Sparkle Dental Care

Meet the Team at Sparkle Dental Care - Fairfield

In 2007, after over 30 years of serving the Fairfield and Alphington community, Dr. Joseph Hoffmann retired from dentistry. Dr. Kenny and Dr. Kai took over the practice, and in 2010, they moved it to the current Station Street location. Now conveniently located near shops, the practice maintains the quality and care that the community has come to know and focuses on providing optimal dental solutions according to patient's individual needs.
