Our Swansea dentists are qualified in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics and more.
Dr. Scott Speirs
Dr Scott Speirs graduated from the University of Melbourne with his Bachelor of Dental Science. He is the owner of Swansea Dental Practice. Dr Speirs grew up in Victoria, but has been part of the local community since 1997. Dr Speirs has a particular interest in orthodontics, in which he has extensive additional training. In addition, he has advanced skills in endodontics (root canal treatment), paediatric dentistry and oral surgery.
Dr Speirs has always been interested in healthcare and in caring for others, but particularly likes the mechanics and intricate designs required to restore and create healthy smiles. Outside of dentistry, his interests include sports and music. He is a father of three and enjoys talking to other patients with children.
The local community is important to Dr Speirs, and his dental practice dedicates a day every six months or so towards treating disadvantaged people living locally. The practice also supports World Vision and sponsors a child.

Dr Jeganathan derives a great deal of pleasure from seeing patients smile once more, and believes good health can increase a person’s overall happiness. Dr Jeganathan’s interests include fitness and fishing, and he has two children.
Dr. Margaret Kingston
Dr Margaret Kingston graduated from the University of Sydney with her Bachelor of Dentistry. She grew up in Canberra but has lived locally since graduating in 2007.
Dr Kingston’s interests include dental extractions and restorative and preventative dental care. As a parent, she particularly enjoys working with children and quickly helps them to feel comfortable during their visits. Dr Kingston is an approachable and friendly person who appreciates that receiving dental care can be stressful for some people. She finds it very fulfilling working with people who experience anxiety when seeing a dentist, taking great care to help them feel at ease. Dr Kingston is very gentle and caring, especially when seeing patients in pain or discomfort.
Like everyone at our practice, Dr Kingston is passionate about preventative dentistry, especially given the positive impact it can have on general health. She loves working with patients, helping them to more fully understand their dental health and how best to maintain it with the appropriate preventative dentistry routine combined with a healthy diet. As a dedicated dental professional, Dr Kingston treats every person she treats with the greatest respect, providing compassionate and supportive dental care, individually tailored to each patient.
When not practising dentistry, Dr Kingston loves to relax by playing with her children and she enjoys sports and snow sports, or simply relaxing on the beach.
