About the Robina Dental Group

Robina Dental Group strives to provide high quality dental care to its clients and employs suitably qualified, experienced and skilled clinical and non-clinical staff in order to achieve this.

Dr Stephen Valentine - Principal Dentist

The team at Robina Dental Group and Galleon Way Dental Surgery is led by Dr. Stephen Valentine. Steve has spent his entire career providing dental care to the people of the Gold Coast.

He graduated from the University of Queensland in 1995 and spent a short period with the public health service before entering the private sector where he practiced for two years in Tweed Heads and Mudgeeraba. Steve was then appointed as a senior school Dentist responsible for the dental health of school children from Coolangatta to Miami and inland to Numinbah Valley.

Following this challenging and extremely rewarding experience, Steve opened Galleon Way Dental surgery in Currumbin where he provided dental care for over 10 years. Due to the high demand for the quality dental care provided by Steve and his team, it became necessary to expand in 2010 into the larger, modern practice now operating at Robina.

Professionally, Steve loves seeing his long-term patients on a regular basis whom he regards more as friends. He is particularly skilled in treating children of all ages as well as nervous patients and performs all of his dentistry to an exceptional standard. His special interests extend to orthodontics, oral surgery and prosthodontics in addition to full mouth rehabilitation.

Steve has maintained membership throughout his career to the Australian Dental Association and has held executive positions within the Australian Dental Association Gold Coast Sub-Branch as well as the Gold Coast Dental Study Club. Steve is passionate about continuing professional development and attends multiple courses throughout each year to stay abreast of current techniques and technologies.

He has two boys, enjoys all sports and being social with his mates of many years.

Dr Mah Robina DentistDr Geoff Phillips - our new Dentist at Galleon Way Dental

Geoff Phillips is an old hand at dentistry and his dental wisdom and skill is evident upon first impression. ‘Gull’, as he is affectionately know to his mates, graduated dentistry in 1979 from Brisbane’s University of Queensland. Following graduation, Geoff spent his early career working around the state in such places as Mt Isa, Bundaberg and Ipswich. Practice ownership called and thus started a 30 year plan to provide dental services to his fantastic patients in his own practice in Cleveland. Geoff moved to the beautiful Gold Coast following retirement in order to perfect his ‘Goofy footed’ surfing style. It wasn’t long before he realised how much he missed dentistry and that’s where Robina Dental Group came into the picture.

“They have welcomed me into their dental family at Robina and Currumbin Waters and we are now all having fun together.” writes Geoff.
