Seamlessly uniting the art and science of dentistry and facial aesthetics
"It's about enhancing natural beauty and creating a harmonious balance to the facial proportions, either in conjunction with, or independent of, dental work", explains Dr Dunn.
Aesthetic facial enhancements shouldn't be, and don't need to be, obvious or even noticeable. The results I’m committed to achieving for my patients are always subtle, natural and, most importantly, to promote and maintain overall skin health. I don’t believe in using anti-wrinkle injections to completely freeze the facial muscles, or using HA dermal filler to create shapeless, over-inflated lips. That’s not ever something I’ll offer or agree to perform on any patient.
I want my patients to look and feel fresh and youthful with a primary focus on overall skin health, not have people asking where they’ve had their lip filler done or commenting on the fact that they can’t make facial expressions" - Dr Dunn.

Why dentists are among the most qualified medical practitioners to perform facial aesthetic procedures
Dental surgeons are among the most qualified medical practitioners to offer complete facial + dental enhancement: Dento-Facial Aesthetics. Why? Because, contrary to common misconception, a Dentist’s training extends far beyond just the inside the mouth.
A dentist’s immense training covers the extensive study of the ENTIRE face, including underlying bone structures, vascularisation (veins and arteries) and soft tissues. As a result of their rigorous university training, dentists graduate with a comprehensive, in-depth understanding of facial structures and anatomy.
Truth Be Told…
As with anything, it’s inevitable that there will be those who are sceptical of facial aesthetic procedures and skin rejuvenation treatments despite the literal avalanche of scientific data suggesting otherwise. In the specific case of “facial enhancement procedures”, scepticism, apprehension and doubt aren’t altogether surprising. With a queue of quasi-celebrities and influx of influential Insta-stars sporting over-inflated lips and frozen faces, it’s no wonder that these products and procedures get a bad rap, are misjudged and attract such negative attention.
Truth be told, these products in and of themselves are not responsible for the unnatural, freakish faces that appear on social media and reality TV: It’s HOW these products are used, by WHOM they’re used and the extreme VOLUMES injected that create frozen, fake and frightening features.
For too long, administration of these schedule 4 prescription-only products and the provision of procedures have been considered and perceived as purely “cosmetic”. Anti-wrinkle injections were likened to having an eyebrow wax, and dermal fillers were compared to having a blow-dry at the hair salon.
Here’s the truth...
Each and every one of these Facial Aesthetic and Skin Rejuvenation treatments (including anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers) are MEDICAL procedures. And, inherent to ANY medical procedure that any of us undertake, you’re mad if don’t seek out the practitioner with the appropriate medical knowledge and training to administer these treatments.
Based on the corresponding body of scientific proof confirming the health benefits, Dr Dunn personally and specifically chooses the all medical-grade products and treatments offered at Luke Dunn Dental based on the corresponding bodies of scientific proof confirming health benefits to facial tissues and underlying structures.
