 Mark has been the practice owner at Vermont South Dental since 1997

In 1992 Mark graduated from Melbourne University, he worked in Tamworth and then Brisbane before moving back to Melbourne and starting the practice at Vermont South.



Prevention, Endodontics, Restorative, Cosmetic, Cerec and Implant Dentistry are aspects of care that have emerged and evolved over the years, all of which Vermont south dental continually evolves with.

Mark has 20+ years’ experience in the dentistry and continually attends courses in all aspects of dental care, with special interests in Implants and Cosmetic dentistry.

With 3 children of his own, Mark urges all parents to encourage their kids to start caring for their teeth early on. He is a strong believer in educating patients to create a habit of maintaining a healthy oral care routine. Passionately promoting preventative dentistry, he believes this is the cornerstone for not only good oral health but overall health as well.

Outside of work Mark can be often found over a pan in the kitchen trying out a new recipe.  Either at the kids Soccer or Netball games or building something in the yard. His interests are Soccer, Tennis, & AFL and completing the Kokoda Trail was one of his most memorable experiences.


Since graduating from the University of Melbourne in 2001, Trinh has worked in both public and private practice all around Australia, from Darwin, to Coffs Harbour and Tasmania.



Trinh is an experienced, and gentle dentist who enjoys the variety and challenges she sees in general practice, from caring for your routine dental needs to more challenging treatment like root canal treatment, Veneers, Crowns, Bridges and Implants. Her special interests include Children’s dentistry, Occlusal rehabilitation (i.e.helping to bring health and function back to damaged teeth), preventive and minimal intervention dentistry and oral health promotion.

Trinh is a member of the Australian Dental Association, and keeps up to date with new practices and treatments through continuing education. Away from work Trinh enjoys spending time with her young family, being in the great outdoors, rock climbing and travelling when she can find the time.

Trinh is available for appointments on Tuesday’s and Friday's.
