A focus on people, not just teeth.


Wellbeing is the culmination of many individual parts and actions, coming together to create health on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. 

Dr Tom has crafted an approach to dentistry that strives to achieve more than just dental health, to truly pursue the wellbeing of each individual.

It is his absolute pleasure to walk with you on your journey to health.




“My daily goal and desire in life is to see hope restored”


Graduating from Griffith University, Gold Coast, Dr Tom Wauchope has been privileged to learn and work in one of Australia’s leading holistic dental clinics for over 8 years. Following a Spirit-led move to the Sunshine coast in 2018 he is excited to continue the journey of health with old and new clients. Joining the outstanding team at Smile By Design, Maroochydore, Dr Tom is excited to offer exceptional holistic dental care to complement the expanding range of aesthetic and skincare treatments available at the practice.

A life marked by continually evolving encounters with others has led to a deep compassion and understanding for people from diverse backgrounds and for those with complex special needs. This has driven him to search out the best treatments and approaches to care for each individual.

Alongside excellence in general dentistry, Dr Tom has studied nutritional medicine, homeotoxicology, oral myofunctional therapy and buteyko breathing retraining, holistic kids dentistry, functional orthodontics, interdisciplinary headache & TMJ treatments, complex aesthetic and reconstructive dentistry, sleep medicine and more.

His desire is to work with individuals and families to achieve the best possible health outcomes, both now and into the future; dentistry that is about people, not just teeth.

Dr Tom is a current member and has completed training with:

International Association of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT)

Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM)



Dr Tom is on sabbatical at present.

He has limited availability for online consultations.
