Client Testimonials

Thank you everyone for fixing me up in such short notice. Staff were very professional and very efficient/thorough. Grant is fantastic with a great sense of humour. Thanks so much, I really appreciate it after such a traumatic experience via a different dentist. I highly recommend Southside Sedation.

Laïta Nozaïc

Recommend Southside Sedation to anyone, they are all super friendly. I was always worried about going to the dentist but these guys make it pain free and they don't cost heaps, I even get to pay it off on a plan. They are not after as much money as they can get and the genuinely put your best interests first.

Heather Smith

Thank you so much to everyone at Southside Sedation for making me feel so comfortable while getting my wisdom teeth removed, everyone working there were beyond lovely and made it easy to relax before going under, also the whole procedure was completely pain free and it’s been over 24hours since I've had them out and I haven't had any pain at all! Thanks so much guys I truly appreciate you all xx

Nicole Barbi

So happy with the treatment I had today, four wisdom teeth removed. After hearing all the horror stories of wisdom teeth coming out I was very pleased with Grant and the Team at Southside Sedation. Thank you guys for making this experience as pain free as possible. Even post op when the anesthetic wore off there was no pain at all. Thank you again!!

Chanel Ling

My husband had wisdom teeth out today. He has a phobia of dentists and needles. The service today was brilliant. Big thank you to the team at Southside Sedation. Would not hesitate to recommend your business

Tina Bishop

Extremely happy with the service I had received a few weeks ago. I fear having to visit the dentist, so some form of sedation is usually in order! I highly recommend Doctor Golombick and the team, as professionalism, genuine care and a regard for your comfort is their priority. My many follow-up questions were answered and Doctor Golombick took the time to explain everything with patience. Many thanks!

Azura Dee van Vliet

Had a great experience at Southside Sedation. Staff were very friendly and made me feel very comfortable during my procedure. Highly recommended!!

Kyiesha Craig

I have never had a tooth removed before in my life and I needed all 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted. I did not want to go under sedation so I decided on local numbing and I was a little nervous. As soon has I met Dr. Grant and staff in person all my nerves subsided and I was in the chair ready to start. I did not feel any pain, discomfort or fear. I felt relaxed enough to even open my eyes. I have had no swelling or pain after the procedure and I am healing very, very well. I would like to thank you Dr. Grant and all the staff at Southside Sedation for the best first (hopefully last ????) TEETH extraction ever! I am not nervous about going to the dentist anymore, they are not there to hurt you or make you uncomfortable they are only trying to help you and that is why I will defiantly be back here again if I ever need work done! Thank you all so, so much! I highly recommend more than just 5 stars for Dr. Grant! He was so informative about the whole procedure, gentle and professional. I couldn't ask for a better Dentist!

Marisa Galea

Mark and Grant are very good and are no fuss. I feel nervous about going to the dentist but I don't feel that way anymore, been here several times in last few months and don't mind the idea of having to go again. Nurses are friendly and the clinic has a nice ambience about it. Thanks guys (for the extraction today).

Mark Porton

Great service! Got wisdom tooth removed- no swelling and very little pain afterwards! Very highly recommended!!

Gilbert Jansen

Highly recommend! Had one of my molars removed and it was so quick and painless. Very friendly and welcoming staff.

Vanessa Vaikko

Highly recommend!! I've recently had some challenging wisdom teeth removed by Southside Sedation. As a first major medical situation for me this was a scary thing to do by myself but the team were so supportive and caring! The experience could not have been more successful. Their service is well above and beyond professional, Grant and his team of Wonder Woman's are definitely the place you want to book with.

Ariana Williams

I had some fairly major dental work done this afternoon. Several hours worth in fact. I am not a fan of the dentist (Read: petrified and jelly legged) and from the first contact and consultation right through to walking out the door afterwards today, the compassion, understanding and empathy directed my way has made a traumatic experience bearable and definitely worthwhile. I will be back. This time with my kids.

Leigh Hodgkins

I was terrified of dentist until I went and saw Mark Archer from Southside Sedation. He has a very calming and gentle approach. I would definitely recommend seeing him for dental work if you have a young child or even if you are an adult like myself who has a phobia of seeing a dentist.

Bee Ashwell

Had my surgery done on Tuesday, 4th April. My work was 4 impacted wisdom teeth, 3 pre-molars extraction and an impacted adult canine tooth - 8 teeth in total in 2 hours. Went home that night feeling the normal side effects of the work but absolutely no pain at all! It is now day 2 of my post op and there's very minimal swelling, I can feel the sutures in my mouth but no pain. Dr. Grant and his team are very, very gentle and professional. Thank you so much for a painless and easy experience.


Dr. Grant and his team are true professionals! From my initial consultation, to the procedure and now post-op I cannot fault them! I expected lots of pain, bruising and swelling and have been very pleasantly surprised just how little there has been. Great prices too! I will definitely be recommending Southside Sedation to anyone looking to have wisdom teeth removed. Thank you for a stress free experience.

Stacie Soper

True professionals that display caring and empathy for their patients. Our 14 year old daughter had to have 6 extractions ! She was scared and apprehensive about the procedure however after preliminary consultation with the staff of Southside Sedation she was settled. All procedures were explained in a professional manner by well trained staff. We recommend Southside Sedation to anyone for any procedure if the care given to our daughter is an example of the care given to all patients far exceeded our expectations. Thanks very much Grant and your team.

Ian Poole

AMAZING. The best customer service. Reception staff went out of their way so we had all the information from our very first enquiry. Dr Golombick could not do enough to make our daughter feel safe and at ease with her procedure. They rang us a few times the day after the procedure to check and make sure everything was ok. We won't be using anyone else for any further work our daughter needs done.

Raelene Henery

Big thank you to the team at Southside Sedation! Had all four wisdom teeth out last week with minimal swelling, bruising and pain afterward! Very happy with this result and the outstanding service you provided to me on the day Definitely recommend to all!

Hannah Zappala

WOW!!! Southside Sedation were amazing from start to finish. The staff were all so lovely compared to other dentist practices in Cairns and I couldn't recommend them more to anyone that is looking at going to the dentist.

Elizabeth Anderson

Dr Grant is a MAGICIAN of the dental kind. All the staff are friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend Southside Sedation for all your dental needs. They have saved me a world of pain. Thank You Dr Grant and Team!!

Bree Gorman

Dr Golombick was very approachable and explained the procedure thoroughly to me. The procedure was quick and efficient, relatively painless, and over before I knew it! Post-op instructions were carefully explained. Rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Very impressed and will return in the (hopefully distant) future.

Tyler Chin

I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed 3 days ago, I've been putting it off for years because I was scared. Grant and his team were fantastic and my recovery so far has been nowhere near as painful as I expected. A lovely and accommodating bunch of people, I can't thank them enough

Charlotte Bowden

I was petrified to begin with!! But, what a great facility. Highly recommended. All the staff were excellent & went out of their way to make me feel comfortable & meet my needs. I will definitely be using Southside Sedation for any future procedures and recommend them to everyone.

Mark Archer is hands down one of the best dentists! Every time I go to the dentist I feel relaxed and really taken care of. Recommend this dentist surgery to everyone!

Kara-Lee Fryz

After getting all 4 wisdom teeth removed just this morning, I am not only feeling stable, I have very minimal swelling and pain! Thank you so much to the team at Southside Sedation, I will be recommending your wonderful business to everyone!

Caitlyn Bignall

Thank you guys. I would recommend this team to anyone needing a check up or some serious work!

Loraine Healey

I am such an anxious patient but Dr Grant made me feel so at ease and comfortable. I was able to get all my dental work done at once under sedation. I was very skeptical about sedation but honestly didn't feel a thing and don't remember a thing. Will definitely be back!!

Danica Quabba

I would like to thank everyone at the clinic for their caring and understanding service when treating my very anxious son during recent work. You did your best to allay his fears and it was a relief to see his quick recovery. Thanks again.

Helen Raymond

Amazing staff and great prices!!! They made my whole experience enjoyable. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
