About Us

Catering for your needs while we put you at ease…

At Marketplace Dental in Wagga, we put your needs first. We understand that everyone is different, and we’re here to listen, get to know you and look after your dental health for as long as possible.

Maybe you haven’t been to the dentist in years, or need help with anxiety through sedation options. Perhaps you have a preference for a male or female dentist. Or maybe you have complex issues and need to talk closely with a friendly, caring dentist to make an ongoing plan. No matter what the reason, we believe in treating you as an individual and always remaining flexible. So come and say hello at our beautifully air-conditioned clinic. We’re easy to find, too – conveniently located in the heart of Marketplace Shopping Centre.

Excellent Dental Health Insurance Rebates

We’re registered with all health insurance funds and are preferred providers with NIB, Medibank Private, BUPA and HCF, so if you’re with these health funds, you can enjoy set prices and get more money back.

A special focus on kids’ dental

Your children’s teeth are so important, and it’s essential they learn how to look after them and develop good habits with both personal oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups. And that’s why we’re here to help. Our team has a special focus on children’s dental, with some of our dentists having extra qualifications in paediatric dental medicine.

We’ll make sure your child’s first appointment is an enjoyable one and look forward to giving them their best chance in dental health.

Anxious or scared of the dentist?

There’s no need to be anxious. At Marketplace Dental, we’ll take the time to put you at ease and have a range of sedation options you can choose.

We have oral medications, depending on your level of anxiety, and also nitrous oxide (happy gas) so you can sit back, relax and not have a care in the world. Just let our reception team know that you feel little anxious before your visit, and we’ll look after you.

Dr Xu’s professional career spans over many years and has seen him working in clinics in our neighbouring towns Gundagai and Tumut, as well as the coastal town of Ulladulla.

A caring and patient dentist, Dr Xu practices a wide range of procedures: wisdom teeth removal, difficult root canal therapy and cosmetic dentistry, and is a strong believer in pain-free dentistry. When Dr Xu is not working, he likes to spend time with his family and kids, cooking, and furthering his education.
