I absolutely LOVE Dr Tuffley! I can't speak highly enough of him. I had surgery over a decade ago with him, and again recently. He is so kind, compassionate and knowledgeable. He is a real master at his art. He has such a beautiful bedside manner and has always made me feel very much at ease. He has never made any appointment feel rushed and has alway taken the time to answer my numerous questions with compassion and ease. His two beautiful receptionist Angela and Del have been so amazing to deal with too. They are a true asset to the wonderful Denticine team. Thank you guys!

The whole experience fromStart to finish was so smooth, easygoing and perfect. Never felt nervous and had a great time. Minimal swelling and pain afterwards was ready to get back in action after a few days!

Dr Mark Tuffley is probably the best doctor I have had! He removed my wisdom teeth in Feb this year. Everyone else was too afraid to take them out (including another specialist) because of the permanent risks (nerve damage). He told me that he could do it with minimal risks. He has a great sense of humour too with so many qualifications! He is the best doctor I’ve known which is very rare, lol (FYI, he is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon which means he is the top doctor treating oral problems.) I am recommending a friend of mine to him as she is looking for a good doctor to remove her wisdom teeth now.

Our son recently had surgery for the extraction of four wisdom teeth under the care of Dr Mark Tuffley. Dr Tuffley was extremely professional and kind allaying any fears the patient might have. His skill and expertise were evident in the end result of a good recovery and post operative follow-up. Dr Tuffley and the team at Denticine are friendly, kind and approachable with exceptional skill and internal processes that provide answers to all questions asked by the patient or family members. Dr Tuffley and his team are supportive and professional throughout the process and we thank Dr Tuffley and Kelly for their professionalism. The lead up to surgery and the follow up post surgery are exceptional. We would recommend Dr Tuffley and his team at Denticine.

Super friendly and his receptionist was equally as amazing!

Thanks Dr Mark and his professional and compassionate team---i will say that i am 110% delighted that my surgery needs were fulfilled --rather than expand on my own complete satisfaction ---i would encourage anyone-- both young and not so young --to arrange a referral to see-- Dr Mark Tuffley in person --- call his dedicated and professional team-- or request a referral--also thanks to the team --for the equally competent and compassionate anesthetist Dr Lee--- kind regards D.J.Smith----have a great day

Dr Tuffley is such a kind, compassionate man. His medical expertise is superb. I can see why he is such a guru in his field. Cannot speak highly enough of him. The best in his field. Full stop. I will see no one else.

I sought the services of Dr Tuffley for the removal of my 4 impacted wisdom teeth in March 2021. Dr Tuffley was extremely professional, with the surgery and recovery exceeding my expectations. Not only did I experience minimal swelling post surgery, I also did not need any pain medication post-operation. Thank you Dr Tuffley!

I had a back tooth removed by Dr Tuffley last Friday at North West hospital with Dr Jeff Singer as anaesthetist.A breeze - friendly modern hospital, Dr Tuffley's caring attention, similarly with Dr Singer, and apart from a little pain the first afternoon, pain free, no swelling or anxiety and plenty of laughs with Dr Tuffley.I was lucky my prosthodontist referred me thus.
05:18 21 Jan 21
Dr Tuffley is an amazing surgeon.I was extremely anxious having GA surgery to remove 4 wisdom teeth, but I need not have been. The surgery was quick, relatively painless apart from small sting from IV insertion, and once I was awake I never felt any pain until the evening, and even now 24hrs later the pain is still manageable without medication. I may be just lucky, but it's more likely that the Dr Tuffley really is a very skilled surgeon. A perfect 10 out of 10.Would highly recommend.

Truly a stress free experience. I had surgery two days ago with Dr Tuffley to remove three wisdom teeth and haven't yet had to use any pain killers, I am completely pain free. In addition no bleeding, oozing or face bruising. From the first consult to waking up in recovery, Dr Tuffley's kind and funny nature has shined throughout his personality and work. Would recommend to anyone who needs wisdom teeth removed. 16/01 kt

Dr Mark Tuffley extracted four wisdom teeth for my teenage daughter on 03/12/20. Our experience from initial consultation to surgery day was outstanding! Dr Tuffley and his team were caring, informative and compassionate throughout. My daughter was particularly apprehensive (her first GA) but was put at ease immediately. She felt safe and reassured by everyone involved. Post-operatively there has been no pain, minimal swelling and the healing process without complication. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Tuffley - a brilliant surgeon and remarkable human! Thankyou so very much.

Dr Mark Tuffley extracted five teeth for me on 11/06/2020 and it was such an amazing experience. He was kind, gentle and funny and did such a great job in easing my anxiety. His staff was also remarkable and was always ready to help me all throughout my healing process. I had very little swelling and pain, his cream worked wonders! I was able to transition to eating normally after a week. I would recommend him to everyone I know.
03:27 30 Sep 20
Dr Tuffley extracted two teeth for me on 25/9/20, He is kind, gentle and very professional. His staff are excellent and the communication and empathy from all in the prep, the surgery and follow up have been exemplary. I have very little swelling or pain and his cream works miracles in healing. I would recommend him first to anyone needing oral surgery. You will be well looked after
13:31 08 Sep 20
I defy anyone to be better at their job than this man. What a wonderful human being.
23:51 11 Aug 20
No words can express my overwhelming gratitude enough to Dr Mark Tuffley and his entire team.We met Dr Tuffley over 12 months ago while dealing with damage to the jaw from radiation treatment for cancer. His smile is contagious. And the love and passion for his work shines bright.Dr T's positive and genuine compassion for not only my husband as his patient by also the on going support for myself as his carer, is something we have not experienced anywhere in our 5 years in the hospital system.With Dr T's professional care and treatment we have been able to repair bone damage that through other doctors we were told was impossible to repair. He gave us hope. He gave us strength to keep positive on this long journey. But no empty promises. Just genuine compassion.Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
00:36 10 Aug 20
I've had several appointments with Dr Mark Tuffley and have been very happy with the face to face time and the phone support the surgery offers. I recently had two teem extracted by Mark. I'm amazed at how good I feel. There was no pain, no swelling and no bleeding. I couldn't be happier and have no problems recommending him for any dental work.
06:30 25 Jun 20
Basically less than 12 hours since Mark removed 3 wisdom teeth and I am already feeling great already. Very skilled and professional team and couldn't be happier with the results :)Would definitely recommend.
05:22 08 Jun 20
Had 3 wisdom teeth and a molar (previously failed root canal) removed after weeks of at times agonising pain. Was expecting to wake up from surgery in some discomfort due to how painful the tooth had been prior to the procedure. To my surpise, I woke up with no pain whatsoever, albeit with some expected jaw swelling and tenderness in biting for a few days after. Now just over one week post surgery and im back to a normal diet with minimal discomfort and nil further complications. Dr Tuffley is a brilliant surgeon with a calm and positive bedside manner, his reception staff are also brilliant. I'll have no hesitation recommending his services to others in the future.
00:18 08 Jun 20
Dr Tuffley is the first dentist I've seen other than my own mother and I can safely extend the same level of trust to Dr Tuffley. Relatively pain free for having all 4 wisdoms removed and definitely appreciate his light touch in operating. His reception and assisting staff are equally as lovely as Mark and if wisdom teeth grew back I'd be sure to go through them again.
07:54 14 May 20
Brilliant and superb surgeon. Thanks Mark for your true professionalism for removing a cyst and back molars that were creating a few problems in my mouth. Loved your laid back dry wit and honest attitude which is quite refreshing to say the least, and a big thank you to Sharon and Kelly and Dr Jeffrey Singer my Anaesthetist for all your help.
01:49 14 May 20
I got my wisdom teeth removed yesterday by Dr. Tuffley and I feel almost completely normal. The experience was painless from start to end. Dr. Tuffley is a true master surgeon and human being. Thank you so much Dr. Tuffley, you’re inspirational!

If you suffer from facial pain, have Temporomandibular Jaw Disorder (TMJ) or Postherpetic Neuralgia (PHN), or suspect you may have these disorders I can't recommend Dr Tuffley and his staff highly enough (especially if you have/suspect you have hEDS/HSD). I have suffered with pain for over 20 years and Dr Tuffley has done more for me than any other specialist I've seen in all those years. He's not only been treating me for TMJ but when I recently had facial/head pain so bad that it was debilitating me for over a week and he was able to diagnose, in one appointment, an underlying condition that has been the cause of my pain these 20 years by going through my entire history and symptoms. He was able to recommend the best treatment for it and I'll be starting that ASAP. Save yourself time and stress if you've had bad experiences with other doctors, go DIRECT to Dr Tuffley's office. He's the nicest man, he's compassionate with a wonderful bedside manner, he genuinely cares about you, and his staff including Kelly and Sharon are just the loveliest and most caring people I've come across and they go above and beyond for you. I can't sing their praises high enough. With their help I've got a chance at pulling my life out of this chronic pain nightmare and going back to work in future. They're the best and they have all my gratitude. <3
07:25 12 Feb 20
Wow I am absolutely amazed with Dr Tuffley and all his staff at his practice and especially at the Hospital.. I have had numerous previous bad experiences and this last surgery last week was just awesome.. I would be happy to go in anytime again.. Now that is saying something considering I have a big anxiety when it comes to dentistry.. Thank you Dr Mark Tuffley you are one and only. Oh and along with your colleages they are awesome too.. the best experience to date..

Dr. Mark Tuffley is the best doctor I have seen over my 25 year course of life. He's like crazy funny rock star uncle with great deal of experience. He extracted my teeth yesterday with general anesthesia. I had absolutely no pain at all. Moreover, I have no side effect of anesthesia even as outlined in the scholarly articles. I don't even need anyone to take care of me. I took my shower, do my usual work slept at 3 am and next day I woke up very energetically without any need for after care from someone, I don't even need sleep either. I felt like I am under rush of good chemicals with full of endorphins after taking my teeth out where I should actually be feeling dizzy groggy and with other scary side effects according to medical instruction and scholarly articles. The definition of surgery totally change in my mind with Dr. Tuffley. It is a life changing experience for me. I have living with pain not only having oral pain but a pain on my head which affect my mood during my communication with others and my studies and my career until I met Dr. Tuffley. Life is never been as great as before. I am going to go to him again and I recommend everyone who is afraid of dentistry to Dr. Tuffley. Trust me it feels more hurt to pluck a hair out then knocking a tooth out with Dr.Tuffley. He made me want to take care of my health. His surreal peanut butter is great, his surgical skills are greatest in his time. He is one of the legendary dentist of the Brisbane. I would never say that until my treatment is done.
01:47 06 Dec 19
Dr.Tuffley is incredible at what he does! He clearly takes great care when operating as my recovery has been wonderful. He is also assisted by the most lovely office staff and it has just been a wonderful experience. I am very happy to recommend Dr.Tuffley
21:48 05 Dec 19
Dr Tuffley is a kind, caring and genuine medical professional with lots of knowledge and experience. He approaches every matter with a positive outlook. His staff are pleasant and easy to deal with and they have a great response rate.
22:43 29 Nov 19
Very skilled at his craft and you can tell he enjoys his work. Zero complaints!
02:39 01 Nov 19
Dr Mark Tuffley is extremely professional and very up to date with the latest dental procedures. He also had a wonderful personal approach to me when I first met him, and not only showed concern in regards to my upcoming molar extraction surgery, but also had a genuine interest in me as an individual person, not just a number! He prescribed his magic CNM 7.4 ointment which I was to apply pre surgery to help cleanse the area, and also post surgery again to keep the extraction site as clean as possible to prevent any possible infection. He used fantastic distraction technique when I arrived in the theatre and he talked to me about sport and music as the anaesthetist was working on the other side of me. Next thing I knew was that I woke up in the recovery area. I was very comfortable and had very little pain over the next weeks, which was controlled by Panadol. The sutures dissolved at about day 14 after surgery and all was feeling & healing very well. About a month after surgery I noted some pain in my gum and could feel a sharp point under my tongue which made eating difficult. I assumed it was Sequestra as in the past I had suffered the same thing.....a small piece of leftover bone fragment making its way out of the area. Some people are just prone to it, and unfortunately I am one of them. Dr Tuffley and his team gave wonderful follow up advice and sent me another bottle of his magic potion. I found it very relieving on my gum and it also seemed to act as a drawing agent as the rest of the small bone fragments came to the surface very quickly and I now have fully recovered. I had my surgery on September 10 and I have been fully clear of everything since October 28. Dr Tuffley met me to conduct a follow up check of my gum on October 22 and assured me I would me fine for my overseas trip coming up in a couple of weeks, and I am! THAT MAGIC POTION IS GOING OS WITH ME JUST IN CASE I GET A MOUTH ULCER, AS ITS SOOTHING ABILITY IS FANTASTIC! I am a 1950’s baby and have had many terrible dental extraction experiences during my lifetime, but I have to say that Dr Tuffley and his whole team have given me a totally different opinion and I can only but praise him highly. I will recommend him to anyone who needs oral surgery. Thank you Mark! 👍

My son had four wisdom teeth removed by Dr Tuffley. I could not fault the service we received from Dr Tuffley and his wonderful team. They were incredibly helpful, patient, caring and understanding. My son recovered quickly with minimal pain and swelling. We received all of the relevant information to make his recovery as easy as possible. Would highly recommend Dr Tuffley.
01:08 24 Oct 19
I have been around for a while and this was probably the most professional and patient friendly medical/dental centre I have ever attended. The work was removal of a wisdom tooth - 3 out when I was 30 and now this one left over. The tooth was well exposed so possibly not the most difficult job ever but the preparation for the week preceding, work on the day and the followup was absolutely outstanding. This was not only Dr Tuffley but all of the many assistants. A stitch came loose - I sent in pictures of the area - "tele dentistry" in modern terms - and received a very rapid response that all was well. Dr Tuffley is research active and this is reflected in the up to date approach to dental care. Highly recommended.
03:43 21 Oct 19
After a week of consistent pain, almost unbearable with nothing making it go away i have to say a HUGE thank you to Dr Tuffley & his team they absolutely saved me!! Getting me into Surgery within 48 Hours, taking such kind and gentle care of me, answered every phone call along the way and of course followed up making sure i am okay post surgery. There are no words to say enough Thank you's for what you have done :) Forever Grateful!
06:05 13 Oct 19
I had a molar tooth that my dentist(s) would not attempt to extract. It had given me much pain as I later found out that it was infected in the bone. I was referred to Dr Tuffley. Dr Tuffley is a genius in his craft! When I woke up after the extraction I experienced little to no pain, swelling or bruising! He also developed his own special cream with a unique formula which is applied pre & post OP - it promotes healing and it really works!! Not only is Dr Tuffley an amazingly skilled surgeon but is also very personable - easy to talk to. I also want to compliment his staff - they are so polite and were always ready to answer my endless questions and concerns. I would highly recommend anybody employing the services of Dr Tuffley.

Mark Tuffley made my teenage daughter feel relaxed and at ease regarding the removal of her wisdom teeth!!! His admin team are also spot on, making the whole experience a breeze!!! The surgery went very well with the fabulous Mark Tuffley performing the surgery, his great anaesthetist Jeff Singer and the wonderful nurses ensuring my daughter was comfortable, relaxed and reassured!!! Her recovery has been AMAZING!!! She has only needed two nurofen and it's been 5 days since she had them out!!! Thanks to Mark Tuffley's surgical prowess!!! Thank you to Mark Tuffley and his fabulous team!!!!!!
08:43 22 Aug 19
Dr Tuffley is one of the friendliest people I've ever met. So many specialists are self-absorbed and treat patients as numbers, not this guy. Dr Tuffley is a credit to the profession and we could all be so lucky to be referred to him rather than Dr X who is late, rude and only looking to rack up numbers. I was given practical advice and was not coerced into paying for products that may not positively influence my condition. If I actually follow the plan I'll succeed and it was not deemed necessary for another appointment. Now I've written this it sounds paid for, but I've never reviewed a doctor before and it felt necessary on this occasion. It's nice to be pleasantly surprised in life.
04:10 28 Jul 19
Thanks Dr Tuffley for taking out my two wisdom teeth a couple of months ago :-) They healed perfectly and with no complications. I had no bleeding, only a tiny amount of swelling and very minimal pain. I would 100% recommend him, he is so gentle and lovely :)
21:58 27 Jul 19
I read all the reviews before booking in to have a impacted wisdom tooth removed under a general with Mark Tuffley. I was anxious I knew others that had had long and painful healing, side effects from the general that lasted days. I am delighted to say the research and experience matched I'm 36 hours out of surgery and feeling fine, virtually no swelling or pain and going back to work tomorrow. I felt his jovial nature was real and his care sincere, he genuinely wanted the best outcome and took longer to complete the operation than estimated but charged no more. The team he worked with at Canossa Private matched his simple practical no frills professionalism most happy to give five stars as it represents a win win all round.
06:30 10 Jun 19
Absolutely no pain getting wisdom teeth removed. Recovery was quick and easy. Best tooth specialist around.
10:48 29 May 19
Dr Mark Tuffley is a fantastic dental surgeon. I had all four of my impacted wisdom teeth removed, plus an extra dead/brittle tooth removed that was next to a wisdom tooth (total of five teeth removed in the one operation).This was all done under general anaesthesia. I was initially anxious about the whole operation, especially general anaesthesia. However, Dr Tuffley’s friendliness, compassion and sympathy put my mind at ease. He is a surgeon who cares and will check up on you after the operation is finished to make sure you’re doing well and don’t have any unanswered queries. His staff are also knowledgeable and will answer any queries post-operation (as well as performing follow-up phone calls to ensure there are no issues or concerns). As for his work to my teeth, fantastic. I didn’t have any bruising or pain, and didn’t feel the need to take any strong painkillers. I only had some minor swelling in the jaw (which is expected after such an operation) as well as general anaesthesia grogginess. I was back to eating solid foods after about a week and a half and there were no complications. Thank you Dr Mark Tuffley, a highly recommendable surgeon to anyone needing dental surgery.

Dr Tuffley and his team are fantastic. They went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and safe from pre to post-op. My wisdom tooth was removed with little to no pain experienced at all. I didnt even require the prescribed pain medication. Everyone was super friendly and helpful.
05:28 03 May 19
Had two wisdom teeth out yesterday, no pain at all and very minimal swelling. Dr Tuffley is knowledgeBle nice and funny, very much recommend his services
02:31 02 May 19
Our 8 year old son had a terrible accident on his bike and managed to do enough damage to need surgery. Through our dentist we found Dr Tuffley and he went out of his way to ensure our son could have the surgery he needed to ensure he had the best possible chance of keeping his tooth. There are few Dr's who go above and beyond but that day Dr Tuffley and his whole team were beyond amazing to our family. He was so kind and caring and our son had one dose of nurofen after surgery and that was it, his pain was minimal and he recovered so well. Can't thank him enough!

After a few bad experiences with dentists in the UK I have bad anxiety when attending dentists ever since, i have been putting off having them out for years. This morning Dr Mark Tuffley removed all 4 of my wisdom teeth and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. From the moment I met him during the consult to him chatting with me post surgery today, I have been so impressed with his knowledge, personality and his ability to completely alleviate any anxiety I had. If you are nervous of dentists/surgery I really can’t recommend Dr Mark enough, his friendly team will make you feel at ease from first contact. Thank you Dr Mark Tuffley! The best dentist I have ever met!

Dr Mark Tuffley was very kind and gentle, knowledgeable and explained everything as he was doing it . As someone who is scared of going to the Dentist, I definitely recommend Dr Mark Tuffley. He and his staff were very compassionate and caring.
09:38 05 Feb 19
Dr Tuffley removed 3 of my remaining wisdom teeth and can quite positively say it was the best experience i've had dentist related! Post op i had max 3/10 on the pain scale and considering i had very impacted wisdom teeth, he did a very fine and precise finish! Such a friendly surgeon too and always made you feel comfortable! I highly recommend him for any dental needs he offers.
11:19 29 Jan 19
My entire experience with Dr Tuffley, the Denticine staff and this practice was amazing.I was referred to the practice due to two problematic wisdom teeth which were causing me a lot of immediate pain.In the lead up to my appointment, the Denticine staff were incredibly supportive and helpful over the phone, helping to squeeze me in during a busy period as well as answering all of my questions.I found Dr Tuffley to be an esteemed dentist with a genuinely friendly and humorous touch. He was a pleasure for me to come into contact with during an uncomfortable period.I ended up having the two wisdom teeth removed by Dr Tuffley under a general anaesthetic. I was in good hands the whole day at Canossa Hospital.Throughout my post-surgery recovery period, Dr Tuffley and the Denticine staff have seen to it that I have been genuinely cared for.Couldn't speak well enough about my experience.
01:56 28 Nov 18
Amazing! Little to no paid following my surgery..would 100% recommend Dr Mark Tuffley
07:55 05 Nov 18
Absolutely amazing service! Dr Tuffley removed all 4 of my wisdom teeth under general anaesthetic and it was the most stress free and painless experience. My post op recovery was quick and I had very little pain and swelling. Could not recommend Dr Tuffley higher!!
01:52 03 Oct 18
It was a while back but I had 4 wisdom teeth + 1 extra tooth removed all at once. I had a nerve going between the root of one or more teeth and if anything went wrong, one side of my face would have been paralized. When I went to Dr Tuffley I was very nervous but he told me it's what he specializes in and won't be a problem which really calmed me down. After the operation I didn't take any pain killers and my face wasn't half as swollen as my sisters when she had it done with less teeth removed! Dr Tuffley is also extremly passionate. I asked a question and he was loving evey bit of telling me about it. Dr Tuffley is the one to go to!
13:49 25 Jun 18
It has taken me a few years to get around it, but i wanted to pass on to others my experience with Dr Tuffley and his staff ... Apart from being extremely professional, i managed to feel completely relaxed in his company and felt completely confident, albeit very anxious (my first time under a general anaesthetic) that i was in good hands.. Felt no pain after surgery and healing was fast.. I am very grateful to have met the wonderful Dr Tuffley and his lovely staff.. you are in good hands ! :)
00:57 08 Jun 18
I had my wisdom teeth out yesterday with my dad and Dr Tuffley made it such a good experience! He was so positive and fun through the whole experience and 25 hours later I have not experienced any pain! Thank you so much! 💛

Dr Mark Tuffley performed complex dental surgery on me back in September 2017. I found him and his team to be very professional but what impressed me the most was his manner and personality. Before I made an appointment with Mark I asked around for a referral. All the Dentists I spoke to said he was the best. Turns out they were right. Dr Mark is an excellent surgeon and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.Thanks again Mark.Dr Rob

If I could give Dr Tuffley 10 stars I would! Such a fantastic experience from start to finish. I experienced no pain at all! after having 4 wisdom teeth removed. Thank you Dr Tuffley and team for your kindness and outstanding care.
