Ashmore Dentistry

Ashmore House was built at the height of Ballarat’s gold rush in the late 1800s. The Victorian beauty was built to last the ages, with its strong and elegant brickwork, decorative cornices and striking latticework.

Like Ashmore House, our foundations are strong. We’re one of the oldest established dentists in Ballarat. We pride ourselves on attention to detail, delivering both medical excellence and a keen eye for the aesthetic.

Creating a family practice that will last a lifetime. Understanding the value of
tradition while offering the best of modern dentistry. Looking after our patients and their families for generations to come.

Ashmore Dentistry has been proudly serving the Ballarat Community for 35 years. In early 2019, we rebranded from Ballarat Essential Dental to Ashmore Dentistry, named after our beautiful heritage building at 11 Drummond Street South.
