The CP Dental Story

CP Dental Brisbane and Emerald

Where we started:

Our story begins nearly 50 years ago, not with 60 people but with one man who started a then small business. In 1969 the first Coopers Plains practice opened as a one chair surgery in Boundary Road,  in 1974 the practice was relocated to a two-chair practice in the current location of CP Dental Coopers Plains.

Where we are today:

We are one of the largest privately owned dental groups in Queensland we currently employ over 60 people and have a total of 19 dental chairs across our three practices in Brisbane and Emerald.

Coopers Plains,  Emerald and Mater Hill practices all uphold the philosophies of our Directors and team.  We are delighted to now offer the CP Dental standard of care and service to more and more patients across south east and central Queensland.

Our team now comprises of 4 Directors, Dentists, Oral Health Therapists, Dental Hygienists and a large number of ancillary staff all of whom are integral to delivering the CP Dental mission.

Coopers Plains

Since it’s humble beginnings in 1974 our Coopers Plains practice has undergone two major renovations and is now one of the largest practices in Qld.  We are delighted to be providing dental care to the children and grandchildren of our very first patients.     Coopers Plains is the central hub and the foundation practice for our group.


The demand for oral health services in Central Queensland proved to be so great that in 2009 we opened our first privately owned Emerald practice, Mayfair Ridge Dental Surgery now renamed as CP Dental Emerald.

In December 2013 the Emerald practice underwent a relocation and expansion, doubling in size from a 3-chair to 6-chair facility

Mater Hill

More recently, on the 13th of November 2017 a new location CP Dental Mater Hill opened its doors in South Brisbane.  Located on the ground floor of Ronald McDonald House CP Dental Mater Hill is close to the thriving Mater Hospital complex.  This marks the 3rd permanent location CP Dental to help service the community’s dental needs by providing affordable dental care in a modern environment.


Across our 3 locations our team work tirelessly to provide the very best patient care and service, our strength comes from the values that have been the foundation of CP Dental since those early days in 1974.


Rural Service

In 2004, CP Dental began offering services to rural areas in an arrangement with Queensland Health. This was an extremely significant step for the practice and something that shaped the growth and expansion of CP Dental. We commenced a periodic service to Barcaldine in Central West Queensland and later expanded to include Longreach as well.

We were delighted to provide dental care to locations that had experienced limited access to oral health service for a long time and continue to service those areas from our Emerald practice.
