Dr Arthur Shizas (Principal Dentist)

Since the tender age of 12, Arthur harboured a dream to become a dentist. This early aspiration was the driving force behind his dedicated academic journey, culminating in a Bachelor of Dental Surgery from Adelaide University in 1994. His time at university wasn’t just about acquiring knowledge; it was here that he developed a deep fascination for the surgical aspect of dentistry, a field in which he now excels. Arthur’s professional journey has been significantly shaped by his personal experiences with dental phobia.
Understanding the anxiety and fear associated with dental visits, Arthur has specialised in providing care for patients who feel nervous or apprehensive about dental treatments. His empathy stems from his own past fears of invasive dental procedures. Overcoming his phobia and finding a dentist who made him comfortable turned out to be a transformative experience for Arthur, and it’s this level of comfort and reassurance he aims to offer at East Adelaide Dental Studio.

It’s rewarding to make a difference in people’s lives, improving their dental health, getting them out of pain or fixing their smile while putting them at ease.”
