Dr Michael Turner

Dr Michael Turner graduated from the University of Queensland in December 1986. After working in Cairns in Far North Queensland for two years, he opened his own practice in the suburb of Earlville in February 1988. Dr Turner believes in establishing a good rapport with his patients, which has provided a platform for open and clear communication. This allows him to determine the very best and most suitable treatment options for his clients.

Dr Turner was the first dentist in Cairns to integrate the CEREC restorative system into his busy dental practice, which he did in July 2002. He has been involved in the planning and restoration of dental implants since 1994, and continuously updates his knowledge and skills in this exciting field of dentistry.

In his spare time, Dr Turner loves to play his bass guitar and was a founding member of his bands, called The Pulp Stones and The MARIA’S.
