Cheaper rentals allow new Gladstone denture clinic to open
A DROP in rental prices allowed Vanessa Chetty to open her own dental clinic in Gladstone.
Denture Care opened in April this year in central Gladstone.
Mrs Chetty, who is a qualified prosthetist, has worked from home since 2008, as a dental laboratory technician.
Making the change from a home to office business was a big step for the South African woman.
It's something that she is experiencing first hand with her husband too.
"I still do the dentures for other dentists in Gladstone, and some orthodontic work and appliances manufacturing," Mrs Chetty said.
"My husband went into signage business recently too, he's in Brad Busteed's old store.
"Gladstone has quietened down, so we haven't been overly busy."
"It's quite a leap, it's a big change for us but we're hoping it'll pay off," she said.
Denture Care offers all flexible, chrome, new and repairing denture services.
The mother of two has been a qualified prosthetist since 2000.
Denture Care does not offer bulk billed services, however they do have some specials to celebrate their opening.
A current special is the initial consultation for new patients is free.
Denture Care is located at 36 Herbert Street.
