Tooth be told,
we love our patients
It is important to visit the dentist every 6 - 12 months, even if you have no problems.
It is important for you to regularly update your medical history information, including a comprehensive list of medications that you are taking. To save time, download and fill out your medical history via this form and send it through prior to your appointment to firstname.lastname@example.org
You may not think these are relevant to your teeth, but it is very important to make sure than any procedures we do are completely safe and will not interfere with any of your medical conditions or medications.

Meet the Happy Smiles team
Dr Chloe Gowland
Chloe, originally from Bathurst, completed her degree at Charles Sturt University Orange before relocating to Tamworth in late 2016. She is passionate about good quality general dentistry, with a focus on preventative care and emergency pain relief. Chloe developed an interest in dentistry after suffering a dental trauma as a teenager, so when she says “I know your pain” she really does!
Chloe and her husband Bree took over ownership of the practice in early 2019 and are so happy to have made Tamworth home.
Outside of dentistry Chloe spends most of her time wrangling her two gorgeous boys, Digby and Charlie or having a cup of tea.
Dr Lisanne George
Since growing up in Melbourne and studying dentistry in Sydney, Lisanne was looking for a tree change and decided Tamworth was an amazing opportunity to broaden her knowledge.
She is passionate about all areas of general dentistry, but particularly loves changing peoples perspective on coming to the dentist. She has a lovely and calming personality and prides herself on her ability to put any patient at ease when in her chair.
Outside of work, Lisanne is an avid runner, book reader and loves a good sweet treat, but she keeps that a secret from her patients!
Dr Anushka Fernando
Originally from Sri Lanka, Anushka moved to Melbourne at a young age. She then made the move to Sydney to complete her degree in dentistry but decided she needed a break from the big smoke and was looking to expand her expertise by working in a rural practice, so she chose Tamworth to call home.
She has a particular interest in oral surgery but also loves the challenge of all general dentistry. Anyone that has already met Anushka will know what a pleasure it is to have her as their dentist.
Outside of work, she spends her time travelling, playing tennis and spending time with loved ones.
Amanda (Bell) Mulcahy
Oral Health Therapist
Amanda or as we call her Bell, is our very own, homegrown girl. Bell graduated from high school eager for her gap year as a dental assistant at Happy Smiles with the intention of starting university the following year to study teaching. Oh how 1 year with the Happy Smiles team can change your perspective!
We are very lucky that Bell decided to come back home upon completing a Bachelor of Oral Health Therapy at University of Newcastle. She has a special interest in paediatric dentistry and is always a crowd favourite with the tiny ones.
Outside of working, our forever smiling Bell will be found anywhere outside and hanging out with her two dogs, Rip and Spud.
Oral Health Therapist
Millie is one of our fabulous Oral Health Therapists here at Happy Smiles. She is a Tamworth local who we had the pleasure of working with back in 2017 when she started working. Once Millie completed school she became a gap year girl here until she ventured off to Newcastle University to start her criminology degree. Things took a turn for Millie when she realised after working in dental for a few years that she really loved it and wanted to pursue it for her career.
When you see Millie for your appointment you will love her for all the same reasons we do! She loves what she does and is always looking to educate and help her patients.
When Millie is not working you will probably find her reading a book, spending time with her loved ones or playing with her puppy Lenny.
Sharon was born in Tamworth and started as a dental assistant in 1989 at another busy Tamworth dental practice. Sharon has completed her Cert III and IV in Dental Assisting and Dental Radiography. She has been with Happy Smiles since it opened in 2007 and has been Practice Manager since 2017.
Sharon is very involved within the community and is always looking for new ways for Happy Smiles to raise money for both local and overseas charities.
Travelling around Australia, camping and gardening are only a few of her passions. Oh and Christmas of course, she loooves Christmas!
This is a face you might not see much of around our practice. Meet Bree, he is the business brains of our operation here at Happy Smiles - his work behind the scenes keeps the business up and running.
During his time of owning Happy Smiles, Bree has become extremely skilled at girl talk, as the girls well and truly outnumber him.
When he is not working on one of his many ventures, Bree loves playing soccer and anything motorsport but his greatest love is spending time with his boys Digby and Charlie.
