Smile Centre

Dr. San Chan, BDSc (Melb)


San migrated from Malaysia at 18 years of age and completed his VCE at Templestowe High School.  Following VCE he attend the Dental School at Melbourne University where he attained his degree of Bachelor of Dental Science.  After graduation he practiced in Lower Plenty, Warburton and Croydon finally settling down in the Frankston area.

On 31/3/1991 he started his practice in Langwarrin in what is now called Langwarrin Gateway shopping centre. In 1996 San established the practice at 123 Cranbourne Frankston Road Langwarrin & in 2012 completely rebuilt the facility to what it is today.

San lives in Camberwell with his wife Fiona who is also a Dentist & three children, two of whom live away from home studying at University. Jason, the eldest is at ANU studying a Law/Medical Science degree and Rachael is in Bendigo studying to be a Dentist. Nathan the youngest is studying Year 10.

San enjoys treating patient's of all ages but particularly likes to assist patient's who require dental cosmetic rehabilitation.

San is looking forward to streamlining the two practices as they embrace caring about patients with a whole health outlook. Dentistry has changed and it is no longer just about drilling and filling. We are the same practice but want our patients to feel good about their smile which is reflected in our new name.

San tries to play golf in his free time but fishing is his passion, especially fly fishing.
