Marc grew up in Roma where his father, uncle and brother all worked as dentists.  With a family background of being a small town professional, Marc is committed to high quality general dentistry with a strong focus on prevention and long term patient care.  His number one goal is to provide the most pain free and caring dentistry possible, but not compromise on providing the best quality dentistry.  He believes that being a professional means standing behind one’s workmanship and always striving to learn and improve.  ‘I see patients regularly reaching their 80’s and 90’s and know that they need a supportive skilled professional with long-term vision to help people  reach this age with quality dental health’.

Also a water colour artist, Marc has a keen interest in cosmetic dentistry and in creating natural looking beautiful smiles.  To help achieve this aim, he regularly attends extensive ongoing training in all areas of dentistry, especially cosmetics, complex crown and bridge, endodontics, and implants.  He has committed to more than 80 hours of ongoing training per year to gain experience in all aspects of dentistry.  He has undertaken advanced training in Invisalign Orthodontics for straightening teeth without wires.  He is a member of the Australian Society for Implant Dentistry and the Australasian Osseointegration Society with accreditation in implant placement.  He has completed advanced training in cosmetic gum surgery for enhanced aesthetics.  He is interested in sleep medicine and dentistry and is a member of the Australasian Sleep Society.

Beyond dentistry Marc enjoys time with friends, piano, tennis, golf, painting, and swimming.

Dr Jacob De Luchi

Dentist

Jacob graduated from the University of Queensland, and has been very well received by both our new and existing patients thanks to his gentle approach and caring personality. Jacob believes that prevention is the best treatment, and strives to help his patients understand why dental problems may occur, and then working together with them towards achieving a stable and healthy smile. He believes that it is important to listen and understand the needs of each of the patients and families in his care, and feels as though a healthy, happy mouth is achievable and maintainable for everyone.

Coming from a large family, Jacob is comfortable relating to both adults and children, and recognises the priorities and challenges that present at different ages. He always allows time to explain treatment options and what to expect with procedures, putting his patients at ease. Whether your appointment is for a regular 6-monthly visit, routine or emergency treatment, Jacob will take the necessary time and care to ensure that you are as comfortable and relaxed as possible.

Jacob enjoys the diverse nature of working in general dental practice, and is excited about the direction that modern dentistry is heading. He aims to provide the highest quality care possible to his patients, and is constantly improving his skills through continuing education in all areas of general dentistry and particularly in new treatment options, materials and technology.

Jacob has lived locally on the North side of Brisbane for most of his life, and outside the practice, he spends a lot of his time outdoors maintaining a handful of hobbies with friends and family when the weather (or surf report) is favourable.  Jacob also plays football for his local club.

Dr David Stuhmcke

Dentist

David Graduated with a Bachelor of Science from UQ in 2010 and studied dentistry at the University of Sydney graduating in 2015. Before moving back to Sunshine State and joining our team David worked for NSW Health at Westmead Hospital, where he treated a wide range of patients from young children to the more elderly. He also has experience treating patients with special needs, medically compromised patients and extremely anxious patients.

David understands that for many people coming to the dentist can be an unpleasant experience, so he endeavours to make every patient visit as comfortable as possible. David has seen first-hand what delaying treatment, often simply due to a patient’s anxiety, can mean. A delay in treatment will often impact on long term prognosis of that tooth, and lead to a more time consuming and expensive treatment, more pain and discomfort for that patient. Given this David has completed extra training in Nitrous Oxide sedation and is qualified to use that when needed or requested for any patient, particularly those who are a little bit anxious.
David enjoys all aspects of dentistry and tries to take a preventative approach where possible. He strongly believes in educating his patients about the importance of home care maintenance, as whatever he does in the dental chair needs to be complimented at home with twice day brushing and regular flossing. David believes that communication is imperative to the responsibilities of a dentist and always aims to clearly and adequately explain things to his patients in a manner than is easy to understand. David also has a particular interest in endodontics (root canals), as he like the methodical and often challenging nature of them.

When David is not at work he enjoys cooking, reading, running and spending time at the beach.

Having worked in the dental industry for many years, Hanh has developed a drive for providing ethical and quality dentistry. Hanh has a strong focus on prevention and enjoys the challenges of restoring both the teeth and supporting gum tissues back to health and function. Her heart lies in helping our patients feel at ease, while providing professional and friendly care. Hanh treats her patients like she would her friends and family, as she believes everyone deserves the utmost respect and care. Hanh takes pride in being thorough and takes her time to ensure your dental care is tailored to you.

When Hanh is not behind the dental chair, she enjoys cooking new plant-based recipes, stretching out with some yoga and exploring new hiking trails – both locally and abroad.

In Stephanie’s spare time she is usually planning her next meals to cook or trying out a new fitness trend. Stephanie is currently trying her hand at CrossFit, and has tried everything from gymnastics, aerial hoop and reformer Pilates.

Founding Dentist

Retired 21st June 2018.

After 43 years as a Dentist the time has come for me to announce my retirement as of June 2018.  As many of you will appreciate, a lot of thought has gone into this decision and although it has not been easy, it is time for me to embrace change and to spend some valuable time with Jenny, my children and the grandchildren. 

I began working with Dr Marc Miller in 2000, leading to a successful business partnership for the past ten years.  Marc took full ownership of Nundah Village Dental in 2017.  Our Practice Manager Trudy Webster began working with me in 1986 and has for many years been responsible for the day to day management of the practice and the team. Marc and Trudy work incredibly well together and I know that I couldn’t have asked for a better team to lead Nundah Village Dental into the future.  Every member of this team continually work hard to make our practice the best that it can be. 

I appreciate that seeing a new dentist can be daunting, however I am confident the practice values, ethics and care that have been so important to me are stronger than ever within the practice. I believe there isn’t a better dental practice for you to be a patient. This team that I work with share my core values, we all believe in the best care for the patient, they have all of my detailed records on file and they will continue to listen to you, explain your best treatment options and help you choose what is best for you.   

I will miss so many of you as it has often been a personal as well as professional relationship, but I know you will all have a quiet giggle to yourself when down the track  you spot me in the waiting room on the other side. 

Thank you always for the loyalty and trust that you have provided to me.  This is what has contributed to my success and what allows me to walk away from dentistry with nothing but wonderful memories.
