor and regularly review all aspects of our service delivery in order to make improvements, so you can rest assured of better patient-centred service and higher quality practise at Ryde Family Dentist.
The accreditation scheme for dental practices was introduced at the start of 2013 and is voluntary at present; a mandatory programme will be developed in a few years' time. The NSQHS Standards were prepared by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, and specify world-class best practise measures for critical aspects of health care, such as infection control, medication safety and patient management, as well as general governance principles that can be applied by all health care providers.
I have been with them for the last 2 years, been treated by different doctors all of whom I'm happy with (Dr Despot is indeed great, I admit). The prices are not high, the service provided is good. Weekends are usually booked for 2-3 weeks ahead, but you will normally find a spot on weekdays in case of an emergency.
I have been seeing Dr Ines Despot for many years, after trying different dentists and health fund clinics. I find her honest, caring and is refreshing and fantastic. Lovely, convenient and always welcoming.
I cannot recommend Dr Despot enough.
Recently i contacted Ryde Family Dentist because my wife damaged her tooth 2 weeks before our wedding, all staff where friendly, professional, informative & the work my wife had done was exceptional. Thanks to Dr NurbojaI my wife could smile for our wedding photos. I have been to more than six dentists throughout Sydney over the last 10 years & for the last 3 years have been repairing the damage caused by them when i go overseas. From now on we will be returning to Ryde Family Dentist.
I have been going to Ines for the last few years and will never look back. After going to a very well know Eastern Suburbs Dentist for many years I was not happy with the care I was receiving and a friend suggested I try Ines. I was immediately impressed with her no fuss approach and friendly care. She understood the problem I was having with my teeth and fixed it up in one appointment. That was a few years ago and now I have referred all my family and friends to her. I am not the kind of person who gives reviews but I believe Dr Ines and her surgery deserves praise. In my view she is one of the best dentists in Sydney and I will keep coming back.
Dr Nurboja was fantastic - great dentist, very professional and I have had no issues whatsoever since. Changed to the Ryde Family Dentist after being recommended by a friend after a string of issues with a Sydney CBD practice and never looking back.
Dr Nurboja is a fantastic, caring and very understanding dentist. After seeing 4 dentists this year re a tooth issue, with none of them being able to identify the problem, it took Dr Nurboja just one look at the xray too determine the issue. Reception staff were fantastic and very helpful also. I couldn't recommend this dentist highly enough.
Dr Nurboja is a caring, accommodating dentist, she understands budget concerns and does her best to help in that respect and genuinely cares about the well being of her clients. I would, and will recommend her to anyone.
A staff at the reception is not flexible at all. Even if it is emergency, staff never book you in as saying we are fully booked. Staff never care about patients, works like a robot. As my front tooth cracks and need to see a doctor as soon as possible, I called the other dentist. Though it is busy and booked out on the day, the doctor kindly spare her time and saw me. So I was able to go to work after that.
We apologise if you were caused any inconvenience. We have kindly asked all of our staff to refocus their attention on ensuring our patients get the best treatment. We would love to see you again in our practice. Please feel free to make an appointment with either Dr Nurboja or Dr Lewis.
I would like to highly recomend Dr Ines Nurboja to everyone young or old. I have tried many dentists for my family members & mostly my 9 year old son & just the thought of the word dentist would scare him. He had 3 teeth extracted with no hesitation with going ahead with the procudure. She is just wonderful & truly amazing. On the way home I couldn't believe that he just kept on saying I feel so much better mum & I cannot wait to go back. I will continue to book appointments & would not go anywhere else.
If your looking for the best honest dentist for yourself or your family members, try Ines, you will not be dissapointed.
