We are committed to delivering dental care that is of the highest quality in a modern, friendly and healing environment.

Our main focus are in the areas of 

  • general family dentistry

To achieve this we are constantly researching and educating our team on the implementation of new technologies and treatment techniques. We are not only building to our existing skill set; we are providing our patients with the most complete dentistry available.

We utilise the latest dental technology including

  • A wide range of anaesthetic options to suit your level of anxiety about dental treatment
  • 3D xray to be able to find and diagnose your problems earlier
  • an operating microscope for that extra level of precision in the work we provide to you

Taking the utmost pride in our community, we strive to make a real difference by improving our patient’s oral health, one smile at a time.

The Compass contribution to maintaining happiness in the community is to smile, and smile a lot. Our goal is to make each and every patient walk away with something to smile about.

Pain free fillings

5 50 Fillings, Teeth Cleaning • Paid: $850

I enquired about a consultation and they fit me in the next day. Over the next few days I had my treatment. Pain free and amazing. Treatment wasn't expensive either. Very good prices. I got 4 fillings and a clean and I cost me under 900$.

The clinic is brand new, it was only 2 days old when I visited. Very clean and sterile. All staff were so friendly and helpful. Dr Thien was amazing. I highly recommend this clinic. They also provide free consultations which is great!

Job Title:
  Conservative Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry, Dental Examinations, Endodontics, Functional Aesthetic Dentistry, General Dentistry, Oral Surgery, Restorative Dentistry
  English, Vietnamese

My name is Dr. Thien Pham and I’m the principal dentist at Compass Dental Care. I practice on the philosophy that empathy is the starting point for creating a community and taking action. It’s the impetus for creating change and it is the greatest gift of human beings.

I am committed to making a difference in each patient I meet and aim to provide dental care that focuses on excellence and humanity. To achieve this takes hard work, commitment to continual improvement, and most importantly, empathy.   

After graduating from the University of Melbourne in 2003, I joined the Army where I served for over 10 years and during this time, I met


people from all walks of life. From people who were at the very top of their circles to the humblest of human beings,  it took me to some of the most remotest parts of Australia and the world to practice dentistry and challenged me to constantly improve myself so that I could overcome any of the unknown challenges that might be just around the corner.

I finished my post-graduate studies in both oral sugery and sedation dentistry and received admission into the fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons in 2007.  I found that the more he studied, the higher the calibre of professionals that I met and I’ve wanted to emulate the world’s teachers in order to be able to provide the best care that I possibly can.

I started Compass Dental Care in Darwin with a vision to connect back to the community and to one day become a compass of dentistry in Darwin.  I am seeking to attract the very best minds and skills to help me to make a difference to each and every person that we meet, smile by smile.
