Chris offers all patients the warmest of welcomes. It does not matter if you are new to seeing Chris or one of his long-standing patients from his years at Pinjarra Dental; you know you will always receive the best care possible.

Where has Chris Been?

Dr Chris Bucktin started working at Pinjarra Dental in October 1996. He then went on to own the practice in 2000. He ran Pinjarra Dental until he sold it to a group of Dentists known as Dental Corp to handle the admin so he could concentrate on being a dentist.  Shortly after Dental Corp decided to sell to Bupa. Chris worked for Bupa for a few years but after a contractual difference of opinion, Chris had to leave Pinjarra Dental in March 2021.

Chris had to abide by an 18-month contractual restraint period; where he was not permitted to work within the area. As Chris spent a good portion of his childhood in Geraldton he decided to head back there for work.

Founding of Murray Dental

After a period of 2 years Chris has opened Murray Dental. He is very excited to have a business of his own again without corporate interference. Murray Dental is now the only dental practice in Pinjarra owned and operated by a dentist.

Chris has always loved the people and the area of Pinjarra as well as the wider Murray/Waroona communities. He is very happy to be back living and working in the area.
