Hi, I’m Sally, the proud owner of Excellence in Dentistry

I’ve been practicing dеntіѕtrу ѕіnсе 2000, both in Auѕtrаlіа and аbroad.

One thing I’ve learnt through my years of practice, is that: majority of people don’t like dentists!!!

But – Teeth have always fascinated me; weird! I know! But think about it, your teeth are an inseparable part of your smile, and as they say, ‘your smile is your logo’.

After finishing dental school, I worked both in the public and private sector for a while, before joining UNICEF as Health and Nutrition assistant. In 2010, I decided to open my own practice, which afforded me the freedom to take care of people’s dental wellness in ways I always envisioned my patients deserved—Excellence In Dentistry! A practice built around patients’ needs and expectations.

I finished a “Masters degree in Implantalogy” from Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany. Also, I’ve done further training in Orthodontics and TMD.

We understand Exсеllеnсе In Dеntіѕtrу’s success is аttrіbutеd to being intentionally different & understanding your smile is our reputation

Dr Sally Farhandi

She’s the boss of the floss! Our enthusiastic hygienist, she is so thorough with her cleans, that you’ll feel your teeth squeaking clean at the end!  She is also the one who lectures our patients on how to clean their teeth, we’ve never seen anybody who doesn’t improve their teeth hygiene after visiting her!


 Our front office coordinator, our busy bee caring for all our patients, who goes way out of her way to accommodate and assist our patients. Lidia has been with us for many years now through thick and thin. We’ve seen her growing up from a young girl to an accomplished woman. She’s more of a family than a colleague. Her mum, Lepa is the best cook in the world and her dad Mick is the best host we’ve ever known.


Anna is my super nurse. We make the best dentist-nurse team. I swear sometimes, she reads my mind when she holds an instrument in front of me that I was just thinking of asking for! She is very gentle and has a calm nature which is comforting for our patients


Vicky’s been an inseparable part of our family for many years now, she used to be our kids’ full-time nanny. When the boys started school, we decided we did not want to let go of a hardworking and trustworthy coworker so that’s the reason we offered to train her to become a dental nurse which she welcomed happily. These days, she assists at the practice and helps us with our kids at home. We credit her with our boys’ love of reading books in the digital world. She used to read for our boys for hours and hours since they were very little until they started reading on their own.


Practice manager and my husband. I asked him to help me with the management of the practice just for a couple months after my first son was born in 2011. And we realised we really enjoy working together. Having a Master of Business Administration from QUT enables him to be in his element managing our business and I can focus on what I’m good at; taking care of people’s dental needs. That’s how we became partners at work as well as home. Our patients love his friendly and down to earth attitude and enjoy having long chats with him before or after their appointments. The popular topics are motorbikes, watches, tennis, football and politics!!!
