Our Dentist


Dr Ervan Seeto

Ervan is the owner and principal dentist of Tribeca Dental in East Melbourne which he established in 2007.

He graduated from the University of Queensland in 1989. Following graduation Ervan moved from Brisbane to work in private practices in Lismore and Nimbin, northern New South Wales. In 1993, he ventured to the United Kingdom to further his professional development and interest in general and cosmetic dentistry working in Oxford and Covent Garden in the heart of London’s West End before returning to Australia in 2006.

From the start he was determined to create a practice which provides the kind of dentistry patients would appreciate, and return to time and time again. In turn they would eagerly refer their friends and family. He believes that all patients should receive the service and standard of dentistry that he would like and expect to receive. 

Ervan’s passion is for excellence in dentistry, customer service and building long-term relationships with his patients.

“I love providing excellence in dental care alongside my friendly and fantastic support team. My patients come to me knowing I have their best interests at heart. It's all about building a lasting relationship. “

He is a member of the Australian Dental Association and the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Dental Interests

Having grown up with a fear of dentists from early childhood visits in Papua New Guinea, Ervan is committed to making his patients feel at ease with a total focus on their comfort.  He is able to relate to his patients having had personal experience of many of the dental procedures that he offers.

He has a holistic approach to dental care and practices Biomimetic Dentistry, a 21st century approach to repairing damaged teeth. It focuses on minimally invasive techniques which preserve tooth structure and restore function to broken or decayed teeth in ways that mimic natural teeth. 

His areas of expertise are general and restorative dentistry, endodontics (root canal treatment), and cosmetic enhancements (from ceramic restorations, veneers, crowns, inlays and onlays through to bridges, implants and dentures).

Technology is constantly changing and Ervan likes to embrace new advances allowing him to offer the best that modern dentistry can provide.

Outside of dentistry he loves to cook and share meals with family and friends and keeps fit by swimming and cycling. He has a passion for travel and photography and enjoys hiking, reading, films and attending music gigs and live theatre around town.
