ABOUT REFRESH DENTAL SPA

At Refresh Dental Spa ensuring our patients enjoy optimum dental health and feel good about themselves is our highest priority. That’s why, in addition to a comprehensive range of essential and cosmetic dental services, we provide a range of facial cosmetic services. For many people, the reality is that once they stop feeling self-conscious about their smile and other features, what’s within begins to shine through.

If you have been putting off visiting a dentist because you are concerned about the cost or you feel anxious, don’t worry. We have a range of payment options and we are experts at making you feel relaxed and comfortable. The important thing is that you get the treatment that you need, the rest we can work out through open communication and discussing your options. 

We also understand that work and family life place huge demands on your time. We have efficient systems to ensure that we run to time consistently without compromising our level of care and attention. We respect your time but we will never make you feel rushed

Our team has also been thoughtfully put together with each member completely dedicated to their role and applying our core principle of complete care and attention to the individual needs of our clients. In 2018 Refresh Dental Spa was joined by Dr Nick Sheptooha and his team from Nick Sheptooha Dental further increasing the depth of talent and range of services we can provide. 

Our Dentists

Dr Kristina Cain – Principal Dentist

Dr Kristina Cain completed her studies at the University of Queensland and developed her experience in private practices in Cairns, Sydney, and Brisbane before realising her vision for Refresh Dental Spa as a practice offering comprehensive dental and cosmetic services.

Kristina prides herself on her ability to relate to people of all ages and make them feel at ease.  She believes that the prevention of dental and facial degeneration is a vital key to a happy and healthy life and is passionate about helping people with these issues.

Her special interest in cosmetic enhancements, implant crowns, crown and bridgework, QST (quick straight teeth), and especially facial aesthetics, has seen Kristina achieve special recognition. She is a  Fellow of the International Academy of Dento-Facial Esthetics (IADFE) in New York and was formerly a trainer for the Australasian Academy of Dento-Facial Aesthetics (AADFA). 

As further testament to her professional skills, Dr Cain is a Dental Consultant on the Dental Advisory Panel for Experien which provides peer support to dentists around Australia. She is also devoted to continued professional education and enjoys sharing her experience to help with the education of dental students and dental staff alike.

Outside of treating and caring for patients,  Kristina enjoys spending time with her husband, children and border collie, travelling, health and fitness, watching movies, and peaceful retreats to the beach and great outdoors.

Kristina is available to see patients Monday – Friday.
