The people of Adelaide have an exciting new treatment option available for missing or badly damaged teeth. Four experienced dentists have established a Next Smile Australia Super Clinic in the city to provide a new smile in as little as one day. Welcome to Next Smile Australia Adelaide.
Located on both sides of the Torrens River, Adelaide is acclaimed for its natural attractions, wine and festivals. As South Australia’s capital and most populous city with 1.4 million residents, it makes sense that Adelaide is the place to go if you need full-mouth dental restoration in the state. And for a form of full mouth restoration with a proven track record of success, one of the best options available is All-on-4® in Adelaide.
Missing teeth are a common problem Australia-wide, regardless of state or territory. Adults in Australia have a mean average of 4.5 missing teeth. Dental issues and the likelihood of losing teeth increase with age, with 61% of people 75 and over having moderate to severe periodontitis.
Dental implants are one of the most effective methods for treating missing teeth. Dental implant treatment involves a series of titanium screws inserted into the jawbone with an artificial tooth or “crown” attached to the top of each one. Dental implants provide you with a new smile, but the process can be a long and drawn-out one, sometimes requiring other uncomfortable procedures like dental bone grafting if the jawbone lacks sufficient mass.
The All-on-4® treatment, pioneered by Dr Paulo Malo in 1998, takes a new approach to dental implants. It involves supporting an entire bridge or “arch” of new teeth on just four implants – two at the front and two at the back on one jawbone – and can provide you with a new smile in as little as 24 hours.
The All-on-4® dental bridge attached to the four implants will look and function like natural teeth. They allow you to eat the way you used to and, unlike most dentures, don’t need to be removed when you clean them or go to sleep. They also shorten recovery time and don’t require other measures, such as bone grafting. Perhaps best of all, they protect your dental health and long-term health from the consequences of untreated missing teeth. These negative effects can include weakened jawbone, shifting of surrounding teeth and potential complications elsewhere in the body, such as heart problems, in the future.
One of the best steps you can take for your appearance, your self-confidence and your current and future health is to invest in All-on-4® in Adelaide.

Our All-on-4® Dental Surgeons
Our clinic owners and lead All-on-4® surgeons bring in-depth knowledge, industry-leading experience and a passion for their work to your All-on-4® Adelaide treatment. As individuals, they’re high achievers with many accolades and accomplishments to their name. Together, their common vision is meaningfully impacting your life for the better with All-on-4®.
Dr Ian Bills
Dr Ian Bills began his practice of general dentistry in 1977 upon graduating from the University of Adelaide. His commitment to continual learning and growth saw him awarded Fellowship to the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons in 1980. In 1985, he grew increasingly interested in dental implants and undertook training in the Branemark System, the first dental implant system to be approved as a method of tooth replacement.
Dr Bills has lectured and presented at events held by Nobel Biocare (Dr Malo’s own research partner) and has trained in All-on-4® treatment at the All-on-4® centre in Portugal. He has more than 45 years of experience in the dental industry and has been placing All-on-4® implants since 2003, bringing a wealth of experience to your All-on-4® Adelaide treatment.
Dr Evan Jones
Dr Evan Jones began his career in both city and rural clinics after graduating from the University of Adelaide with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery. He regularly performed treatments like dental implants, wisdom tooth surgery and challenging extractions before receiving training in All-on-4® treatment. He has quickly become one of All-on-4® in Adelaide’s most prominent specialists and is also a member of the Australian Dental Association, the Australian Endodontic Society and the Australian Osseointegration Society.
Dr Edward Pitts
Coming from a family of dentists, Dr Edward Pitts was born for the profession. After graduating from the University of Adelaide in 2012, he spent ten years working at a clinic in Hyde Park. There he honed his craft in various dentistry treatments, including dental implants. His passion for travel also led to him spending time volunteering in Vietnam to provide dental treatments in remote villages. His passion for his profession and for helping patients achieve smiles they can be proud of drives his commitment and approach to performing All-on-4® in Adelaide.
Dr Nicholas Wood
As a stakeholder in six South Australian clinics, Dr Nicholas Wood is one of the state’s youngest yet most accomplished practice owners. He graduated from the University of Adelaide with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery before pursuing a Masters of Clinical Dentistry in fixed and removable prosthodontics at London’s King’s College. He has extensively researched All-on-4® implant rehabilitation and trained under Dr Malo, providing him with the unique skills required to provide effective All-on-4® Adelaide treatment.
Benefits of Getting All-on-4® at Next Smile Australia Adelaide
You’ve seen that Next Smile Australia Adelaide is run by a capable and dedicated team. What are the other advantages of choosing us for your All-on-4® Adelaide treatment?
A proven 98% success rate*
Next Smile Australia Adelaide uses ‘The Malo Protocol’, Dr Malo’s own two-bridge treatment process. In stage one of this process, you receive your first set of provisional teeth, a “provisional bridge” that you wear for three to six months while your jawbone fuses with the implants. Once this process has finished, you’ll be ready for your ‘final bridge’ or final set of permanent teeth. *Studies have shown consistent success with this approach, with an implant survival rate of 98% over five years.
A new smile in 24 hours
While getting dental implants is often a lengthy and detailed process requiring multiple appointments, All-on-4® in Adelaide provides you with a new set of teeth often the moment you wake up from your surgery and always within 24 hours afterwards.
No bone grafting
When your jawbone lacks sufficient mass in some areas to support traditional dental implants, dental bone grafting is necessary. All-on-4® treatment strategically places implants so that there is no need for painful bone grafting.
Realistic-looking, functional teeth
Next Smile Australia’s All-on-4® treatment concept will allow you to use your teeth the way you used to, and you don’t have to remove them for cleaning.
Innovative techniques, advanced technology
The extent of Next Smile Australia’s knowledge of dental procedures is matched by the state-of-the-art technology we have in our Super Clinics. We’ll put both to good use when we deliver your All-on-4® treatment.
