Who We Are

Local knowledge with benefits of best practice

QDS was established in 2012 as a one-stop Dental Equipment Servicer and Repairer.  In 2014 QDS was successful in winning the Queensland Health contract to service and maintain all Queensland Health Oral Health equipment in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, West Moreton, Darling Downs and Western Queensland.  Since then, QDS has grown to a team of 9 servicing Queensland Health dental facilities, Queensland universtiy facilities and private dentists across South East Queensland, Darling Downs, Gold Coast and Northern New South Wales.  

QDS are the preferred installers for all A-dec equipment at Queensland Health facilities as well as providing installation services for A-dec for the Australian Defence Force and various Queensland universities.  

QDS has recently become the Carestream Dental technical partner responsible for the service and maintenance of all Carestream extra-oral x-ray imaging equipment in Queensland and Northern New South Wales.  

Our People

Our team of qualified technicians has over 100 years combined experience with oral health equipment and facilities in Australia.  This knowledge is invaluable in getting the work done efficiently and to demanding standards.

At the same time, the adoption of our efficient approach allows paper work to be streamlined and barriers to efficient service delivery eliminated.  Our staff, for example, work out-of-hours where necessary as part of the service and value culture of QDS.

Our team has extensive knowledge and experience in a wide range of dental equipment used in Queensland and Northern NSW dental facilities and have undertaken training both in Australia and directly with manufacturers overseas. 

For our customers this experience means:
