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.

Dr. Nicola Barnbrock


Dr Nicola Barnbrock first came to Australia as a backpacker after completing her first degree in Biomedical Sciences. Loving her trip so much she went back to her hometown of Liverpool to study to become a Dentist with the intention of gaining permanent residency in Australia. Nicola decided on Dentistry as she has a passion for people and hearing their stories. Her favourite aspects include difficult extractions and putting nervous patients at ease! In 2012 Nicola called Mandurah her home. Before Murray Dental Care, Nicola had worked in the Mandurah area for around 8 years. She loved her time in Mandurah and knew that this was the kind of area she wanted to be in. After Mandurah Nicola decided to spend some time in the Byford community. She found the country style of patients and dentistry to be something that she thoroughly enjoyed. As Nicola has joined us at Murray Dental Care, we have seen first hand how well she gets along with our wonderful, down to earth community. In her spare time Nicola enjoys spending time with her family and is an avid Liverpool football team fan! She has even gone so far as to travel to see some of the past champions league finals!
