Dr Michael Maltby.

Sunshine Coast Dental Surgeon

Michael started Kawana Dental as a solo, single-chair practice in 1987. He spent 30 years building what is now one of the largest and most highly regarded dental practices on the Sunshine Coast.

Michael was a pioneer in dentistry, particularly in the field of clear aligner orthodontics (Invisalign). He was a mentor to the dentists who he hand-picked to join his practice, dentists he could see shared his values of honesty, integrity and utmost patient care. He was incredibly proud of his team, who really were part of the family.


Michael sadly passed away in April, 2019. We are honoured to continue his legacy at Kawana Dental. He will be remembered by his family, his team and his patients as a gentle, loving, incredibly kind soul. He remains always in our thoughts.
