Our Family Dental Practice
We are an established community practice and have recently undergone a modern renovation. We are excited to be working in these new surroundings and love seeing the positive impact it has on our patients. We couple this relaxing environment with the latest dental equipment and techniques to ensure that your visit to Scott Makiol Biodentistry delivers the care and service you deserve. Scott, Nicole, their eldest child James and their daughter Eloise all work at the practice alongside an extraordinary team.
Our Supportive Team
Scott Makiol, the principal dentist, leads our supportive and friendly team. Scott has been practising dentistry since 1988, most of this time at Scott Makiol Biodentistry in Moorooka, QLD. Scott values each patient as an individual and takes a holistic and scientific approach to provide the most desirable outcomes for his patients.
At Scott Makiol Biodentistry, we are a dedicated, friendly team committed to providing the best levels of care and service to all of our patients. Scott is assisted by his wife Nicole in the practice and a close-knit team of professionals who ensure that you are comfortable and your time at our dental practice is pleasurable. The team is committed to answering any questions you have, taking the time to explain everything in detail to you.
Our Approach to Dental Health
Biodentistry recognises that the mouth, lips, teeth, gums, oral soft tissues and tongue are not separate entities but an intricate part of the whole body and its natural and essential processes.
Biodentistry looks at the possible reasons behind any oral health problems and works together with you to restore and maintain optimum oral health.
Dr Scott Makiol, BDsc
I graduated in 1988 from the University of QLD traditionally trained in conventional modern scientific dentistry. However, I believe there are many more holistic treatments available to us, which can complement modern dentistry. Therefore, I regularly attend dental education courses throughout each year to keep abreast of the latest advancements in dentistry.
Outside of the practice, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing golf and surfing. I surf for fitness and find being in the ocean a form of meditation that brings calmness to my mind and spirit.
I met Scott in 1990, we married in 1994, and I have been running all aspects of the practice since 1991. This allows Scott to focus entirely on the oral health of our patients. I passionately believe in the education of good oral hygiene practices and I love chatting with our patients about this. I do this with the help of my oral hygiene specialist, Draco.
Outside of the practice, I hike with friends, hit the gym, practise yoga, am learning to meditate and love to paint when time allows. I also enjoy cooking nutritious, whole foods for family and friends.
Scott and I have two gorgeous children, and we could not successfully run our practice without the support of our lovely team.
Previously employed in medical administration, I have been with Scott Makiol Biodentistry since 2001. Having worked at Scott Makiol Biodentistry for 20 years I have formed friendships with many of our beautiful patients and enjoy catching up with them regularly.
Outside of work, I enjoy travelling and spending time with my family and friends, living life to the fullest.
I'm Scott and Nicole's only daughter, and I'm currently studying for a dual Bachelor Degree in Nursing and Midwifery. I am also gaining qualifications in hypnobirthing and plan on completing several doula courses related to midwifery.
I have been part of the practice my whole life and very much enjoy working alongside my family and the rest of our team. Quite a few of our patients have watched me grow, and I love catching up with them regularly.
Outside of study and work, I enjoy practising yoga, photography, going to the beach, using watercolours and spending time with my friends and family.
Treatment Room Coordinator
I moved from the UK in 2003 with my husband and three children and decided to have a career change. I have now been dental assisting for 17 years and absolutely love it. I recently joined Scott Makiol Biodentistry and am really enjoying working with such a great team.
Outside of the practice I enjoy going to Pilates, traveling, and spending time with my family and grandchildren.
Treatment Room Coordinator
I was born in Kazakhstan and moved to Germany when I was ten years old. I came to Brisbane six years ago and love living in such a family-friendly city.
After having my daughter I wanted a career change. I completed my Cert 3 in Dental Assisting and never looked back. I find it very interesting and fulfilling. Away from work I enjoy running, painting, spending time with my family, and I have qualifications in Interior Design.
James , BA, BEd
As Scott and Nicole’s eldest child, I have been part of the practice my whole life. I love catching up with our patients—those who have known me my whole life and those I am meeting for the first time. I also enjoy working with my family and colleagues.
I have qualifications in education, linguistics and Japanese and am now studying a dual Bachelor of Architecture and Electrical Engineering majoring in Aerospace.
Outside of work, I enjoy travelling, playing video games and spending time with my family and friends.
Oral Hygiene Instruction Specialist
I have been part of Dr Scott’s team since 2017, taking over from my Uncle Horace. I love showing everyone how to maintain good oral hygiene practices so they can have a healthy, beautiful smile all the time, even at home!
When I’m not working, I love to chill out with my team mates listening to my favourite music.
