About our Cheltenham dental team


Dr. Tony HeilbergAfter graduating from Melbourne University, Tony worked in various private general dentistry practices before he ventured out to start his own in 1980. He has now been working from his Cheltenham surgery since 1987 and with more than 30 years experience in the dental industry, he maintains a family oriented practice.
