Casuarina Dental - Family and Holistic Care

Dr Demetrio Pina Neto, BDS


Dr Demetrio is a compassionate practitioner graduated from the Sao Paulo City University (Brazil) in 2002. Since then, he has completed post graduate training in Periodontics, Oral Surgery, Dental Implants and Restorative Dentistry.

With experience working in clinical settings throughout Australia and Brazil, treating patients from a variety of cultural backgrounds, ages and needs, Dr Demetrio always keeps in mind the impact of dental conditions on the whole body. He is very focussed in helping his patients to improve their general health and wellbeing through modern technique and technology. His mission is to improve the general health and wellbeing of his patients, not just their dental health.


 “I always wanted to be involved in a profession where I am helping people. I have found a particular passion in the challenges of diagnosis and problem solving in dentistry. I love what I do and I love being around professionals who are excited and passionate about their work.” 


He migrated to Australia in 2011 with his family and settled in Melbourne before relocating to South East Queensland in 2015, seeking for a more balanced work-family lifestyle in a beautiful environment. 

His interests outside dentistry are music, reading, swimming, football, archery, Brazilian jiu-jitsu and chess. He also enjoys spending time with his family at the beach, doing outdoor activities and travelling. Dr Demetrio also speaks Portuguese and is always trying to learn more Spanish and Greek.
