Gazing Out to Sea

While all our clinicians perform general dentistry, we all have special interests in various areas. Steve & Eoin lead the way when it comes to Smile Design & Smile Makeovers, crowns and veneers. Eoin having completed a 3 year Masters in Prosthodontics, and Steve having 1 year Certificate in Aesthetic & Cosmetic Dentistry - both completed in London. We believe no one else on the South Coast is more qualified than us to create a winning smile. Eoin also has an interest in Dental Implant Surgery & Dentures, while Steve does a lot of Wisdom Tooth Surgery. 


Dr Steve Tangney & the team are guided by two simple philosophies: To do it right the first time & to smile and have fun along the way. 

We strive to create a fun and happy working environment for our team. That platform allows us to provide outstanding continuity of care to our patients. It's one of the reasons why people have been coming to the clinic for over 40 years

We believe in doing it right the first time. We stand over the quality of all the treatment we provide, whether it is routine dental care or more complex treatments. This is why we offer warranties on major dental*, like crowns. 

We will be there for you when you need us most. If you are in pain or have a dental emergency we hold specific appointments for you on the day if you call before 10am. 


We believe in the importance of choice when it comes to your health. We accept veterans affairs & all private health insurance schemes, however, we have no contractual obligations with those schemes. This means that they can't dictate to us what treatments you can or can't have, maintaining your right to choose which option is best for your individual needs.

To be sure, to be sure.

Dr Steve Tangney started Tidy Tooth in 2018. Prior to that the practice had been operational 40 years. Steve previously worked at Avenue Dental on the Sunshine Coast. A workplace that was awarded the best place to work in Australia in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and the 2nd best in all of Australasia. He also worked at a top clinic during his residency in London, Parrock Street Dental Care, and was honoured with a post graduate Cert. in Aesthetic & Cosmetic Dentistry in 2011. Steve brings all his experience, modern thinking and techniques to offer comprehensive and predictable dentistry to the South Coast. 

In July 2020, Dr Eoin Lehane and Anna-liisa Donnelley joined and we have expanded the opening hours and services we offer. Eoin became a co-owner in July 2022. We have also added some really exciting technology - An Airflow for better cleans and a Cerec System for making same day crowns. Steve also bought new dental chairs, sterilisers and revamped the reception area. We are not stopping there though... 


We are currently setting up a new premises to expand our services further. The sister premises will be a custom built 4 surgery clinic. We are hoping to have this open by the end of 2021 after the fires & Covid put a halt to everything. We will be advertising shortly for new dental professionals to join our fun, approachable team. Let us know if you are interested in coming aboard. An option exists to join as a principal dentist also.

Steve is temporarily reducing his clinical hours to work on the smooth opening of our sister premises. The downside is that it may be more difficult to get an appointment in the short term, however the obvious upside is when we have greater capacity, it will be easier to get appointments again.
