Dr Sahil Soni graduated from the University of Otago, New Zealand in 2009 and has been working in private dental practice since then. He enjoys all aspects of dentistry with a special interest in cosmetic dentistry and wisdom teeth removal. “I am very passionate about my work and am always looking to learn new techniques to keep up with the improvements in dentistry. Dentistry has changed significantly over the years, not just in the materials used, but also in techniques and treatment philosophy, and I feel it is important to keep up with the times. I enjoy developing a plan with my patients for their dental management, be it short, medium or long term. I understand that every patient´s needs and wants are unique. My philosophy in managing the dental needs of my patients is to treat every patient as I would like to be treated” Outside of work Dr Soni enjoys playing Squash.
I was born and bred in Canberra attending Rivett, Cook and Hughes Primary Schools before attending Woden Valley High School and Narrabundah College before graduating from University of Sydney in 1994 with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery.After practicing in the town of Cowra, located in central west NSW, as the co-principal dentist for 14 years, I have moved back to Canberra.I am a very conservative dentist who dedicates time to informing and educating the public. I pride myself on good communication skills as they are fundamental in dentistry. I believe dentistry is all about providing the best possible long term result for each individual in a caring manner.

If a baby tooth that comes out due to trauma, it is not recommended to replant the tooth back as it may cause damage to the developing permanent tooth underneath.
If a permanent/adult tooth comes out due to trauma, the tooth should be replanted back as soon as possible. If the tooth is clean, it can be replanted back immediately. If the tooth is dirty, the tooth should be rinsed in milk and replanted. If it is not possible to replant the tooth, store the tooth in milk or some contact lens solution to prevent dehydration of the tooth. Water is NOT recommended as a storage medium.
Dental treatment should be seeked urgently to replant the tooth and to assess any damage to the neighbouring teeth and gums.
Unfortunately, dental services for adults are not covered by Medicare Australia so we are unable to bulk bill.
Currently we do not offer payment plans. However, it may be possible to spread your treatment over several appointments
Yes, we do. Kids can be brought in to see the dentist from 2 years of age. We feel it is important to educate them about their oral health from an early age. Children will often pick up their parents' fear of the dentist. In reality, dentistry has changed considerably over the years and is not as painful as it once was. If you are bringing your child to the dentist, it is recommended not to assign a negative connotation in 'going to the dentist' so that they are not fearful of any dental treatment.
Our opening hours are
Monday - Friday : 9 AM - 7 PM
Saturday : 9 AM - 4 PM
Sunday : By appointment only between 10 AM - 2 PM
Public Holidays : Closed
For adults, a toothpaste containing fluoride and a soft bristled toothbrush are recommended. Toothpastes not containing fluoride are not recommended as they offer no protection from tooth decay.
For individuals with a high risk of developing cavities or with sensitive teeth, a toothpaste with a high concentration of Fluoride may be required.
An electrictooth brush is recommended for brushing, preferably one with a 2-minute timer which also provides feedback if you are brushing too hard, as this can damage the gums. If using a manual tooth brush, it is recommended to always use a soft bristled brush to prevent damage to the gums.
At Capital Dental, after considerable research, we have chosen the most reliable and the finest materials, in order to provide you with a beautiful restoration.
There are 4 types of fillings-
We currently offer 'white'- Composite Resin, Porcelain and Gold fillings and do not use Amalgam at our practice. Apart from being unappealing to the eyes, Amalgam is known to contain small amounts of mercury which can pose health risks and often causes teeth to crack as it expands over time. For these reasons, we have chosen not to provide amalgam fillings to our patients.
