My Story

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 specialized family-oriented dental 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 30,000 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.
