About
Us

There are plenty of reasons to smile when you live in Emerald and Blackwater. We should know – Emerald Dental Group was set up on Egerton Street over 20 years ago by Dr Warren Wells as Egerton Street Dental Surgery.

Dr Brad Stanley came on the scene in 1995, working for Dr. Wells for the next 5 years, he then bought the practice outright in Jan 2000.

Since then Dr Brad has expanded and modernised the dental surgery. Dr Christy Bellarmine joined Emerald Dental Group in 2007. Blackwater Dental Group was opened in September 2012. Dr Deepika Katragadda joined us in 2016.

Dr Brad, Dr Christy & Dr Deepika all regularly attend Continuing Education Conferences to further enhance their skills and improve on the services we can provide to our patients.
