Milestones/Special Mentions

Apple Dental

A huge congratulations to one of ITC’s long time supporters. Apple Dental celebrated its 25th birthday recently. Apple Dental is still local and still independent. Mark Casiglia posted on their Facebook page

25 years ago yesterday, I purchased a small dental practice and first walked through this door to commence my journey towards becoming Lane Cove’s most established current dentist. The practice was on Longueville Rd, Lane Cove. A lot has changed since 1992, but one thing has stayed the same: my passion to give patients the absolute best of myself, every step of the way.My family and I are proud to be an active part of the Lane Cove community.
Thank you for the last 25 years, Lane Cove.
