Dr Anna Paxinos

Dr Anna PaxinosDr Anna Paxinos is the founder and principal dentist at Stradbroke Dental.

Education and Experience

Anna lived and grew up in North Balwyn and after finishing school at Balwyn High, pursued a career in dentistry. Her passion for dentistry started at the age of 14 when she did a week of work experience in a dental surgery in Balwyn. This planted the seed and put a fire in her belly to pursue her passion, Dentistry.

After completing her bachelor degree in dental science at Melbourne university in 1988 with honours, she was offered one of few intern positions at the Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne. This took her to Bendigo Base Hospital where she was able to do a wide variety of work in the public dental system.

Anna then worked in private practice as an employee dentist in Carlton in 1990, Ferntree gully in 1993 and Hawthorn from 1994-98. All these , part time, while she started her family. In 1998, she decided it was time to open her own practice, and rented a small commercial space in the Stradbroke shopping centre. Then in 2004 moved in to a purpose build surgery on Burke road, where we have built a successful practice.

Special areas of interest

Anna enjoys and practices all aspects of dentistry, going to conferences and courses regularly and embracing new technology. Her interests lie particularly with:

She loves to rehabilitate the worn dentition and build it back to its original form with the skills 28 years of dentistry has given her, as well as utilising state of the art products and technology that can be used like bonded white fillings, inlays, onlays and crowns.


Dr Anna Paxinos has also trained to deliver anti wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. She has over 35 years experience in injecting and and a keen eye for aesthetic facial symmetry and harmony to give you a refreshed appearance.


She has a great rapport with her patients, and this shows in her genuine concern and care towards them. One of Anna’s most satisfying aspects of dentistry is seeing patients who arrive with a high level of anxiety, leave the appointment relaxed and feeling like they have overcome their fears and anxiety.

Dr Anna Paxinos is extremely passionate and enthusiastic about dentistry and is looking forward to the ever changing concepts that are evolving in the dental field .
