Our History

The Dental Surgery, Newstead has been serving the Launceston community for over 45 years.  The practice was started by Dr Bill Edmonson in 1971 in its current location after a brief introductory period in David Street, Newstead. The Practice changed hands twice in the late 1990s and was then operated by Dr Richard Claase for 12 years until 2011, growing the practice over this time.

Dr Chris Sanzaro commenced employment with Richard in 2007. Richard was gracious enough to allow Chris to commence refurbishment starting in 2009. Chris was very fortunate to become Practice Owner in 2011 and has continued the refurbishment process since then. In 2017, the Practice increased from three dental chairs to four. The Practice now has a dedicated lab area, allowing some dental appliances to be made on-site. The Dental Surgery, Newstead is pleased to provide both patients and staff with a comfortable environment and state of the art equipment throughout.
