Dr Felix Tan

Dr Felix Tan has been practising dentistry since 1985. He is the current owner of Hobart Place Dental, which was established by Dr Colin Watson in 1965. The dental clinic is still situated in Canberra’s iconic AMP Building (1 Hobart Place, Canberra City). Dr Felix has been in Canberra since 1987.

As a highly experienced dentist in Canberra, Dr Felix is passionate about ensuring that patients receive top dental care and value for money. Over the past few years, Dr Felix has developed an interest in better understanding the diseases that affect people’s dental health as they age.

Away from work, Dr Felix enjoys gardening, travel, architectural design, and music festivals. He takes great pride in growing his own organic vegetables and repurposing unwanted items into garden ornaments and structures. You could say that Dr Felix is into sustainability and recycling.
