Meet the Team at Mooloolah Dental

The Mooloolah Dental team are a close-knit group of caring professionals who put you first. With a focus on preventive dental treatment and a commitment to patient care, we're proud to say that we've been a trusted and well-loved dental practice for the Mooloolah Valley and surrounding communities since 1995.

At Mooloolah Dental, we tailor our treatment options around you and your family. Operating as a wholly independent practice makes it possible for us to put you first without being influenced by health fund limitations or dental corporate groups that often rely on volume. 

We truly care, and we take the time to ensure your comfort and wellbeing. Mooloolah Dental provides the consistent, high-quality dental care we would want for ourselves, our families and our friends. 

Dr David Zimmermann, BDSc (QLD)

Principal Dentist

Dr Zimmermann graduated from the University of Queensland in 1978. After working on Thursday Island for two years, he moved to Cairns to work on the Cairns Base Hospital ‘Flying Dental Run,’ servicing towns on Cape York. 

Dr Zimmermann worked for several years in Mossman Hospital Dental Clinic.

He moved to the Sunshine Coast to work at the Nambour Hospital Clinic in 1984. Dr Zimmermann spent the following six years in private practice in Tewantin before starting Mooloolah Dental in October 1995. He enjoys the challenge of solving the full range of oral problems so that the teeth function correctly, feel comfortable and look great.

‘I work with a wonderful team of people who make me feel work is a good place to be. Outside of work, I enjoy surfing with my kids, doing Pilates classes with my wife, Kate, and growing vegetables.’
