Now situated in the prestigious new Waratah Private Hospital (opposite Hurstville Library) we provide 1 hour’s free parking for over 250 cars for your convenience.
Our friendly staff will quickly make you feel at home and ensure your visit with us will be as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Then in 2016 Power Dental Practice also took over Dr Harrington’s practice when he retired. In 2018 Dr David Mansfield retired from his practice in Hurstville, so his patients have happily joined our practice, as well.
Dr David Power
General Dentist and Founder
Dr David Power grew up and went to school in the St George area. Graduating from Sydney University with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1986 he started working in Hurstville that year. After several years of study, he was awarded his Membership of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons in General Dental Practice (MRACDS – GDP) in 2014. He started Power Dental Practice in 1988 and has really enjoyed caring for a whole generation of the mouths of Hurstville!
Dr Power has special interests in Implant Dentistry, Oral Surgery, and Special Needs and Nursing Home Care. He has undertaken further study in Implant Dentistry and Theology. He belongs to the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons, the Australian Dental Association, the American Dental Association, the Australian Society of Implant Dentistry, and the Christian Medical and Dental Fellowship of Australia.
Dr Power makes it his custom to learn more about one area of dentistry per year. In 2014 it was Dental Operating Microscopes. He has started to use one routinely at the practice. In 2015 Dr Power started carrying out gum rejuvenation after training in the USA the previous year.
Apart from the technical side of dentistry, Dr Power maintains greatest interest in his practice through the warmth of his long term personal relationships with his patients and staff.
With a delightful wife, son and daughter of his own, Dr Power enjoys family life, children’s work at church, gardening, cycling, junior rugby league and supports the St George/Illawarra Dragons rugby league team. His greatest unrealized ambition is to have a pony of his own.
Dr Ivan Chee, BDent (Syd)
After being brought up on the South coast and in Hurstville Dr Ivan Chee attended Sydney Technical High School, then graduated from the University of Sydney in 2010 after completing a Nuclear Medicine degree and working at Westmead Dental Hospital and Wollongong Hospital. He has also worked in private practices around Sydney, most recently in Miranda.
Ivan’s favourite areas of dentistry would especially be Paediatric Dentistry, Oral Surgery and Crown and Bridgework. In Wollongong Hospital, he has been spending considerable time treating oncology patients, an area in which most dentists do not have a lot of experience. He has a soft heart for elderly nursing home patients and those requiring special care. Expanding his knowledge and skills is constantly on his mind.
Ivan has particular empathy for people who are a little worried in the dental chair, having been that way himself when a child. He strives to help calm these anxieties by providing honest, gentle and thorough care to his patients. Ivan also enjoys talking to young and old patients alike. Ivan speaks Cantonese fluently.
When there is a spare moment, you will find him helping out at church or camping out in the bush, preferably somewhere without mobile reception! The two people Ivan couldn’t do without? His wife and son! His wife keeps him grounded and his son has made him re-evaluate his time and priorities.
Dr Peter Ikonomou
Dr. Peter Ikonomou graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) from the University of Sydney in 1987 and has taken additional courses in Orthodontics and Dental mini-Implants, in particular. He completed the orthodontics series at Sydney Uni in 2010.
Growing up in Sydney’s inner west and attending Fort Street High School; Peter enjoyed playing Rugby in his youth along with surfing, in which he still indulges on occasion!
Having practiced for over 15 years in Ashfield and since then in the city and joining us in 2005, Peter provides a wide range of dental treatment, but has a special interest in orthodontics. He has been placing braces and orthodontic plates and carrying out Invisalign for hundreds of our patients over the past decade. From young children to older adults, Peter is convinced that having teeth in their ideal position is essential to a beautiful smile – the teeth and gum positions look right. Once you have that, most other imperfections can be much more easily overcome.
Peter is married with 5 children who take up a good deal of his time outside of work, along with various church activities. Peter speaks fluent Greek, attends the gym, enjoys fishing with his mates and hopes to keep surfing for a few more years to come.
Dr Jessica Hou
Dr Jessica Hou graduated from the University of Queensland with honours. She started her career in Port Macquarie but has moved back to Sydney after a couple of years to be closer to her family. Jessica decided to become a dentist after discovering it was a career that combined her interests in science, art and caring for others. Jessica is deeply committed to offering the best care to her patients by staying up-to-date with the latest developments in dentistry. She is especially gentle and empathetic towards anxious patients of all ages.
Jessica is passionate about preventative care and promoting oral health to the community. She has been to various childcare centres and worked with the National Dental Foundation to educate people about their oral health. She has also been to Vanuatu as a volunteer delivering emergency dental service to remote communities. When she’s not looking at teeth, Jessica enjoys sketching, yoga and going to the beach.
Dr Hou is also able to speak Mandarin.
Oral Health Therapist
After working as a dental nurse while completing her science degree at Sydney University, Josie went on to complete her Bachelor of Oral Health at Newcastle University with Distinction. Being dual qualified (as both a hygienist and an Oral Health Therapist) allows Josie to provide a wide range of treatment for both children and adults.
Josie is an empathetic clinician with a warm smile and a gentle touch who has extensive experience treating patients form all ages and cultural backgrounds. Her time volunteering in Cambodia as well as travelling around to schools in a dental bus has prepared her well for her current role, which includes visiting nursing homes to provide dental care for the elderly.
Outside of work, Josie enjoys travelling, trying different cuisines and spending time with friends and family.
Josie is able to speak Arabic.
