Meet Our Dentist

Meet Dr John Hanna

Dr Hanna graduated with a Masters of Dentistry from La Trobe University, Bendigo, where he was recognised as the highest achieving individual from his cohort. Dr Hanna is a genuine believer that ‘the pursuit of knowledge is never-ending, and the day you stop seeking knowledge is the day you stop growing.’ He is committed to enhancing his skills on a daily basis to guarantee his valued patients are receiving the most professional and up-to-date care.

Dr Hanna also practices dentistry with the notion of ‘treating others how you would like to be treated’, and, as such, it's more than just dentistry for him. Dr Hanna takes immense pride and makes a solid commitment in getting to know his patients on a personal level, and goes above and beyond to build and gain that trust to ensure he cares for their overall wellbeing.

Our valued patients constantly comment on how they respect and appreciate Dr Hanna’s humble, humorous and friendly personality. His ability to keep them comfortable, trusting and safe is what keeps them coming back. He prides himself on being a good listener, and displays a genuine interest in his patients' concerns so he can support them in finding a personal solution. As a nervous patient himself, Dr Hanna is very compassionate and empathetic towards his patients and his gentle and patient nature allows them to gain control over their nerves.

Dr Hanna cares for a diverse clientele, and understands that no two individuals are the same. Therefore, he works closely with his patients to understand their needs and expectations and, in turn, customise a treatment plan that meets their requests. Dr Hanna practices dentistry with absolute precision and provides treatment that is long lasting, aesthetically pleasing, and of the highest quality. He is skilled in all aspects of dentistry, including preventative, minimally-invasive dentistry, implantology, root canal, veneer, crown and bridge work, and extractions. However, patient education is what Dr. Hanna portrays as being most important, as that will empower patients with the skills needed to maintain healthy teeth for life.

‘Behind every great man is a great woman’ – Dr Hanna is happily married to his beautiful other half Mariam, whom he loves dearly. Dr Hanna enjoys keeping fit and participates in a wide variety of sports, particularly soccer and tennis, in his spare time, and he loves the AFL.

General Dentistry

Benefits of tooth-coloured composite fillings:

Natural appearance and texture: Being the same colour as your natural teeth, they blend in beautifully with your smile, and won't stain your teeth grey like the silver fillings would. They are also safer for the environment and for you.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a procedure used to relieve pain caused by a nerve that has become inflamed or infected most commonly by tooth decay.

It is an ideal treatment option as it allows an individual to keep their tooth even though the nerve inside the tooth may have become inflamed or infected. Despite all the advances in technology, nothing compares to your natural teeth.

New Patient Examination

At Yarra Dental, we appreciate that a new enviroment could create feelings of anxiety, which is why our friendly and professional staff put you at ease the moment you walk into our practice.

Being a practice that prides itself on its thoroughness and dedication to patient care, your initial examination is a longer appointment, which is of no added cost to you. Our examination process is very comprehensive, and we begin by getting to know you on a personal level in order to build a genuine trusting relationship. We listen attentively to your needs.

A thorough exam is then performed of all the structures associated with the mouth, not just the teeth. You are in control of the examination process from start to end, and the importance and findings of each stage are explained to you as we progress through the exam. Dental radiographs may then be needed to further examine the underlying structures that can’t be seen with the naked eye.

Preventive Dentistry

At Yarra Dental, our Preventative Dentistry Program is at the heart of our patient care. It is the foundation that ensures our valued patients maintain healthy teeth for life.

The key to the prevention of disease(s) is patient education, and, at Yarra Dental, we are committed to thoroughly providing you with the knowledge you need to ensure your teeth and oral structures are taken care of.
