About our Practice

Dr Cook established his dental practice in Highland Park in 1994.  When he added the Robina practice in 2004, the practice became known as DC Dental. DC Dental is a general dental practice that delivers a complete range of dental services to suit the needs of all ages. Where necessary, a referral can be arranged to specialists with whom the DC Dental dentists work closely.

Both the practices have been awarded Dental Practice Accreditation from an independent accreditor. DC Dental is proud to be among the first dental practices in Australia to seek and attain voluntary accreditation. Accreditation means that an independent federal government recognised body has assessed our systems and procedures and found they satisfy or exceed the Australian Standards and Guidelines. This includes systems for infection control, workplace health and safety, patient record confidentiality and patient safety.

The dentists and support team at DC Dental are committed to providing the best possible treatment for all patients. Our dentists regularly attend continuing education courses to ensure that they stay up to date with the latest research and procedures. The team will endeavour to make your time with us as pleasant as possible and provide the dental care which is right for you.

Dr Marlene Yu


Marlene joined the friendly team at DC Dental in mid-2016. She graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Dental Science (Honours). During her studies she also spent time volunteering in Cambodia, where she provided dental care and treatment to the local children.

Through this experience and since graduating, Marlene has come to appreciate all aspects of dentistry, developing special interests in the areas of cosmetic dentistry and treating anxious patients.

Marlene finds her role as a General Dentist rewarding and enjoys being able to provide high quality care and affordable treatment to her patients.

She endeavours to provide excellent dental care; therefore, she regularly attends professional development courses to remain up to date with the latest techniques and technology of modern general dental practice.

Outside of dentistry, Marlene has a love for food and enjoys visits to the gym.
