Hello, I am Dr Alex Maer and I’d like to personally welcome you to my practice, DentalCare Carnegie. My team and I are here to look after you and we hope you have a comfortable and pleasant experience. I have been serving the local community for over 15 years. After graduating at the top of my class with Honours from the University of Melbourne, I moved to Ballarat for a year to work in a local dental clinic and gain a wide range of surgical experience. I then moved back to Melbourne and worked as a Senior Associate at East Bentleigh Dental Group for over 10 years, where I thoroughly enjoyed becoming a part of the local community.
Taking this experience into consideration, I have designed DentalCare Carnegie to be a state-of-the-art boutique practice, with a particular emphasis on patient comfort and care, as the name suggests. It is always a real privilege getting to know my patients over an extended time, treating entire families and making sure their experience at their dental appointments is comfortable and they leave smiling! I have special interests in crown and bridge work, implant dentistry, Root Canal Treatment, sleep dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, children dentistry as well as other general dentistry.
In my career I have successfully treated over 20,000 patients, many of whom have become friends. I have extensive experience treating nervous patients, children, special needs patients. Whether you need basic dentistry, all the way through to full mouth reconstructions with implants, crowns and bridges, I can look after you with skill and compassion.
I enjoy treating patients of all ages and I am committed to achieving optimum results for all my patients. I pride myself on being gentle, friendly and caring and I will go the extra mile to ensure all my patients are looked after and are happy with their treatment results.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have two little girls, who always put a smile on my face and who never turn down a chance at “going for a ride” in the dentist’s chair! I am an avid reader, enjoy discussions about health and politics and I am always interested in meeting new people and learning new things. I look forward to meeting you and will strive to look after your dental health to the absolute best of my ability and to form a lifelong doctor-patient relationship.

Most people will require a complex surgical extraction of a tooth sometime during their life. It’s not a procedure patients particularly look forward to, but it certainly doesn’t need to be feared or put off. Many patients undergoing orthodontic treatment and may require extractions or exposure of unerupted teeth as part of the overall treatment, while some teens and young adults will require extraction of wisdom teeth as they come of age.
Here at DentalCare Carnegie we employ the expert services of Dr Paul Aulakh, a dedicated professional Dental Surgeon who has special interest in the areas of implantology and complex extractions. He has decades of experience in this field and has acquired skills to complete these procedures with ease, and aims to minimise patients' anxiety.
Extraction of wisdom teeth is in most cases a routine procedure and can be completed by Dr Paul Aulakh in one visit. All four wisdom teeth can be removed at your appointment. We recommend patients take a couple of days off school or work to aid in the healing process.
The average cost of extracting all four wisdom teeth is $1400, inclusive of consultation. When an OPG x-ray is required, an additional fee of $125 will apply.
Many people do not realise that most wisdom teeth can be removed quickly and easily under Local Anaesthetic, thus avoiding the need to go into hospital and be put to sleep under a General Anaesthetic. An extraction of 4 wisdom teeth in hospital under a General Anaesthetic can often cost over $3500. Hence, having the procedure at our clinic significantly reduces cost and recovery, which means you can get on with your life faster!
